2013 Optimism Starts Now!

Was your team terrible in 2012?

Now that the regular season is over, it’s not too soon to start thinking about 2013, and finding even the thinnest of reasons to be optimistic.

Like this guy, plucked from Twitter:

“every 13 years or so!” Wow. 13, 14, what’s the difference? But, really, if the pattern holds, we should be thinking about 2015, not 2013. 13 years, 14 years, x. Everyone who has ever taken an IQ test on the Internet knows that x = 15 years in this case.

    Jack, shouldn’t the optimistic view be that members of the Astros take up something they’re better at?
