How the Houston Astros are the embodiment of the Bayou City

The Astros win was for the city of Houston after so many people lost so much during Harvey.

If Houston wouldn't let a hurricane beat it, you think the New York Yankees stood a chance?

Poor Yankees. They weren't beaten by 25 baseball players. They lost to an entire city picking itself up off the canvas. They lost to a tidal wave of emotion, an unstoppable force that would not be denied. They lost to fans who pulled out of their driveways, past all their possessions reduced to debris on their front lawns, and headed to Minute Maid Park to cheer their Astros.

This team doesn't just wear a patch that says "HoustonStrong." They ARE the embodiment of Houston, the most diverse, resilient, boldest city in the U.S. Nowhere will you find a team that looks more like its hometown.
