The Astros are the Houston professional ball team, they play home games in the Minute Maid Park stadium. Lori, our daughter, won a drawing at work and got four $175 tickets, free parking and unlimited food bar for the game. Wow. We went with them and had a great time!!! The Astros were behind so the next to last inning people were leaving the game to get a jump on the traffic. Well, they missed the fantastic last inning play that the Astros made and they won the game!!! It was very exciting, a train (in the photo, between some signs and the Citgo sign), lit up and moved to the other side, fireworks shot up, organ music played and the crowd went wild. During lulls, they put things like the bongo drums in front of the TV screens then scan around to find people who pretend to play the drums. It is very entertaining. Then there is the kiss cam - if you are spotlighted on the screen you are to kiss who you are with. So fun!!!

I took this photo with my iPhone. I thought it was amazing that I got a good photo like this. We were on the second tier from the home plate with this fantastic view of the game.
