    Between the Houston Astros winning the World Series and the Houston Texans losing quarterback Deshaun Watson to injury, it’s been an emotional week for Houston sports fans. The Houston Chronicle captured this dichotomy of emotion beautifully on its sports cover.

It’s been a week of intense emotions for fans of Houston sports teams.

On Wednesday night, the Houston Astros won their first World Series in franchise history after a dramatic seven game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

However, the celebration was quickly muted. The next day, the Houston Texans lost star rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson to a season-ending knee injury after the best game of his young career.

In the span of 24 hours, Houston sports fans likely worked their way through every conceivable emotion a die-hard fan could go through. The Houston Chronicle was quick to put together a sports page that fit all the news in one space and succeeded with flying colors.

Thank goodness the Rockets had a quiet few days.
