was watching kvue (austin) and they talked about the merchandise out there that is fake, misspellings to declaring the Astros world champs instead of  World Series champs.  I know this group is way to savvy  to buy a tshirt on sale somewhere on HWY 6, but I was amazed at the number of people who had. Almost as amazed at the amount of non Stranger coverage they are giving the Astros now they have earned the title.

Does that include the price of the cremation?

It is their most modest priced receptacle. 
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.

I guess I better send my children that link.  Otherwise I may end up in a rusty coffee can.

The QA/QC at the mlb shop is not what I'd like it to be. I ordered the grey WS champs shirt online because I couldn't find it in Austin.  The trophy is misaligned. My Houston Strong shirt also had the same problem. I'll live with it, but I'm irked.
My dilly dilly shirt has not arrived yet so I'm hoping and praying it is not also screwed up.

Had a similar experience.  My gear arrived fine, but the shipping label was hand-written and the box was poorly taped together.  For a site that no doubt does tens of millions of revenue, it was shockingly rinky dink.  It looked like I'd bought something from eBay.

Every time I buy a tractor part off of eBay, it come professionally packaged and labeled.

Probably because MLB had to rush to have Astros shirts printed given that they're were supposed to lose to NYY.

My hat and pennant arrived yesterday.  The hat was fine.  But the pennant is just poorly made and the trophy is hardly visible with the orange background.  Everything just looks better on the website.

So, I just ordered this shirt on Etsy.

Give me the number and the security code on the back, and I'll solve your "available credit" problem.

You're welcome.

I think you'll need the expiration date too.
