Houston newspaper perfectly captured the city's 24-hour, roller-coaster of sports emotions

  • Between the Houston Astros winning the World Series and the Houston Texans losing quarterback Deshaun Watson to injury, it’s been an emotional week for Houston sports fans.
  • The Houston Chronicle captured this dichotomy of emotion beautifully on its sports cover.

It’s been a week of intense emotions for fans of Houston sports teams.

On Wednesday night, the Houston Astros won their first World Series in franchise history after a dramatic seven game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

However, the celebration was quickly muted. The next day, the Houston Texans lost star rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson to a season-ending knee injury after the best game of his young career

In the span of 24 hours, Houston sports fans likely worked their way through every conceivable emotion a die-hard fan could go through. The Houston Chronicle was quick to put together a sports page that fit all the news in one space and succeeded with flying colours.

Thank goodness the Rockets had a quiet few days.
