Happy Happy Astros

I am in tears folks:

The Cardinals lost Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, 5-1, to the Astros on Wednesday, falling two wins short of their second consecutive NL pennant. The game was the last that will ever be played at Busch Stadium. The old ballpark will be replaced by a new one with the same name for next season.

It was an anticlimactic defeat, with Houston taking an early lead and St. Louis never mounting a serious threat against Roy Oswalt or the Astros bullpen. Mark Mulder lasted only 4 2/3 innings, and though he wasn't knocked around, he didn't have his best game, either.

All Cubs fan rejoice in the good news. The Astros may be a divisional opponent but 40 year rivalry v. 100 rivalry. Thats right way to go Astros!! I'm happy for you, you all have earned it, especially those who have been with the organization for many years.
