Ouch, Right in the Pujols!

The City of Houston had the collective piss taken out of it last night.

The champagne was on ice and the Astros were one strike away from the World Series. Then Albert Pujols sent the NLCS back to St. Louis with a heart-stopping three-run homer. The Astros can still pull it out, but it's going to be a whole lot harder now.

If I were the Astros, I'd head over to Lakewood Church (a.k.a., the former Summit/Compaq Center) and try to soak up whatever "Clutch City" spirit Hakeem and the 1994 Rockets might've left behind. Then I'd ask Joel Osteen for an exorcism.

I keep reminding myself that the Astros do lead the series.

It's not that effective though.
