Crowd Sourced Positive Spin Astros Headline Database

Scott Halleran

Imagine you're Brian T. Smith or Brian McTaggart, or some other poor fool named Brian and your job is to write about the Astros every day. You've got to tell it like it is, but you don't want to alienate your readers with relentless bad news. What do you do?

It's like the old song: you've got to Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.

But can you imagine how hard that is in the face of loss after loss, sweep after sweep? Even the most creative writer will have a hard time seeing the upside after a while.

That's why I created the Crowd Sourced Positive Spin Astros Headline Database (CSPSAHD). Together, we can help the Brians—or whoever else might have the difficult job of covering the Astros every day—find something good to say on those days when their creativity is stretched beyond the limit.

I've seeded the CSPSAHD with the entries below, but I'm sure Crawfish Boxes nation can keep this going, so the Brians are never at a loss for something good to say. Have at it.
