I am a Rockies fan who lives in the UK, but who is also on a mission to visit all 30 MLB stadia. I have 9 to go and my quest brings me to Houston this Saturday. I am really looking forward to the experience, but it would be great to have some advice from people in the know with regard to:
1. Best place to sit without paying a lot of money - and are the scalpers generally offering better deals than the box office as is always the case in Denver? Also are there parts where I would be surrounded by people who do not seem particularly interested in the game? I know I am not an Astros fan but it would be nice to be amongst some rather than with people who you wonder why they even bothered coming......
2. Best place to eat/drink before and after the game - I am staying centrally and could easily research this but in my experience there is nothing better than getting advice from baseball fans in particular rather than the general public through Yelp, Trip Advisor etc.
If anyone fancies meeting up and telling me a bit more about your team, what the future holds even if the present isn't so great, why the present isn't so great etc then that would be really cool. Thanks for the taking the time to read this and apologies if this isn't really what Fan Posts are for, by all means delete it after Saturday if it isn't the sort of thing you want to see long term in FPs.
