It’s amazing how quickly we become accustomed to things.
Probably in large part because I’m separated from my favorite team by 1,500 miles of road, I am constantly scouring the Web for anything and everything I can find about the Astros. What hometown fans get in five minutes on the local news, I take hours to discover.
How I ever managed to be an Astros fan before the Internet, I cannot fathom.
Recently, I discovered a link at the top of the MLB.com site: Press Pass. I followed it and discovered this gem: Every fan has access to the team’s official pre-game notes, as soon as they’re released by the team.
I quickly became an addict, scouring the notes before every game.
However, here we are a little more than an hour from the first pitch of today’s Astros-Yankees, game, and the Astros’ notes have not yet been released, and I am beginning to have serious withdrawals.
