Astros 'fatheads' now available at team store

Nothing says support like holding your favorite player's head in the stands

(Erica Young)

HOUSTON – Yes, we're all feeling a little down after the Astros dropped game 4 at Minute Maid Park ...but do you know what cheers me up? Seeing the giant heads of my favorite players.

During a recent trip to the team store during this postseason (one of many for me), they added a large selection of "fatheads." And I could not look away.

Justin Verlander, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, George Springer ... I stared at their giant heads for an uncomfortably long time. 

There's even an Orbit "fathead." 

I'm not saying this could be the key to winning game 5 (or am I?) but it definitely couldn't hurt. Imagine how good the Astros will feel when they look up in the stands and see you holding their giant head. If that doesn't say "fan support" then I don't know what does.

During my last visit, the "fatheads" were part of a big display in the Union Station team store. Each head costs $30.
