If I want to chat it up about Texans football, I'm doing that here and not with random dude on elevator.

Different times.
GP I think your post has much to do with it. I still strike up conversation with random folks wearing and NFl gear & lead into Texans but probably many do not do that.

I have stronger since of urgency/trepidation with Cody out now and OD probably reduced to just a few plays if that.
