Astros win the pennant

How about that?

I have a feeling there’ll be a higher than usual occurrance of absenteeism and tardiness in the workplace tomorrow. Somehow, I think it’ll be overlooked.

Congratulations to the Astros and to all their long-suffering fans. And just so you know, those 1914 Braves – the only other team to make the postseason after being 15 games below .500 – they swept the Athletics in the World Series. On to Chicago!

    I really wish I could skip my Biology class tomorrow, but I’ll be there by 7:50 am. Ugh.

    I’m happy for Biggio, Bagwell, and Bergman in particular, but for all those ex-Astros who came close, too.

    Congratulations to the Astros. They have recent history on their side since the last three World Series champions have been wild cards. Of course, since the beat the Cards, that may help or hurt their chances. 🙂
