Fortunately for all of you, I'm not referring to myself. No, I'm referring to the fact that we are approximately a mere thirty-one (31) hours away from the Texans' first exhibition game of the season. I know, I know. It's just the preseason. And the majority of the projected starters probably won't play after the first quarter:
"Our ones (starters) are going to play close to a quarter, depending on how many snaps they get," coach Gary Kubiak said. "Our 2s are going to play in the second quarter and halfway through the third. Then our 3s will come in, and our 4s will finish."
But still--it's as close to genuine, Texans football (no disrespect at all to the college ranks, as I am eagerly anticipating that season opening) as we're going to see until September 9th. Additionally, it'll give those of us who didn't get a chance to go to training camp our first look at Amobi Okoye, Jacoby Jones, The Schaub, and yes, Matt Turk. The way I see it, that's all the reason I need to glue myself to my recliner at 7 p.m. tomorrow night.
