It's official. The Houston Astros have been sold and will be moved to the American League in 2013. Excuse me while I throw up a little in my mouth. To say that I am totally bummed out about this new deal, would be an understatement. First, no offense to anyone out there but, I HATE the American League. I've been a National League kind of girl since I went to my first Astros game at the Astrodome, way back when. Why does Texas need two American league teams? The Rangers are doing just fine on their own. Ok so my beloved Astros have seen better days, and yes they totally sucked this year. But still, why the American league? That's not the solution that so many of us in Houston were looking for! There are talks among the masses of boycotting the upcoming season and forgetting about their home team altogether. But I could never do that. I'm not a fair-weathered fan. Is that so wrong? :)
Alright. I just needed to get that off my chest. There is one teeny, tiny, silver lining in all of this, . two words: Derek Jeter.
