    2005 - “Happy to be there, don’t really care about the outcome” (but you really still do)
    2017 - “Still recovering from hurricane, big underdogs, so whatever happens happens… then Marwin hits one out and everything changes”
    2019 - “We’re the best team ever, dynasty, even if they lose the first two games at home… then Strasburgh/Scherzer happens”
    2021 - “We’ve seen everything, done everything… anything can happen, nothing will surprise me… but this is still a damn good team that should win.”

    I'm extremely excited to get this dub.

    This is the OFFICIAL good luck thread. We keep getting through and winning because the fake threads get deleted and the official ones shine through.

    GO STROS

    I'm excited as hell but at the same time very nervous. I know a lot of people are downplaying the braves a bit, but they worry the hell out of me because they remind me so much of the Nats in 2019. That was traumatic.

    This every single damn time. I'm feeling a series win though to vanquish the demons from 2019 and it starts tonight with a game 1 victory.

    I live and die with every pitch in any Astros’ playoff game. Doesn’t matter the opponent. Playoff baseball is nerve wracking.

    I'm fairly certain it was meant to be 2005. But my memory is poor, so maybe we did get to the WS in 2015 ;)

    Mandela effect. In some realities, we didn't blow it against KC and won/lost the WS.

    Who else in here put money down on the Astros to win the World Series at 20 to 1 before the season started? Everyone letting it ride or did someone get scared and hedge?

    Yes, typo of course, too late to edit by the time I saw it. Was hoping nobody noticed, thanks for mentioning it!

    My sense of humor might be cracking up under the stress. May need to start pre-gaming a bit early today
