So why a post concerning the Astros in a Seattle Mariner blog?
I'm a native Houstonian. Although I've lived in the Northwest for the last 11 years (and now call Silverdale home), my roots still extend back to the Houston area. I remember well seeing games at Colt Stadium, and my Dad taking us across the parking lot to the big hole in the ground that would one day be the Astrodome. I remember seeing many games in the Dome. Seeing guys like Willie Mays, Don Drysdale, Juan Marichal, Willie McCovey, "Little Joe" Morgan - well, you get the idea. Anyway, seeing the Astros win the NLCS was awesome. Best wishes for success in the WS.
