Cancun Cruz Hate

Commentary is thinking that Sen. Cancun Cruz still thinks he has a shot at being president of the USA.  That is why he is hating and pandering. He wants the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the same sex marriage ruling. Come on, Cancun.

America is way past where Cancun wants to go. All you have to do is watch the Hallmark Channel.  Earlier this year, I pointed out “Love Classified.”  This past weekend there was “Campfire Christmas.” In 2020, “The Christmas House,” followed up a year later with “The Christmas House 2.”  Just to name a few.

All these flicks prominently featured LGBTQ relationships and storylines. 

Heck, a majority of Texans support same sex marriage. The Texas GOP doesn’t, but they don’t represent who Texas is these days.

I guess Cancun thinks playing the hate card is his pathway to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He is such a pathetic and pitiful person.

There is another story in the Chron today about the Harris County DA’s prosecutors and the indicted staff members of the Harris County Judge.  It is just infuriating. Sigh.

Speaking of infuriating, the Department of Public Safety is going to look into why they had 91 DPS troopers standing around at Robb Elementary.

The Dinger Derby was held last night at Dodger Stadium. Folks forget that in 1960, for a few months they ran a TV program called “Home Run Derby.” MLBers at the time participated including Hall of Fame greats Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Gil Hodges, Al Kaline, Harmon Killebrew, Mickey Mantle, Eddie Mathews, Willie Mays, Frank Robinson, and Duke Snider.  They would play nine innings. An out was a non-home run hit ball and strikes.

Hank Aaron had the most appearances with 7 and Mickey Mantle having the most total dingers with 44 in 5 appearances.

$2,000 was awarded to the winner and $1,000 to the loser, with $500 bonuses for hitting 3 consecutive dingers.  Aaron came away with the most money won with $13,500.

It was held during the off season and all episodes were filmed in Los Angeles at old Wrigley Field.

Now you know.

I was watching the All Star Game festivities on the MLB Network yesterday. They did a live interview with Angels stars Shoehi Ohtani and Mike Trout. What they didn’t get asked is why they were 20 ½ games behind the Astros.

I will watch the game this evening. I sure hope Dusty Baker gets Kyle Tucker into the game for a couple of at bats and Framber Valdez to pitch an inning.

Astro Mauricio Dubón is 28 today. Happy Birthday, Mauricio!
