Survive and advance. That's the name of the game. None of us are happy that the Texans blew their chance at a bye and homefield advantage, yet here we sit. Win and move on. Lose and go home. As bummed as you might be about the Texans losing three of their last four regular season contests, I trust that you'll find a new level of sadness should their season end tomorrow afternoon. Furthermore, I trust that your disappointment over the Texans being the No. 3 seed in the AFC will dissipate, even if only slightly so, should they triumph over the Bengals at Reliant Stadium tomorrow. No matter your feelings, you'll be watching intently. I ask you...where will you be watching Texans-Bengals?
Will you be part of what I hope is a rowdy crowd at Reliant Stadium?
Will you be watching at home, overreacting to every snap as though THAT SINGLE PLAY IS THE REASON THE TEXANS ARE GOING TO (WIN/LOSE)?
Will you be among fellow fanatics at a bar, yelling incoherently at the television and quite possibly needing to take out a second mortgage to pay your tab at the end of the night?
Or will you be at a watch party with friends at someone else's house, completely ignoring everyone who tries to converse with you from 3:30 p.m. CST on?
Whatever your plans for the first game of the NFL playoffs, 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.
