Early Vote Next Week

Early Voting in Person starts next Monday here locally. We have state constitutional amendments, H-Town city bonds, and HISD and HCC trustee races.   Your guess is as good as anyone’s as to who will turn out to vote.

Sone folks say only the “hard core” voters will show up to vote. What is a hard core voter? Someone like Commentary who has not missed an election in like forever? Someone who hasn’t missed an election in the past 10 years? 5 years?

Who even knows that there is an election? Folks who read the Chron? Folks who read their campaign mailers? Folks who pay attention to campaign yard signs? City of H-Town employees?

We will start finding out next Monday.

Name the teams that the ‘Stros have eliminated in MLB playoff history?

Commentary thinks we are catching some good breaks in our playoff run.   Two years ago, the opposing catcher makes the catch and tags out Jose Altuve and we go into extra innings and lose. Altuve is out if Gary Sanchez holds on to the ball Saturday. Who would have thought that the Yankees would beat Cleveland in three straight and we win the ALCS home field advantage? Marwin Gonzalez’s and Josh Reddick’s throws Friday and Saturday. We are catching some breaks. It is about time.

The ‘Stros eliminated The ATL in the 2004 and 2005 NLDS, San Luis in the 2005 NLCS, the Yankees in the 2015 Wild Card game, and Boston in the 2017 ALDS of course.

Commentary snagged a foul ball at Saturday’s game.

Game 3 starts at 7 pm this evening.

Game 4 starts at 4 pm tomorrow.
