Division Series

There was a gathering yesterday of young conservatives that was organized by Cong. Dan Crenshaw. Here is the Trib’s headline on the event:

At Houston youth summit, young conservatives weary of GOP infighting

Here is the Chron’s online headline:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s youth summit aimed at energizing young GOP voters

Here is the Chron’s hard copy headline:

Abortion, liberals criticized at summit

Which one did you attend?


Community Impact asked the Harris County Judge candidates a few questions before the election. Here is one to Alex Meaner:

How will you work with your colleagues on the court to get things done?

Our priority on commissioners court will be public safety, and as long as we are in agreement that that is the top priority, we will be able to find ways to work together. My obligation as judge will be to our residents above partisan politics. [Previously], Harris County worked in a bipartisan fashion and didn’t get bogged down in left vs. right. That’s what I believe we need to be moving toward.

What she is saying is when the GOP controlled Commissioners Court, it was bipartisan. Kind of like what is mine is mine, and what is yours is negotiable. She probably thinks we can’t figure out her game.


The Chron did a piece yesterday on the candidates running for County Clerk. Stan Stanart wants to run the elections again.  The only thing that I miss from Stanart is the posting of Early Votes at 7:01 pm.  We now get them around 7:10 to 7:14 pm. That’s a lot of refreshes hits.  We now have voting wherever you want, more early voting locations, 7:00 am starts for the first five weekdays of early voting, and one day of late night early voting. Sorry, Stan.


I saw this story on Daily Beast:

A California school district has barred a pro-police “Thin Blue Line” flag from a high school football team’s pregame ceremony because it made some in the community “feel uncomfortable and unwelcome.” The decision angered some fans who brought their own flags to Friday night’s game at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita. The practice of carrying the flag onto the field became the focus of social media outrage, which led the district to step in. “While many embrace the symbol as simply a celebration of law enforcement, others have shared their feeling that the symbol has sometimes been co-opted by intolerant individuals with an agenda to divide and exclude,” William S. Hart Union High School District Superintendent Mike Kuhlman wrote in a letter about the controversy.

I just have to ask what’s the point of having the flag included at a high school football game? It is a high school football game.


Most GOPers are gutless and spineless these days. They have totally embraced the worthless Herschel Walker.

I stopped watching “Meet the Press” because the regular host keeps bringing on the deniers. Yesterday’s fill-in host Kristen Welker was disappointing in not pressing a GOP member of congress on his reaction to the U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville racist rant at the Donald Trump rally in Nevada Saturday night. Welker is better than that.

That is the same rally where Trump said his January 6 crowd was his biggest crowd ever. Today’s GOP.


Hoda Kotb interviewed Julia Roberts and George Clooney this morning on their new movie and longtime friendship.  Their new movie is “Ticket to Paradise.” The other movies the two have made together are “Ocean’s 11,” “Ocean’s 12,” “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” and “Money Monster.”


There was some good baseball played this past weekend. Let me say this about the #SpringerDinger and Jays shortstop Bo Bichette collision that resulted in the Mariners scoring three runs, tying the game, and eventually winning. #SpringerDinger was going to catch that flyball. Oh, well, that’s baseball. Get well, #SpingerDinger.

Commentary thinks the Wild Card series format was A-Okay.  Three visiting teams won. The Mariners, Padres, and Phillies. Only Cleveland won at home.

From a Fox Sports tweet last night:

The #Mets are now the first 100-win team to fail to reach the Division Series since the Division Series was implemented in 1995.

It is Division Series time. From the there is nothing I can fuc_ing do about it department.  The times have been set for the first two games of the ALDS and we have mid-afternoon starts on Tuesday and Thursday.

The Mariners and Astros, Padres and Dodgers, and Phillies and The ATL all are matchups of teams from the same divisions.

This will be our sixth straight ALDS. We played the Red Sox in 2017, Cleveland in ’18, the Rays in ’19, the A’s in ’20, and the White Sox last year. Oh, yeah. We won them all. Got it?

We know the Mariners well. Tomorrow will be the 20th time we face them this season.
