Retailer promises free furniture if Astros log less than 100 losses
Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale can’t seem to resist these crazy bets.
The Houston furniture retailer who lost over $7 million rooting for the Denver Broncos in February’s Super Bowl is now taking another big promotional swing, this time at the national pastime.

That means Houston would have to win just 63 games from now until September. Which appears to be a low bar to hurdle, except for the fact that the MLB team has logged more than 100 losses in each of the past three years.
The Gallery Furniture founder doesn’t have the greatest history betting against the underdog either. And wouldn’t you know it, the Astros are 2-0 as of Thursday morning.
