Continue the dugout celebration and Club Astros

The first time you saw it, you were hooked. The strobe lights, the dancing, the music that ROOT Sports hoped was clean enough to air. The pure joy of a bunch of kids outplaying their expectations. The rekindled love of the game from veterans who had been to more than their fair share of clubhouses. A physical and tangible representation that said, like it or not, the Astros are here to stay.

Club Astros, from one lens, is completely meaningless. It is no news to anyone that a team would celebrate a win in the clubhouse. But for Astros fans, it was something much more. It was re-learning to get behind a slew of new faces. For new fans, it was a glimpse into the longevity of the Biggio and Bagwell era. It was the ease of knowing that after a revolving door of placeholders, our long-term core players had finally arrived.
After days of contract speculation, scrutiny for underperforming, and future-altering trades, we could share a moment with the team without even communicating. Club Astros was a microcosm of the 2015 season. The new-look Astros are unique, different, and having a blast. Here’s to many more trips to Club Astros in 2016.
