    Love my hometown team! Go Astros!!!
    A couple days ago I rode my bicycle about a mile over to the Astros/Nationals Spring Training facility and it's really nice here in West Palm Beach. Seems like it has a capacity of around 8k. They had some area all stars tried to play but it was called due to rain which seemed like it only rained over the park. I will revisit when the Sox come here from Fort Myers next year. Oh and congrats on making to the WS, that city has been through too much hardship along several other cities and counties around the country.

    you're all welcome to get on the bandwagon!

    ought to be a pretty easy call who to root for in the WS - the scrappy Stros, representing a ravaged community or the evil, arrogant west coast team with the highest payroll in baseball.

    A little bit of Detroit in the mix if Houston could just share a bit in the name of Verlander.

    I wonder if Marlins Man will become Astros Man now?  I mean, he has to wear bright orange, right?  I'd honestly prefer that because the Astros are cool and the Marlins are a dickhead organization.

    that's cuz they're overpaying massively for longoria, cueto, samardzija, pence and melancon.

    Fire-Brewed!  I always wondered how that process worked.  This was a common beer seen throughout my childhood, usually in the pull tab cans instead of the ponies.
