Astros Lose NLCS

Losing game 7 hurts more than any other game I can remember in recent years.

It hurts more than getting dumped or getting fired.

That damn Pujols double, then Rolen's heart-ripping HR was witnessed from the backroom at the Wood. I lost my temper for about 5 minutes, cursing loudly like a madman at the world and everything in it...

Then I took a deep breath and in a manner a zen master would approve of... I let it go.

Thank you Astros for the ride... it's been an amazing year and you exceeded all expectations. I'll love you always.
