Jeff Bagwell was at the game Saturday, and suddenly, our Watch Party became more enticing

It’s always nice to see Jeff Bagwell at the old ballyard on Saturdays, but it was especially nice to see him on this particular Saturday, because it provided the perfect opportunity to do what I do best — follow him around with a Sharpie and hit him up for autographs.

Bags, who provides color analysis with Brownie and J.D. in the television booth every Saturday home game, was nice enough to autograph a few items we’ll be giving away at our Watch Party on Wednesday (July 6) at Lucky’s Pub. So far, the list of items we’re giving away includes a Chris Johnson pink bat bobblehead and four rally towels — two signed by Bud Norris and Mark Melancon and two by Brad Mills and Clint Barmes. All four were signed by Bagwell.

The Watch Party will take place in the back bar area of Lucky’s Pub on St. Emanuel, near Minute Maid Park. We’ll meet at 6-ish, right around the time the Astros and Pirates begin play at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. If you wear Astros gear — hats, shirts, jerseys, etc — you’ll get half-price appetizers. They’re also running several fantastically cheap beer specials:  Fifty-cent Small Domestic Drafts; $2 Smitchers $4.00 24oz Tecate, Dos XX, & Mexican beers / $2.50 Import Cans.
