An Astros fan all of his adult life, Brett Downer of the ORANGE AND BLUE BLOG is a feature writer, editor and public relations consultant based in the Houston area. He is the former editor of the Lake Charles (La.) American Press, former football correspondent for The Advocate of Baton Rouge and a frequent public-address announcer for football, basketball, charity events and whatever sports his kids have played over the years. When his wife was pregnant with their first child, he took her to the Astrodome for Mother’s Day; she remains married to him nevertheless. As a youth, Brett batted .231 as a second baseman and scorekeeper for the Little League Red Sox. Write to him at brett@outsourcedmediagroup.com, the public relations firm he owns.

Disclaimer: Brett’s views are his own. References to other material are not endorsements. Further, Brett attends sports and news events as a working journalist with a press pass, not as a “blogger” — the ORANGE AND BLUE BLOG is a hobby, not a way to score free access.
