At some point today, Major League Baseball will announce the two premier awards in its cavalcade of postseason honors — the most valuable players of the American League and National League.
Sylvester Stallone became a famous, wealthy man for being known as one of the world’s greatest boxers as an actor. The character Rocky Balboa always fought his way back to the top after a multitude of negative life circumstances.
It’s a sweet, sweet sound when Carole King sings “It’s too late, baby.” For those who remain Houston Texans fans (count me among the faithful), those lyrics describe the 2017 season; and, if you are a Tom Turkey, well then the words are just plumb tragic.
Heading into Sunday’s road game against a very good L.A. Rams team, even the most diehard Houston Texans fan had to know in their heart of hearts that a win was not in the cards.

Pretty much everyone had to expect that what was left of the injury-decimated Houston Texans would be bad now that star quarterback Deshaun Watson became the latest team standout to suffer a season-ending injury. But that was really bad.
When Astros manager A.J. Hinch took to the postgame podium and declared Houston as a “championship city” after the team’s 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 of the World Series, it was surreal.

After the game got broken open offensively, at no point did this game feel over, up until the final swing in the bottom of the 10th inning. And even then, I think there was a slight bit of disbelief that the nearly 5-and-a-half-hour game was over.
There’s a reason why yesterday’s World Series column called the Houston Astros’ ability to hide their bullpen a brilliant maneuver. Because when that group was asked in Game 4’s 6-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers to preserve a slim lead, they did what they’ve constantly done in this postsea…
League City's Brice Farine won the boys 14-and-under singles title at the Bay Area Racquet Club's ninth annual Fall Festival Adult & Junior Open tennis tournament in Clear Lake City.

Even more stunning than blowing a 4-0 lead late in Game 4 (and the managerial quick hook to remove starting pitcher Lance McCullers that led to the meltdown) of the ALCS and even more stunning than letting Game 3 get away from them, was the Houston Astros’ frustrating inability to click on o…
