My time might be up since my nice winning streak was blown last week, so who should be responsible this week?

Ryan

I will if y'all so wish...after all, I have the appropriate name for it!

I think we're all starting to get a bit superstitious around here...

Reminds me of Barry Corbin's quote in War Games..."G** D****t, I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it would do any good."

I would like to thank all of my supporters for this victory today. Gotta give credit to Arby's, Coca-Cola, Verizon, all of my sponsors, and of course the Houston Texans for this great opportunity. :woot2:

We need to keep this thread alive so we can debate the next thread starter. We don't know if brakos82 is our franchise thread starter yet, and Ryan shows promise as an incredibly solid and reliable backup with an already promising resume. Tough decisions.:lion:

Not really. You LOST last week. You're OUT!

And Brakos WILL be fired if he drops the ball. This is a sprint! Every game counts!

:thisbig:

Ryan
10-24-2009, 02:22 PM
Bump this, to make sure if brakos is good to go for tomorrow, or if he needs a replacement.

This is your make or break game brakos, with this game you could see yourself getting a nice paycheck, or filing for unemployment. No pressure though.:shades:

I won't be playing around the "puter" because i'll be at Reliant.

I'll start it next week.

Ryan
10-24-2009, 03:44 PM
I'll start it next week.

if brakos wins again this week than he might become our franchise thread starter.

I think we should each take turns.

Ryan

We replace the current one after he loses. Than we vote on who should do it next. No taking turns.

gary
10-24-2009, 04:00 PM
Someone is going to have to beat me to it next week.

Ryan
10-24-2009, 04:05 PM
And then we'll blame you when the Texans pull their pants down against Buffalo.

gary
10-24-2009, 04:15 PM
You're hoping they do not win next Sunday in order to blame me. Where is your fanhood? There isn't any rule on here about gameday threads anyway. What would you say if they won after I started the gameday thread? This is dumb anyway.

GuerillaBlack
10-24-2009, 05:05 PM

this.

we only switch once someone loses. ;)

hopefully brakos makes it every Sunday. and gary, don't take it too seriously. it's all in good fun.

Ryan
10-24-2009, 05:06 PM
Did i ever say that? No I don't think so. I'm a firm believer in good luck and bad luck, and brakos has good luck for now, so thats where i think we should go.

Yes it is dumb.

I see this "who starts the gameday thread" as an all in good fun kind of joke. I have no problem with it, just roll with the punches. Can't we all just hit a bong? http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii202/J4103V/p_bonghit.gif (I'm joking about the bong thing too Gary ;) ) kind of........... :)

I used to make gameday threads during the preseason and will continue to do so.

Ryan
10-24-2009, 06:08 PM
so thats why we sucked in the preseason.:choke:

i kid, but stop making a big deal out of this.

Me too. The most important thing from this is that there will be the gameday thread where we can all discuss and that is all.

Be cool guys!

Go Texans!!!

Somone told me about a friend of theirs, who near the end of the season last year was sitting on the pot during a game winning Texans drive. He's sat on the pot every game since. Must have a problem finding dates to watch the games with, though.:mcnugget:

one way to resolve it is by who has the winningest record... brb, i'ma do some tallying.

Makes sense, gameday threads move so fast it really doesn't matter who starts them, but the catfights are kind of annoying.

Based on 2009 season and preseason:

Brakos and Silver Oak - both started one thread only, with one win, 100%
Ryan - Three threads, Two wins, 66.6666...6%
Gary - two threads at 50%
B0ng, Maddict, euro-Texan - One thread each, all L's for 0%

powerfuldragon

PD was being sarcastic ...

pretty much. a gameday thread's a bunch of 1's and 0's floating around in an intangible cloud of more 1's and 0's. it has absolutely no bearing on the performance of highly trained athletes on sunday. if panties are to be wadded over who starts a gameday thead, then the mods should just start them.

your enthusiasm for this team is highly commendable, but other more creative outlets for it can be found.

or we could go with the old school, blackhole-style thread merge frenzy on game day. In the beginning....there would be tens and tens of threads started each and every gameday, and then we would unleash the mergebots from Bob McNair's marketing department executive offices and by the end of the day some guy who only wanted to know if Jon Wells was healthy ended up starting the game day thread.

I'm not sure why I reacted the way I did. I am very sorry I just think Mr. evil got the best of me. I just think the most important thing is being here to support our team and not worry about a silly gameday thread. Anyway, have fun at the game tomorrow and a great night. Please post this message in the thread for me if you don't mind and I hope eveything is foregotten about and we remain friends. GO TEXANS
