I was out yesterday afternoon, I had to pick up some pet-friendly salt for the sidewalk and driveway, looks like ice might be a small issue. Anyway, as I pulled up, I thought that I would check to see if there was any score in the Cardinals-Braves game. Well, indeed there was. It was the top of the first inning and the Cardinals were up 10-0. I couldn’t quite believe it. I didn’t really care who won the game, but was hoping for a good game. It ended 13-1, so just a bit of a blowout.
In the second game, Washington was playing game five in LA and were down for most of the game. I went to bed before it was over, I was tired, fell asleep on the couch actually. I discovered upon waking this morning that the Nationals came back from a 3-0 deficit and won with a grand-slam in the 10th inning. I am no fan of the Dodgers so I was pretty dang happy about that.
So, the NLCS is set, Cardinals vs Nationals and I don’t have a preference really. I suppose it would be nice for the Nationals to get to the dance. It shouldn’t really matter, I think the AL will take the World Series.
Tonight is game five of the Astros-Rays series. It’s back in Houston and I am hoping that Houston will take it and take it in a big way. The home team hasn’t done a great job, in general, this post-season when you look at the other series. Houston has done very well at home though, so I hope it continues tonight. If so, that would set up an amazing series, the Yankees vs the Astros. That will be the best series we will see, I am sure.
I hope to be able to catch some playoff action in Ontario. I am staying at my brother in laws place and he doesn’t have cable any longer, but I am bringing my Chromecast with me, so I can stream games. Time will be more of an issue, I think, I have a lot of plans. I am sure I will squeeze some games in there though.
Enjoy the rest of the playoffs and Go Astros. #TakeItBack
