The Astros are stepping up their Twitter game with Rally Pups. Yes, cute doggies wearing ‘stros caps. Go on Twitter and check out the Astros’ official twitter feed, because they are retweeting them and there are too many cute puppies to post them all here.
Today is the anniversary of two deaths in rock music history. Both were caused by their own foolishness, both tragic and senseless. We all know about Kurt Cobain but today I want to remember Layne Staley, the lead singer of Alice in Chains.
