All a Matter of Perspective
The Houston Dynamos win the Major League Soccer title on penalty kicks, "the first major title brought to the city since the Comets won the WNBA in 2000."
(Although to be fair, that assertion doesn't actually seem to appear in the link it's ascribed to.)
By the way, the Chron link's very url flashes that Houston "Clutch City" moniker. Pth. Houston is well below average in league semifinal appearances, league titles ... and in converting semifinals into titles.
At least for the major sports.
