The Chron ran a story over this past weekend about former Texas attorney general
John Hill going to DC to lobby for Harriet Miers. Hill is a partner in the law firm
that Miers used to run. The Chron called Hill a Democrat. Sorry Chron. Hill gave
up his Demship years ago. The fella campaigned for W in 2000. Can't remember the
last time he supported a Dem.
The Cards have to win three in a row to deny us a trip to the World Series. I don't
think that's going to happen. There is a good chance tonight will be the greatest
night in Houston sports history. Props go to the Commentary reader/fan that snuck
into the Cardinal clubhouse Friday night and stole Albert Pujols' bats. The coolest
dude in baseball lost his cool yesterday and got the heave ho. Talking about Tony
LaRussa arguing strikes. Dude wasn't wearing his shades - maybe that's why he lost
Got a call Friday from Channel 11. They said they wanted to do a story on me and
my foul balls - part of Astromania, I guess. I met the Channel 11 reporter and
photographer at the yard yesterday before the game - gave them an interview. The
story is supposed to air today during the five o'clock news. Thought about wearing
my Laura Salinas T-shirt during the interview, you know, the one that says "the only
candidate that actually lives in District 143." Decided not to, Laura will win
without foul balls. Guess what? Around the second inning I caught a foul
ball.....awwww! Didn't give it to a kid.
I saw one of my favorite Cub fans the other evening. I asked him if he was rooting
for the Chicago White Sox. He said a true Cub fan hates the Sox. I asked him if he
was rooting for the 'Stros. He said a true Cub fan hates the Cards. I guess a lot
of folks in Chicago will be rooting for the Astros this evening - GO 'STROS!!
