Backe can't catch a break

Jeebus. Brandon Backe is seriously breaking my heart. And it's because of this post in the Houston Press by Richard Connelly, in which we find out that Backe's Bullpen has closed - before I had a chance to visit the family and belly up to the bar:

(Linking to the Fan Page on Facebook) This is what I found: Apparently, some woman had an accident last week with a child in her car and she told the police that she had just left Backe's Bullpen ... and the rest is history... Backe's was told to either pay a fine or surrender their liquor license so they closed the bar. I wonder what the building will be next??

Connelly notes this can't be confirmed, though throughout the rest of the post, it sounds reasonable.
