Pick the Real Houston Astros!Posted: August 1, 2012
Last night, while perusing all that the internet has to offer, I happened across the box score from the Houston Astros – Milwaukee Brewers game. The first thing that jumped out at me was not that the Astros lost 10-1 (that was expected), but that a person named Chuckie Fick pitched 3 innings of relief for Houston. I have never heard of this person (presumably male) before, and I realized that there were probably many members of the Houston Astros who were unknown to me. So without further ramblings, I present a game of Pick the Real Houston Astros!**Did you know that every single time I have typed Astros so far in this post I first typed Astors and then had to go back and correct it?
Presented here, are 10 names who may or may not be members of the current Houston Astros*. Your job is to pick which ones are actual players, and which ones I made up.*I just typed Astors again, I kid you not.
- Charles Rodriguez
- Chuckie Fick (you should get this one right)
- Dallas Kreuchel
- Javier Hemorrhoids
- Tucker Carlson
- Wesley Wright
- Steve Pearce
- Scott Moore
- James Kentucky
- Burt Bacharach
Correct answers below:2,3,6,7,8 are all real members of the Houston Astros baseball team. Javier Hemorrhoids is unfortunately not real, but that would be hilarious if he were.
