Talking Is it just I, or is this place getting wackier the closer it gets to Sunday?

It seems to me the threads are getting more intense, more hostile and everyone is on edge. So much is riding on this first game because it might set the tempo for the year. The Eagles want another SB run, the Texans want a win to build on. I know some people want Carr and Mario to succeed, and others them both to fail. Everyone is anxious for the season to start and the nervousness is showing up here.

Come on Sunday! Go Texans!

First game of the season, I'm still trying to see things with an objective eye. The desire for us to win may get the best of me eventually.

I didn't know that anybody wanted Carr and Williams to fail. I hope they have a great season and I hope the Texans have at least a 8-8 record.

Cannot wait for Sunday to get here. It is driving me insane.

Same.

Ive tried to be as non partial in my predictions and judgements...but this damn offseason took forever to go by. Im ready for some football. Last night I watched the game...although with DVR...I think I watched it about 5 times rewinding plays, and fast forwarding commercials.

Im just so amped up that the season is here my judgement is probably a little clouded.

D. B. Cooper, aka Dan Cooper, is a pseudonym given to a notorious aircraft hijacker who in 1971, after receiving a ransom payout of $200,000, leapt from the back of a Boeing 727 as it was flying over the Pacific Northwest. No conclusive evidence has ever surfaced regarding Cooper's whereabouts, and several theories offer competing explanations of what happened after his famed jump. The only clues to have turned up in the case are ambiguous: around $5,000 that washed up on the banks of the Columbia River, and part of a sign believed to be from the rear stairway of the plane from which Cooper jumped. The nature of Cooper's escape and the uncertainty of his fate continue to intrigue people. Today, the Cooper case remains the world's only unsolved hijacking.

Don't fool yourselves... there are a few petty people around who'd like nothing more than Mario and/or DC to fail.

Unfortunate but true...

Nope--he pops up all over. The movie Without A Paddle is about looking for his money. Kid Rock's Bawitaba has a lyric--DB Cooper and the money he took. He's a sneaky reference all over.

SWT, where you been buddy? I would have denied you access to the event in that getup.

Our cheerleaders are a special breed, that is for sure.
