The Astros are having a decent run right now but I don't want to jinx it by talking about it too much.
I freaking hate the Cubs so naturally I wanted to see the Astros play them live. We had some GREAT seats for Wednesday night's game.
The people around you can sure ruin a game for you, though.
We had this loud mouth sitting right behind us. He wasn't a horrible guy...he just loved to hear himself talk and had one of those voices that just penetrates your skull.
He was sitting with a group of men and he loudly asked them who manages the Cubs.
No one knew. He asked three different people in his group and still no one knew.
I couldn't stand it...after the third time I turned around and said "It's Lou Pinella!"
Talking Man decided to regale me with his baseball knowledge in return for my nugget of information.
J.R. Towles is too skinny to be a major league catcher, according to Talking Man.
Relief pitcher for the Cubs, Jon Leiber is too old.
Talking Man use to call high school baseball games and wouldn't you know it, he called a few of my alma mater's games.
But the most disturbing moment came when he was talking about the Baltimore Orioles.
He informed me that Baltimore was a toilet and also the Venereal Disease Capitol of the World...he followed that statement with a wink.
Yes. He winked.
My mouth dropped open. Was this some kind of line? Was he coming on to me with a line about VD?
I couldn't help but wonder if this usually works for him...because, you know...nothing turns me on more than STD trivia.
