Before leaving Chiang Mai on October 12th with my family, and beginning our journey back to Boulder, Ford and I made a Yak board pledge of sorts concerning the upcoming American League Championship Series. Not only did the Astros beat my Yankees in an unforgettable display of all that baseball can be when it’s not debilitatingly boring, they did so with certain panache. And then they clobbered the Dodgers.
Congratulations Houston. And a swift recovery.
