    Still debating whether I want to fork over $300+ per ticket for the wife and I. I have a gut feeling that O’Brien will go brain dead come kickoff.

    Tell 'em, Mayor! :shades:

    HOUSTON: a city of CHAMPIONS. Just like I believe in our #Astros[​IMG] I believe in our #Texans[​IMG]. Send the Cowboys back to Dallas defeated! #HoustonStrong. st

    ---------------------------------------

    Hey, but no mention of the Rockets? They play a preseason game today and the regular season starts next week. They're closer to winning a championship (very close) than the Texans are. And the Astros will soon give us back-to-back World Series titles!

    The Texans better wake up. This is a city of champions! Do your part.

    The Astros are making Houston proud again.
    Time for our Texans to wake up and play ball. These guys have allot to live up to.

    Go Texans!

    We need to display a consistent pass rush against Dak Prescott tonight. I heard he's averaging 2.3 yards per pass when he's pressured. And Watt and Clowney have a combined 31 pressures on the young season.

    Had soccer too earlier to do it this morning. Won’t be home until time to leave for game.

    If you’d like to start making the game day threads I’ll be glad to turn over the reigns.

    Osuna for one

    But I was referring to the differences in the organizations. Even you can certainly see the differences in thw way the teams acquire players and are run in general.

    Totally different styles of management.

    I will be at the game today sporting my Astros gear, since I stopped buying Texans gear in 2010.

    Go Astros

    Will watch first half of the early games at home, then to my Godson's for BBQ. I will head to stadium about 5:30ish.

    Playing Diablo 3 on the PC and watching the Jaguars vs. Chiefs game on CBS. Just burning some time before the Texans game tonight. I may sneak in a movie soon. I want to watch some of the Rockets vs. Spurs preseason game at 3 PM later today.

    It's going to be a hectic day for me tomorrow morning. I've got a doctor's appointment that I need to rush to at 11 AM. So I can make it back home before the Astros at Cleveland game begins at 12:30 PM. Game 3 of the ALDS and potential clincher: That champagne will be popping in the visitor's club house after the game!

    I'm going to enjoy watching the Astros sweep the Indians tomorrow afternoon with my favorite starting pitcher on the mound! So there's no way I'll miss a second of the game.

    I did some light drinking this morning (no beer) and enjoyed a couple of bottles of Seagram's Escape strawberry daquiri. Because I won't be able to drink anything tonight during the Texans vs. Cowboys game.

    I'm expecting the Texans to beat the Cowboys tonight!
    We're going to reach 2-3 and get back on our feet again.

    Life has not gone well for me when the Braves play a playoff game on a Texans gameday.

    2005 - Texans lose to rival Titans in an ugly game, Braves lose the 18 inning Chris ******* Burke game. I'm sure you Houston assholes enjoyed that one.

    2010 - Texans get embarrassed by the Giants, Braves lose Game 3 to the Giants by giving up 2 runs in the 9th aka the Brooks Conrad Game.

    2013 - Texans get blown the **** out against the Niners on Sunday Night Football as the Braves get blown out by the Dodgers in Game 3 at the same time.

    2018 - Texans are teetering on the brink of complete collapse and the Braves are teetering on the brink of elimination

    Today better be different. I can't handle that **** again.
