Rosa Parks, one of the most courageous woman in American history, died yesterday. She made a difference.
Looks like Major League Baseball (MLB) is going to close the roof at Minute Maid this evening. MLB is full of sh__! We had to play in the rain and cold Sunday night, why can't we close our roof - it's our pad? MLB is saying the 'Stros use the closed roof as an advantage. I don't understand that - isn't it loud in both dugouts? Off the field, the advantage the 'Stros have is 43,000 plus enthused fans. MLB Commissioner Bud Selig will step in "for the good of the game" and make a decision that will only pi__ off Houston fans. Regardless, the World Series comes to Downtown Houston this evening - finally.
Speaking of Downtown Houston, the money grubbing, price gouging parking lot owners will be out in force today. During the NLCS, lots that normally sold for $7 were charging $20 - expect that lot to go to $25-30 this evening. I'll be walking a far piece this evening.
