OK, now picture the same process, but for every little thing leading up to something even vaguely resembling a unified government. If anything, we seem to be moving in the opposite direction, as evidenced by Brexit and the shit ton of active separatist movements around the world. Catalonia has been inching away from Spain and hoping it doesn’t notice, Iraqi Kurdistan is trying to pry the “Iraqi” part out of its name, “Calexit” is a word people are somehow saying out loud today, etc..
We worked on average 28 days out of the month. It’s tough being on the road every single day. But it was a good experience. Knew I didn have much to give other than to gut it out as long as I could. A dramatic Series marked by blown leads and late rallies, when Houston twice outlasted the Dodgers in extra innings, McCullers did enough.Forever known for their space age Astrodome, outlandish rainbow jerseys and a handful of heartbreaking playoff losses for stars like Nolan Ryan, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio, these Astros will be remembered as champions, finally, in their 56th season.The club that wears a star on its hat also filled out the Texas trophy case.
