Where are you going with that gun in your hand - put it down? Six years ago you were the "dahling" of Dems, this morning you are proof that heavy petting with W is a no-no within our Party. Don't let your humongous ego get in the way, give it up. Props go to yesterday's Connecticut Democratic Primary voters for sending a very powerful message. There won't be any dancing around the Iraq War issue for Dem Presidential wannabees in 2008 - and that's a good thing.
I guess the Astros didn't like that the ticket brokers were making a killing so the club got into the business. You see, in the past, we could try to sell them to a broker and the broker would tell you that they would be hard to get rid of, so you'd be lucky to get face value. Then you go to the ticket broker's website and see that they were selling them for a kazillion bucks. You could try ebaying them, but you sometimes you don't get action.
Now, the Astros get a percentage of the action - can't tell you how much - that's also a secret. Hey, I'm cool with that, so long as it goes to pay Roger. The sale amount goes into your account. It's not like a paypal deal where you can zap the buckos into your checking account. When someone buys your tickets, it goes into your account and your funds can only be applied to playoff or next year's season tickets.
Well, I logged onto my account this past weekend and saw that my account had been cleaned out. I called My Best Friend and he checked his account and he too had been cleaned out. After a couple of frantic calls to the Astros - me thinking that we had been hacked - the Astros said that they had applied the funds to playoff tickets.
Let's see, we're four games under .500, we have 50 games left to play, and we're already paying for playoff tickets. Now that is confidence!
