Hate in H-Town

The MLB will hold their Amateur Player Draft this evening. The first draft was held in 1965. Who was the first ‘Stro drafted in 1965? (You will never guess.)

H-Town leaders like to brag about H-Town being the most diverse city in the universe. I wonder what these folks will have to say when Donald Trump brings his hate and racist campaign to H-Town next Friday. Check this Miya tweet:

FYI, Tony Buzbee told me he’s expecting 250-400 at his house next week for @RealDonaldTrump Houston event. #abc13

I wonder if someone will let Trump know that H-Town is around 44% Latino and most of them are of Mexican heritage.

I wonder of Gov. Greg Abbott will show up and bring his Madrina.   If the governor does show up, I wonder if he will tell Trump that his Madrina is of Mexican heritage.

I wonder if Hunker Down is going to attend?

Roll call!

Commentary is talking about the 250-400 H-Town folks who will show up to fuel Trump’s hate and racist campaign.

Mark it down. Next Friday will surely be one of the most memorable political days in H-Town for sure.

The debate over whether Finding Dory features Disney/Pixar’s first same-sex couple will not end.

After the release of Finding Dory‘s latest trailer last month, there was rampant speculation that one scene featured a lesbian couple, which would be a Disney/Pixar first. The internet went nuts.

USA TODAY asked Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton at Wednesday’s world premiere if the couple depicted onscreen is indeed a lesbian couple. He neither confirm nor denied.

They can be whatever you want them to be,” said Stanton. “There’s no right or wrong answer.”

“We never asked them,” added producer Lindsey Collins.

“We have not asked that of any of the couples in any of our shots in any of our movies,” Stanton said.

Watching the full Finding Dory movie will not fully answer the question, either. The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene flies past during a key action moment and is only slightly longer than the snippet used in the trailer. There’s no conclusive evidence one way or another.


In 1965, the ‘Stros drafted Alex Barrett from Atwater High School in Atwater, CA, in the first round of the first ever MLB Amateur Player Draft of course. Barrett never made it to the big leagues.

Finally!   I am talking about our win last night over the Rangers. Now we are 1-8 against them this season
