Quote of the Evening

Joe Buck on Enron Field:

There's the train, part of the flavor of this . . . stadium.

* * *

Trivia: The train, of course, is a tribute to Houston's old Union Station, which now forms one of the park's entrances. But did you know that any batter who hits the replica locomotive on a fly wins a free Blizzard at any participating local Dairy Queen? Just another wacky ground rule that makes Houston Astros baseball the pure sporting thrill that it is.

...Late Update: Did Fox just lead into the top of the 7th with "I'm So Bored With The U.S.A."? ...On second blush, I think it was "Complete Control," which probably makes a bit more sense title-wise. But, hell, why not hit us with a little "White Riot"?
