when Millie our 9 year old ragdoll rescue cat laid on the couch today it was a good omen as she has a history of laying in the same place during play off games.
Sounds more like a hen.

Texas Renaissance Festival. I work here for fun in the fall.
Badass.  It's been a while since I was there.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Definitely going to make it out this year. It's a blast.

Tucker starting in RF, batting 8th.

Machete catching, batting 9th.

Wow.

Counting on a lot of strikeouts from Cole and not many balls hit to RF, I guess. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

AJ: “He’s on this roster for a reason. Swung the bat extremely well against lefties. Think he’s earned it, needs to be utilized because he can impact the game.”

Meanwhile the Yankees are making short work of the Twins.

Tucker showed some pretty good defense after his call up. Looks like he covers a lot of ground and has a better than average arm.

I am filled with hate this time of year. I hate the Yankees.

I hate them all year round without any real effort.

I'm hoping he shows good defense tonight!

Both my kids are in fall sports so I haven't been able to watch many games since his callup. I was able to take the fam to see the Sept 6 game against the Mariners. Tucker pulled in a leaping catching over his shoulder and a sliding catch. The fam was impressed. I wasn't.

Those barely catches were more dramatic than necessary. Both catches he took a loopy route to the ball. Glad he pulled them off for the out but it wasn't pretty outfield defense.

Machete!
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it

I work in the campgrounds, if you are staying for a weekend. I run the showers and the kids campfire. It is exhausting, but always fun. Y'all come by and say hello if you get a chance.
It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of 'em was one kinda sombitch or another.

Lots of Astros representation here. Been high-fiving non-stop since I arrived.

So, you are to blame then.
