HOUSTON – As Houston Astros fans wake to a Thursday without a World Series win, they are turning to social media to express the many feelings of love and loss for the hometown team.
Here are some of the heartbreaking, sweet and disappointed posts KPRC 2 found Thursday that speak to the heartrending end of the Astros' postseason:
I’d like to thank every single @Astros fan on here for all your interaction throughout this incredible season. It didn’t end how we wanted it to, this one will always hurt, but we’ll work out how to come back. Win, lose or tie, Astros till we die. #Astros— Astros Fans UK (@AstrosFansUK) October 31, 2019
We love our #Astros to the very end.— Texas Democrats (@texasdemocrats) October 31, 2019
Congrats to the Nationals and @DCDemocrats. We couldn’t be more happy to publicly support DC statehood and get y’all some good Texas beer in Milwaukee. https://t.co/IduqpGJAKz
I’ve been sitting here collecting my thoughts after the loss. All that keeps replaying in my head is how blessed we are as a fan base. What we’ve had the last few years and the players we’ve been blessed to watch. So many future hall of famers. Stay positive. #Astros— 🅳🅾🆆🆂🆈 (@DowsyAstros) October 31, 2019
Frustrations aside, thank you to the #Astros for a fantastic season. They'll raise just the third pennant in franchise history next April, and that Altuve walkoff to clinch it was one of the most epic moments in Houston baseball history.— Ben DuBose (@BenDuBose) October 31, 2019
Brutal night, but a great team.
Ultimately sports isn’t that important and everything will be ok, but I would appreciate it if nobody spoke to me for 37 years after this game #astros— John Guttman (@j_guttman) October 31, 2019
I heard that the best way to get over the love of your life when they leave you which for me right now is the #Astros ; is to listen to George Straights greatest hits. And drink some cold ones.— Astros win it all, U get it all! (@FatLizard93) October 31, 2019
