    I only had a few minutes to photoshop this, or it would've looked better. The wife was getting impatient for me to get off my butt and get the tailgating gear together...

    I'm pumped up for this game and hopefully I can move into my apartment in time for the game (starting school next week at UT - Austin). I'm looking foward to seeing our defense, especially Frank Okam and DelJuan Robinson tear it up out there!

    What? Rex Grossman day to day?

    I think your injury report leaves much to be desired.

    EDIT: Wow. That must have been perfect timing. That's not the message I replied to. Wolf must have edited it just as I hit reply.

    Will we have a decent picture this week? I'm sure 13 had a lot of complaints about last weeks broadcast. I wouldn't hold my breath though, they didn't fix it last season.

    In order to prepare for much the same this evening, I've been smearing my plasma screen with Vaseline all week to get used to the degraded picture. When the game comes on, I'll wipe the Vaseline off and should feel right at home with the lousy broadcast.:texflag:

    LOL! Sad but true, I think it will be the same.

    I read in the chron yesterday that ABC is going to have the same "quality" of cameras through the preseason. I believe they said some of the affiliates are not able to broadcast in better definition yet.

    edit: found it on David Barron's TV notebook:

    Not broadcasting live NFL games in HD is a crime against humanity. I don't care what KTRK's excuse is, they are a bunch of jerks for broadcasting in non-HD. The Houston Texans should find another station for their pre-season games.

    I'd be happy with a pixelated picture of the field, instead of Bob Allen's mug. I just want them to actually broadcast the game instead of the sidelines. Oh yeah, and maybe remove the graphics showing the starting lineup before the play happens. Yeah, maybe they will try that next season too.

    Hope to see Billy Miller for a few series anyway! I still miss the dude! Sentimental reasons!:) BUT, I think he has a knee injury.

    Gonna sit out most of this tailgate, BUT, my old body won't have to worry about TV, cause I'll be in my seat surrounded by TEXAN fans, I hope!

    Best of luck to you guys/gals out there who have to put up with subpar TV though. ABC needs to get their sheeeeeettttt together!

    See my previous post. You can watch the game online tonight. It'd be inhumane to wait until midnight on Monday.
