Chip’s blog is a refuge for true Houston Astros’ fans. If we were a separate species, we would have to be protected under the Endangered Species Act. Anyone who is the least objective has to stare at us and wonder – why do they still care after almost a decade of terrible fan abuse and more than half a century of non-championship baseball.
So, I’m game and I hope you all are also to state why you even check in on this outpost of alternating hope and despair.
Assuming you are still an Astros fan…..Why?
Why do you still care after all these years of failure (if winning championships is consider success)?
Why do you hang on despite 3+ years of deliberate suckiness (probably not a word – but I’m going for emotional truth and words I can use in a family blog)?
Why don’t you go off and be a band wagon fan – take up bowling and learn to crochet and rent all 6 seasons of Breaking Bad over the summer?
And why don’t you wait for them to be respectable again and then show back up with your rainbow colored uniform or Bagwell T-shirt?
And if you are not an Astros fan or no longer one – why do you care enough to show up here and read and comment?
I will share my “why” – later on – but right now it’s your turn to step up and lay out your reasons for why…..
