SD 13 is Next

First this tweet from yesterday:

C.O. Bradford tells me he has opted not to run for @RodneyEllis#SD13 seat. That leaves Coleman still deciding. Thompson, Miles & Green in.

Now that Sen. Rodney Ellis isn’t running for the State Senate District 13 position, here are the SD 13 candidates: State Rep. Senfronia Thompson, State Rep. Borris Miles, and former City Controller Ron Green. We have not heard from State Rep. Garnet Coleman.

I have no idea who should be considered the frontrunner. I have not talked to anyone about this contest. I don’t know who has hired consultants. I have not heard of anyone getting any endorsements. I wonder if the Chron E-Board will weigh in and make an endorsement like they did on the County Commissioner vacancy.

I need to do some homework on this race.

In August of 1999, the Chron Sports Section came out with the All Time ‘Stros Team. Who did they name as the three All Time Outfielders?

This tweet came out this morning and the rest is history:

From the NY Times:

Scotty Moore, a guitarist whose terse, bluesy licks on Elvis Presley’s early hits virtually created the rockabilly guitar style and established the guitar as a lead instrument in rock ’n’ roll, died on Tuesday at his home outside Nashville. He was 84.

He was the guitarist on “Hound Dog”, the first ever rock and roll 45 we owned. “Don’t Be Cruel” was on the B-Side of that RCA disc.

Cesar Cedeno, Jose Cruuuuz and Jimmy Wynn of course were named to the ‘Stros All Star Team as the three outfielders in 1999.

We are 17-8 in June and still 10 games out. We wrap up the month this afternoon in Anaheim then come home for a 10 game homie and don’t hit the road until after the All Star break.   I hope that diving catch by George Springer robbing Mike Trout of a base hit in the eighth inning got noticed by the AL All Star Team selectors.
