    Twas the month of our Christmas along the Gulf coast,
    Not a creature was stirring 'cause it's too hot for most,
    The stockings were hung by the A/C vent with care,
    In hopes that St. FedEx man soon would be there,

    Texans fans were nestled all snug in their recliners,
    With visions of a Super Bowl, nothing could be finer,
    I don't have a 'kerchief but I have a cap on,
    As I settle to watch baseball 'cause it's the only thing goin',

    When out in the driveway there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from the Lazy-Boy to see what was the matter,
    Away to the window as fast as I could,
    Stupmed my toe on an end table, I stumped it real good,

    The sun was still bright, the humidity high,
    Gave assurance of what grass I had left would soon die,
    When what to my wondering eyes do I see,
    But a big white step van, as big as could be,

    With a little old driver who was wearing his specs,
    I knew in a moment it must be FedEx,
    More rapid than eagles he hopped out of the truck,
    To the packages in back, oh what luck,

    He spoke not a word as he locked up the back,
    As he headed towards my door I almost had an anxiety attack,
    And raising his hand to knock on my door,
    The excitement had peaked, I almost fell to the floor,

    He greeted me with a smile and ask me to sign,
    I scribbled my name and the package was mine,
    My tickets are here, My tickets are here, I screamed with joy,
    This surely has to be my best ever toy,

    The driver ran back to his truck and threw it in gear,
    I almost believe I started to tear,
    And I heard him exclaim as he backed out the drive,
    Happy Christmas to all Texans fans, Happy Christmas in July!

    OK, serious question here - why the fuss over the flag? I mean, I can understand the tailgaters wanting to fly it over their tents on Sundays, but aside from that, what is it? I still have mine folded up in a closet somewhere, and it's never even been displayed. I kind of scratched my head when I got it, shrugged, and stuck it in the closet.

    I have an inside source within the Texans organization. I am told the gift this season will be a one year membership in the Jelly of the Month Club.

    I proudly fly my Texans flag outside my house on a daily basis.

    Wanna sell yours to me?

    Seriously, Nitro my flag flew out of my truck going home from a game last year and I have been looking for one every since. If you don't mind parting with yours, I'd love to exchange a few PM's and purchase yours

    Looks like a bidding war may ensue for you here, eriadoc.

    Flags are pretty popular.
