The Texans are a dud (again), but tonight the Astros make their first postseason appearance in a decade – a long-overdue opportunity to rinse out the rancid taste of getting swept out of the 2005 World Series by the Chicago White Sox. Excitement is high. First pitch of the one-game AL Wild Card playoff at Yankee Stadium is 7:08 p.m. Houston time, the game will be telecast on ESPN and local bars are getting into the spirit with a vengeance. Some are offering drink specials to fans who show up in Astros gear, while others are just setting out another bowl of peanuts or two. Anyplace with a tap and a TV will be showing the game, surely, but hopefully there's a party near where you'll be this evening. Just please don't show up at Minute Maid Park looking for one, Astros officials urge. They want to watch the game, too.
