July is the slowest month on the American sports calendar – no football, no basketball, no hockey and no major college sports. Thankfully, your Houston Astros are one of the hottest teams in baseball, having gone from last place to a half-game out of the Wild Card in June, so all is not lost.

The Houston Dynamo will host a significant tournament match against a heated rival, and the NWSL’s Houston Dash have a big game on the schedule this month as well. Houston Texans training camp is right around the corner, too.

Even in the dog days of summer, it could be a lot worse here in Houston.
