HOUSTON -- KHOU 11 News found a few guys early Friday who really really love the Houston Astros.

They say they started camping out for the 2 p.m. parade at 1 a.m.

The guys tell us they got a few drinks at a bar and decided they'd just start camping out now.

A big crowd is expected on the route in downtown. The city is planning for about 700,000 people. While the route is long, the key to getting a good seat is to get there early - be loud and be proud!
