Just as I was starting to really enjoy watching the Houston Astros, we lost to the Cardinals for a slot in the World Series. As we came to 7th inning and all the B's began striking out, I began to feel that same feeling I felt when I realized Gore was losing the 2000 election to Bush, and sadly enough, I woke up this morning feeling as if Kerry just might lose the election to Bush. That same feeling, like a needle through one's heart. It was as if my favorite television show was on the verge of cancellation, but the executives of the channel it ran on decided, in an effort to save the show, to replace the whole cast with a brand new cast that everyone gradually came to recognize as shitty. I'm trying to be optimistic about everything that happened and realize how lucky we are to have made it this for. There's always next year, and now I don't have to feel guilty about rooting for Boston. I never had a doubt that they would make it. I just hope that they'll be able to break the "curse". 87 years without winning a World Series is too damn long.
About Season 2005 with the Astros: All I can say is that I hope #5 (Jeff Bagwell) doesn't retire and that the Yankees (Damn, Yankees! They have more money than any other MLB Team in either league, so they can buy all of the best players. No es justo. Every team should have the same amount of money for expenses(stadium costs, salaries, etc.)) don't buy #15(Carlos Beltran).
