14 Reasons to Root for the Astros- hilarious little video made by the guys themselves!

Kevin C. Cox

Reason #15 to love the Astros probably would have been that they lead the league in Paternity Leaves. But as for the top 14 reasons, some of their best players – and Orbit the mascot – express it all in the funny video on sportsonearth.com meant to engage fans.

The Astros are regularly near the bottom of the league in attendance. Is Texas just a football state that eats and sleeps Texans, Cowboys, Longhorns, Aggies and Friday night lights? Or do the Astros just have too many years of distance from greatness …call it a Nolan Ryan gap? The Fourteen Reasons to Love the Astros list is weird and wacky, from deep fried bacon to cowboy boot drink glass giveaways, to a mascot with no pants. But it does let a few players brag…and does manage to evoke the presence of Nolan Ryan.

It’s too early to panic…and too soon to say what kind of team they will be on the field. (Let’s hope the 5 homer barrage in 4 innings of a few days back is the real 2014 Astros.) But one of the first steps if they want to make their way up the standings in attendance is to get some enthusiasm going. If they can get it in front of enough fans, this video will help.

Guys....this was kind of hilarious. L.J. killed me with his "what's so great about L.J?" joke. The other guys are funnier than I thought they'd be also. Who knew!? Some of them sound a little stiff but overall I thought it was worth sharing. I also got a chuckle out of the Nolan Ryan line. Who did ya'll think was the funniest?
