Do any of you remember the 1970s 7-Up commercials staring the baritone-voiced Geoffrey Holder (who played Baron Samedi in "Live and Let Die) saying, "Ahhhhh... it's DE-licious!  It's De-lightful.  It's the uncola!  Ha ha ha ha!"

Semantics
Oof. You are correct.  I wish Bregman would've played as well in Omaha as he's played for Houston this World Series.  "Could've" does imply that he didn't play there.

And I’m hoping after tonight you see that difference in even starker relief, with Bregman going home with a WS ring, and no couldas, wouldas or shouldas.

Just one last gasp of 2017 left, and then it’s 4 months of darkness until 2018 spring training.  I’m always sad to see the season end.  

Go Stros!

Well, I’m by no means an Astros fan, but still I enjoyed the heck out of that.

Congrats to the Stros and all their fans!!!

This is kind of like not having a moon at night anymore.  Or seeing for the first time.

The Astros falling short is all I've ever known.

(per Moneyball)  The Astros beat the teams with the top 3 payrolls (combined $712 million) to win the World Series Championship. 


It's dreams come true, it's the high this city needed after the lowest year in recent memory, it's the redemption for the years of being called disAstros or LAstros, it's just all the feels....  what a great day and what a GREAT Series!   Baseball needed this, and Houston needed this.   Today is a happy day, and I am a HAPPY HOUSTON FAN!

couldnt of said it better Erin

todays is a great day

I saved all 4 games the Astros won and will be rewatching them over the coming year
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

This carries the added bonus of coming at the expense of the Dodgers.  I root against all L.A. and NYC teams.  I've never known why.
