program notes

Coming soon to a Plunk Biggio blog near you, more preseason notes including previews of each team the Astros will be facing in 2006 and what kind of plunk totals we should expect out of each of them. I'll be posting intermittently through spring training, working up to full speed when the games start to count.
Also, coming up in March I'll be visiting Astros spring training, so hopefully we'll get some pictures to post from there. I'm assuming they have a special batting cage with a pitching machine aimed right at the batters box, and if they don't I might have to do some photo doctoring. We'll be attending the March 11th game against the Phillies, so if you're there and figure out which one is me, please resist the urge to throw anything at me.
(If anyone has specific suggestions for good non-baseball places to visit in the area, the official girlfriend would like to hear them via comment or email - yes, we know there are 108 theme parks nearby but think in terms of having just one day, and not wanting to ride the theme park cyclo-puke within 24 hours of getting on a plane.)

(This is probably a long shot ...)


They have many (over 100?) large cats, like tigers, ocelots, jaguars, cervals, wildcats, snow leopards, etc. If you go at the right time, you can feed them. Nothing in my experience comes close to feeding a quarter of a chicken to a large tiger. Yowza!

If you’re up for nature-y stuff, there are a bunch of freshwater springs in Central Florida that are nice for swimming, etc. The manatees, which winter in the warmer waters of the springs, should be there through March.
