You'd think Jose Altuve and the Houston Astros would be in-line for a night free of jokes and criticism due to the 2020 NFL Draft dominating the sports landscape, but Rece Davis managed to get in one little jab. After Houston OT Josh Jones went off the board, Davis managed to swipe at the Astros, claiming that in the NFL, Jones won't have anyone "banging a trash can when a blitz is coming."

You probably though you wouldn't get made fun of in a football draft, did you Jose?

The reason Altuve and the Astros were brought up in the NFL Draft was the selection of Jones, who fell a bit before the Arizona Cardinals picked him 72nd overall. Jones, a Houston native who went to college in Houston, has an Astros tattoo on his arm, but jokingly refused to take questions about his ink when he was asked about it at the Senior Bowl and Combine.

Even with baseball on ice, the Astros are still the punchline of everyone's jokes. This isn't going to stop anytime soon, either.
