I would steal your car for a chance to meet a penguin and go in a penguin habitat. You, the person reading this right now. I would steal your car. I would steal your car and set it on fire. That's how important this is.
Houston Astros players Jose Altuve and Alex Presley, as well as former Astros pitcher Brandon Backe, got that chance.

Astros meet a penguin. Stupid, lucky Astros. They even got to go inside a penguin habitat. Except, wait ...

Oh, come on. Why would you blow that chance? Why would you give up this opportunity?
@brianmctaggart I think I see him behind one of the penguins.— Jorge Soler (@NotJorgeSoler) January 23, 2015
Dammit, this is no time for ... wait ... no, I'm pretty sure he really isn't behind one of the penguins, so this is no time for jokes. Why would you bail on that chance, Jose?
Altuve chose to watch from outside. It's smells in there pic.twitter.com/zhvZEa2Dkd— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) January 23, 2015
Oh. Yeah, that makes sense. Penguins are pretty nasty. Still, come on. Sometimes you just gotta live, Jose. Sometimes you just gotta live.
