There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Fuck the Rangers right in the fucking ear.  Karma.  And what a way to end the game.

And Will Middlebrooks gestures at Tony Sipp like Sipp broke some unwritten rule about letting runners get untested huge leads late in blowouts.    Must have missed that one.

The Astros sweep guarantees a Rangers losing season.

Unit v Verlander

Both at age 34. Johnson had won 133 games before joining the Astros and 170 after. Verlander with an additional 2 years in the majors had 183 wins prior to joining the Astros and at 4 and counting after.

Whataburger is pushing the Pattie Melt. Wish they would bring back the Green Chile Cheeseburger. Best ever.

Monterrey Melt with fried chicken.  Trust me.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I'm HudsonHawk and I approve this post!
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

My favorite has always been the chop house cheddar burger. I guess I'm alone in that because they haven't had it in a long time.

You misunderstand. He was implying the blowout wins in this series could be directly related to your viewing absence.  Something something about respecting a streak, take one for the team, and, oh yeah, don't forget to breathe through your eyelids.

Ok, there you go. Not to sure how the actions of a random bloke who lives 10, 500 miles away affects the outcome of a game but let me know what I have to do to make us win.  As long as it doesn't involve frito pies, pretty sure they don't exist in Perth.

Never underestimate the power of the BBGs. They must be appeased.

You can make your own frito pie.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Is there no place there in Australia where you can buy canned chili? How about chili powder?

That Big Unit won 170 games after age 34 is mind-blowing to me.

Makes you wonder how a guy could just keep getting better at an age when most humans begin to decline. I guess it's just good genes, diet, and exercise.
