And I Stayed Up For This?

As I sit here bleary eyed this morning I have to ask myself why did I do that? Why did I watch the Astros game(marathon)? Worse yet why were there any fans left in the stands? Eighteen innings for nothing. Maybe they should have brought Andy in to pitch relief. Even though he pitches this afternoon. Roger started the game and as usual got no help, of course he didn't help himself much either. Even Jim Deshaies' "good luck charm" jacket could not help. Nothing worked, yet again. Brad Lidge could have closed the game. The Astros were ahead in the ninth 6-5. One more time Lidge didn't do his job. As a result the game went into extra innings. On and on the game went. Both teams used just about every available player. Is it time to give up? Well, the 'stros are still within striking distance of the Wild Card. But, it is begining to look more and more that they can start making Oct. vacation plans.
And to think that the Texas Rangers wanted to trade for Lidge. The Astros could still turn things around. Or it could freeze here next week. Take a wild guess to see which happens first.

The Longhorns and the Tide both open their seasons Sept. 2. The Texans won their first preseason game. Ok so it's only preseason. But maybe it's time to shift interest from baseball to football. After all, looks like the Astros will soon be clearing out their lockers. Maybe football will be better.
