Astros on Life Support

Tough loss last night. Need a win tonight to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Anybody know if they use the Astrodome for anything like trade shows? I had an aunt & uncle who lived in Houston. He was a big baseball fan and took me to a lot of Astros games. Hell, I'm old enough that I saw a few Colt 45's games. :D

My first MLB game was an Astros game back when I was like 4 yrs old. Nolan Ryan was pitching that night, back when they wore those rainbow colored uni's. I'm not sure about these days, but back then they used to use the stadium for other things like monster truck shows.

Well the Red Sox brought Houston's season to an end last night. Unless the Brewers can pull off a miracle, looks like I will be a Red Sox fan during the World Series.

I hate the Red Sox. My Cardinals lost 2 World Series to them.

I wasn't much of a Red Sox until several years ago while visiting our tracking station at Manchester NH, about 50 miles N of Boston. Our station manager got us a couple of tickets to a game at Fenway. We got there early and took a tour of the historic ball park. What an experience.

While I hate the Red Sox, I would love to attend a game in Fenway, see the Green Monster.

A bucket list of mine is to attend a game at every MLB stadium in the Country.

I have been to an Astros, Cardinals, and Padres games in their home stadiums.

Let's see. I've been to the game at Fenway, sever Giants games at Candlestick, a ton of Rockies games, and a ton of Astros games as a kid. Hell, I even went to a Dodgers game in LA. The tickets were comped. Other wise, no way.
