The city of Houston was in high spirits Monday, giving a hero’s welcome to their baseball team, the Astros, for winning the 2022 World Series, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies in six games.
As is always the case with victorious sports teams, a victory parade was held in Houston, but one person who showed for the celebration wasn’t exactly welcomed by fans, according to HuffPost:
Houston Astros fans gathered in the city’s streets on Monday to honor the team’s World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
However, some people seemed more enthusiastic about booing Sen. Ted Cruz than they were about cheering the Astros’ victory.
For some reason, the smarmy Texas Republican rode in a car in the parade ― a move that didn’t score many points with fans.
Numerous videos taken at the parade show Cruz being brutally booed by thousands
Twitter users were delighted to see Cruz being so rudely received by Texans, and they magnified the senator’s humiliation.
