First, a couple of notes. IF you are attending the game - first, know that I am ridiculously jealous and not nearly professional enough not to say so here. Second, I have information for you that may be of benefit.

We are borrowing this information from Michael Hurley of the AstrosRoof blog. Please make sure to visit his site here for more information about the Home Opener Banner Ceremony tonight, lots of good info there! The Reader’s Digest version is, the game starts at

6:10 PM

tonight, the roof will be open, and it is highly recommended that you be in your seat by 5:30 PM or so so as not to miss out on the festivities.

On to the game thread info!
