    ...........is the first pre-season game!!!!!!!!

    Finally, the wait is almost over. We get to see them knock heads and watch the rooks try and make the team. This has been a LONG offseason.

    Thorn, you need to get your ass to a game. I have a ticket for you if you want it.

    Oops :lol:

    In any case, you're right, the message is the same. In a week and a half, our guys on on the field in their uniforms playing football on TV. The long drought is finally over.

    I actually had the vision of Thorn at the Stadium on Friday in the stands all by himself (with the beer that they didn't confiscate at the gate) waiting for the game to start...

    YES!!!!!

    I hate this time of year. It causes me to watch the first preseason
    game no less than 10 times in the first week.

    Am I the only one?

    I end up putting it on before I go to bed some nights and watch 30 minutes or so. I am right there with you!

    Your fanhood is seriously in question.

    Ugh.

    Love/hate relationship.

    Yay preseason, until you realize the games that matter are still one more month away.

    LOL! I get this mental pic of him dropping his tailgate and sitting in the empty parking lot and after a couple of swigs of beer he says "aaaw kiss my ass" and leaves.

    This offseason HAS seemed longer than most. Thanks Astros.
