As a young teen I was a huge Astros fan from around 1991-1993. this was the Bagwell, Biggio, Camineti, Gonzales era with Art Howe.
I then left baseball all together in 1994, and only re-started watching this season. I’m pretty giddy for the city and all fans who’ve followed them since that 90s era (and earlier). Long time coming and from what I saw the roster is replete with amazing people - Altuve, Bregman, Springer and Verlander all seem like really good dudes.
It’s enough to get over my soreness over McLane not signing a pact with Bud Adams to build a new stadium.
Props to the Astros and all their fans.
