Wow, what a year we just experienced. The Astros were supposed to win the World Series and DID The boys beat the TIgers in 4 straight to shake an 11 year run of world futility.
Series MVP Jose Altuve had quite the season and then , out of the blue and orange, retired from the game to become the President of Venezuela. If that wasn't enough, the UH Coogs went unbeaten, Greg Ward won the Heisman, and Tom Herman has agreed to stay at the school and will NOT ACCEPT A SALARY. He will donate his pay to the student assn. which got hosed on the TDECU construction. The man who bought the school and is also in the mix to buy the STATE OF TEXAS, Tilman FERTITA, has removed all tuition charges. RICE won 6 games and took home the ALAMO BOWL Trophy. They didn't play in that bowl, but somehow got the trophy.
The TEXANS paid through YOUR NOSE for a QB, BUT found another right under Bill's nose. THE GUY IS A SAVAGE. We aren't sure which team they will draw in the playoffs, but Houston is a heavy favorite. The Rockets get a new coach and suddenly have been so much fun to watch fans are getting to their seats at TOYOTA CENTER by the 2nd qtr, instead of the 3rd. UH basketball has won back to back games against UT-VERNON and are easily favored to be a FINAL FOUR CONTENDER.
Houston, of course, has the Super Bowl and we wish SIMONE BILES good luck as she sings the national anthem while doing cart wheels. Marta Karoyli will play the trumpet. Only the DYNAMO were a question. By trading WILL BRUIN they now have no one we recognize except for TV STARS, Glenn Davis and Eddie "yellow card" Robinson. We can only hope 2017 comes close to what we have experienced.
