Was scanning the hometown Longview News-Journal, a beacon of journalistic integrity (I'm pretty sure they haven't discovered spell check nor fact checking), has a poll going on the sports page about who the next East Texas athlete to get called up to the bigs will be. Like just about all other Rangers fans, everyone is preeeetty horny about Chris Davis getting called up to the bigs, and through 2 starts he definitely has not disappointed. It also references Malcolm Kelly getting drafted, but considering he played at OU and now for the Redskins, even though he went to my high school, I just can't get that excited about it. Regardless, there are 5 names in the poll, including two of Purple Pansy's Longhorns, but guess who is winning? You guessed it, Stephen Hodge (No Henson? Really, Longview?). Sure there might be fewer than 100 votes, but in pride battles such as this one, every victory counts. So, if you have any interest, here's the link and vote Hodge into the deep annals (take that as you will) of East Texas sports history.
