This early morning I woke up to a scenario that I must have been suppressing and denying when the sun is up. One that really hasn't been discussed........or for that matter brought up......at least, not in any overt manner.

What would the Texans be with an injured Mario.........without Mario? It's unthinkable. Welcome to my nightmare.........

I used to like you CND.

Or should I call you Debbie Downer?

Does this dream of yours involve Vic Fangio?

I dunno, but I honestly think DeMeco is closer to being the one indispensable player on the defense, and I'm not for a moment discounting Marios value to the team as our primary edge-rusher.

You can say the same thing about a number of players on this team...

Steve Slaton
Andre Johnson
Matt Schaub
Anyone on the Oline really.

if somethin happened to 59, Zac could step in and do a good job, we dont have anyone that can replace Mario's contributions to our team

It's a good thing that Super Mario is indestructible. No need to worry.

I didn't enjoy Andre being absent for half of '07. I don't think a second time around would be any better.

EDIT: "Starting RB Chris Brown" also doesn't do anything for the ol' nervous system either.

Ahhh Cloak, that's not a real nightmare. Let me give you one that already kept you awake one night.

Mario gets a severe Lisfranc injury, with a blown up 2nd metatarsal, and his surgeon wants to "fire a pin" through the whole works in order to fix it.

Now, how's that for a nightmare? :D

Supermario powers up quickly, so I'm not worried. Just give him one of those magic mushrooms or something.

Seriously? Why start a thread like this. It is not like this franchise has had enough bad Karma you tought you needed to create more? It is no wonder that this board is full after a loss and empty after a win.

Those who were there, that awful, awful, scary 15 minutes last month know exactly what it would feel like. I can't put it into words but I can tell you it didn't feel good. I would imagine Mario would invoke a similar reaction.

You know who you are. And you know the code. It won't be spoken of.



Go Texans.

Looks like you also have a statue of The Blessed Mother (I could be wrong) but that always helps (I'm Catholic and no I'm not turning this thread into a religion thing).

Seriously though, I think we've seen the outcome of the original questions (I'm not going to actually say it) back in 2006. Back when Mario played hurt.

I like my dream better......




Last night I had a dream. I dreamt I was as light as the ether- a floating spirit visiting things to come. The shades and shadows of the people in my life rassled their way their way into my slumber. I dreamed that Pacman and Michael Vick had decided to return to prison. Probably that's just as well. I don't mean to sound superior, and they're a swell couple of guys, but maybe they weren't ready yet to come out into the world. And then I dreamed on, into the future, to a Christmas morn in Reliant Stadium where Steve Slaton was running for 100+ yards and 2 Td's. I saw Vince Young a few years later, still having no luck getting the cops to listen to his wild tales about being a HOF QB. Maybe he threw in one Aggie joke too many. I don't know. And still I dreamed on, further into the future than I had ever dreamed before, watching Mario's progress from afar, taking pride in his accomplishments as if he were our own. Wondering if he ever thought of us and hoping that maybe we'd broadened his horizons a little even if he couldn't remember just how they got broadened. But still I hadn't dreamt nothing about the Super Bowl until the end. And this was cloudier cause it was years, years away. But I saw an old couple being visited by their children, and all their grandchildren too. The old couple weren't screwed up. And neither were their kids or their grandkids. And I don't know. You tell me. This whole dream, was it wishful thinking? Was I just fleeing reality like I know I'm liable to do? Reeves and Amobi, they can be good too. And it seemed real. It seemed like us and it seemed like, well, our stadium. If not Houston, then a land not too far away. Where all players are strong and wise and capable and all fans are happy and beloved. I don't know.

:turtle:


Bonus question: What movie did I get this from?

I had a dream that I was checking into a fancy hotel, I head up to my room, and somebody's already there. He has an automatic toy weapon and he's shooting the fluff out of a stuffed raccoon.

Beat that!

Adding dry humor to this MB is not why this board is full after a loss and empty after a win......it's the historical team pattern of Jeckyll and Hyde that has encouraged the same from their fans.
