The Fat Lady is Warming Up

The Astros squeaked by the Cardinals to take a 3 – 1 advantage into their best of 7 series this afternoon. I say squeaked because nothing was certain until the last out had been recorded on a double play, which if not completed would have permitted the tying run to score.
The Astros have never been to the World Series and it looks like this might be a first. Pettit, Oswalt and Clemens are lined up as needed; the fat lady was seen warming up in the bull pen next to Lidge. ( special note: this was not a weight challenged woman or any other PC term intended to portray excessively large builds as anything other than fat; she's there to sing, not to look at ) While this may not constitute a “spiritual” blog, something I normally reserve for Sunday; there is no doubt that our spirits are soaring here in Houston. Go Astros!
