Cool post. And yes, of course an Astros game at the Astrodome counts, silly! And now it would have to be at Reliant Stadium. Sad.
I went to the Astrodome for the first time when I was 7 or 8 and we were here visiting from Shreveport. We saw a game and I thought that dome was so incredibly huge.

If we ever achieve everything on our lists, we might as well dig a hole and crawl in. It's the journey. Of course you know that.

No. 37, for us Texans, should be more like "adopted an accent for an entire lifetime." Even those of us not originally from here.
