Ten Gifts for the Houston Sports Fan They Are Bound to Love
10. The Punch by John Feinstein
This is a riveting account of the night in Los Angeles Kermit Washington, with one shot to the cheek of Rudy Tomjanovich, destroyed the career of two players and changed the way the game was played. Feinstein is an outstanding and prolific writer and this is a must-read for any Rockets fan.
If you are old enough to have gone through the first championship season by the Rockets, this will be like a walk down memory lane. If you missed it, you can see it for the first time, including all seven NBA Finals games in their entirety.
Let's be honest. The coolest jerseys in Houston are sported by our MLS team. Whether you like soccer or not, owning one of those bright orange jerseys is still a must-have in Houston.
The closest thing we have to the most exciting in-person sport is the Houston Aeros. It's not the NHL, but it's damn close and the fans know how to rock the house.
Nothing says class like some cool old photos, particularly if they are of the Eighth Wonder of the World. My guess is you might find some great ones in the Houston Area Digital Archive as well. You can even buy them from the public library.
