Of course the series goes 7. One more day of being unproductive at work.

Of course it was going to 7. The storyline demands the home team always wins Game 6.

No more middle ground at least. Either Houston exits the real world for a few days in celebration, or yet another generation of Houston kids are introduced to the worst kind of heartbreak sports in this town has to offer.

I have an all day training today and it's going to be death waiting through it anticipating the game

OTOH because of the training getting trashed if they won last night and taking a sick day wasn't an option at all

I...

I didn't think this would happen.

I didn't think this would ever happen to me. I'd never be able to see a championship.

THIS IS THE GREATEST SPORTING MOMENT IN MY LIFE

It's still surreal. It may always be surreal. But...oh man, I think our pessimism may finally go away. This is so loving incredible.

Exact same here. This means way more than the Rockets.

I think this means even more than the Texans winning the Super Bowl.

Holy poo poo I'm so pumped right now. Starting tomorrow, I'm making Astros avatars. Pick a player and it's yours.

I kind of want to make a av with the trophy in it but I'd never turn down a Chirurgeon Springer av

One time when I was very young I went on a cubs scout trip to Houston; we got to go to the Astrodome field and Biggio and Bagwell talked to us. Such a long time waiting then til now.

One thing I loved about Biggio was that he would come outside of the players exit at the dome and sign for literally everyone

So we got Verlander, Altuve, Correa, Gattis and Springer claimed.

I feel like we have to all rock the avatar for at least the 2018 baseball season. God dammit we have WAITED for this we have to wear it as a badge of honor.
