R-I-P Astros

Dear Astros,
I’m writing your obituary today, much like the Houston Chronicle did that one year, in efforts that maybe you’ll wake the heck up and start living up to the potential and hopes you talk about day after day. I realize all teams have their ups and downs, and without the likes of the “Killer B’s” left (except Lance), it’s a harder road to hoe. Sure, el Caballo can hit (occasionally), Tay-hay (Tejada) has been trying to keep the ‘Stros a-float, and the Wizard finally pitched a decent game. However, the bottom line is you’re not getting it done, boys. Though I’m not one to cheer in just “fair weather”, boys, you’re making your fans grumpy. How can I blog decently when you act this way? I nicknamed you the heart-attack astros [and am sticking with it] a long time ago because you’re notorious for surprising us when all hope is lost. C’mon…have your heart attack and die, then let’s have a rebirth again! It’s a new set of good guys (some b’s – mostly workers), and we still bee-lieve!

Rest In Peace

pride of houston
love to play

you suck eggs this year

balls flying in the stands from
astros’ pitchers one after another
loving houston the other teams do
like a long lost puppy that no one wants anymore.
(and, yes, there’s an acrostic [poem] above…I can’t help myself. Uh-oh, watch out…I may start singing now. LOL!)
It’s a Rockie weekend…1 down (boo!), 2 to go! 😀

  2. I feel your pain, having to watch your baseball team suck… I’m a Phillies fan. I have years of experience watching them blow leads, make errors, get swept, and loseloseLOSE. 🙂

    TPL responds: *nodnodnod* Speaking of the Phillies, I give thanks for Michael Bourn, though Lights-out Lidge going against his former team was painful. LOL Who knows where things may go? We may both find our teams in the playoffs. Then again… ahh, it’s a heck of a game. 😀
