Yes, I know it is “Opening Day” but seeing as how Bud and MLB decided to maximize money, “Opening Day” was actually held last week at a time and place where fans of the teams who were playing couldn’t see the actual game. More money for MLBAM, I suppose. And of course, “Opening Day” was yesterday, in Washington, DC – a nice low scoring, good pitching NL game minus the evil scourge of the DH.
But when the Astros first game of the year is not here at home, somehow, in spite of Bud, The Red Sox, ESPN, MLBAM, The New Stadium That Needed To Be Shown Off, it just doesn’t somehow FEEL like the Astros REAL Opening Day.
But the season is finally here after too long a winter and I’m just elated to be watching real Astros baseball every day now.
