A Short Trip Through Houston...

So the wife and I left Thursday for a short weekend trip to Houston. We had the memorial service for my friend Alex Saturday afternoon. It was a great send off to a friend that will be missed by many. It was amazing to see the massive number of people who gathered at his mother's house to honor him... ok, before I get any more dust in my eyes.......

While I was in Houston, I delivered the group break loot for my buddy Matt over at DocHoloday... he's a big Red Sox fan and was geeked to get his hands on the cards from his first ever group break. We also sat down and put a bit of a trade together revolving around sending some Red Sox cards his way that have sat in my "for trade" binder for a bit. I added some non-Astros, so it turned into a "refresh the trade bait" kind of trade, which I'm always ok with... especially when I can tease Spankee with two of these...
The Choice was more of a prospect gamble, hoping he turns out. The Zimmerman's were a calculated move in an ongoing trade discussion with Spankee revolving around any and all Hollywood relics and Astros pulled from his A Piece of History binge. Haha...

Hope everyone had a great weekend, outside of the 15 hours spent driving back and forth, it was a great weekend and a chance to catch up with old friends, see some family and pay tribute to a great friend.

Have a great week everyone...

  2. Glad you got to go to the service for your friend. Judging from the comments on your original post, he was a cool guy who touched a lot of lives.
