    Whoa.

    Just heard it on the radio - apparently, it's official.

    730 PM Monday night.

    Um, I'm guessing this means the Texans won't be on TV in Austin. SIGH. GOD I hate the Cowboys.

    It could rain pretty badly on Monday too right? I don't know. What station will the game be on?

    I suspect they wanna see what happens once Ike hits landfall.

    We'll see on Saturday if this holds.

    We won't get the game down here either if that is the case...

    (Unless CBS retains the rights to the game)

    It was official when I posted it, but okay.

    Man, I'm so pissed that this won't be on TV in Austin. Talk about ruining my weekend... better weekend than people who are going to get crushed by the storm, though.

    I guess this means altering the Texans, Ravens, or both bye-weeks to play at a later date?

    Why would they? How many people would want to see a match up of a team that gotten blow the heck out last week vs a team that went 4-12 and lost to to the lowly lolphins last year? Wouldn't they put us as the late game, with Cowboys being primetime?

    I wouldn't mind having the game slotted like the one the past monday, and I rather us have the latter of the time. That way we'll all be home and comfy by the time the game start, granted we'll have to stay up later then usual(for the game and post-game ranting/blissing).

    On the game: No offense Ravens fans, but I hope we come out and dominate the hell out of you guys. I want everyone to see us and fear us when they look at their schedule and see us on "week X". I want respect damnit. Sorry Baltimore, but you're going the sacrificial lamb of the week.

    Oh well looks like I wont get to see the game. I can't get to the Sports bar on Monday evening and they won't show it in Denver. Hopefully there will be a link to on the site.

    Yeah, the secondary markets that want to carry the game. Remember, we're talking about friggin KEYE here. I'm sure they think whatever their normal Monday night programming will rate better than a Texans game going against a Dallas game.

    When I'm watching the game Monday night, I'll believe it.
