With Manfred talking openly about expansion for the MLB or relocation of teams (Oakland), would you support another league switch for the Astros?

Beer and Queso / Shiner 100
« on: January 25, 2009, 02:07:33 pm »
I can't believe we don't have a thread yet...

Shiner 100 is out. I got it at Central Market in Houston. I've had two and I got to say, meh. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad; It's just not great. I don't think I will buy another 6 pack.

I've been drinking Agave wheat, Fireman's #4 and Hop Wallop. All are really good.

Talk Zone / Now is your chance to Rickroll the Mets all year long...

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and to be honest, just plain funny. The Mets have opened themselves to getting "rickrolled" all year long.

For those of you who do not know what getting "rickrolled" is; ts another childish internet prank where you send a link to a friend saying something along the lines of "hey check out my vacation pictures!!1!" or "Astros trade Roy Oswalt to Red Sox for..." then, instead of having the expected link, you send them a link to the music video of Rick Astleys' "Never going to let you down". I know, its stupid but nonetheless harmless and kind of funny. This whole rickrolled thing got really big on the internet after google and youtube replace all of their links for a short period of time with the music video for an April Fool's prank. But I digress...

Now, The Mets have enacted a poll on their website for fans to choose which song to play during the 8th inning of a game at Shea for the ENTIRE SEASON. That's right. You can vote to force the Mets and all of their fans to listen to "Never going to let you down" during EVERY 8th inning at Shea. If you ever wanted to mess with the Mets and their fans, now is your best shot yet.

I encourage you to listen to the song and watch the video to remind yourself how awful the song is and how funny it will be to have it on durring every 8th inning in Shea.

Talk Zone / Garner in 07?
« on: July 30, 2006, 03:39:05 pm »
With the talk about what the Astros will look like next year, I haven?t seen anyone's opinion on Garner. I would assume that he would be a lock for the 2007 option on his contract but considering the way this season has gone, I don?t think he is a sure thing anymore. I personally can?t imagine the Astros not picking up his option, but we still have a lot of baseball to play and if we make a blockbuster trade and end up playing worse or whatever....

So, what I?m curious to know is what the popes and everyone else on this fine board thing of him as a manager. Does anyone thing he could be gone next season? Any other managers out there you would like to see take control of the team? Anything about Garner?s ?style? that pisses you off?
