We must wait a week for college football bowl season to arrive in the form of the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. In the meantime, I felt the return of our old friend the Saturday Night Open Thread ("S.N.O.T." to its friends) was in order. There's plenty to talk about.
Thus, let us use this thread to talk Houston Texans, football (professional, college, or high school), or (gasp!) things that don't involve football on this chilly December evening. If you want to talk 2014 NFL Draft, go for it. If you want to share your recipe for meatball soup, I'm all ears. If you want to discuss the apparent continued employment of Mack Brown, I'm your huckleberry. Or perhaps you want to discuss the pros (because there are no cons) to the excellent fare at Antica Osteria. This thread is your oyster. Talk about whatever's on your mind.
It's an open forum, though the community guidelines are always in effect, so use your good judgment in what you post for public consumption. Have at it.
