A Jim Crane letter, Jeremy Lin’s development, and a travesty of a football game (if you can call it that) in San Francisco.
- Sean Pendergast wrote about his thoughts on a letter from Jim Crane.
Correspondence matters. Not enough people tell other people how awesome they are these days in writing, mostly because it takes time and effort, and quite frankly, a lot of you are really lazy. Jim Crane is a lot of things, but lazy isn’t one of them.
- Jayne (What The Heck, Bobby) shared her thoughts on the Astros 2013 season.
- Greg Thurston (Climbing Tal’s Hill) gave his predictions on which Astros will likely be sent packing this offseason.
- Astros tweet of the day…
If “Save it nerds” isn’t the 2014 Astros’ bullpen slogan, they’re missing a golden opportunity

- Alex Kennedy (Hoopsworld) spoke with Jeremy Lin about his development.
Jeremy Lin just turned 25 years old last month and he’s entering only his second season as a full-time starter in the NBA. Over the course of his three-year career, he has started just 107 regular season games – less starts than fellow up-and-coming point guards Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight among others.

- Jerome Solomon (Houston Chronicle) gives his “Five things learned” from this latest Texans loss.
The Texans left their heart in Houston, but played a game in San Francisco and got torched 34-3. This is one of those situations in which mental health professionals can make a lot of money in a short period of time. Five things we learned from the embarrassing performance:
1. Quarterback Matt Schaub is in a bad place mentally….
- John McClain (Houston Chronicle) is always a great read after a bad Texans loss.
- Stephen Forsha (Toro Times) gave his rapid reaction to last night’s debacle in San Francisco.
- Texans tweet of the night…
Colt McCoy getting PT against the Texans officially makes this embarrassing.
