Championship celebrations are a tradition of all of the major sports, and Houston is celebrating, but it’s not for the Rockets.

For the first time in their 56-year history, the Houston Astros can call themselves World Champions. The Astros clinched the 2017 World Series title after beating the LA Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 of the Fall Classic. After their win, the city of Houston erupted in celebration.

Hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the area gathered downtown to watch the Astros’ very first championship parade. The parade was the city’s first championship celebration since the Houston Rockets won back-to-back championships in 1994 and 1995.

The title was also one that was anticipated since 2014. In June of that year Sports Illustrated released an issue with the then Astro rookie George Springer on the cover. The caption: “Your 2017 World Series Champs.”

This prediction rang true three years later when the Astros actually accomplished the feat. The subject of the cover, Springer, was named the World Series MVP, further adding to the amusement.

During his parade speech to fans, the World Series MVP Springer said that the city’s and the team’s achievements are here to stay.

“Houston, we have a championship team, and no one can take that away from us,” said Springer.

After so many years of losing and being the laughingstock of the majors, the Astros are finally on top, and their fans are elated.
