Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 02, 2017

The Houston Astros won the first World Series in the history of the franchise, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in game 7. The Astros scored 5 runs off starter Yu Darvish, who was pulled in the second inning. The Dodgers only could manage to score one run on a seventh-inning pinch hit single by Andre Ethier. Houston's win makes a 2014 Sports Illustrated prophetic. The magazine called the team "Your 2017 World Series Champs" on the cover.

The drowned town that didn't think it needed building regulations got a well deserved distraction. Something to feel good about. Games three and five were amazing. As good as a sporting event can be.

Building regs are why my house did not flood
Try again, maybe with facts next time.

The only (and I'm not joking) person who could do Seekh Kababs just like the original was GOATMAN.

I've gone walkabout plenty times to look for a nice kabab joint but they all lack taste. Probably the cook is some bloody Indian thinking he can do beef....

Thank goodness for Youtube and an air0fryer, I can now do my own. Thanks for the kind offer though.

I'm more of a koobideh person. Very tasty. Gotta love living in the US's most diverse melting pot.

Hit by four pitches and they call themselves Dodgers!

They should be a very tough team for at least a few years and much longer if they can reload the pitching staff.

Probably the Best Series I've seen in a while. And the Astros definitely did themselves a lot of good when they pulled the trigger on Bergman. He's definitely a game changer.

Who was the poster that blasted the Verlander trade claiming Houston weren't getting the old Verlander but the current version who's getting hammered on weekly basses with a dying fastball. Oh yeah, it was Crisis Stills.

Verlander has been dominant since he came to Houston, Crisis Stills.

That was the best baseball I've ever watched except for the Dodger's last night. That game was hopeless immediately... As a Dodgers fan, at least we lost to a classy team (except that racists s***stain with the awful hair).

HISD has cancelled school tomorrow, to give people a chance to go to the parade.

What a great series. It was everything a WS should be.

He's been the key to the Astros amazing run. I analyzed the trade the day after it was made .... and was totally wrong.
