Comment of the Day: Do What For The Astros, Mate?

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We looked at the Astros' new slogan ("Root. Root. Root") and found nine ways to improve it, such as:

"Hoot. Hoot. Hoot." -- Since fans are always hooting with laughter at Carlos Lee's efforts to play the field or run out a grounder, you might as well take advantage of it with a slogan.

One reader pointed out why the slogan needs no improving at all.

Root Root Root is much more interesting when you use the Aussie slang meaning for Root.
