2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

At Minute Maid Park...bottom of the 4th, Houston ahead of Toronto 12-2...and the Astros are still batting, with the bases loaded.

Actually, I agree with you; if I'd had my druthers the Expos would have stayed in Montreal, the Astros would have stayed in the National League and the Brewers in the American, there would have been a new, expansion Senators team in Washington DC...and maybe even the "Mexican Nationals" in Mexico City!

It's not a real sport unless it's played on ice and involves either strapping knives to your shoes or throwing 40-pound chunks of granite at each other.

Houston used to have a real hockey team. As a kid, I was a big fan. Unfortunately, they did not survive the end of the WHA. The name was revived for an AHL minor league team in the 1990s, but they ended up relocating just a few years ago.

This is not a good town in which to be a hockey fan. Unfortunately.
