Astros Crawfish Boil: July 12, 2023

Welcome to today’s Boil!

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the Wednesday Boil!

Here we are, slap in the middle of sports fan no man’s land. Not only is there no MLB baseball today or tomorrow, there’s no NBA, NHL, NFL, or NASCAR either. Think you can turn to the minor leagues for your fix? Think again. They’re all on break as well. I guess for now, check out Baseball Doesn’t Exist on YouTube. Also, check out this video about a guy who walked from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh if you haven’t seen it before, from our very own Secret Base. Don’t worry, it isn’t a Rick Roll.
