Come on Astros, we can do this. We are now 0-7 for 2010, and we are the best team in baseball when it comes to losing. A sick part of us wants you to lose as many games as you can, because then we can use your losing as an excuse to become full-time Rangers fans. Just kidding, but don't tempt us.
You are now a glorified JV softball team, and the whole nation is laughing at us. Rocks Off loves all of you, and we are only doing this because we do in fact have a sweet spot in our hearts for you rag-tag bastards.
Please dear God in Heaven, let us win a game.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
