Texas Governor Jinxes Astros With Congratulatory Tweet
With the Houston Astros leading the Kansas City Royals 6-2 through seven innings of Game 3 earlier today, Texas Governor Greg Abbott thought it would be the perfect time to send over a congratulatory tweet to the ‘Stros, despite the fact that they were still six outs away from wrapping up their best-of-five series against the reigning American League champs:
Well, Governor Abbott may have pulled the trigger a little too soon, as the Royals scored five runs in the eighth and two more in the ninth to earn the 9-6 victory and force Game 5 back at Kauffman Stadium.
Oh, and the Rangers just dropped Game 4 to the Blue Jays, 8-4, evening that series at 2-2.
Looks like his “all-Texas” ALCS is turning into a “Texas-less” American League Championship Series.
