The Astros Win the Series!

I know Honeyboy is doing the Forty-Dance (See Sunday, October 22). Let’s all dance and everybody sing along; follow the imaginary bouncing baseball.

The stars at night are big and bright; < clap, clap, clap>

The Astros win the Series!

 

We’ve waited long; but we’re Houston Strong,

The Astros win the Series!

 The Dodgers trailed out on the Coast;

The Astros win the Series!

 The homeruns fly; Off Springer’s bat;

The Astros win the Series!

 We’re the Champs; of all baseball;

The Astros win the Series!

 Reminds us of; the team we love;

The Astros win the Series!

Thursday, October 26, 2017 – Astros, Guy Clark and If We Can Just Get Off of That L A Freeway

Thursday, October 26, 2017 – Astros, Guy Clark and If we can just get off of that L A Freeway

Please answer the following question regarding last night’s World Series game.

What were you doing last night while pulling for the Houston Astros playing the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Two of the World Series?

(a) Biting your nails

(b) Peeing in your pants

(c) Holding your breath

(d) All of the above.

I was so tired I was not able to do the HB Forty Dance to celebrate the victory. What a game! Way to go Astros! Series tied.

The Astros are coming home to Houston for the next two games in the series. I found this by the great Guy Clark to help us get ready.

Got to give it all we can now
I believe everything your saying
Just keep on keep on playing…

We’ve got something to believe in…

If they can just get off of this L A Freeway…

GO ASTROS!

Pack up all your dishes
Make note of all good wishes
Say goodbye to the landlord for me

That sum-bitch has always bored me

Throw out them old LA papers
And that moldy box of vanilla wafers

Adios to all this concrete
Gonna get me some dirt road back street

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway
Without getting killed or caught

Down that road in a cloud of smoke
For some land that I ain’t bought bought bought

Here’s to you old skinny Dennis
Only one I think I will miss
I can hear your Bassman singin   Sweet and low like a gift your bringin’

Play it for me one more time now
Got to give it all we can now
I believe everything your saying
Just keep on keep on playing

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway
Without getting killed or caught
Down that road in a cloud of smoke
For some land that I ain’t bought bought bought

Put the pink slip in the mailbox
Leave the key in the old front door lock

They will find it likely as not
With all the things that we have forgot

Oh Susanna now don’t you cry, babe
Love’s a gift that’s surely handmade
We’ve got something to believe in

Before you know it’s time we’re leavin’

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway

Without getting killed or caught
Down that road in a cloud of smoke
For some land that I ain’t bought bought bought

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway …

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 – Yesterday and Tonight

I apologize for the absence yesterday and no awards. I was up late the previous night studying for two tests. I am pleased to say I made an A- on my blood test. The results of the urine test look good too.

Who is ready for the Game One of the World Series? Houston fans have been waiting for so many years with so many memories.

I see the temperatures are near 100 degrees in Los Angeles. As they say in California, “It’s not the heat; it’s the fires.”

Photo by me. From my sports collection.

Let’s play Houston Astros stream of consciousness I will give you a memory and you can make an Astro memory association. Ready?

  • Colt 45’s
  • Astros
  • Nolan Ryan
  • Astrodome
  • The old Astrodome scoreboard
  • Foamer Domers
  • Killer B’s
  • All Star Game 1968
  • Minute Maid Park
  • Jose Altuve

Go Astros. Batter up @ 7:08.

The Astrodome scoreboard was considered high tech at the time.

Sunday, October 22, 2017 – The Forty Dance or 4 – 0. GO ASTROS!

I know my farther aka Honeyboy is doing the Forty Dance because our Astros are going to the World Series. What was the Forty Dance?

It was a happy dance he did on certain rare occasions. It also made my mother scold him for doing it and me for laughing at him.

It usually came when there was a victory over an archrival or a team he did not like. For example – The New York Yankees or the Los Angeles Dodgers.

It went like this:

Burst into the room, begin dancing and begin singing “Forty dance; forty dance; I’m going to do the forty dance.”

Place your right ankle and on your left knee and sing out “Here’s the four!”

Return foot to floor and sing out “Where the O?”

With great exaggerated motion turn around, bend over, stick out your butt and point to …well, you get it.

The O was yours last night, Yankees. Great series though.

Let’s hope there are some Forty Dances next week. A four to zip sweep and we’ll Forty Dance in downtown Houston in a conga line.
