Props go to one of my best friends for leading the charge to bring wireless parking
meters to Houston - wireless parking meters? You will be able to pay the parking
meter by cell phone - cool. Of course, I just found out a few days ago about text
messaging. I'll keep some quarters handy just in case cause you'll still be able to
feed the meter some silver. You'll also be able to pay by credit card, I guess kind
of like at the gas station.
Since the immigration issue figures to be huge amongst the GOPers in the
Congressional District 22 race, maybe one of the candidates - in order to set
themselves apart - ought to come up with some kind of a Lenten campaign tactic and
give up paperless folks for the duration of the campaign, you know, not eat at
restaurants, cut their own grass, clean their own house, etc., you get the picture -
sacrifice by fasting. I think the far right voters might find it a bit more genuine
than outrageous rhetoric. Give it some thought.
Jimmy Rollins of the Phillies has a 38 game hitting streak going, he's 18 from the
record. Talk about pressure building. Back in '01, Commentary caught a Rollins foul
ball, actually it was a line drive that I snagged barehanded, never hit the ground -
I actually had a welt on my hand for a few days - don't believe me huh? The 6/23
Young Gun was there with me. My nephew was also at the game and should be able to
vouch for me.
Hanley Ramirez reads Daily Commentary. After I cracked on his name, he came back
the next day and went 4 for 5 with three RBIs - 'scuse me Hanley! The Fish also
have a player named Uggla - Dan U. Uggla - he plays second base. Dan U. Uggla!
Gotta figure this is one tough fella.
Ran into the 'Stros head ticket dude last night, he showed me his National League
Championship ring. It was pretty cool.
Time to root for Tiger again. let's see if he gets his 11th major.
