A week ago I wrote a post about the new owner of the Houston Astros, Jim Crane, "suggesting" that he was considering changing the team's name. The name that they had for over forty years. Missed it? Go here:
Well, that made a lot of people in my fair city, really mad. Myself included. So much so, that blogs were written, letters were sent, phone calls were made. I half expected a group to form Occupy Houston Astros -but alas, that did not transpire. Well kids, I'm happy to report that this afternoon, that same owner, issued a statement, to which he said: "We received strong feedback and the consensus among season ticket holders and many fans, and we will not change the name Astros. The Houston Astros are here to stay." -and just like that, all is well with the world again. Although, the more I think about it, the more I believe this was just a publicity stunt to boost ticket sales, attendance, status... I dunno. I don't really care. If it was a gimmick, it was a genius marketing move. Well played sir, well played.
In other news, I seem to have lost my "inner work-out queen" ---Seriously. I just can't make myself go to the gym lately. And it's starting to show. And I hate it. But tomorrow is another day. And so I will go then. I've already had a stern talk with myself. Plus, I brought out the big guns and tried on a bikini. If that's not enough to make me run to the gym, I don't know what is!
Eh, but I'm a betting woman. I got my money on me.
