When the Astros won the World Series this year, it was an emotional event for thousands. Not having played in the championship game since 2005, and losing badly, taking home their first World Series win brought up a lot of feelings for everyone. Even so, no one felt quite as grateful as Astros catcher and former transient, Evan Gattis.

Life has its ups and downs for everyone, but some have a bumpier ride than most. Evan is one of these people. Unlike many major league players, Evan hasn’t been in the game since high-school. Not that he wasn’t offered the chance.

Both Texas A&M and Rice University offered him a scholarship right out of high school. After all, the lightning fast catcher showed a lot of promise. Unfortunately though, Evan had a fear of failure so severe it caused him to turn the offers down.

The same fears holding him back from pursuing a career in baseball also caused Gattis to seek comfort in drugs and alcohol. So when the time came to decide where to go in life, he chose to check himself into rehab. Not the most conventional choice of a scouted athlete!

We love showing off our favorite performances from “America’s Got Talent” — people are constantly surprising us with the level of skill that they possess. And these two kids you’re about to see? They’re some of the best.

The two kids we’re talking about are named Artyon and Paige — they are both dancers. When they took the stage at America’s Got Talent, they announced to the judges that they would be performing a routine to the popular song ‘Footloose.’

The performance starts and Paige begins dancing on the judges’ table while Artyon is sliding on the floor with backup dancers in tow. He hops up without effort, and the performance gets better from there.

Artyon even jumps up and lands in the splits, something no one expected from the 10-year-old boy. As they continue to dance together, it’s obvious that these two kids have chemistry. They are performing flawlessly.

Then comes the well-known part of the song where he shouts “got to cut loose!” they are performing their routine flawlessly. Even Simon is starting nod and bounce his head with a smile while watching these two.
