A streak finally dies….

So the curse is dead. The Astros won.

Now, this isn’t like the curse of the Chicago Cubs or of the Red Sox…those are much longer and have much more history behind them.

The Astros, for the first time in franchise history, won a post-season playoff series. For many, this may not be a big deal,but for our fair city – it gives us something to cheer about. For the past few years, we’ve come to not expect much from our sports teams. Not since the glory days of the Rockets with Olajawon and Drexler, have we been so involved in the chase for a championship. Mainly because we’ve never gotten as close.

I’d go on and on…but I don’t want to jinx it. I couldn’t even watch the game last night except for a few seconds at a time, fearing that by my watching it, I’d curse our good luck. Call it superstition. Call it stupidity. Call it both.

Congrats to our Astros and bring on St. Louis!!

    I had the opposite reaction. It was getting past my bedtime, but I couldn’t go to sleep because I didn’t trust the Astros. Even though they had like a 9 run lead I didn’t go to sleep. I thought I might jinx them by going to sleep and assuming they would win. Happy outcomes all around. Go Astros!

    This notice has gone out to all Special Operations Group soldiers. That includes Delta, Seals, Green Berets, Marine Recon, Special Air Recon, and Army Rangers. Please get Mr. Lucky “The Rocket” to apologize to this fallen Green Berets mom. His arrogant action has made the Astros fodder under “The Curse of The Habelman”
