My World

Be sure to visit My World to see more of our world or to participate yourself.

I think I've mentioned before that we are baseball lovers.

I'm going to take you back to the end of September
and the last game of the season (for us) with the Astros.

It was a beautiful day and the roof was open!

We are huge college baseball fans
and get a real charge seeing *our* boys play in the major leagues.
Here's Lance Berkman (first baseman for the Astros)
with Paul Janish (short stop for the Cincinnati Reds).
Both of them played for Rice U Owls.
Lance was the college baseball player of the year.
Paul was on the 2003 team that won the college world series.
I wonder what they were talking about? !!!!!

It was Friday night and the last fireworks of the season.

Have a wonderful week!

Great photos Snap!! Reminds me of our trip to California last year where we watched the Padres, the Dodgers and the Giants. Matter of fact, the Astros played the Dodgers!!

Beautiful fireworks photos! Baseball I know nothing about - but I would appreciate the fine sunny day that means the roof is open!

I like your world and the story you tell

Oh Berkman is still playing! I haven't been following baseball lately. Years ago I was mad with baseball, I think that was the time when the 'stros had the killer Bs. How did your team do this season?

Barb said...

Snap - You really did a fantastic job on the fireworks! I'm wondering if you're still having nice fall weather there?

All the best

These are great. That's where the sport is real, I think. And rewarding.

Love the fireworks so vivid.

I love your baseball shots, Snap. I'm sorry the season is almost over. I am a baseball fanatic. Got my heart broken (not the first time!) by the Red Sox yesterday, (and the Patriots!) a sad day but you know the old saying....there's always next year!

Great job on the fireworks - a noisy end to a (relatively) quiet game.

Hi Snap, I loved going to games there when I lived there. So exciting. I remember when they opened that stadium...

I am sorry that the Astros had such a bad year. Hopefully, next year will be better.

They were talking 'bout YOU! Ha ha ha. okay, maybe not, but wasn't it fun to think that for a minute???

Okay thanks for visiting my bloggy blog.
((Hugs))! :)

Hi Snap, I love college sports too, cause we can track down which team they go PRO. Your fireworks shots are great! Is that train loaded with peanuts?

Hugs! And have a great week!

Margo said...

that would be fun to be somewhere where you can go see MLB. My husband is a wild maniac Phillies fan, and is pretty excited - but he's kind of filled up the DVR. Hope you have a great week too!

Wow, can I hire you to come take shots on New Years of the fireworks? Or maybe just hang out! Such a fun and lovely soul you are (loved the samurai kitty postcards and your post on truth too)
Have a lovely day/week!
PS 73 days til Christmas? Eek!!
