I have been a die-hard Astros fan for over 35 years and joined the staff of climbingtalshill.com prior to the 2011 season. I try to catch every inning of every game on TV or in person. I first started blogging at "Astro Blog" at the beginning of the 2010 season. I love baseball and have been known to flash the leather. Unfortunately my swing is more suited for slow-pitch softball. I am also a scratch bowler and certified U.S. Bowling Congress Bronze Level Instructor.
