I live in walking distance to an Academy.... I'm really hoping I get to take advantage of that tonight
We watched game 7 at Revelry in 2017. Celebrated there for about 30 or so mins then drove to academy on 59 near Kirby and the line was around the store.

Pretty sure people post up there for the game and just watch on their phones or something.
My co-worker told me that when we won in 2017, she sent her husband to Academy 30 minutes before game 7 was over to go wait in line at Academy. I was trying my hardest to hold back in telling her how terrible of a wife she was.


That's a **** wife. Academy will get more inventory z few days later. It's not like they are gonna stop making WS Champion gear if there is a hungry market for it.
Some people just have to be first.
Ya. The ones that really amaze me are the ones first in line to get ALDS and ALCS gear as soon as we advance. You are going to wear that a couple times in the next week and probably never again.

WTF waste your time and money just to get to say "1st!"


Yeah that's dumb. Wait and see how far we get and buy that one.

Hopefully Kate whispered into JVs ear all night "it's top of the second and you are down 2-0".

So he can mentally just skip the 1st.

I really liked her as an co-worker, until she told me that story.
Not her fault her husband is a pus##.

I'll be in Section 106 tonight. Woke up with my stomach in knots. Feels like Christmas.

Well it looks like Christmas here in Denver, so let's get some presents to unwrap tonight.

Man I had forgotten about that. That would be terrible. My guess is the ump forgot he was in the outfield.

The lines at sporting goods stores on the night of a championship has always been weird to me. Especially when everything is available online or the next day in store.
its mostly the bandwagon people who need to verify their fanhood.

I dont know a single diehard who does this.

I ordered the gray championship shirt in 2017 and it is the lowest quality Astros shirt I have. So if we win I ain't buying that again.

speaking of gear. Hope Dicks is ready to supply me with 6 jerseys, a hoodie, 2 polos, a hat, and a t shirt for a grand total of $120!

Verlander with the no-no tonight. Strikes out 12. Greatest WS single game performance ever.

I'm so dissapointed.... I was able to grab one of the single tickets just now, one of my students needed help. When I came back, my session timed out and I lost it.

Good thing MMP has a closed roof. Sucks for tailgaters though.

I don't understand how yall are getting these. Is it that you click on Add to Cart and it actually adds it? All I get is Invalid Information. Do you leave the page and reload it?

The first time I clicked it, it took me to the cart. That's how I got game 1.

I must have gotten on as soon as they uploaded and been the first to click?

My wife is one of those people, and its weird as hell to me also.

But the items are not available in store the next day, they sell out most everything. So you have to wait 24 hours to buy a shirt.

My kids have already asked if we can drive through the neighborhood honking the horn when the Astros win and then drive down to academy and high five folks and yell. They don't want to stand in line they just want to experience some impromptu community celebration.

Just keep clicking. I clicked a couple hundred times and eventually got a single in 430.

they released 3 singles in the upper two decks about 20 mins ago.... after trying to get them for about 15 mins they were gone
I don't understand where all the singles that pop up throughout the day come from. Do they just hold on to them for that purpose of just randomly releasing one or two at a time for some lucky fans to pick up?


They have some held back to fulfill the "buy 2020 season tickets and you're able to purchase WS tickets" guarantee. Also, I'd assume they have a set number held back for sponsor and MLB obligations. I assume those are slowly being released.
Why would they hold singles though? Whos gonna buy season tickets just to get a single?
May have been a set of three and they sold two?

Man, I'm pretty nervous about today. I am confident in JV, so no issue there.

It's facing Strausburg where I'm nervous. Really hope we can scratch out 2-3 early runs against him. I'd really like to have him out of the game by the 6th or 7th.

Doolittle and Hudson don't really scare me - we've seem them enough times and I think we could do damage.

Bats don't get cold, flare up and then grow cold 2 days later. Ask the Nats - they were hot for 3 weeks. Astros will continue to mash and mash early. Much like game 7 in LA. Put up runs in 1st and 2nd, JV cruises the rest of the way.
Astros 9
Nats 2

I have all of a sudden become super nervous in the last 5 minutes since I've acquired a ticket.

Let's do this.

I wasnt planning on getting any gear less than WS....but I really liked the design this year for the ALCS Champ shirt

I think if he did K 12 he would be the all time leader for K's in a single postseason
