THEY WON A FREEWAY SERIES!  THEY WON A FREEWAY SERIES!

… despite getting ‘no-hit.’  Only in LA.

Onto Houston! Tally ho!

    We didn’t win a freeway series – I don’t think multiple hours away (aka The Rangers) counts the same. Plus we didn’t win that one. BUT. As I predicted (per my vote on the Astros website poll), we did take 2 out of 3 against last year’s world series champs. That was quite nice. I can only hope they carry that momentum into the next series, ahem.

    Do you remember An American Tail? (Ha! I just got the play on words. I’m smart.) You know that song Somewhere Out There? “…beneath the pale moonlight…” (squeaky mouse voice) That’ll totally be us tonight except instead of wishing on the same bright star, we’ll be screaming at the same bad ump. *tear* Now I’ve gone above and beyond. Below is my ode to watching a baseball game, but on different sides of the park, to the tune of Somewhere Out There.

    Somewhere out there beneath the outfield lights
    Someone’s thinking of me and cursing me tonight

    Somewhere out there someone’s saying a prayer
    That we’ll beat one another in that big ballpark out there

    And even though I know how very far apart we are
    It helps to think we might be wishing on the our own homerun stars

    And when the ninth inning starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
    It hurts to think you might be cheering underneath the same big sky

    Somewhere out there if baseball can see us through
    Then we’ll be together somewhere out there
    Out where small ball dreams come true

    Go ‘Stros!

    Bravo. If I were wearing a hat, I’d take it off to you (or at least in your general direction).

    Let’s pretend I genuflected instead.
