Texas Governor Jinxes Astros
As the late, great Yogi Berra said: "It ain't over 'til it's over". Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is getting a lesson on that very Yogi-ism.
At 3:02 central time after the Astros completed a half inning that saw back to back home runs from Carlos Correa (his 2nd of the game, too) and Colby Rasmus the Astros were on top 6-2 heading into the eighth inning.
That's when Abbott took to twitter.
Thanks to the power of screenshots and retweets we were able to find that because it was deleted sometime during the Royals 40-minute long eighth inning where they took the lead back en route to a 9-6 win to force a decisive game 5 back in Kansas City.
Astros fans looking for a scapegoat, you have an easy one right there.
