Orbit gave an Astros fan a gigantic teddy bear -- then replaced it with an even bigger, more ridiculous one

Go to an Astros game at Minute Maid Park and you can be assured of one thing: Masterful shenanigans from Orbit.  

And we're not just talking about what pregame silliness he might get up to with members of the opposing team. We already know he's top-tier when it comes to goofing around with rival players

Seriously, that's just huge.

So many questions that may never be answered ...
