Default Christmas in July!!!

Twas the month of our Christmas along the Gulf coast,
Not a creature was stirring 'cause it's too hot for most,
The stockings were hung by the A/C vent with care,
In hopes that St. FedEx man soon would be there,

Texans fans were nestled all snug in their recliners,
With visions of a Super Bowl, nothing could be finer,
I don't have a 'kerchief but I have a cap on,
As I settle to watch baseball 'cause it's the only thing goin',

When out in the driveway there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the Lazy-Boy to see what was the matter,
Away to the window as fast as I could,
Stupmed my toe on an end table, I stumped it real good,

The sun was still bright, the humidity high,
Gave assurance of what grass I had left would soon die,
When what to my wondering eyes do I see,
But a big white step van, as big as could be,

With a little old driver who was wearing his specs,
I knew in a moment it must be FedEx,
More rapid than eagles he hopped out of the truck,
To the packages in back, oh what luck,

He spoke not a word as he locked up the back,
As he headed towards my door I almost had an anxiety attack,
And raising his hand to knock on my door,
The excitement had peaked, I almost fell to the floor,

He greeted me with a smile and ask me to sign,
I scribbled my name and the package was mine,
My tickets are here, My tickets are here, I screamed with joy,
This surely has to be my best ever toy,

The driver ran back to his truck and threw it in gear,
I almost believe I started to tear,
And I heard him exclaim as he backed out the drive,
Happy Christmas to all Texans fans, Happy Christmas in July!

That you've actually got it LOGGED is scary.

OK, serious question here - why the fuss over the flag? I mean, I can understand the tailgaters wanting to fly it over their tents on Sundays, but aside from that, what is it? I still have mine folded up in a closet somewhere, and it's never even been displayed. I kind of scratched my head when I got it, shrugged, and stuck it in the closet.

Spoke with the Texans ticket office today. Tickets will be mailed via FedEx beginning on Monday, 7-20. Do not know gift package yet. Asked but we'll see if she responds back with what it is.

She would not disclose what the gift was but I'm under the impression it's going to be different because I asked if it was going to be the same notebook we received and she said... it's a big surprise this year so NOBODY is going to know!
