Happy Saturday friends. You may need to help me this morning. I awoke and had this magnificent dream, but I had to shake myself to my senses.
Sometime in the middle of the night I needed a glass of water, then went back to sleep.
I was smiling.
Quick flash to the mound and this guy named Sam Deduno was pitching. Suddenly, I wondered if this dream wasn’t a nightmare flashback to 2011 or 2012. What is Sam doing on the mound at the beginning of the game? Ugghhh.
Then, ever so suddenly, the American League standings started to scroll across the top of my dream. No, not the bottom like ESPN, across the top like a weather bulletin. What? And, it was in red letters and was prefaced with a flashing BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
I just had to smile, almost laugh out loud! But it was a nice dream, nonetheless.
Still laughing when I write this: The Astros have the best record in the American League. 16-7. Yeah, right! 16-7! And five games up on the field?
What a dream, right?
And, hey, behind the standings’ scroll, it said Houston is 14-0 when scoring first and 13-0 when scoring 4+ runs! Houston has scored 4+ runs in 13 of 23 games? Come on!
Great, great dream, huh?
Oh, and then Luke Gregerson comes running in to save the day in the ninth inning and gives up two home runs. That guy! Wait, two home runs in the ninth and the Astros still win?!
Come on, pinch me!
Oh, well, I could go on…like there’s this one: The Astros had their best April since 1986. 1986? What are they trying to say? That the 2015 Astros are the 1986 team? Come on, man!
Pinch me please! Had any dreams like that? If so, what’s going on in your dreams?
