Goodbye, Luby’s

63 days.  Nine weeks from today we get President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Counting down the days.

Big Papi is 45 today.  Happy Birthday, David Ortiz.

In case you are wondering.  Big Papi hit 7 of his 541 career dingers off of Astros pitchers – 2 at The Yard.  Now you know.
