It's not the edgiest sports coverage we can offer up, sure, but dangit, this is just cute.
If you were at Minute Maid Park last night, you know that the Astros lost to the Cincinnati Reds. But the real winners were the first 30,000 fans, who nabbed gift certificates for a free Chick-fil-A sammich.
The free grub was part of the new Chick-fil-A "Fowl Poles," which now hang off both yellow left-field and right-field poles. The poles feature those badass Chick-fil-A cows, whose message is "Eat Mor Fowl." (We're not sure, but we think they misspelled "Eat.")
Anytime one of the 'Stros dings the poles, fans win chicken sandwiches. Anytime an opposing player hits them, well, we'll just hold our breath. After Aubrey Huff and Preston Wilson, this is the best acquisition the Astros have made so far this season. — Steven Devadanam
