Christmas Astros Style

A Pearland man has dedicated his holiday to the Astros historic World Series win. Clint Richardson is the current star of the Green Tea subdivision in west Pearland, turning his lawn into a celebration of all things Astros in 2017. One portion of the Pearland resident's yard is covered in large Astros jerseys, while another end has a large World Series trophy that Richardson constructed himself. Visitors can check out Richardson's handiwork in the 2300 block of Golfcrest. A few people have even taken special trips to take selfies with the trophy and the jerseys in the yard.
