HOUSTON – As a journalist, I keep my eyes constantly peeled for a good news story. As a hopeless romantic, I'm always looking for a good love story. I went to an Astros game this weekend and found both.
My boyfriend and I went to Biggio's for a quick pre-game bite before the Astros-Rangers game on Saturday. That's where I spotted Calvin and Jeanette Kurtz.
Their jerseys said it all -- they love the Astros, and they love each other.
The back of Calvin's jersey has "Married 19" on it, and the back of Jeanette's jersey says "Since 68," so when they stand side-by-side, their jerseys read, "Married Since 1968."
Calvin and Jeanette are from Flatonia, Texas. They say they drive to Houston to watch the Astros every chance they get.
