The Astros Keys To Success Include Figuring Out What To Call A Grocery Store

J.R. Towles gets lampooned in Jon Bois' (of SB Nation) return to The Dugout for With Leather. The premise? The Astros may be the most forgotten team in Major League Baseball. So why not use them to direct a discussion about the state of vernacular of grocery stores today?

_crapped_my_hunterpence: Yeah, I mean, I've heard "I'm going to the supermarket" before, but it seems like something probably said on PBS in the 1980s
FigueroaSpeech: right. sort of how people all used to say "smorgasbord" in the 1980s and now NOBODY says "smorgasbord" for any reason
JRR_Towleskien: I say smorgasbord!
FigueroaSpeech: looooool check out this motherf**k
FigueroaSpeech: "hang on guys, i have to go buy a smorgasbord at the supermarket"
JRR_Towleskien: That isn't how smorgasbords work

The Dugout is one of the greatest creations in internet history, or at least that's how I felt back when I wrote a Top 25 list of them back in...2007? God, I'm old.

If you're rolling for good Astros dugouts though, it has to be this one. Poor Jeff Bagwell.
