Well, I for one, am to young to remember the last time the professional baseball team in Houston was not called the Astros. So I don't have much experience with a team being renamed. So by default, I'm against it. I mean I know it's just a name but it's the only name I have ever know to cheer for. And if it does happen it will sadden me deeply. Not deep enough that I'll change my baseball team, but it will hurt.
On the other hand, we are making some big changes and what is one more? I mean this would leave the Astros in the National league forever and start fresh in the American. So I can see the debate forming and both sides have valid points. I know I stand on the side that wishes for the Astros to always remain the Astros, but I know Crane won't call me and ask me for my opinion. But I'll ask you guys. Do you want a new name? And if so, what should that name be? Should we get away from the space theme as the Texans did?
