    Does anyone know if the Steeler/Texan game is going to be televised? I checked the Keye website & it was TBA, not sure how soon they will pick a game?

    Someone here has had a phone conversation with the guy at KEYE, and the guy assured him that the Steelers/Texans game will be on TV.

    That said - the same guy also said that the season opener LAST year was going to be on KEYE, and that turned out to be a bold-faced lie... so the answer is - in truth, we don't know.

    No kidding, I'll believe it when I see it.

    Last night I was watching the Astros and the shopping channel programming that is normally on that station kicked in right at 8 o'clock, I'm glad I couldn't find Grande's phone # before it switched back to the game.

    I don't trust any Central Texan with my Houston sports.

    We'll see. Like I said, someone here talked to the guy at KEYE and he confirmed it would be on TV, but he's lied in the past. We'll know more Wednesday when the NFL TV Maps for week 1 are released.

    I can assure you after that dismal showing today, K-EYE will be playing nothing but the Hillbille Oilers. However for those who choose to go watch the games out, I have spoken personally with the owner of Saxon Pub and they have the NFLticket and will be playing all the Texans games.

    You know what, same thing I said last year, we don't deserve to be show on TV. We're crap and you guys are piss that they want to show a competitive team over a mediocre team? Who's care if that team is in their own state, it just shows you that KEYE is embarrassed to play our game on their TV. I can understand how that.

    See you guys next week at 3rd base. KEYE might hate their second child, but I cherish them, no matter how ugly, stupid, and clumsy they are.

    It ain't easy being green. *fingers crossed* I could be at the Astros game but would love nothing more than to get home and watch the game that night.

    Yep, I forgot about the scheduling too. Guess we got another week before the "K-EYE" Bowl. Winner takes all.
