My comments don't have any feet.

Theresa - Yes! MLB Opening Day! In late July! The crack of the bat, the slap of fastballs hitting catcher's mitts, the roar of the ... well, I read that the crowd noise will be generated artificially since there are no fans in the stands. But apparently some fans can input votes for applause, cheers, boos, etc. My Astros were hoping to avoid the inevitable jeers about their sign stealing fiasco, but maybe not ... Ah, well, Verlander is pitching, with an ERA of about 2.5 in his several years with the Astros. Not bad for an old guy ...
