And so I said, "Dude. Texans win that game. Period."
And he told me I was a homer and that he'd buy me a case of Diet Dr. Pepper if the Texans win. So I told him, "Cool, thanks for the case, I appreciate it."
And I asked so what would you have wanted in the remote outside chance that the Colts were able to find a way to win. And he said that the event of the Colts losing was so remote that he'd feel like he was stealing from me if I had to give him anything. So he just wants me to call and say I was wrong.
I can't wait to get a case of DDP from that smug Raider fan.
To be honest: I picked the Colts to win only because I don't want to be a homer and be wrong. I would much rather be wrong with Houston winning.
