Swami Ramdev at George R. Brown Convention Center
Here in town to lead a five-day yog science camp and to announce the creation of a center in Rosenberg, the world's most famous yogi had thousands of acolytes breathing and posing over the weekend. I know I promised a more thorough report last week, but to be perfectly honest I skipped most of the last two days. Seven hours of sitting around and listening to a language I didn't understand was more than enough. I guess I had expected more follow-along technique and less lecture. It was cool watching the spritely swami hold court, but I think I'll just stick to the DVDs from now on.
Chicago Cubs vs. Houston Astros
The 'Stros won a couple (and lost one) to start the second half of the season. Also, they made a few roster changes, but they're not rebuilding, if that's what you were thinking.
Time to get this week going. More in a bit. -- Keith Plocek
