I knew I always liked Houston.
THE Houston Astros are moving on to the 2019 World Series after defeating the New York Yankees thanks to a Jose Altuve walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth.
WOW. Just WOW.
I nearly died of a stroke due to DJ Lemahieu’s game-tying home run in the top of the ninth, but thank God for the midget!
I’m a little bit drunk, but holy shit, WHAT A GAME. I don’t even like the Astros, but thank GOD we don’t have to endure the Yankees in the World Series.
I was ready for Houston to win this game in a clean fashion in the top of the ninth, but aparently DJ Lemahieu had something else to say about that.

But, thanks to Aaron Boone and his piece of shit closer Aroldis Chapman, the Astros had a chance to win the game. George Springer got on with two outs, which set up Jose Altuve to be the hero. And be the hero he did.

Thanks to Houston, we now have a Cole-Scherzer, Verlander-Strasburg, Corbin-Grienke World Series.
FUCK New York, FUCK the Yankees, GOD DAMNIT I LOVE BASEBALL.
