Rockin’ The Rainbow: Astros-Yanks Gamer I

Ryan RainbowI have a throwback “rainbow” Astros jersey I bought just to wear around a lifelong Cubs fan friend of mine when we would watch NL games together to give him yet another deserved reason to want to punch me. Remember, the newly-minted Westros were in the Serious less than 10 years ago, but poor ownership and necessary redistricting have made them the patsy in the AL. Once was a time when the ‘Stros had a mystique about them manifested by the most awesome gunslinger in the history of the game.

But those are barroom tales. A -50 run diff at 25 games in portends a rough year for these “Westward Ho” ‘Stros. The rainbow jersey is still frickin’ cool, I don’t care what anyone says. Andy Pettitte faces his former indulgence from back when Mom and Dad were “taking a break.”
