You may have gotten busted for it but no simply being drunk in a bar does not satisfy the penal code for a PI which requires you be intoxicated enough to be a danger to yourself or others.

Yep..that last part is very loose.. i just paid the fine and got it done with, which looking back was the wrong thing to do...not enough people "not-guilty" the charge, which is why they give the tickets out like candy at a parade...

Why shouldnt the Texans be bashed? The past few years have showed us that at times they should be.
Heh. Far be it from AJ to "bash" the Texans when they do something dumb and/or play poorly.

Interesting that she will be covering the Texans. I wonder if it will be covering the Texans only. Paul Kuharsky covers the AFC south, but not just one team.

Good for her. She advances and gets to stay in Houston.

I had always wondered why ESPN didn't have dedicated beat writers. I mean, excluding the entire organization covering New York and Boston teams every day.

Well, this may or may not be the case, but Kuharsky's pretty much ESPN.com only, and you seldom if ever see him on TV. Based on the way she worded it, that doesn't appear to be the case with Tania.

I think this is a positive development. I've liked Tania's work since she's been here(Arian calf/hamstring mixup aside), and this is the first time (to my knowledge) that there's been a nationally based reporter with a Texans background. Yeah, she's probably got more time in with the Jags, but a.) She said she would be covering the Texans, and b.) Nobody cares about the Jags.

ESPN did a press release that all teams starting this season, would each have their own blogger/writer. They did a study and the readership for each team was worth the extra cost except for one: the Jaguars.
