I went to my first Astros game in something like 27 years, and wouldn’t you know, HudsonHawk wisely picked the game where we could all give Jeff Bagwell a standing ovation. I’m glad I got to see Opening Day and all, but when I look back on it, the Bagwell moment will be what I remember.
Well, that and watching Budgirl ogle Brad Ausmus’s ass from a quarter-mile away.
The Astros didn’t look so hot in the first series, but it was enough to take two games from the Fish. Next up are the Nationals, who just dropped two of three to the goddamn fucking Mets.

MLB Extra Innings – I don’t know. All their website says is “Check Back Next Season for an Updated Schedule.” Unfortunately for me, Arkansas is blacked out for the Astros, so I may as well have taken my $159 and bought another shirt at The Shed. (And by the way, the selection of Astros shirts to buy at Minute Maid was pretty weak in my opinion.)
Yvette is busting out the goodies again this series, with pins, pennants, foam fingers, and NL champion posters ready to give away. The rack of promo items has been copious thus far.
And speaking of Yvette’s copious rack, I can’t believe I actually heard Vince Young and Milo telling horny jokes about her tits the other night. Holy Toledo, it sounded like they both wanted to split the big wagon-gate in center.
