Budweiser released a new commercial following the Houston Astros victory in the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

“Together we can overcome any deficit, any disaster that comes our way,” a voiceover states as the video appears to show damage from the horrific flood that rocked Houston a couple months ago.

The commercial wraps up with fans celebrating as the Astros clinched a piece of history and a World Series victory.

This commercial is what so many people love about sports. It’s nostalgic, it’s inspiring, it brings people hope and it makes you want to run through a wall.

Sports have gotten so political lately, especially the NFL, that it’s really easy to get lost in the chaos, and forget why we come together to watch a game. It’s not so we can banter back and forth about stupid stuff, such as politics.

We come together because it’s a common bond for a common goal. This commercial is all about that theme.
