Qatar may have the World Cup, but we have our own game, thank you very much. Here you see two balls hit from 40 feet out. 🏏 The closer ball to the manhole, and the bottle-knock bonus, are good for three points and two points, respectively. Final score in the Late Fall Classic: 15-10.🏆 #manhole #baseball #sports #latefallclassic #sports #backyardsports #houston #texas #shotoniphone #shadows #grass #worldcup via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/Cld8yz0OAe4/

Yeah the Longhorns had more fans here 🏈 but the ‘Stros are the champs! ⚾️🏆 #armadilloden #austin #texas #beergarden #outdoorlighting #shotoniphone #nightphotography via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CkoCf90pNzo/
“How can a guy think and hit at the same time?”
In honor of last night’s World Series no-hitter (this first since 1956) here’s a quote from Yogi Berra, the guy who never said most of the things he said. 🤷🏻♂️
Apparently he was frustrated with his coach, who told him to think his way out of a batting slump. 🤷🏻♂️

If you’ve tried to hit a 90 mph pitch (which I did once or twice at a batting cage), you know exactly what he’s talking about. You can’t even see the ball at that speed much less think about hitting it.
What are some other things you can’t think and do at the same time? Offhand I’m thinking of skateboarding, singing, dancing, playing guitar, shuffling a deck of cards, telling a joke…
