    What Houston Lost to Finally get the Rockets and Astros on TV Again

    For two years, Comcast SportsNet viewers had sarcastically needled Bill Doleman, asking him why he didn't dress more like his Houston Rockets studio show co-host, Calvin Murphy, whose flamboyant suits crashed nightly through every barrier of sartorial subtlety at warp speed.

    Houston Remembers 9/11: Day of the Attacks Still Resonates with Locals

    Houston Rockets 1993 vs. Houston Rockets 2012, the Hard Truth

    It's been a tough start for the hapless Rockets. With early injury problems, a trade that didn't happen in the lockout-shortened offseason and a new, unproven coach, it's no wonder the first few weeks of the season have been somewhere between "OH GOD NO!" and "Just shoot me."
