Astros Pre-ALCS Workout

Houston Astros general manager and president of baseball operations Jeff Luhnow talks with manager AJ Hinch during a workout before the American League Championship Series on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 at Minute Maid Park. The Astros will open the best-of-seven ALCS against the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday.

For the first time since I started at The Daily News, there was a Houston Texans game on this Sunday, and I didn’t watch it — not because I’m giving up on them or anything like that.

No, I took a personal day. One of my best friends — who is really more like a brother — was ordained as a pastor at his church Sunday. The ceremony began shortly before the Texans kicked off, and the celebration lasted well after.
