    Started the day with HIGH hopes for the Astros and Rockets. Ended the day the same way we have for 50+ Years...Broken, Beaten with injury added to insult. Will it ever end?

    It's gut wrenching. But if the pats, redsox and cubbies have shown us anything is that those demons can be exorcised.

    Why the panic after the Astros lose 1 game? They can easily close out the Sox today. Wasn't expecting a sweep.

    Astros are still up 2-1 and need one more game to advance. Why the panic? Smh

    I think they'll win today. But I was kinda expecting the sweep given we were facing Fister and how our offense had performed up to that point. When we got 3 in the first inning, I was feeling pretty good about that.

    Alright so if we don’t sweep every team it’s a problem?

    So we lost to potentially the best team in the NFL and one game at Boston against a good Red Sox lineup... boo fu**in hoo.

    Cleveland has sucked way more efficiently than us until recently with Lebron, I don't see them panicking after losing ONE game against the Yankees.

    Curses don't exists but if they did you know how you break them? Ignore them because it's a mental disease that causes one's own self doubt and it can infect a fanbase, it's local media, and eventually the players who are constantly reminded of it by everyone around them. Ignore it.

    There's no such thing as curses.

    Every team goes through injuries or bad luck.

    You think that Houston is cursed because you only follow Houston sports.

    We weren't contenders anyway. Too many holes. The schaub one may have cost us a super bowl

    I'm not panicking, but Game 3 had HOU written all over it - including a Conseco HR off-the-head type blooper.

    Preach, brother, preach.
    Sh*t happens. Don't lend your energy to that bullsh*t curse/jinx mentality, that's the only reason they exist. Go Stros! Go Texans! Go Rockets!!!

    That's what Rick will tell McNair. It's just bad luck.
