Getting In Shape

Commentary went to a gathering of the late Fred Arnold’s family and friends yesterday.  There were a bunch of folks there that I had not seen in a while.  It was a great event. It was held outdoors under tents and canopies. The temperature was bearable. I am glad I went. 

When the pandemic started, Commentary gave up my gym membership.  The gym let me get out easily.  After not being able to go to the gym in 16 months, I noticed it for sure.  Last week I went out and bought some weights and stuff to try to get back into shape.  I actually noticed that I could not lift as much as I used to.  That’s sad.  I am trying to get back into it.

Everyone knows Commentary watches “Today.” It is kind of weird that the Olympic coverage is now in full force in a country that has a COVID-19 problem.  I am thinking the coverage will have a lot of stories about athletes who test positive. 

Just so you know. Bruce Springsteen’s daughter, Jessica, is an equestrian Olympian.   

On the Texas GOP 2022 primary race for AG between Ken Paxton and George P. Bush, we are definitely going to see who the worse human being in the state is.  Both of those fellas are already lowlife campaigning. 

There is a front page Chron story on P’s General Land Office still sitting on Hurricane Harvey money while folks in H-Town’s Pleasantville neighborhood are still waiting for assistance.   

The Astros are back at The Yard for a six game homie with Cleveland and the Rangers. I am still not attending.
