A group of Houston Astros fans were kicked out of Minute Maid Park Tuesday for dressing up as Fidel Castro to heckle Ozzie Guillen, who was in town with his Miami Marlins earlier this week according to yardbarker.com.

The most bizarre religion in the World is Castro worship.
Last year went to an Indians game VS. White Sox @ Progressive Field in Cleveland. Got great seats five rows behind visitors dougout from coworker of my wife.
My friend, Brother and I where well within ear shot of Ozzie and gave him an ear full all night about his general insanity and what he once said about Chavez.
He hit me with his gum! He threw gum at me and hit me. I was not looking and think that it is a badge of honor that the knucklehead actually reacted to me!
And if you returned the favor, you would have been ejected.
That is just hilarious. Class A heckling, cheap beards and all. I’m sure they celebrated with some beers afterwards.
We really laid into him then. It was a great time. He is a true nut case!
God Bless Texas (even Houston).
If for no other reason I would love to have seen Rick bring in his “Pre-Chewed Gum Guy”
Nice sites at the Galleria. :-)
That is one magic loogie.
The real problem for most of the “engaged freepers” is that 70% of America is much like Ozzie - they vote based upon “feelings” or last minute thoughts about a candidate - thoughts made during the last 60 - 90 days. These folks don’t study the politics of our time and they have even less understanding of the slow drift toward socialism created by both parties.
Actually, they weren’t heckling Ozzie (though he richly deserves it), they were cheering for Astros catcher Jason Castro.
They were cheering Jason Castro and likely heckling Ozzie at the same time. Jason doesn’t have a beard so why wear a fake beard to promote the Houston catcher? They could have just as easily claimed they were Brian Wilson fans.
The best thing about Bananas was the Howard Cosell cameo.
I don’t know if you are from the Houston area, but in the last few years a small group of fans have been dressing up for games as:
1.) Vaqueros, complete with little toy horsies and big hats to cheer on Carlos Lee (El Caballo),
2.) Pumas (large felines), complete with head-to-toe furry costumes resembling cougars, to cheer on Lance Berkman (The Big Puma),
3.) Bees, complete with striped backsides and silly antennae, to cheer on Bagewll, Biggio, etc. (The Killer Bees).
The Castro thing seems a natural, although perhaps a little silly given that Jason is fairly unremarkable so far, and fidel is such a monster that it seems in bad taste regardless.
Oh, and the folks were not only wearing obvious, comically fake beards, they had on silly cheap sunglasses, jaunty berets and had big cigars and little Cuban flags in their hands.
The new owner is a lefty that probably agrees with Castro and wanted to have the guns removed from the retro Colt 45 uniforms in order to not promote violence.
I have seen my last Disastro game.
