    There's a new blog at HT.com called Deep Slant that is supposed to provide some insider view to our Texans. The problem is that this "writer" likely knows as much about NFL football and the Houston Texans as I do about a random Indian cricket team. So there you go... a self proclaimed die-hard Colts fan is our go-to source for Texans information.

    You can read some of her "work" here... http://www.hlntv.com/article/2012/08/30/women-football-fan-nfl-ncaa-confessions

    New blog... http://www.houstontexans.com/news/a...he-Intro/5ea26a6a-5c8b-4cdd-bd3e-9bbdbb3aba3c

    And follow her on Twitter here: @deepslant

    The rest of us recognized it as a typo. Just saying.

    I won't be giving her page any views. I might just tweet to her and let her know that the Colts suck.

    ....but if this is her inner self I'll take mine rare. :bender:

    My real opinion, though, is this is so incredibly unnecessary. To have a Colts fans blog on as some type of Texan? Just goofy. I can't imagine why this came to be.

    Does that mean we can trade Richard Justice to the Titans?

    It's one thing to have a typo in a post on a MB but having a glaring typo in a published piece of work that supposedly went through an editor is fair game for ridicule.

    To leave an error up like that and not come back and fix it, that's unprofessional. That should not happen on a professional site or a site with aspirations of being professional.

    Most writers are obviously not hired for their loyalties, so it won't matter in the long run.

    I thought Tanya Ganguli was a decent hire. She's the only interesting (non-blog) writer at that publication.

    She was on Texans All-Access with Marc Vandermeer yesterday afternoon and was quite awful.

    The chemistry between her and Marc was not there and she made several noticeable gaffes.

    I would generally scoff at the idea that she is unworthy of the position just because she is a Colts fan, but she was really, really bad on the radio.

    Should have left it right there. I have a question, Wonger. Have you, at any point in your life, been a headline writer for the National Enquirer? I'm fully expecting, 'CHIMP GIVES BIRTH TO HUMAN BABY!!' in the next installment ;)

    She's been around for a little while now. She was interning at sports radio 610. I know she is going to be on with Mark now for Texans all access but I didn't hear her yesterday.

    But regarding her fandom...I don't really care. A lot of these people come from other places or were fans of other teams before covering the local teams.

    WHAT?!

    No more Hottie, er I mean, Patti Smith?

    They just might have lost a viewer.

    What is Ms. Smith's future now? Where's she going and what's she going to be doing?
