    I'm telling you, 1-8 it's the best lineup in the league. The Astros are getting deserved attention in the media, for once.

    I can't tell you how sick I am of hearing of the Red Sox here in Boston.

    They suck! Yeah, Pedro, Manny, and Nomar kick butt... but what about the rest of the frickin' team? A first baseman who hit .250 last year. A second pitcher who hasn't thrown a ball in the majors since 99. Wheee! Oh, and Cone... yankee leftovers.

    They suck! The Astros rock... and I'm going to gloat all year long [​IMG].

    Sacrilege my friend, utter sacrilege.

    ------------------
    The next time I have meat and mashed potatoes, I think I'll put a very large blob of potatoes on my plate with just a little piece of meat. And if someone asks me why i didn't get more meat, ill just say, "Oh, you mean this?" and pull out a big piece of meat from inside the blob of potatoes, where ive hidden it. Good magic trick, huh?

    The Red Sox suck this year. One game played and they already blew a masterful Martinez outing because with Nomar hurt and Manny hurt the only above-average hitter the Sox have left is Everett, who's CRAZY. Other than that they've got two pitchers who were good 10 years ago and thats it.

    Oh, And I can't believe were 1/2 game behind Philly for home field advantage, I think the Astros can make it up tomorrow by beating the hapless Brew-crew(who have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs). The Lima start will be HUGE in influencing the the rest of the season, but I know Ausmus can keep him under control.

    Chris Webber at the July 28, 2001 3:00 PM news conference when he announces where he will go:

    "It seemed tough, but with guidance from Steve Francis, I learned my true destiny. That destiny is to play for the Houston Rockets, to bring them back to championship glory. One big man is all they need, and I believe I can fill that void. Thanks to the loyal fans in Sacramento, but Houston, Texas is where I belong."

    You know why? Because they don't happen very often. Andd if you think you are winning because you are breathing through your eyelids, or eating certain foods, or wearing women's underwear, then you are!

    Love that movie.

    The only problem I have with this site is its BBS is of crappy design. I hate that cascading messages crap. You have to click on each individual post in order to read it.

    However, like Clutchcity.net, this site is home to all the most knowledgable Houston sports fans, so really there is no other Astros BBS alternative.

    The guys who run the site are pretty cool, and I really dig all their columns.

    Used to be a fairly active one at Astros.com until MLB took over. A lot of the regulr members there left and formed their own ezboard type BBS, which can be found below.

    http://pub45.ezboard.com/bastrosbaseball

    It isnt as active as Clutchcity (is there any BBS as active as clutchity?) but a lot fo the guys over there are pretty knowledgeable and long time astros fans.
