shaping up for a great season….

doesn’t take a trip to Delphi to forecast with precision that 2009 is gonna suck hard for major sports.  NPR’s Planet Money gives us some highlights.

while the Astros are not explicitly mentioned, let’s look at some key facts:

1) oil is no longer $140 barrel

2) Houston’s economy is driven mostly by the energy sector, re: oil

3) the national economy is in the shitter, unemployment is going up, people are worried

4) Wal-mart McLain is spending the best way he knows how: by locking up aging veterans that no one in their right mind would want/pick/choose

you heard it here first – gonna be a great season!
