Game Of Throws - "Chaos Is A Ladder"

A loosely constructed premise for a post as we try to latch on to the soaring popularity of a certain TV show on HBO.

In the game of throws, you win or you get benched.

"Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."

- Petyr Baelish (watch it here)

Chaos. That's all there is right now in the NFL and none have more of it than your Houston Texans. The old regime was struck down by a conquering invader-- those who survived the invasion got to watch their comrades get axed and replaced. The hero is in exile and no one know who exactly will lead the troops on the field. A fresh regiment of men-at-arms were raised, eager to prove themselves. War is coming!

I'd say that's chaos. But like Baelish noted, it's a ladder, and it's there for the Texans to climb if they have the will to do it. And what's at the end of the ladder? A big, shiny Super Bowl trophy. It's time to get climbing.
