Batteries, booze, and tits.... oh my! This is just Jets fan being Jets fan. How could the rest of us feel good about ourselves if we didn't have these clowns? I say the guy who gets the most women to exposed themselves gets free batteries for the rest of the season. Slime on Jets fan.

Frankly, I think that it's annoying to sit at home watching a game, and you can't even hear the commentators because of all the noise from the fans. Not to say they shouldn't cheer, etc., but it's obvious that they are trying to rattle the opposing team...is this the only way that the Astros can win? Bravesfan, I thought the whole deal with home field advantage, in any sport, has to do with the fans being as loud as they can to support their team. It sounds like to me that it happens everywhere but Atlanta. I like the fact that you can't hear at Minute Maid Park. It shows that a city is all about rooting for the home team. I wouldn't watch the game tonight if you don't want to hear tons of screaming fans, because this could be the loudest game in history. And to answer your question, The Astros are 7 - 5 in the postseason and 3 out of 7 wins come on the road. With all that said, we still have to have better relief pitching to win so we'll see what happens! Let's go 'Stros!

I've never seen a team with so much "MO", look so defeated after only two innings. After Oswalt fanned Pujols, he wasn't going to be touched. The next three batters looked scared to death. Good Job, Oswalt! Congrats Astros!

I guess you have to hand it to those "scrappy" ESPN broadcasters for never blowing anything out of proportion.

And BTW, every major city is dirty for the most part! New York, Boston, Chicago, LA, and even St. Louis has it's dirty secrets, I'm sure. Houston is no exception! I thinks it's funny how playoff baseball brings out this kinda hatred, especially if you've never been outside the city limits of your little home town. So, let's sit back, pop a top, and enjoy the ride.

I think that this rivalry could be great for baseball. I think that everytime these teams meet it will be a great game to watch. But, it will only be that great if it doesn't turn into a red sox/yankees thing where people actually fight, stab, throw batteries, hurl insults, and make utter jack asses of themselves over something they really have nothing to do with. Now, I've been a baseball fan for about 25 years and I just don't want this series tainted by idiotic insults by people who never played, or haven't watched until they're team does something good. The cards are still down in the series 3-2, and they're facing Roy Oswald, and if necessary, Roger Clemens. They are great at home in big games so I think it is going to a great game or games.

It doesn't matter where your from or what team you follow, a true sports fan enjoyed this game. 18 innings, everybody played, and a game winning home-run. It's what playoff baseball is all about. Being an Astros fan for years, I have to say that it feels good to be on the winning side of the drama for a change. We can enjoy this for a day, but it's back to business in preparing for the Cards. Should be fun!

I know it's a different day and age, but I think I'd be alittle embarrassed if I got my ass kicked by a kicker. (especially if I was a "bouncer" at bar.) I guess it's time to bring in Patrick Swayze. I think I'll take this guy on my fantasy team! Just to intimidate the other kickers.

Wow! Another male sufing porn on the internet. Hope there's still enough room for me. Football players are human, and not gods, who knew!

Ok, Ok, everybody needs to lighten up. Everybody to my place for Daquaris. We'll call the, "T.O., PLEASE go to the bahamas" party. Be sure to wear your Hawaian shirt. PS T.O., you're not invited.

Does a screaming line drive to the cranium count as a collision? I don't know what's worse, Head-on-collision or pitcher catching a line drive to the dome. Those two get my vote! Either way, I have to say, I'm glad it wasn't me. Yikes! Even an Astros fan couldn't wish that on Beltran. "Taveras for el Presidente'"

verfatma, I appreciate your concern for my education, but I took economics in college. Besides, English Lit is where I had problems. And your point is noted. Now, about Oakland affording T.O. and Moss. They had Brown and Rice, I just don't remember, or don't care enough to research, what they were paid. I just think that would be a perfect place for a perfect loud mouth.

Never underestimate Oakland! They would probably throw a party for him. Personaly, I could see that happening.

lil brown bat, I applaud your knowledge of the veterans that make league minimum to stay in the game. I also know of players, both great and small, who have taken pay cuts to remain on "their" team. These players keep me watching sports, not the "look at me, I'm bigger than life" players. Just one man's opinion. Can we be friends? :)

Ok, my mistake verfatma! You may be right, it may not be a proven "fact" that pro atheletes are over paid, but just the "fact" that they make more than the military personnel, police officers and others that defend the freedom under which they are allowed to play pro sports, makes me a little irritated. They should just play the game, entertain the fans, and keep their mouths shut.

Since when did this site become a place to attack the opinions of other people? Remember these three facts about professional sports: 1. ALL pro atheletes are over paid to play a game. 2. Superfans are usally broke from spending all their money on wigs and face paint. 3. Does it really make a difference to your lifestyle, if your team is 16-0 or 0-16. Everybody needs to lighten up. PS I really do love football, despite the crybabies who play.

IS IT ME OR DOES RICKY LOOK LIKE EARL CAMPBELL WITH THE BEARD? I'D LIKE TO SEE ANOTHER EARL IN THIS "LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINIARY EGOS". NOBODY COULD COME CLOSE HIS ABILITY OR CLASS BUT ONE CAN HOPE.

I DON'T CARE WHAT ANBODY SAYS, I'LL TAKE HIM ON MY FANTASY TEAM. HE SOUNDS PRETTY FOCUSED OF FOOTBALL NOW. IF FOR NOTHING ELSE, I'LL TAKE HIM FOR THE CRAZY HIPPIE BEARD.
