Default Guess Mac really wanted VY

I just noticed on my tickets there is no longer Gallery Furniture gate, it's now Amegy Bank gate. (maybe I'm a little late with this knowledge) but I found it humorous.

By golly, if I take out 2 full page ads for a player and you don't take him - I'm taking my money elsewhere. Do you know who I AM?!?!?!? </Jimmy Mac voice>

This is the beauty of the free market system. He can now take his money and advertise with University of Texas or however he prefers and Amegy Bank is more than happy to take his place, advertising with the Texans. He was a fool to make his thinly veiled threats of taking his advertising elsewhere if the Texans didn't take Vince Young, as if the Texans would suffer without him.

Hey, note to Mattress Mac, this is the NFL, not Houston Wrestling or the Westside Tennis Club. Your money is chump change to the NFL.

I did hear Mattress Wac whine about being stuck for another 2 (or 3) years.

Way to go Mr. McNair. Gave him his chump change back and told him to "Have a nice day!"

I like it.

That's how the free market is supposed to work. You put your money in things you want to support.

yep, in a free market economy, businesses can decide where to advertise that will benefit them the most. Maybe he pulled his dollars from the Texans because Texans fans haven't been shopping at his store? It could always be market forces, and I know a few people that no longer shop there because of perceived slights towards the team. Some folks bear grudges, which can go both ways.

heh, someone could cash in by selling Schaub name patches to be sewn on their number 8 jerseys. People have asked me what they should do with their YKW jerseys, and I tell them to wear them! Never be ashamed of a player that was on our team (unless he's a convicted felon). I never fault people for wearing Boselli jerseys, either.

Big deal, they're still Texans fans!

But the parking lots are now called the Miller Lite Parking lots, the Miller Lite Yellow Lot, Miller Lite Orange Lot and so on.

Miller Lite is still backing the Texans.

As for Mac, he can load up the moving vans and take his business to 6006 I-65 north between Trinity and Ewing for all I care.
