Roberts' Family World Series Watch Party

Dave Roberts, the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has some ties to Houston, Texas. So when the Houston Astros met the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series in 2017, there was a small percentage of Houstonians wearing the Dodger Blue. Some of them were related to Dave Roberts.

I along with Rhiannon Walker of The Undefeated gathered with some of the Roberts family at a small church north of Houston to watch Game 5 of the 2017 World Series. The game that started on October 29th and ended on October 30th was one of the best I'd ever seen. There were multiple highs and lows for both teams but in the end, the Astros were victorious 13-12 after 10 innings of baseball.

Tony Farmer - Lee College Basketball

I worked on a story almost a year ago that never ran. It still probably won't, but who knows. Tony Farmer was a high school basketball star in Cleveland who beat up his girlfriend in an apartment building lobby. He was sentenced to 3 years in jail and became an internet meme when he fainted in court after being sentenced to three years in prison. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ku6vyVoqsA After his release, he made his way to Lee College, a junior college in Baytown, TX, to play basketball. In 2017, he declared for the NBA draft but went undrafted.
