Default Does the offseason drive you crazy?

Is it me, or does the football offseason just feel extrodinarily long? I'm ready for football now! We still have to wait 3 months I want to see the Texans play (whether on TV or in person). Reading all this stuff in the Chronicle is nice and good, but I'm ready to see the Texans Gameday section.

Well the offseason is pretty long compared to the other sports, but if I want football during the offseason I always go to the XBOX and play Madden!

To have something drive you crazy assumes that you are not already there in the first place.

My latest blog post is what happens when there is no football and you have seen and heard every single threat about not being a fan no more:

Rant du jour.

Made myself giggle. Sure sign of off-season crazy. I need to do a real football post next.

Liked the Cowboy joke that turned up in the comments.


Sure would be nice if the Astros started playing better.

This off-season has been longer than most, it seems. Maybe not as long as the off-season before our first season, but it definitely feels longer than any we've had so far since getting the team.

But, pre-season games in August, that leaves June and July. Then we have training camp in July (right?), so then that leaves June. So get all your chores done in the next month or so!

Man, I have to stop thinking about it...my eyes are going to pop out!

Ah, Texan Chick - there is crazy and then there is crazier. I know things are getting bad when I start watching baseball and soccer.

The good news is that come August - or maybe even July - I shall return to my normal crazy off-kilter self.

As my sig says, I have been there. It's kind of nice, peacefull in a disorented sort of way. I wouldn't have had as much fun I guess without my internal buddies. We are all relativly calm now and are just trance like waiting for the season. I sure hope the medication holds out that long.

To me, it feels like any other offseason! It feels longer to most becuz we have basically a new team with new coaches & players, a new system both on offense & defense! I think it's an exciting time for Texans' fans everywhere! Just enjoy the ride or journey like The Dream would say about life. Right now, I'm waiting for the NBA draft & who the Rocktets pick, 8 & 32! I hope they can find gems!

Sorry Edo, but I'm fresh out of sympathy for you. You're about ready to enjoy
the weather of a glorious Colorado Summer, while the rest of us down here are gonna have to sweat out the heat, monotony, and confinement of Texas in the summertime.

There's a 20 page thread on the acquisition of the 3rd string RB from the 2nd worst team in the league.

The proof is in the pudding.

***edit***
He's the best 3rd string RB that I can think of.

Oh I have plenty of summertime hardships, 80-85 degrees, 30% humidity.......wait...guess I don't. I do feel for y'all in Houston in the summer. When I lived there, the heat and Humidity really was opressive.

Default The Babin and TJ threads have devolved into a pile of goo.

What drives me crazier is not the off-season, it is silly stuff said in threads about players in May. IT'S MAY!!! MAY!!! OK, almost June, but still, c'mon.

People are just making stuff up. Females are supposed to be the biggest gossips? HA!!! Most gossipy people I know are sports and political folks.

(Oh, btw, gratuitous plug. AJ is mentioned in the blog today in my summary of the Texans OTAs to date. The blog post is goo free.)

Chick I agree with you a lot, but on TJ I'm somewhat in disagreement with you. What bothers me is how TJ looks. He looks terribly out of shape. I could care less if he is struggling with his position, because that can be corrected.

I thought we started TC's on the 9th, but the point is in any other camp he would be in serious trouble. Hopefully, he can loose some of that weight and get into shape. I hope he does.
