I will never forget the Astros Dodgers National League series in 1986. My family and I sat and watched as our beloved team made their first run at the pennant. It was incredible and all of us cried when it was over. We got that close.
It was 2005, nearly 20 years later before we finally made it to the World Series. Only to get swept by the Whitesox in four. Julie and I were there and happy to experience it.
But this team is different. We are watching something that could be years in the making. The talent, pitching and the chemistry. It is all there. Only the hated team from LA stands in the way and man are they good.
Maybe this will be the year we win it all. For my dad.
Let’s do this!
