I looked all through the "@" replies to him during the game. Nothing warranted a "TRUE fan" comment.

If he was listening to the boo's at the stadium, they were warranted.

If he was listening to Sports 610, well, that's his problem.

And Mario goes out with a bad injury. And AJ is out. And Al Davis died the day before and now the Raiders have a fake moment to fight for all of a sudden. The Janitor nails all his kicks. The fake punt. Our run game was nonexistent. Schaub screws the pooch at the end of the game, teasing JUST enough and then crushing our souls with one weak-ass throw right into the hands of the defender like he did last year vs. Ravens.

I just. I don't. I mean, what the HELL?!?!?

Last year it was the defense putting the offense in a bad spot. Look at this game and most of the 1st half when oakland had 6 plays. Instead of being up by 21, 24 pts, they were up by 8.

I had that "we're gonna' lose" feeling at the start of the 2nd quarter.

Momentum shifted. The Mario injury started allowing Campbell to have more time, and their run game began to get better. And field goals. FIELD GOALS is what scared me. Because all they had to do was just get Janikowski into range, and it was an automatic 3. Bang, bang, bang, BOOM! We're toast.

My wife and I discussed things on the flight back home Sunday night.

We paid $50 each to get into the UFC Fan Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center this past Saturday. We spent roughly 3 hours there, snapping photos of UFC fighters who were literally three feet in front of us--We didn't stand in line for autographs, we just walked by the tables and got within three feet and snapped photos of fighters we'd spent the past 5 years watching on TV during UFC fights.

We got a seat on the second row of the main stage, and out comes like 7 very high-profile UFC fighters. Forrest Griffin, Josh Koshcheck, Matt Mitrione, Brendan Schaub, Stephan Bonnar, Cole Miller, and Rashad Evans. The sit down and people like me (yes, I got to ask a question of one of those guys!) gets to ask fighters questions and they answer candidly and openly. No coach-speak, no political correctness. Just butt-honest answers from scrappers who fight for a living. It was REAL. It was touchable.

After the Q&A session, Dana White comes out and announces which fighter will be on the cover of the new UFC video game. It's Anderson Silva, and he also comes out to thunderous applause. Just 20 feet or so from me is Dana White and Anderson Silva. Then, two guys get up there and play the new video game up on the big screen above the stage. The guy using Anderson Silva wins, and out runs Anderson Silva who hoists the young guy up on his (Silva's) shoulders and celebrates with the kid. The crowd goes wild.

A guy at the big UFC Exhibit trailer outside in the front driveway of the convention center motions us into the trailer, like a carnival barker asking us to come spend a quarter on a game. We go inside and there's all this museum quality UFC stuff, such as a real UFC championship belt that you can hoist upon your shoulder and have your own photo made with it. The carnival barker comes up to us and gives a free DVD of UFC 47 event, just says "I think you'll enjoy this." No strings attached.

I liked the Texans game, even though we lost. It was unique. But I think the next time the UFC is in Dallas, my wife and I are going to shell out several hundred dollars (maybe even a grand or so) and get great premiere seats at the Dallas event. The environment and the showmanship and the way the fans like me were catered to at the fan expo...it made me more of a fan thanI already was, and I was a BIG fan to begin with.

In the fights, if I see great competition I am happy, No matter which fighter wins, even if my guy loses, I am amazed at the outcome and happy that it ended with a bang. The feeling I had, as we sprinted out of Section 353 right after Schaub tossed the interception at the goal line was hard to swallow and difficult to forget. I still suffer some lingering after-effects of it. I have invested so much emotional energy into this team.

All I know is that THIS right here, honestly, is the only thing keeping me sane. Without this message board, without the relationship with people like you--even though it's a virtual relationship--is what keeps me around. Otherwise, I would have packed it up and said the Texans can find some other schmucks to fool every season with false hope and hype.

I'm very close to not even caring about them. Win or lose next Sunday, I'm sapped and I'm worn out from it. I can't imagine what it's like to be a season ticket holder and experience this "stuff" on a regular basis. After watching the collective fan base at Reliant pour their hearts out and scream for 3+ hours for the players to succeed, and to watch several bone-headed plays and decisions cost us the win in a league where every win or loss counts BIG TIME toward the ultimate goal...it was sickening to be there in person and to know that thousands of ticket holders continue to suck it up and go there and repeatedly support them. My hat's off to you guys. It seriously is. It was an eye-opening experience to find parking, walk a couple of miles to the stadium in the rain, walk a ways to the seats, pay for the tickets, pay for the food and drinks, get rowdy all game long, and then bolt out of there to beat the traffic out. It's an exercise I couldn't repeat every year in perpetuity.

You guys who stick it out, you amaze me. My hat is off to you.
