THIS IS LEGIT. Unless Covid returns full speed and ruins everything I have complete faith that we will be seeing baseball this summer.
I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE THE ASTROS GET BEAMED.

I don’t even remember what it was like to watch sports with my buddies. It’s been ages. Yes, I know footy is back but Saturday mornings sometimes don’t work for the boys.
Grab some friends and a case of beer. BASEBALL IS BACK BABY.
