Houston, We Have an Unoriginal Headline

You ever wanted to attend a baseball game with Tom Hanks? That’s nice. We hope that works out for you.

How about the astronaut who was played by Tom Hanks in Apollo 13? Well, that we can do, so long as you’ve got some cash you’re willing to donate to a good cause.

The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, a non-profit devoted to giving money to college students studying science and technology, is auctioning off the chance to go to an Astros game with Apollo 13 Commander James Lovell.

Yeah, yeah, we know: The Astros suck. But maybe while you’re sitting behind home plate you can tell Drayton what's up. – Keith Plocek
