GALVESTON'S New Wave

GALVESTON'S New Wave

Houston Astros star Lance Berkman, of all people, put the enigma of Galveston to rest for me. About 13 years ago, the slugger was a guest on a Houston sports talk show a few weeks after Hurricane Ike nearly laid the island to waste. He was talking about a wedding there attended by his teammate, Galveston native Brandon Backe. Unfortunately, the after-party at the poolside bar of The San
Luis Resort, owned by island-born hospitality mogul Tilman Fertitta, got out of hand. Backe wound up fighting with Galveston police officers, badly injuring his shoulder. What, the host asked Berkman, had Backe been thinking? Berkman sighed. "The thing you have to know about Brandon," Berkman replied, measuring his words, "is that he is not from America." "Brandon is from Galveston."
