We have no baseball, and so, in the interim, while I’ll be finding some baseball things to write about, the baseball stuff will be fairly scant.

So why not have random ass polls about things that don’t matter?

We did polls every weekday beginning seven weeks ago. Monday we asked, what is the best flavor of Pop Tart? Tuesday we asked, what is the best color? Wednesday we asked, what is the best (non-Texas) state? Thursday we asked, what was your first car? Friday we asked, what is the best pizza topping?

As for the six week ago polls — Monday we asked what your favorite Star Wars movie was. Tuesday we asked, what is the best fast food hamburger? Wednesday we asked, who has the best fast food french fries? Thursday, continuing the food theme, we are asking, what is the best Tex-Mex dish? Friday we asked, what is the best pet?

Five weeks ago, Monday we had a question that has ripped apart families and led to blood feuds on LSB...should chili have beans in it? Tuesday we asked, who is your favorite former Texas Rangers manager? Wednesday we asked, who is your favorite Looney Tunes character? Thursday we asked, what is the best condiment? Friday, we asked, what is your favorite National League team?

Four weeks ago, we started on Monday by asking, what is your favorite (other than the Rangers) American League team? Tuesday we asked, what is the best letter of the alphabet? Wednesday we asked, what is the best Trivial Pursuit category? Thursday we asked, what is the best species of non-domestic cat? Friday we asked, what is your favorite Monopoly board game group of properties?

Three weeks ago, Monday we asked, of the Texas Rangers second round draft picks who have made the majors, who is your favorite? Tuesday we asked, what is your favorite numeral? Wednesday we asked, what is your favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie? Thursday we asked, what is your favorite Quentin Tarantino movie? Friday we asked, what is your favorite musician or musical act with an animal name?

Two weeks ago, we asked on Monday, who is the best (original) Clue suspect? Tuesday we asked, what is the best Clue room? Wednesday we asked, what is the best Clue weapon? Thursday we asked, of the Texas Rangers fourth round draft picks who have made the majors, who is your favorite? Friday we asked, what is your favorite (or least despised) AFC team?

Last week, on Monday we asked, what is the best two-dimensional shape? Tuesday we asked, what is your favorite Noble Gas? Wednesday we asked, what is your favorite soft drink? Thursday we asked, what is your favorite halogen? Friday we asked, what is your favorite Martin Scorsese movie?

This week, on Monday we asked, what is the best biological kingdom? Tuesday we asked, what is your favorite brand of athletic shoe? Wednesday we asked, what is your favorite chess piece?

Today we ask, who is your favorite signer of the Declaration of Independence?
