Best seat in the house
Can you imagine the Astros Parade watch party they had in heaven? We're sure KHOU 11 Sports Director Bob Allen, who passed away last year, was in the middle of it all. And longtime Astros announcer Milo Hamilton was doing the play-by-play. And former stars like Joe Niekro, Darryl Kile, Ken Caminiti and Jose Lima were cheering for the champions.
Cheers, tears as Astros pass through downtown
Many of the Astros fans who turned out for the World Series Parade have watched the team for decades. Everyone cheered -- and some cried happy tears -- as they finally watched a dream come true. KHOU 11 Meteorologist Chita Craft was cheering so loud she nearly lost her voice.

Crowd goes crazy when Astros pass by
It was the moment hundreds of thousands of fans had waited hours for: The World Series Champion Houston Astros were the highlight of the parade as they passed by on three HFD fire trucks. Astros Hall of Famers Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell joined other former 'Stros on the third truck.
It was great to see Astros Hall of Famers Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio join the team on fire trucks for the World Series Championship Parade. They were also in Los Angeles when the Astros crushed the Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7.
Biggio told MLB.com he got a little teary after watching the team win it all.
"You're old, you cry now," Biggio said. "It's what you're supposed to do."
Bagwell and Biggio, two of the most popular Astros of all time, played on seven playoff teams but only made it to one World Series where they were swept by the White Sox in 2005.

Astros head to the parade
We spotted the World Champion Houston Astros leaving Minute Maid to head over to the parade. MVP George Springer was carrying the World Series Championship trophy and Josh Reddick was sporting a giant orange foam cowboy hat.
The Altuve Polka
Before the parade started, Astros fans were dancing in the streets Friday to the tune of the "Altuve Polka" by a band called Polish Pete and the Polka? Hardly Know Her Band.

Earlybirds get the prime spots
Diehard Astros fans determined to get the best seats for the World Series Championship Parade headed downtown at 1 a.m. Friday morning.
The City of Houston said Thursday it's expecting at least 700,000 fans to turn out. But the crowds grew so quickly Friday morning, they were forced to extend the parade route to St. Joseph's.
