Astros 2, Padres 0
The Astros finally did it. They finally won their 10th road game of the season. The monkey is off their back. Only wins will follow the team now. They also did it with Happ on the mound and Bogusevic in the line-up. Unbelievable. I honestly started to wonder if it would ever happen. Do you realize how hard it is to get over the hump of winning your 10th road game. It was all most people could talk about. When was it going to happen? Who’d be the winning pitcher? What team would suffer the defeat by the Mighty Astros? All these questions and more have been answered.

On a personal note, not got be accompanied with song lyrics. I am getting ready to go on vacation. I fly out Thursday to go to a soccer tournament in San Diego – my niece is participating, I get to be a soccer-mom. It should be a fun time. We are going to the Astros game Thursday night, sitting on the 3rd base side. I’ve set my dvr to record the game, you never know when you might get on the television. I am also taking my niece and one of her friends to tour a couple universities while there. The rest of the time is soccer games and beach time. Should be a good trip.
After the tournament trip, we go back to San Antonio and begin the 2012 Road-Trip Extravaganza. We seem to be going to many of the same places as we did last year. Makes one wonder why we would do that again. Well, the soccer playing niece gets a college tour trip. Yep, we will be visiting a couple colleges along the way. Vanderbilt, Duke and Kentucky. Nothing cheap for this girl. I hope her dad did a good job on her college fund. I should be able to get in a Lexington Legends game this time. And this time, when we go to Chocolate World, I am eating the candy bar and not saving it.
I’ll be back in August, I’m sure you all will notice I’m gone. But Mr. Happy said he would cover the Monday games while I’m out. I hope he does a better job at writing recaps than I do.
