The new owner of the Houston Rocket ... IS

The Houston Rockets Official statement about the sale of the team to local billionaire Tilman Fertitta: HOUSTON – The Houston Rockets today announced that a definitive agreement has been signed for the purchase of the NBA franchise by Houston businessman Tilman J. Fertitta, sole owner of the Landry’s restaurant empire and Golden Nugget Casinos and Hotels.

Especially those in Houston who aren't seeing flood waters anymore with a pesky case of cabin fever. The mayor of Houston, Sylvestor Turner said he'd rethink it Monday... BUT YOU DECIDE... I TWEET THE CITY IN MY POLL BELOW!! My buddy Tim is even threatening to break up with businesses that follow curfew rules...So if you see him, give this beast a steak! Some don't even know when to be home so folks like Bobby at Dean's on social media are helping their SM neighbors...

They mayor did say "it exempts flood relief volunteers, those seeking shelter, first responders, and those going to and from work." - Sooo does that mean... if you're technically seeking shelter at a restaurant, volunteering to eat where people are working, it

Every Texan should know this handshake...

Some are surprised Ryan Korsgard went viral with this handshake, but most Texans know it... My dad taught it to me when I was a little girl.If Ryan weren't holding his mic, he might have known to add a light knock on the man's hand with his left too... That's the final touch!
