    Fined for throwing a snowball? Sheesh

    OK to throw footballs in the stands? I imagine more fans can be hurt fighting over the football than will be injured by a snowball.

    I sure hope the Texans don't see this junk and think that their opener will be easy. Last year we saw them take the Raiders lightly and get their asses spanked. Hopefully they still remember it.

    It may not be true but it frequently seems to me that when the Texans (and previously the Oilers) lose a starter they more often than not see a drop in play from their backup who's filling in. I've lost count of how many other teams backups have stepped in and looked like HOF players for a day against us though.

    I really would like to see that trend start going the other way.

    I would certainly second that.

    Seriously, what percent of players smoke? I'm guessing 33.3%. Not that I care, I just want to know.

    Based on my previous experiences, I'd say that 33.3% is way too low. I'd say it's closer to 55% believe it or not. Lots of NFL players smoke weed. And don't get me started on the NBA and MLB.

    Way too low? Really!? Man I was trying to be conservative but damn...

    I doubt it's that bad in the MLB, unless guys are just trying to calm down after raging out a roid session.

    I don't know about 55% but it is a fairly high percentage. I saw a lot of things that I probably should not have seen being a valet attendant over my years in Houston. One NBA player I will not name had a huge bag of crack in his cup holder.
