The Houston Astros’ victory gave the city of Houston hope and a much needed distraction-and if that’s all pro sports can provide, so be it. That’s good enough.
We all saw the destruction and donated money to help relief efforts. THis was a time to see the best of humanity- and of what sports can offer. That town won’t be truly Healed because of a World Series Title; no one’s dumb enough to believe that.
But, it was perfectly timed victories for a historically bad franchise that gave Houstonians something to celebrate.That’s got to mean something.
That’s all we need sports for, especially nowadays. You know what, though? That’s good enough.
