Astros game of the past: Nolan Ryan or Mike Scott

Deciding which memorable Astros game to live tweet Wednesday evening, February 18, 2015.

Last offseason we had an impromptu event where we live tweeted an Astros game of the past. We've decided to do it again this year. Thursday evening we will be live tweeting one of two games that will be decided by the dear readers of this site. Voting will last up until 6:05 p.m. CT Thursday evening, February 19, 2015. Join us at 7:05 p.m. CT on Twitter, that same day, as we live tweet the game that gets the most votes.

Option 1 - Nolan Ryan's 5th No-Hitters - September 26, 1981

Option 2 - Mike Scott's No-Hitter Clinches Division - September 25, 1986

I will be using the DVD from the Astros 50th Anniversary Collection. If you have that DVD, feel free to start it at 7:05 p.m. CT and follow along with us. Hopefully this will help Astros fans get through the remaining couple of days of non-baseball activity. Pitchers and catchers report for duty Friday.
