The Astros being in the World Series is great. But there's some pain along with all that exhilaration and street closings are a necessary part of what we'll all have to go through.

Starting today at 3 p.m. certain streets around Minute Maid Park will be closed. This will continue for the second home game on Wednesday. And we'll see what happens after that.

If you're going to the fame, it might be best to jump on board METRO light rail for a free ride. No charge to World Series ticket holders.
