As a lifelong Houstonian I know that there are two things most everyone in this city takes serious, BBQ and rain. That’s why I’m not at all surprised that Rockets fans have flooded yelp with 1 star reviews trolling (and trashing) International Smoke, a BBQ restaurant owned by Ayesha Curry, wife to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.

The restaurant hasn’t even opened yet and it’s already being trashed for various reasons, almost none of which have anything to do with the food, and just about everything to do with the fact the people hate Golden State, and KD, and Steph Curry, and Draymond Green, and....

You’ll notice above I said “people” and not HOUSTONIANS. That’s because there are even 1 star troll reviews from people that don’t even live here.

Like this one from a Jazz fan in Nevada:


That’s right, even the hatred between Jazz and Rockets fans takes a back seat to everyone hating the Warriors.

Here are some more hilarious 1 star reviews

This one was very creative:


They didn’t even try to fake it here:

Here’s a Lebron fan with a (very predictable) “Curry Chicken” joke - also NOT a Rockets fan:


They didn’t even try here:


Even Durant got hit:



This guy has a point:


This one was my favorite:


And here is the one that started all of this:

To be fair, it’s not like the restaurant Curry owns in San Francisco is doing much better. At the time of this writing it had 3.5 stars.

And if you’re wondering, if it’s not pricey, yes I’ll probably try the food when it gets here.

When the Astros signed Josh Hader to anchor the back of the bullpen with Ryan Pressly and Bryan Abreu, we thought the club might have the best 'pen in MLB.

But at this early stage in the season, nobody is confusing these guys with Octavio Dotel, Brad Lidge, and Billy Wager.

Heading into the ninth inning on Monday night, the Astros handed the ball to Hader trailing the Braves 2-1. Instead of keeping the game close and giving the Astros' offense one more chance, the Braves teed off on the closer putting the game out of reach and ultimately winning 6-1.

Hader has one save on the season with an ERA over nine. Which has us wondering, do the Astros have a Hader problem?
