Back in the day, I actually won a contest to fill in for the 3 Amigos. They had an essay contest on why you should be the person that fills in while they have to leave early to their TV gig stuff.

So then the show was me and John O'Reilly. At it was actually one of my favorite gigs I ever did because instead of it just the host asking me questions, it was callers asking a wide variety of sports questions, including some sports law questions too.

So basically, you saw the call in board, and you had a sense of what they were going to ask but not really. It was a lot of fun.

This was obviously pre-blog, pre-Texans. Very, very fun. I didn't tell anyone that I was going to do it. I was surprised at hearing from people who heard it.

(Also one of the reasons I'm not too keen on radio hosts saying rude, untrue things about me on their shows. People listen to this stuff, sometimes believe it).

Josh starts taking shots and doing his best to belittle Steph and her "little blog". If he'd taken the high road and just stated the he'd agree to disagree, it'd be one thing. He chose to take the standard JI path of "I can't match you, so I'll try to bring you down".

I've had disagreements with Steph over her take on certain issues over the years, but I never felt any necessity to take this route.

Why? I guess it's because I'm not trying to be a sports-radio shock jock, and I'm trying to have an informed debate. It's also because I have great respect for her. Sure, blogging about the Texans seems like a dream job to many and in some ways I'm sure it is. It also means growing a pretty thick skin. Just like politics, you're going to have a sizeable group that vehemently disagrees with what you're saying. That's fine from your average respondee on Chron.com, but it's not supposed to be acceptable from the "professional" community.

Actually, most of the people who visit my blog are respectful, and disagree without being disagreeable. More often than not, I try to model that behavior, and don't encourage saying silly things to get a reaction. Typically, if you tend to be reasonable and give reasons for your point of view, people tend to be reasonable back.

The folks that aren't that way, I figure it says more about them than me more often than not.

Oh, and I'm always right. At least according to Wade Phillips on Twitter:

About fell out of my chair when I saw that tweet.

It's actually an insult to trash and garbage to compare it to Josh Innes.



Seth's unadulterated and unpolished takes are a breath of fresh air! My dad and I both dig his show, but we wonder how long it will take before management reels him in and tones him down.

Ah, the memories! After Fowler moved to a golf show on weekends, I called him and he asked what my golf question was. I just wanted to talk to him about the switch. Cool guy but would not go into why he gave up the other program. I had talked to him several times before & often disagreed but he never belittled me. I want to say he cowrote a book with someone. I know Mickey Herskowicz wrote several.

My wife just bought me one of Ed Fowler's books at Christmas. She found a used copy at Half Priced Books:

Loser Takes All: Bud Adams, Bad Football, & Big Business
