Divine providence. I actually believe God can work through sports for His glory.

Interesting correlation between Katrina/Saints and Harvey/Astros :idea:

God is pro-sports and likes the Astros. That's good to know! Thanks.

The superior ability of the players and coaches won the game. Their hard work made it happen.

I find it incredibly difficult to believe that anything so occulted, such as divine providence, had anything to do with the outcome.

I should qualify my earlier comment and say that I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't divine providence. But now I'm going to withhold any further comment because I won't be able to spend the time necessary to explain myself with a fuller answer. Suffice it to say that preparation and skill on the part of people does not preclude divine providence. God uses means to accomplish His ends.

Blessings,
Dave

The Houston Astros baseball season offered our family a great year. The last couple of years, we found that the entire family loved watching baseball as a family group. We attended several games last year and this season as well. We watched almost every single game on the television when we were around one and had time. We all run the MLB app on our phones. Baseball, and specifically the Astros, brought my family closer together. Hurricane Harvey and the flood caused us all major disruptions in our lives and routines. Way more than I had realized. The baseball gave us something to focus on beyond the devestation we are still dealing with. I have to admit to saying a little prayer for the Astros and thanks for the chance for my family to have this wonderful experience together.

Clearly MLB is not used to having teams from the South win the World Series. Half the Astros championship gear on mlbshop.com is hoodies, jackets, beanies... haha. I wonder how well all of that is selling in Houston. During the two weeks it gets cold enough here in winter to wear that kind of stuff, it's not even baseball season!
