Dusty Baker finally won his first World Series, and he pulled a Jimmy Johnson afterwards.

The Houston Astros beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 in Game 6 of the World Series on Saturday night to clinch the title. It was Baker’s first championship despite him having over 2,000 career regular season wins.

During the trophy ceremony on the field at Minute Maid Park, Baker was being interviewed on FOX’s broadcast. He was asked by Kevin Burkhardt what has been the most enjoyable thing during the Astros’ run.

Baker was struggling to answer the question and then blurted out, “how ’bout them Astros!”

You can see it around 50 seconds into the video:

The World Series seemed like it was meant to be for Houston. Prior to Baker finally winning his first championship, Justin Verlander also finally got his first pitching win in the World Series.

As for the Jimmy Johnson line, that’s what the former Dallas Cowboys coach said in the locker room after his 1992 team beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game before going on to win the Super Bowl.

How about them Cowboys and how about them Astros?
