05 National League Champions!!!!!!!

Congrats to the Houston Astros for winning last night's game! I sat down to watch... the excitement was high... then I fell asleep. It was 2-0 in the 4th inning I guess... I woke up in the 9th... got to watch the last two outs and realized we did it! First time ever in the World Series! Woooohooooo! So I hopped in the car and ran up to Academy to get a few shirts... Apparently, everybody else had the same idea... I pulled into the parking lot and saw the line... OMG... the line! It was HUGE!!! I got to park way down on the other end of the parking lot and hopped in it... and then watched it snake up and down the rows behind me... thousands of people lined up for T-shirts in the middle of the night... excited as Hell... it was crazy! We did the wave in line... everybody stuck in traffic was honking and cheering... the crowd in line was screaming... Trucks would drive by on the freeway blasting their horns causing the crowd to go wild... It was great! After only around an hour and a half I finally made it to the door... They were limiting people to two items only... I grabbed two Championship T-shirts and headed on.... watched the couple of thousand people still in line act crazy, and finally made it home around 12:30 or so.... Way to go Astros! Can't wait to see what the celebration is like when we win it all!
