Baseball and the Firm

Last night, the featured recruiting event was the Astros 6-1 victory over the Diamondbacks. It was great to watch the Rocket pitch. Also, it was nice to play the D-backs because one could expect a win. But the best part was the eating.

Simply wonderful. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the club level with a buffet of hotdogs, hamburgers, Buffalo wings, ice cream, peanuts and lots of beer. And we could take all we wanted. By the second inning, I had downed two dogs with mustard and kraut, six wings and was headed back for a Haagen Dazs bar. I was in heaven!

All this food, a win and even a new gimmie hat. Good times!


  • The best summertime activity, by far, a baseball game and good hot dogs.
    Was the "Big Unit" pitching for the D-Backs?

  • Against the D-Backs, a win is certainly expected, except for the team that lost to them 2 nights ago to snap their 14-game losing streak... I forget which team that was.

    Speaking of the "Big Unit", I remember one of the best fan signs I've seen being held up at the World Series agains the Yankees in '01. Randy Johnson was the starting pitcher, and the sign read:

    "It takes more than 9 Yanks to beat our Johnson."

  • I'm surprised you don't see more signs like that, referencing the "Big Unit". The possibilities seem to be endless.
