Can you feel it, Texans fans? The tension is palpable. We're about 50 or so hours from the first Texans game of the year! It's a little staggering, but Battle Red Blog has been growing by leaps and bounds the past year. Despite the fact that the team finished with a 2-14 record last year (again), traffic through the website has increased exponentially the past twelve months. That means a lot of new faces, which means there's no better time for another introduction post.

One of my flavor-ite Texans memories was way back during the 2008 season. Matt Schaub and the Texans capped off a thrilling comeback drive with an improbable QB draw from the three-yard line to take the lead with just a few seconds left. Or how about T.J. Yates leading yet another improbable comeback against the Cincinnati Bengals with the AFC South on the line?Or how about the Texans leading a 24-minute (approximately) opening touchdown drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2011? Too many to choose from.
I'm definitely the biggest Texans fan in my family, because football doesn't exactly mean football when we get together, if you know what I mean.
I've been on this Durga-forsaken blog on and off for about five years now, but mostly as a lurker. I've had the pleasure of writing for you fine folks for the past two, and it's actually opened up a few doors for me, so I'm very thankful for the opportunity. Reading BRB became habitual because of MDC's brilliant Two-Day Hangover articles. You might've heard about him yesterday. Stick around BRB if only for these.
Back in September of 2002, I was probably uncomfortably fidgeting on my couch uncomfortably whilst ogling Jennifer Aniston in a rerun of Friends. I was not yet initiated into my hardcore Texans fandom.
