Friday, September 30, 2005

Today I found 11 cents. . . all pennies.

I didn’t record my first find until this evening when I was at the Astros game. While I was waiting in line for my one retro t-shirt which was a stadium give away today I spotted a penny on the ground. On my way home from the game I stopped at a Chevron station for a drink and found a penny on the ground by the door. My final find was nine cents at the Kwick Kar Wash.

Pathetic. This is the only word I can come up with to describe the Astros efforts over the past two days. We took a 1-0 lead early in the game but the Cubs tied it up and went ahead later in the game. We went ahead again, and our usually reliable closer, Brad Lidge, who I had talked to earlier in the day for quite some time by the bullpen, blew it in the 9th inning.

On the positive side one player, who will remain nameless, is very positive about the Astros chances. On my way home my cell phone rang and it was the aforementioned player. He invited me to a party Saturday night at an upscale club in town. He told me that a bunch of the guys are so confident that they will win tomorrow and clench that they have already rented a room to celebrate. Clench or not, the party is tomorrow and I’ll be there. Let’s hope the celebration isn’t premature.

Totals for the day: 11 cents
Race Totals: $172.08
