HOUSTON — Forget taking you out to the ballgame, a giant pothole near the Houston Astrodome is simply taking people out. At least, out of their cars.

This week's Pothole of the Day is near South 610 West near Engelmohr and Cambridge streets.

"When you hit this pothole, just know you have to go to the car dealership afterwards," Cleon Davis, a man who frequents the area, said.

And with Superbowl LI coming to the Bayou City soon, locals said other streets around the area have been getting fixed. They're hoping their crater-lined street will be repaired, too.
