Dude Hall of Fame Inductee: Jose Lima
During the late 1990s, Lima-Time was party time for the Astros and the Dudes. As the brash and flamboyant Astros hurler piled up wins and strikeouts, he also won over the Committee. The Dude introduced the exclamation, "It's gonna be Lima Time!" to the rest of the dudes; and soon, all good times became, well, Lima Time!!!
A strike at the lanes?? It's Lima Time!!
A hole in one on the cheese hole?? It's Lima Time!!
Of course, an Astros win in the playoffs?? It's Lima Time!!
And a Rangers win in the playoffs?? Wait, nevermind, that never happened.
Even when Lima Time became longball time when the Astros moved into then-Enron Field, the dudes always remembered the magic of Lima Time during his prime in 98-99.
For bringing laughter and life into the dudes' lives, the Dude Committee proudly honors Jose Lima as an unanimous member of the Dude Committee Hall of Fame.
