The people of Houston have had it tough the last two months. Hurricane Harvey slammed the city hard and residents are still reeling. Close to eighty people died and an estimated seventy billion dollars worth of damage was done. Tonight, the Houston Astros embark on trying to win the World Series for the first time. UFC heavyweight, Derrick Lewis, thinks an Astros series win could help boost morale.
However, Lewis sees the money generated from the big game as being the biggest aid to the city of Houston.
“We need the money. Even by us being in the playoffs this deep… All the bars and sports stores are making all the money right now. Hopefully, they’ll continue doing great things and issue it out back to the city.”
When asked if it would help with the city’s morale, Lewis said,
“For sure, but they need the money. A lot of folks need the money around here.”
So what is Lewis’ prediction for the showdown between the Astros and LA Dodgers? A sweep, of course.
