When I was a kid, my entire school would get excited every time NASA would launch a space shuttle into orbit. It seemed like every other teacher reminded us that we could grow up and become anything we wanted... even an astronaut.
Speaking of athletes... how about last night's game? I was a little late to the party, but what I did manage to see was damn exciting. Had that been Game 7, we probably would be talking about it for decades.
Unfortunately... it's still early and both teams have plenty of reasons to be confident. As an A's and Padres fan, I'd like to see them battle it out and take it to Game 7 with the Astros and Jose Altuve eventually bringing Houston (home of the Johnson Space Center) their first World Series Championship.
Hopefully these three pieces of space shuttle memorabilia will bring a little mojo to them.
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
