World Serious H-Town


After all these years and heartbreaks!

1980, 1986, 1998, 2004, 2005 and 2015.

For those who are no longer with us and never gave up hope.

For those who were there during the three straight 100 plus loss years.

For those who have always believed. For those who have always supported.

Hey, Texas! You have a World Serious championship!

And we did it by playing 3 homies at the Trop. (Glad we got a World Serious title before Arlington and my nephew Dave said the best trade of the year was the Darvish trade to the Dodgers.)

We did it after a killer storm put it on us a couple of months ago.

I totally agree with the General’s tweet:

As I tweeted during the Hurricane Harvey coverage and now after the World Series, I’ve never been prouder to work for the Houston Chronicle.

The Chron has been outstanding for sure.

I don’t know what else to say other than to say we have a bit of a well-deserved swagger this morning and that’s OK.

We’re champions and that’s cool. H-Town needed this. It was way overdue.

And last night I got to hang with one of my best friends, State Rep. Carol Alvarado, a super ‘Stros fan who went out to LA for Game 6 and flew back to join us here for Game 7.

Former State Rep. Rick Noriega was also with us and providing commentary throughout the game.

My good friend H-Town Hispanic Chamber CEO Laura Murillo who has been a lifelong ‘Stros fan was with us last night and throughout this last month and of all of us the most undeterred and steady when things got dicey during our historic playoff run.

SpringerDinger, Tuves, Correa, Keuchel, Verlander, Bregman, A.J., and all the rest, congrats and thank you very much!
