I have escaped…

…into a part of North Texas in which I have Internet and power.

Unfortunately there is no FSN, but that might be a good thing given the Astros’ recent performance.  It was enough to check the score on the computer.  Nobody really wants to watch their team get crushed by the MARLINS.  I mean, really.

The worst part is that it seems that every time the Astros win, the Rockies lose.  It’s like I have to sacrifice one team’s win for another team’s.  I was okay with that when they were playing each other, but not so much now.

Oh, and by the way, the Marlins are ONE GAME BEHIND THE ASTROS IN THE WILD CARD RACE.  Non mi piace (or no me gusta… got to work on that Spanish again).

I don’t really have much else to say.  I can’t expect Backe, who hasn’t been able to get in contact with family and friends since the, oh, I don’t know, HURRICANE to be able to pitch a good game.  I know they won’t use it as an excuse but COME ON.  The island is freaking underwater.  I think it works just fine as an excuse.

Ciao, amici.

    I think a hurricane is a perfectly fine excuse, who could really play when your home is a disaster zone? The Astros get a free pass here. On the flipside it is 75 and absolutely beautiful in Denver, the Rockies should be ashamed of themselves. The game the other night was weird, all the fair weather fans were no where to be seen, it was the emptiest Coors Field has been all year. I agree though, you have to love these grand slams and even better when they are hit by 2 of my top 3 players.
    I am the worst when it comes to checking my email, my aunts have given up on sending me the family newsletter and instead just call me every week(yes, we have a family newsletter and I have looked into disowning my family for it). Colorado is the place to live though so you should look into the WUE. Damn that was long, I’ll cut myself off here. Have a good day!
