Sports Talk 790 ignited a Twitter fire this morning, blowing up a trend when they proposed the idea of Carlos Lee Rules for the upcoming season. Some of my favorites so far:â†µ
AstrosCounty @CrawfishBoxes to be shut down because they didn't provide actual crawfish #carlosleerulesâ†µ
AppyAstros All shortstops should come equipped with crumple zones & air bags #carlosleerulesâ†µ
CincoMike #CarlosLeeRules All the chalk lines are made from powdered sugar.â†µ
johnwessling If Carlos Lee gets hit by a pitch, he gets to eat all the candy that falls out. #CarlosLeeRulesâ†µ
Gee_Bananas Take me out to the ball game song lyrics changed to "Buy LEE some peanuts and cracker jacks." #CarlosLeeRulesâ†µ
riversmccown Texans must make sure he's the only player with enough assmass to play nose tackle in the entire city. #CarlosLeeRulesâ†µ
And on and on and on. It's funny because Carlos is a big man and isn't a very good outfielder. My favorite is probably AppyAstros entry. That's exactly why we changed Lee's nickname from El Caballo to El Bufalo on TCB, because Lee is like a water buffalo out there in left field. Once you get his momentum going in one direction, just get out of his way or he will stampede you. Just ask Adam Everett about that.
