Trash Bin Lease

From the humor department.  Watching CNN yesterday, I was reminded about this quote:

“Careful. People in masks cannot be trusted.”

-Fezzik (Andre the Giant from “Princess Bride”)

More humor:

Yesterday, the son-in-law claimed the federal response to the pandemic was a “great success story.”

Meanwhile, over 30 million in the USA have filed unemployment claims.

The son-in-law is nothing but a punk arse grifter.

The H-Town Mayor is proposing a $1.14 monthly lease for our black and green garbage bins.  Annually, that’s about the price of a Saint Arnold at The Yard.  So, for all these years, the black and green bins aren’t mine after all?  They belong to the city?  That doesn’t seem right.

The Astros sent me this yesterday:

Dear Valued Astros Season Ticket Holder,
While we all await the return of Major League Baseball and our Houston Astros to Minute Maid Park, we remain committed to maintaining safe and healthy communities. In support of our state and local officials’ guidelines, we realize this means the return of baseball to Minute Maid Park is unlikely in the month of May. We remain optimistic that baseball will return in 2020 and await future schedule updates from MLB. In the meantime, we are providing fans with an update on impacted games originally scheduled for March, April, and May.   
If your account is paid in full, you will receive an account credit for the value of these specific games. If you choose to use any of the credit for upgrades or additional purchases during the 2020 season, you will receive a 25% discount on those purchase. Any remaining credit from the 2020 season will be applied toward your 2021 season ticket renewal. Additionally, by leaving this credit on your account for the 2021 season, you will guarantee your 2020 pricing for your tickets.
If you prefer a refund for the value of these impacted games instead of the account credit package outlined above, you may request a refund by contacting your Account Manager in writing.

Here is a question.  If they don’t play any games at The Yard this season, what justification would they have for raising ticket prices in 2021?

The Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony scheduled for July has been postponed until 2021.

It is looking more and more like no MLB at The Yard this season.

Today is the last day of April.
