MMMMMMM…Gourmet Delight!

I love gourmet twists on home cooking classics, and this is the most “gourmet” sandwich I’ve ever seen. Just take a look at the ingredients after the mouthwatering picture. I wouldn’t mind just getting my hands on some black truffle mayonnaise.

Opening Day.  Let's get it on!

I’m posting this a little late, but here’s a picture I took from the roof of my building during the first inning yesterday. I didn’t get to go to the game, but Roy O looked great. The hitting left a little to be desired, but I’ll cut them some slack because Donrelle Willis is a pretty good pitcher. I’m going to the game tonight. I expect Andy to hold it down well, and, hopefully, the bats will pick it up. It’s great to have baseball back!

UPDATE: My favorite Astros/everything Houston blogger, Tom Kirkendall, has his 2006 ‘Stros preview up. His posts are always full of juicy sabermetrics. Makes me happy. 🙂
