Please Heed: The Astros made a controversial acquisition today as you all know. Let us be respectful of each others’ opinions. Remember we are all Astros fans and share a special bond. Let us not let politics drive a wedge into our friendship. It would be best if we keep politics out of the discussion tonight, but if that is not possible let us remain civil and polite. Let us all remember that whatever we think we know, there is just a chance that each of us may be wrong, and that that the other guy, might, just might, know something I don’t. Please avoid profanity and name calling.
