Yeah, I know the experts give them about a 0.00% chance of beating the otherworldly great LA Dodgers, but Sshhh! Don't tell that to this young Houston team. They don't realize they have NO CHANCE. smile

Good to see them win. This could be a nice boost in spirit around the Houston area. Where they could use some good news and happenings.

And the best part is that they defeated the Evil Empire to get there. Bye-bye Yankees. Good luck Astros, we'll be pulling for you in the series.

I'm happy about it, now I don't have to sit through watching the World Series, my wife would have been glued to the set. When it comes to baseball and hockey, I'd rather watch paint dry.

As much as I hate to admit it, they look good for a long time.

They said that about the Mets and look what happened.

An aunt has a tee shirt which reads, "I root for the CUBS and whoever is playing the Yankees".

Old National League guys who "never set foot in dirty Yankee Stadium" were my baseball mentors.

I get it.

What a great ALCS, hope the WS is just as entertaining. Maybe someday my Pirates will get back there.

I'm glad the Astros won, because I like the team and the city, but I don't find this Yankees team to be nearly as obnoxious as the older iterations. The Dodgers seem more like the old Yankees, just trying to buy a championship. If the Stros can keep their bats alive, they have a shot. I really thought they were done after game 5.

Maybe someday the Nationals will get there, but I doubt it.

Sounds like the same chances the Blue Jays had back in 1992 against the Atlanta Braves.

That's why they play the actual games. I'd love for Houston to win.
