The kid in me who suffered through many really ugly baseball summers at the Astrodome in the 1970s is giving a thumbs-up to the current incarnation of the team, which, surprisingly, has managed to make it into the playoffs this year.
Its also nice that my local minor league team is currently an Astros affiliate, so I got to see several of the rookies who put the Astros back on the map this year a few years ago.
Of course, true to form for a Houston team, they blew a big lead and managed to not win their division, instead sneaking in as the second wild-card team – something that didn’t even exist as recently as four years ago.
Still, the Astros made the playoffs.
On Tuesday at Yankee Stadium they will be the visiting team for the AL Wild Card Game.
It is the AL Wild Card Game, not ‘the AL Wild Card Game presented by [an advertiser]’.
I could say some more, but I’ll just say: Insert Bill Hicks’ thoughts on marketers here.
