mellicious: Retro Houston Astros logo (Astros - retro)

Regarding my last couple of entries, in which I bitched about the cold weather and the price of baseball tickets, I am informed that I am no longer allowed to gripe on those two subjects. Apparently those are reserved for Bostonians.

I heard some Survivor on the radio (had the 80s station on again) and that reminded me of something funny from the baseball game: between innings, they had the two guys come out who do those Bud Light "Real American Heroes" commercials - the announcer and the singer, who not-so-coincidentally is the former lead singer of Survivor - and they did a special version just for the Astros game. Mostly what I remember is something about Houston being a real city with real people and real food, etc, etc - "In other words, this ain't Dallas!" Which of course got tremendous applause. (For you non-Texan types, Houston and Dallas do not generally get along. To put it mildly.) I am guessing that those guys do a regular circuit at baseball games and other such places where large quantities of beer are consumed, but I still thought the concept of seeing a live performance of a beer commercial was, well, an interesting one.

The Astros actually won their games the last two days, and today they were snowed out (in Chicago, not here) so hey, they swept a series! And they are on to Philly or someplace next, so we can expect more nasty weather, probably.

I cannot possibly imagine which Boston-area reader might have told you to stop griping about the weather and the cost of baseball tickets.

I am actually kind of rooting for tomorrow's game to be cancelled due to snow/rain/whatever horrible wet mix we're supposed to get, because my doctor -- located less than a block from Fenway Park -- scheduled an appointment for me only a couple of hours before tomorrow's game. I have a rule about not running errands anywhere near the Kenmore Square area when the Sox are in town, because to do so is utter insanity. We'll see who gets to win tomorrow, me or the Sox.

I didn't know the singer in those commercials was the (former) lead singer of Survivor! I love those ads.
