Cheering for the Astros

I guess the next best thing to the Yankees not making it is the hometown Astros getting their first trip to the World Series. So, I will be cheering for them Saturday night.

One thing is certain - Roy Oswalt is a freak. That guy can pitch - and between him, Clemens and Pettitte (go Yankees!) and the pitching the White Sox are bringing, it should be a good World Series.

Oswalt was on Letterman last night reading a pretty funny Top 10 list:

Top Ten Perks Of Getting Into The World Series:
10. "Another two weeks of wearing a cup and showering with guys"
9. "Get to visit exotic, far-off destinations like Illinois"
8. "More time to discuss with team doctor if Cialis is right for me"
7. "With the discount, beer is only 18 bucks"
6. "It's fine and all, but the good news is, I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico"
5. "Certificate good for one free groin pull"
4. "I get to appear on my favorite Late Night program---'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'"
3. "World Series MVP gets to throw switch at Saddam's execution"
2. "Clemens used his AARP card to get us cheap hotel rooms"
1. "If Steinbrenner wants me next year, my price is now a billion dollars"
