Join Talking Stros for the Houston Astros Road Opener Game Watch Party
With the Houston Astros season opener on the road approaching soon, many Astros fans are looking to decide where to go and watch that Monday noon game on April 4th at Yankee Stadium. As you have read from Climbing Tal’s Hill and heard the boys from Talking Stros, they are big fans of the orange and blue team from Houston. You obviously know about CTH as you are reading this article, but not too many Astros fans know about Talking Stros yet. The hosts are Eric Huysman (editor at CTH) and Brandon Del Castillo (writer at CTH), we love the Astros so much we started a talk show.
Last December, I got a message from Cris Roth of Texas Sports Review, asking if I would like to start an Astros sports talk show. I jumped at the offer after enjoying joining the CTH podcast, at the time, AstroChat with Andy Pondillo a few times. For those of you who know me, I am really a shy individual, but through Talking Stros, I have been able to share some of my random Astros thoughts with random strangers.
The radio station that we broadcast from is KTXF-db The Reel, which is owned by Mr. Roth as part of the Texas Sports Review network. Right now we have a few shows going on with Talking Stros and Texan Timeout and have many new shows in the future covering the University of Houston, Rockets, and Houston area soccer teams. We broadcast the local Hot Shots soccer home games.

Talking Stros offers a positive point of view of the Astros that may not be evident on local radio shows that talk Astros, but after the Texans and Rockets. The 2015 season has brought some of the talk back to the Astros, but if you want one place to listen to weekly Astros talk, you can always hear it with the guys from Talking Stros. Without a current Podcast, CTH and Talking Stros have joined forces to become the official podcast of CTH. Here are the links to some of the Talking Stros interviews transcribed at CTH.
Brandon and I have clicked since the beginning, as we have interviewed many current and former Astros players as well as local media members. Current players Lance McCullers, Preston Tucker, Tyler White, A.J. Reed, Matt Duffy, and many others. We have been joined by Evan Drellich, Julia Morales, and Brian McTaggart from the media side of the Astros. Astros legends Billy Wagner and Geoff Blum have also joined us on Talking Stros, and we are working on several others.
On April 4th, the Houston Astros will be facing the New York Yankees at noon CST at Yankee Stadium. The projected starters were pretty much decided following the release of the 2016 Astros calendar, and it would be Dallas Keuchel versus Masahiro Tanaka who is struggling this spring. The Beard is doing what he does, and he has not allowed a run in his spring starts.
With that it is a noon game, why take off work just to sit at home and watch the game? Come out to Jackson Street BBQ and join the guys at Talking Stros for their first Astros road opener game watch party. We are working on some sponsors to come out to bring you great drink specials, but we can confirm that Karbach beer will come out to Jackson Street BBQ to offer beer specials on April 4th. Also, besides the drink specials and the great BBQ, we will also have a raffle for a pair of tickets to a Sunday Astros game.
Follow these guys.

Not able to take off to meet Talking Stros, we will also be at Jackson Street BBQ on April 11 before opening day as we broadcast. We will have St. Arnold there with drink specials as well. Come out and meet the guys at Talking Stros, eat some great BBQ, and watch the Astros put the Yankees in their place.
