I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that your Houston Texans are 2-7, losers of seven (7!) straight. Even in the darkest days of the Dom Capers-Charley Casserly Era, the Texans never lost seven games in a row in a single season. We are witnessing Texans history. The bandwagon has emptied, and only those pure of heart, strong of spirit, and short on other things to do remain. To those stalwart men and women, I ask: What are your plans for watching Texans-Raiders, and quite possibly the eighth loss in a row, on Sunday?
Will you be at Reliant Stadium, purchasing $7.50 beer after $7.50 beer to dull the pain of a season lost?
Or will you be at home, drinking considerably cheaper alcohol to dull the pain of a season lost?
Perhaps you'll be at your favorite bar, drinking reasonably priced booze to dull the pain of a season lost.
Maybe you won't be drinking at all, watching the Texans play the Raiders with a clear mind and a clean liver, in which case you are made of infinitely stronger stuff than I. Still, the season's lost, so it's totally cool if you want to have a drink or two. You've earned it.
Whatever your plans, let us know in the Comments. If you're still trying to figure out what you're going to do, or if you're a stranger in a strange land looking for somewhere to catch the game, pose any queries here; someone might have a suggestion for you. Similarly, if you've got a worthy spot staked out somewhere and want to clue fellow Texans fans in to it, please divulge that information in the Comments as well.
