It’s been a year for comebacks here in Houston, and one for making history. Our city has hosted not one, but two of the biggest sporting events in the country, along with the most catastrophic flooding Houston has ever seen. We didn’t have tickets for the game last night–poor college kids that we are—but, standing around the TV at the bottom of the eighth inning, someone pointed out that history was being made and we were missing it. So we walked down the street to the metro and took it into downtown, donning what little bits of orange and blue we could find. When we arrived, it was already the bottom of the ninth, and there was a low hum in the air, as if the stadium were generating electricity.
