The baddest team in the 05 National League proved once and for all that it doesn't matter what you did or didn't do in the early season or in 44 seasons past. The fair weather fans who dis the Astros year after year - because they "know" the team will choke - are 10x bigger losers than this club ever was. Houston, we have a pennant!

The Houston Astros are the 2005 National League champions. Good luck in Chicago, y'all. Knock their Sox off!

Opened in 1970, Houston's Galleria is the original, in the sense that it was the first mall in the U.S. to fuse a mall with hotels and office towers, not to mention an ice skating rink bigger than Rockefeller Center. The mixed-use concept has been used in other malls since then, but this was the first, and therefore important in the evolution of malls. Modeled after the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, Italy. Currently about 375 stores and 50 restaurants.
the Galleria (with a small t) owns all others, except the original in Milan.

Due to Hurricane Katrina, a large number of New Orleans musicians could be relocated to Houston. This could be a major movement, similar to the Great Migration of southern blues artists up the Mississippi to Chicago and all points in between, c. 1914-1945. A richer, storied heritage combined with the progressive culture and entertainment dollars Houston offers. This could be big.
Houston and New Orleans have always shared a regional popular music tradition. Blues, rock, zydeco, soul, gospel, R&B. Mix in some Big Easy jazz and Texas conjunto. Hayail yayass!!!

First word heard from the moon. The nation's fourth largest city and home to the Texas Medical Center (the world's largest) and NASA's Johnson Space Center.

Few cities in the world can match H-Town as a source for blues and rap talent. Home of ZZ Top and Beyoncé.

One of the best places to live, work, play, eat, play music, hear music, do art, see art, get sick, get well, work out, hang out, and make a decent living doing whatever your heart says you were put on earth to do.
The U.S. economy can be up or down but there's always money to be made in Houston.

Houston, Texas is located 45 miles north of Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico. And high temperatures in the summer are usually in the mid-90s.

Dallas is 300 miles from the Gulf and hotter, and the people there are a whole lot less friendly.
What was the dude thinking who said Houston was 70 miles from Galveston and 120 degrees in the summer??

"The King of the Delta Blues Singers" Arguably the single most influential musician of the 20th century. Born c. May 8, 1911 in Hazelhurst, Mississippi.

Wrote 29 songs that were recorded in San Antonio, Texas in November 1936 and Dallas, Texas in June 1937. Among them was "Cross Road Blues" which fueled the myth that he sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his guitar and vocal skills.

Robert Johnson is important because he personified the most popular songwriting, vocal and guitar styles of the Mississippi Delta and played the music better than anyone before. He profoundly influenced the mid-century blues artists of Memphis, St. Louis and Chicago, thereby planting the seed that became rock 'n roll.

Died in obscurity c. August 16, 1938 in Greenwood, Mississippi -- one month before John Hammond Sr. located him to play a national tour. He was 27 at the time of his death, preceding Bryan Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and other members of the 27 Club.
Robert Johnson wrote "Sweet Home Chicago," "Love in Vain," "Stop Breakin' Down," "Traveling Riverside Blues" and "Dust My Broom."
