Astros go to the World Series
« on: October 19, 2005, 10:43:59 pm »

After following my 'Stros for 25 years, I finally get to see them play in a World Series!  They won tonight 5-1.  No last second heroics out of A. Puljos.  Go Astros!  Beat the White Sox!!!

I was pulling for St. Louis, but congrats. Should be a pretty good series (provided the White Sox don't throw it this time around). St. Louis just seems to have trouble with Houston -- barely got past them last year.

Ah, but what do I know? I'm not a baseball fan. I root for Pittsburgh :)

Can anyone say "better pitching?" Go Stros! Been a long time coming, even more so for those of us who followed the colt 45's

Congrats.  Lifelong, die hard Cardinals fan here.  I am in awe of Oswalt's pitching.  You have a classy team.

Was going to watch the World Series if the Cardinals made it in, but since they didn't, I won't.  It's hockey season anyway.

Hockey, schmockey.  Are they actually playing this year?  ;)

I lived in Houston during the Nolan Ryan and Jose Cruz years.  Went to dozens of games as a kid.  Dickey Thon once hit a fould ball to within a few feet of me, but it was over muh head.

I tell you what, I couldn't believe the HR Puljos hit last monday to send it back to St. Louis.  I don't think I've ever seen a HR hit that darn far!  But I was confident with Oswalt and Clemens pitching, we'd take one of the two in St. Louis!  WOO HOO!

I've been a Cards fan for all my years, but I also root for the Astros.  I had a buddy pitching for them for a couple of years.  If it couldn't be the Cards - I am very happy it is the Astros - now thump the white sox and their midget manager.

Very funny, and yes they are  :D

Nolan Ryan was involved in the best baseball fight I've ever seen against Robin Ventura - Ventura never had a chance.  Ran right into Nolan's headlock where Nolan preceded to beat him like a rented mule - outstanding - way to go, Nolan!
