The top three Houston Sports franchises have had their fair share of challenges and here is the state of them going into the year 2020. What’s up?

As 2019 nears its end and 2020 is on the horizon, each of the Houston Sports teams is dealing with issues like every other organization. With the holiday season around the corner, it’s time we come up with our Christmas list.

Houston Sports fans, it’s nearing the point where we celebrate a holiday season that we get the love and support from family and friends. You get to spend time with the loved ones as well as open presents. Then, the countdown to a new year, or in this case, a new decade, begins.

During all this, we get to sit back and watch sports, including the Rockets and Texans while preparing for 2020. There is still plenty of chances for those teams along with the Astros to be as successful and more. But for right now, there are some concerns from us fans going with each of them. The Texans are inconsistent in trying to reach the AFC Championship Game and beyond. The Rockets are having mental lapses in trying to get to the NBA Finals. The Astros? Well, they’re dealing with more than just a World Series loss with the ongoing investigation.

As a Houston Sports fan myself, I typically like to defend my teams even when you have these so-called “experts” who think they know more than they do. I don’t mind people saying we won’t win and here’s why as long as they provide the facts. But it’s the arrogance and the perceived hater attitude that gets me and makes me want to shut them up.

Still, there are times when they are right and for now, each team has to deal with criticisms. I have criticisms of each team as I’m sure y’all do as well. But rather than get angry about the frustrations, I decided to come up with a Christmas list or a New Year’s resolution for each side. No, championships are not part of this list because we expect and strive for that. I’m talking about things that we need to correct before we focus on winning it all.

Now I’m going to be fair and express what I think a lot of fans are probably thinking right now about our sports teams. I won’t be mad, but there’s a sense of urgency that has to be done right now. So as far as I’m concerned, 2019 is over. It’s time to see what we would like for 2020.
