The Curse of Enron

I can't believe I just watched that. Maybe the Astros really are cursed. I mean, they already seemed cursed in my youth: Don Wilson's suicide, J.R. Richard's stroke, the extra-inning losses to the Phillies in 1980, Game 6 against the Mets in 1986. But this takes the smothered cornbread. Pujols just destroyed that pitch. Poor Brad Lidge. He seems like a decent enough guy in interviews. I can't stand Roger Clemens, no matter how brilliant he has been over the years. I hate most things associated with Texas in this era of the surpassingly corrupt Bush Dynasty. Against Lidge, though, I don't have an animated animus. Well, there'll be one more meeting in St. Louis's underrated Busch Stadium. And even though the Astros are still up three games to two, I wouldn't bet against the home team.
