It’s that time of year, when hope springs eternal. The birds are chirping, flowers blooming and pollen blowing. Opening Day. There’s no other day like it. You can feel the hope in the air, feel it in the lines and taste it in the beer. Opening Day. Where traditions begin and continue. Where friends gather with a common goal. Where the team gets introduced.
There is nothing else like Opening Day and an OrangeWhoopass Opening Day is the best. It is great to sit around like minded people (for the most part) who have an idea of what the team is really like. I must admit though, I do not believe anyone really knows how this team will be this season. But, for once in quite a while, there are many with more positive feelings towards this Astros team than in seasons past.
Monday’s game was hopefully a great indicator of how the season will progress. Dallas Keuchel ((KYE-kuhl) pitched a great game against a formidable opponent in Corey Kluber . Dallas, Keuchel that is, received more support than Corey and the Rangers combined.
Both teams had 3 hits each, the Astros were able to use them to their advantage by scoring runs in the 6th and 8th innings. The Astros also stranded two baserunners, while the Indians stranded 5. There was not a lot of movement on the bases by either team which makes a game go by fast and I think keeps a fan interested in it. Overall it was a good night for the Astros and what we all hope is a good sign for the future.
OWA members make some really cute kids, that are well-behaved at baseball games (thanks for letting me entertain them!). OWA members are a lot of fun when they get together and the more that gather the better the party. I used Uber for transportation yesterday and I cannot promote it enough. I was dropped off at the Flying Saucer and when I left at the end of the night I walked out the door and there was my ride. Seriously, best thing I did!
