GO Astros!!

Postby Asherons » Thu Oct 26, 2017 12:53 pm

Not a huge sports fan but gotta give a shout out to the stros.

I'm originally from Houston and so naturally any sport teams from Houston are my goto.

This is their 2nd world series appearance, and they got stomped by the white sox last time.

Currently down 2 games of the 7 game series so it may be they get stomped yet again, but i'm hoping they can pull a few wins this time around.

It's tied at 1-1 isn't it? The Astros are nominally my baseball team as my friend and I adopted them as our team when we first visited the US many years ago. I'm not a big baseball fan though, American Football is more my American sport of choice.

Is this the one that's like rounders or the one that's like rugby but with plate armour?

I think its the rounders one. The one that lasts like 48 hours and the managers dress up like the players.

hah yeah its the running around the bases sport. and they can go on forever if its a tie game, think the longest ever game went about 20+ innings and they are supposed to only go 9. ill admit they can be kinda boring to watch but with beer they get better

Baseball is a funny one. I worked in LA for a few months, and it became kinda a thing for us to go and watch the Dodgers play whenever we could. I wasn't really fussed about the sport, but loved the atmosphere of thousands upon thousands of American families out enjoying themselves, the interaction with various things that happened during the game, it had a really nice party atmosphere.

It compared very favourably with the much less pleasant atmosphere at an English football match!

Oh, sure, all it takes is one fan trying to assault a player using his own child as a weapon and you say football fans are animals:
