    AMEN! This was my plan from the start. Got to work early, leaving at 3, stopping at HEB to pick up some provisions, chili dogs and cold beers for dinner while we watch 2 games. YES!

    Yep, got dinner prepped, my only quandary is how much beer to buy. Been a while since I've watched a proper doubleheader.

    What is the beer of choice for Astros games these days.

    For me...

    But usually been drinking a combo of these instead of beer lately...

    You guys are giving me all kinds of ideas. I have 2 bottles of Shiner Light Blonde and a Crawford Bock or two rolling around the fridge, so whatever backs that up is fair game.

    Karbach is gross.

    Stick with a real Houston brewery...St. Arnold's all day long.

    May have to buy a few and stock up for my next bbq. Too hot for outdoor cookery right now.

    Oh, and if you like kolsch beer, this is my new favorite if you can find it in Houston: https://www.altstadtbeer.com/new-page-4

    Love Street is the only beer of theirs I really like. Had half of one of their Hopadillos, and now I know what to buy the next time I need to strip paint off of something.

    I'll look for the Altstad. Love Street and the Crawford Bock are the only Karbach's I can drink. Prefer Shiner bock over Crawford Bock, but nothing like having the brother-in-law Ranger fan open up the ice chest to see it full of ice cold Crawford Bock.

    Any of you got a good nose for sports betting? The line in game 1 today is -310 and the line in game 2 is similar so I was wondering if anyone was good at the over/under?

    Do you think game 1 goes over or under 10 runs?

    Game 2 over under 9 runs?

    I was thinking the over in game 1 looks good and the under in game 2. Any1 got any thoughts?

    So far this season between the astros and whitesox the under is 3-1.
    Dylan Cease hasnt pitched against us yet though and his ERA is like 6+

    Greinke has solid numbers against the whitesox from the dbacks.

    The way I see it, in game 1 Astros would pretty much need to put up 8-9 runs by themselves to cover the over

    Don’t do it! Go to the gym and watch on the tv above the treadmill! You’ll feel good after!
