Comment of the Day: On Astros' Management Catering to Red Sox Fans

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.

Our John Royal was not pleased with how Astro management kowtowed to the Boston Red Sox fans who took over Minute Maid Park this past weekend, even violating the longtime code of not showing an opponent fan in team gear on the JumboTron (Not to mention playing "Sweet Caroline.") Readers agreed.

Great rant John, Have you ever been "in your faced" by three 11 year-olds? Ever felt 2 feet tall wearing overpriced Astro gear?From the confident comfort and familiarity of my season seats that I have had since day 1, I politely told these punks several times that they would never get on jumbotron wearing their sox jerseys (despite their obnoxious and persistent efforts most of the game). When they finally did get on, it was pandemonium in our predominantly Chowder Head subsection. Much like our team, the owner, the music dude, and the idiot jumbotron manager, I had nothing.
