The fun never stops when you win.
The Houston Astros are the 2022 MLB World Series champs, after beating the Philadelphia Phillies in six games during the Fall Classic.
When the Phillies won Game 3 in Philadelphia and took a 2-1 lead, it looked like they could have the last word.
However, they didn’t win again, as Houston took the last two games in Philadelphia and Game 6 at home, in Minute Maid Park, to pop the champagne.
The customary World Series championship parade took place in Houston on Monday, and the fun never stopped.
In fact, you could see Jose Altuve, one of the Astros’ stars, clapping and smiling.

That’s the smile of someone who finally snapped a postseason-long slump in the World Series and had some timely hits.
There Are Plenty Of Reasons To Celebrate In Houston
The Astros also gave manager Dusty Baker his first World Series ring, so they have plenty of reasons to be happy.
They won their second World Series in six years.
The first one was tainted by the sign-stealing scandal, but the Astros showed in subsequent years that they are a top organization while playing fair and square.
They went to the American League Championship Series in 2018 and 2020, and advanced to the World Series in 2019, 2021, and 2022.
No team has had such a long streak of years among the best four teams in MLB in a while.
The Astros just defeated three very good ballclubs on the way to the championship: the Seattle Mariners, the New York Yankees, and the Phillies.
Now, it’s time to decompress and celebrate.
They deserve to have fun: this time, they earned their rings on the field while playing a clean game.
