A Testy Riddle for Comic Relief as we less-than-patiently await the Yankee storm that will now descend upon us in less than ten hours at this writing. ….

Question: Why do Astro players never make contact with their dogs as these pets are returning from a trip to the back yard?

Answer: Because their pets always race back to the house on a darting path that inevitably finishes low and away.

C’mon, Astros! Houston hasn’t had much to brag about since we once saw the 32-story Gulf Building go up as “The Tallest Skyscraper in the South!” May the force of all us diehard Astro fans go with you tonight ~ and with the wonderful Mr. Justin Verlander and all his teammates too! ~ Then go out Saturday and punch our tickets to the World Series, guys! ~ We will be with you all the way, body and soul!
