The Houston Astros won their franchise’s first World Series, and absolutely no one seems to care.

Okay, I’m not looking at you two Houston Astros fans or bandwagoners. I’m comparing it to the breaking of curses that the Cubs and even the Boston Red Sox have pulled off in this century.

I’m talking about mundane news outlets.

I’m talking the books written before the wins (Last Pennant Before Armageddon, anyone?).

Let’s not forget the blockbuster movie with Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon.

It was the talk of seemingly everyone when the Chicago Cubs even looked like they were in breathing distance of the pennant and breaking the 71 year Billy Goat Curse. Let’s not even talk about the frenzy that was 2004 and the Curse of the Bambino. They were everywhere. Now, the Astros have done it for the first time in franchise history, and it has barely been a blip on the radar. It is the standard coverage that a team gets, brief passing mention, parade in their honor, and then it will be forgotten until baseball season starts.

Which is absolutely ridiculous. It’s so rare to get firsts in baseball that people should be shouting about it from the mountaintops. They should be the subject of a series of movies starring the handsome studs and beautiful starlets that most of us are fond of. It should be the hit of the year, not just a passing mention, followed by a cute animal interest segment.

But hey, Go Astros!
