@theragun getting a lot of nice free advertising during the #HomeRunDerby, as many of these power hitters reach for the gun after hitting for some therapeutic pounding. Those things are amazing.

Stupefying that @evilmopacatx slams 9 lanes into 2 at the Lake Austin-Sixth, Cesar Chavez-feeder cluster. And to then choke the road two more times between the river and 360. Unimaginably stupid engineering.
 
I'm embarrassed and deeply apologetic for that error I thought I had 11 lanes merging into 2
 
That was my original count but I figured there was no way in hell I could be right.

*Hot take alert* Restaurants should not have strongly scented hand soap, because that smell gets all up in your tastes buds and ruins the good vibes you’ve been creating in your mouth.
The woman cleaning tables at Mayfield @DairyQueen who just broke into song in the middle of Billy Ocean’s “When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going” just made my day. Half expected @DannyDeVito to stroll by playing a mini sax.
