Is print journalism dead? Maybe, but that definitely isn’t the case today with people in Houston lining up to get their hands on The Houston Chronicle’s Astros World Series champs newspaper.

Take a good look at these people getting their journalism on… you’re not going to see something like this until the next major sporting event (the Super Bowl) concludes:

The Chronicle’s printing press has probably never been this hot — look at that this thing churn out papers on papers on papers. The Capital J journalists are definitely rock hard watching this.

Last night they printed 130,000 copies. Then another 150,000, all gone. Now firing up the presses to print an extra 200,000. (@HoustonChron) pic.twitter.com/sosNN8wbky
