Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Yesterday while filming segments for KIAH's "Newsfix" in the monument park at Minute Maid Park, my camera crew and I came across this sign, defaced for your pleasure. It looked as if the sign had been modified for some time, as there were no pieces of the departed "M" near the scene of the hilariously juvenile crime.

Could Minute Laid Park allude to the 'Stros' losing season, where it seems just over the course of a minute we can get screwed, or is incoming owner Jim Crane already working on ballpark brothels, before the sale is even approved by MLB officials? If so, poking fun at the endurance of the men, or women, in the stadium isn't the way to go. We wouldn't mind seeing Junction Jack dressed as a pimp, though...

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.
