Welcome to Texas Sports Nation
Welcome to Texas Sports Nation
Andy Dalton was the starting quarterback for the Katy Tigers, Sheryl Swoopes and Tina Thompson still headlined the Comets' roster, the Astros played in their first World Series, the Texans were a dismal 2-14, and the Rockets were led by Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming. Adding a weekly section of local sports coverage on Fridays and a 30-minute television show on KPRC every Sunday night gives us the chance to go more in-depth on the teams, games and events that Houstonians love. [...] we all know there is never a shortage of ups and downs, drama, grief, excitement and pure entertainment from our local teams. With Texas Sports Nation - both in print and on television - I am proud to work with two of the best, Houston Chronicle writers Jerome Solomon and Dale Robertson, to bring more coverage of the local sports scene. The Texans are back in season, the Rockets will start their 50th season in a few weeks, the Astros are fighting to stay in the American League wild-card race, UH is off to a hot start, and high school football is in full swing.
