DisAstros

If anyone has any ideas of a team I can support that isn’t named the Rangers please let me know. I have given up on the Astros, which is a surprise cause I think to myself why was I even supporting the Astros from the beginning?

No, I’m not a fairweather fan as much as I would like to I would love to have no emotional connection with this team but I do. This has always been my team from the Killer B’s to the no name Astros I have always been an Astros fan. I mean when I need to stop thinking about things I recite the 1997 team in my head: Shane Reynolds, Tim Bogar, Pat Listach, Derek Bell and so on…

I just can’t do it anymore, I look at this team and I expect them to lose. You know it’s bad when the Pirates are better than you.

Like I’ve told Janelle before, I don’t like praying about sports because there are so many bigger things in life but Lord if you are reading this please help the Astros. I don’t want you to help them win but help them to please not completely suck! I mean baseball is a religion so please help them.

I can’t quit you, Astros but I’m trying.

God Bless (the Astros) and Sic Em Bears

Goodbye Andy Pettitte

Since Andy Pettitte is the NL Pitcher of the Month in our banner I figured it only made sense to pay respect to him on the day that ESPN is saying he will retire.

To me Pettitte will always be remembered as an integral member in bringing the Astros to their only World Series in 2005. Pettitte, Roger Clemens and Roy Oswalt were the big 3 before Halladay, Oswalt and Cole Hammels and because of that he will always have a place in my heart. To everyone else Pettitte is the most winningest pitcher ever during the playoffs; he has won 19 playoff games and it seems that every win was a big one, one the Yankees or Astros needed to gain momentum or close a series. He’s No. 55 in total wins (240) and No. 12 in total wins by a left-hander. He is a 3x All-Star, the 2001 ALCS MVP, and a 5x World Series Champion, the number that matters the most.

To Clemens, he hopes Pettitte misremembers but hey, who knows?

Thank you Andy Pettitte for being a winner!

God Bless and Sic Em Bears
