Do you want a sign that real football is on its way? That you can once again properly ignore Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association? Well, you're in luck, because the Houston Texans have announced their themes for the 2013 slate of home games. Let's see what they are.

It's always a nice surprise to see Battle Red Day not be against the Jaguars. It figures that the Texans would make the national television game their Battle Red spotlight. That should really stand out against the blue-clad Colts. I also hope you all can get dates for that Homecoming game against New England.
What about you, BRBers? Are you happy to see the Colts get the Battle Red Game designation? Are you sad that it wasn't reserved for the Patriots or Broncos? Are you heading to the Homecoming game pep rally? Does this even matter to fans as much as the team would like it to?
