Ought To Be the Houston Sports Motto

Great Houston Sports Expectations for 2018

1) May the Hum of Astros Championships Keep on Building!

2) May the Fire of Tilman Fertitta’s Rockets Finally Recharge “Clutch City”!

3) May the Texans Stop Playing Like an Ad for the Texas Medical Center!

4) May the Dynamo Keep Playing Until Someone Finally Scores a GOOOOOOOOOAL!

5) May the Cougars Play Well Enough to Escape Mediocrity, But Not So Well as to Lose Their Coach!

6) May the TSU Tigers start playing like they’ve all heard of their Great Alumnus Michael Strahan!

7) May the Rice Owls start playing football as though they really were Smart Enough to figure out how a school like Stanford produces gifted intellects who also possess the physical ability to compete for athletic championships.

8) May HBU and St. Thomas University find road maps into ESPN that at least place the world on notice that each local school is attempting to compete in collegiate sports on some kind of show-up basis.

9) May the fans of major league hockey pick up the tab on any new ice-making or Zamboni equipment that may be needed for the benefit of any new hockey team that gets brought to Houston any time soon.

10) May Houston continue to dominate in the rodeo world of four-legged participant competitions.

11) Good Luck to Jose Altuve on Repeating as 2018 Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year. If not, may Carlos Correa of the Astros, J.J. Watt of the Texans, or James Harden of the Rockets step up their games to the challenge, along with any other qualified eligible local athletes who may be ready to help keep this coveted award in the Bayou City.

12) Good Luck to Ed Oliver of the Houston Cougars to prove once again that he is the NCAA’s best defensive player – and arguably the best overall NCAA player in college football. The original Coach Heisman, for whom this award is named, lived in awareness that defense was also important to winning in football.

    Billy how about some kudos to the UH basketball team. They are a top tier program. They have some size in the front court-rebound-play good defense and most important they have a deep bench

    From DON MATLOSZ …. Don’s comment did not process through the WordPress “system” so we are quoting him here:
