Here's a handy guide to tonight's Houston sports schedule (all times CDT):
1:05 p.m. - Astros vs. Nationals on FSN
Thursday day game, folks. Brian Moehler takes on Washington's J.D. Martin as the 'Stros go for the sweep.
8:00 p.m. - Celtics @ Lakers on ABC
I've never rooted for Kobe Bryant. He has destroyed the Rockets on far too many occasions for me to have any reason to support him. While I'll never call myself a Celtics fan, here's hoping Paul Pierce or Rajon Rondo or whoever is in charge can lead the rest of the green to a second consecutive Finals victory over Los Angeles.
TV Movie of the Night
7:00 p.m. - "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" on TNT
Not a fan of basketball? Fine - tune in to see Awnold try his best to master the most general requirements of the Spanish language. He also may or may not shoot down a hundred cops from an office building using a grenade launcher. Who knows.
