Default TexansTalk featured in ESPiN.com's "Overreaction Nation"

It's a subtle jab, but in good fun, and I think it shows that some of our own exuberance is more than matched by other fans around the country.

And it IS a "special place" here.

Here's the article. Fast-forward to the last paragraph for the reference.

The jab is too subtle to be effective.

Thanks for bringing that out since it explains the server crash earlier. We are getting nailed with traffic. BTW, we are going to be moving into an upgraded server within the next 2 days. The current server just can't take this load anymore. This is just one of the problems that comes with winning.

Actually, it has been VERY effective in terms of traffic. People are just going to click that link just out of curiosity.

Seriously, batten down the hatches. Here comes a new wave of drive-by posters!

Leahmic: yep. take a look at the comments posted at ESPN's site in response to that article. Their own readers hammer them badly for the overreaction claims...even breaking out the comment!

The jab at the end must have had something to do with the thread where one of our homers was asking if we might make it to the Super Bowl.

We must have sounded like Possum Holler fans.
