29 Days

Have the Astros ever swept a MLB playoff series?

The folks who are opposed to the H-Town Firefighters’ Prop B tell us they are not against Firefighters but opposed to the fiscal implications of Prop B or something like that. Last night, during the Texans-Cowboys game, they ran a TV ad opposed to Prop B. It was an effective ad and didn’t come across as anti-Firefighter. Commentary can’t say the same thing about the snarky stuff I am seeing on social media. The anti-Prop B stuff I am seeing is coming across as anti-Firefighter pure and simple. That’s too bad. I don’t know if it is a good thing or bad thing that there are only 29 days left of this stuff.

BTW: A pro Prop B mailer landed in my mailbox this past Saturday. It was pretty good. I am also seeing pro Prop B signs in my neighborhood next to Beto signs.

A Saint Arnold at The Yard this season was a pricey $11.25. The post-season price is $14.25. For the extra 3 bucks, you get a “Never Settle” plastic souvenir glass. Oh, well.

Nope, the Astros have never swept a MLB playoff series or course.

It was definitely electric at The Yard this past weekend. It helps when you win.

One thing is for sure. There will be more baseball at The Yard this post-season.

Let’s sweep!
