The worm turns and about time, too!

Who could have predicted? Very few baseball people, I think, would have thought in March that the end of the first month of the new baseball season would find my lowly but no less beloved Houston Astros in first place in their division. But that's where they are! Regardless of the outcome of today's games, they will end April in first place.

After suffering through several years of below par teams, it has been a decided pleasure to see the team playing well and performing above expectations. Can they keep it up? Who knows? It's a long time until October. But no matter what happens, we'll always have April. And hope. Hope has been rekindled.

Go 'Stros!

  1. Being a long-time Cub fan, I can certainly relate:) I just can't get used to Houston being in the American League, though.

    1. Neither can I, Rose. It just seems wrong on so many levels.
