Aug. 28, 2018: A’s Case for Staring; Standings

A’s Case for Drawing Stares….

8/27/18: When the Astros rallied for 5 runs in the bottom of the 3rd to overcome a 4-0 early A’s lead, the crowd roared. And Orbit was overwhelmed with delight. He stared.

8/27/18: When Alex Bregman extended the Astros’ 5-4 lead in the bottom of the 8th with a 2-outs, 3-run homer to right center, the roar of the crowd almost unhinged the roof. Bregman & Co. stared.

8/27/18: And super Astros Fan General Sam Quintero did what only General Sam knows best among all of us Astros Civilian Fan Army. ………. ~ He stared.

8/27/18: Then, when Tyler (The Great White Shark) White finished the 8th with another 3-run homer bomb to left, the Astros broke into an 11-4 final victory grin along with that thing they’ve come to do so well. ~ With Altuve conducting like a Toscanini, they stared again ~ big time.

Then Norma and Bill McCurdy decided to add something that largely has been missing from “the stare”, so far, but simply had to fly this time. ~ They also smiled! ~ Thanks, Astros, for a wonderful evening!
