Got on stub hub and bought us 6 tickets to the Stros @ Pitt game, 2nd row, isle seats, directly behind the dugout.
It was free tshirt night,,,right when we got to our seats, all decked out in our astros gear, the Pit Pirate mascot was standing on top of the dugout. I threw my tshirt at him joking around. 5 minutes later he came back with revenge,,,covered my bro, my sis, and me with silly string!!!!!! He kept comin back and doin it threw out the game as well.
We were loud and made our presence known to all the pitt fans,,,,being a baseball game, they were all a standup crowd, not one of em said one bad thing to us. Just more interested to learn about us and Texas.
3rd inning, one of the Astros coming into the dugout threw me a ball, my sister was pissed!!! They all knew we were there and damn near the only fans they can see. My ole lady noticed one of em kept checkin out my sister and pointed it out to our attention. My sis kept bugging him all game for a ball or his hat or something. She's about the most die hard astros fan there is. She can take anyone of us in this thread to school about baseball knowledge. She even pointed out that the guy who just ejected Astros coach Brad Mills last night was the one and only Jim Joyce. She goes hey,,thats that guy that blew Galarraga's PERFECT GAME!!!
So, finally, the beginning of the 7th inning, the guy came out and threw her a baseball, she was ecstatic. While she was busy yelling i looked down and noticed a phone number on the ball. I quickly pointed it out to her.
After the game we all hopped up on the dugout and took a picture. Pit security guard started spazin out saying get off my field, then quickly threw us out of the game....LMAO,,we were like Dude,,,the game is over. They walked up to the top, me and my Mom hung around another 10 minutes terrorizing the guy, yelling douchebag and all kinds of other things at em.
On our way out, the Astros security guard ran up to my sister. Said hey, they wanted me to tell y'all that they're going to the casino here in about and to text him. Right before that my sis texted the dude and said thanks for the ball.
We were going to the casino anyways, 3 rivers casino. They guy kept blown up her phone trying to get her to go hang out with him at the bar back at the hotel.lol. around 1230 we were about ready to leave when my sister noticed the head astros trainer, nate lucero. He came up to us started to talk with us and shoot the garbage. We walked over to the bar with him and he bought us beers. Several of the coaching staff were there but they said the players had curfew. We all went over to the black jack table to play but we were ready to go. it was like 2 or so. My brother walks up, completely waisted and hasn't met nate yet. Nate asked us where we were from as my bro was walking up, My bro, Josh, looked at him and said,,,,i don't give a darn where you're from, (leaning on the guys shoulder playin with his collar), but you need to fix your friggin collar, that garbage is ridiculous.LMAO...Then josh walked away..his girlfriend convinced his drunk behind to go back to the hotel.
My Sister goes on telling them that were all going to the astros vs rangers game next weekend, started saying y'all look for us,,,I'll have my rangers gear on..hahahaha..He was like oh,,its like that,,,i bet you became a rangers fan 3 years ago and stopped caring as much for us after 2005. Then when we finally decided to leave, she told him to tell carlos lee that when she sees him, she's gonna slap the garbage out of him. He was like for what?? well the whole game, Carlos coming off the field would throw the ball to Pirate Fans...It pissed her off, cause he wouldn't even acknowledge us, Only Astros fans. Nate looked at her laughing,,,said he couldn't look over at you cause his wife was sitiing right there front row. He goes believe me,,,he seen you,,,the whole damn team seen you...
We all walked out and he wanted to give us tickets for tonight but my sister said she had to work so wouldn't take em. He gave us his card and said just let em know.
Sorry to ramble on,,,just an interesting night
