Well the Astros blew it last night. But like I said yesterday, everybody wants a Game 7 anyway. Across the pond, the Carabao Cup games pretty much went according to plan. A couple of big boy matchups today. Let’s see what kind of team each of them put out there.

Explorer (and exploiter, appropriator, genocidal maniac, and enslaver – WaPo) Christopher Columbus was born on this day.

Now go have a great day!
