The Astros Take Game 4

Yesterday, I was happy for the fans of the Phillies because their excitement reminded me of how excited I was when my team, the Rangers, made it to the World Series.  But, as someone who is cheering for the Astros in the World Series, I was not happy that they got blown out in Game 3.  They lost 0-7 and, last night, it looked like the Phillies might be unstoppable.

Tonight, though, the Astros proved that this World Series is nowhere close to being over.  Even with Jill Biden sitting in the stands and trying to turn the country against them, the Astros shut out the Phillies.  The Astros not only won, 5-0, but tonight’s game was also the first combined no-hitter (and the third no-hitter overall) in baseball post-season history.  Tonight, the Astros looked as strong as the Phillies looked last night.

You can hear the Philadelphia crowd booing in the video but I don’t care.  The Astros made history and this World Series isn’t ending anytime soon.  The World Series is now tied 2-2.  Game 5 is tomorrow night.

Go Astros!

The Phillies Win Game 3

After being canceled due to yesterday’s weather, Game 3 of the World Series was played in Philadelphia tonight.  As I’ve said since the post-season began, I’m a Texan.  I wish the Rangers were in the World Series but they’re not.  The Astros are the Texas team in the World Series and that’s who I’m cheering for.  I wasn’t happy to watch the Astros lose tonight.  I especially wasn’t happy to see them lose by 0 runs to 7.

I’m happy for all the Phillies fans, though.  Whenever I would start to get upset about the score, the broadcast would show the fans reacting in the stands and they were so happy that I couldn’t help but be happy for them.  It reminded me of how excited I was when the Rangers made it to the World Series and how excited I’ll be when they make it their again.

So, congratulations, Phillies!  I’m still cheering for the Astros but the Phillies played a good game and they made their fans happy.

The Phillies Win Game One

Congrats to the Phillies who, last night, won Game One of the 2022 World Series!  By a score of 6-5, the Phillies handed the Astos their first loss of the post-season.  I’m cheering for the Astros but I am also happy that the Phillies’s amazing season will not end with them going 0-4 in the World Series.

The Phillies earned their win.  And now, it’s time to GO ASTROS!

The Atlanta Braves Win the 2021 World Series!

Congratulations to the Atlanta Braves, on winning their fourth World Series championship!

Of course, I was hoping the Astros would win. It’s not that I’m really a supporter of either the Astros or the Braves. I’m a long-suffering Rangers fan. But I was hoping the Astros would pull out a victory in Game 6 because I didn’t want the season to end!

It didn’t happen, though. The Braves won and they won decisively. Congratulations on the victory, Atlanta! You earned it and you deserved it!

As for next season, here’s hoping my Rangers can finally get it together. I’m a baseball fan. I never give up on my team.

Congratulations to the Astros and the Braves!

Congratulations to the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros for finally giving the world what it truly needs this year, an all-Southern World Series!  It’s the Southeast vs. the Deep South as Houston tries to beat Atlanta and win their second World Series title.  Meanwhile, for the Braves, this is their 1st World Series appearance since 1999.

I have to cheer for the Astros because they’re from my homestate but I won’t blame anyone who is cheering for Atlanta!  I think either team could win.  With Game 5 scheduled for October 31st, the Series might even be decided on Halloween!

The Great Pumpkin has been good to us this year!

Congratulations to both teams and good luck next week!

And who knows?  Maybe next year, my Rangers will finally get it together.  Things have to turn around sometime, right?
