    That's the great thing about this year, IMO. I got my ring. Anything beyond that is a bonus. I'll still be very into the games and I'll still scream and shout...but I won't live and die with the results as much this year as I did last year.

    For the last out last year, I actually went out to my truck so that I could hear it called by our radio guys. That was so enjoyable.

    The nerves are building. There is nothing more stressful than playoff baseball. Im not ready.

    The Texans sacrificed Deshaun last year. The Rockets sacrificed Chris Paul this year.

    Astros are going back to back.

    Not I... I’m crazy nervous. This team has everything it needs to repeat and should be better than last years team. We just haven’t seen the bats produce consistently so it worries me.

    It was great winning last year no doubt, but the pressure is on in my house.

    I never sat down during any of last years run. I damn near created a worn path on my flooring. I expect the same thing to happen this year.

    There's no way I could have gone to a game last year and actually been in a seat around people. I was a nervous pacing wreck of a fool.

    This year I'm there.

    In Game 5 last year in the world series.

    I think a solid 35,000 people(I am taking in that some casuals probably went) realized they had some form of Bi Polar disorder with all the back in forth.

    Only thing comparable to me is every pitch is like every minute in a World Cup soccer game. Low scoring and every second tension filled in a way that hoops and football just aren’t.
    I’d imagine hockey is similar bc it’s such a low scoring game too.

    I believe the winner of this series will win the world series.

    That was the good thing about having SRO tickets to game 5. I was in the bar area in CF during the last 4 innings. That allowed me (and many other around me) to run around like freaks when things went well for us.

    That's a great comparison, may be why I love WC soccer so much. NBA does have some of that in the 4Q of a tight playoff game when they're not too busy calling timeouts and showing commercials.

    I'll be watching game 1 on my tablet in my office. Astros had it rather easy in games 1 and 2 of the ALDS last year. Expecting lower scoring games this year but then again, "baseball".

    Football isn't that high scoring of a game. They just count by 7s and 3s.

    You have to watch. There is a real possibility you will never see a better team in your lifetime.

    I’d love to say that anything is gravy after the first championship. But there’s no way I feel like that once this gets going.

    Not overlooking the Indians, but I expect Astros to win this series. Then will play the Oakland Athletics in the ALCS. Whoever wins that one goes to the WS against "whoever" NL team and they will win the series. That's my plan anyway.

    being at game 5 absolutely took a few yrs off my life... that thing was an emotional rollercoaster the likes of which i've never experienced. but man was it worth it!

    i had to turn down 4 free tickets to Friday's game bc i'll be en route to dallas for the Red River Shootout.... talk about painful.

    Indians scare me more than any other team in the playoffs, AL or NL... their starting pitching outclasses ours and they have some legit bats in their lineup that are having monster years. only area we have a definite edge is the bullpen.
