Saturday Night's Alright for Commenting: August 1, 2015

Howdy, all. Our favorite team opened training camp this morning, and we're obsessing about it tonight. Talk about it on Battle Red Blog.

Ladies, gents, pandas, and football hooligans, we have Texans football!!!! Finally!

While the rookies reported to the team hotel on July 26th, the vets didn't have to go into the hole until the 31st. Rest assured, though, "Hard Knocks" was hard at work, filming everything, so we can get the entire experience of leaving the creature comforts of your own home to live in a hotel for a month with a bunch of hairy, sweaty men and a host of camera crew, waking up before sunrise to spend a day honing your craft before crawling into bed after sundown, only to do it again the next day in the hopes of making the final roster in early September, or show enough to make this practice squad (or, at least another team's).

But this is S.N.O.T., and we're not confined to obsessing about NFL football here. Instead, we can rejoice in Diller's Revenge (seriously, that file photo does not do justice to how scary and ugly they really are--had several dig up my plants to get to the roots for water during the drought and they are hideous), question the impact of the B1G's new scheduling requirements (and coaches' resistance to the change), note the risks of too much cinnamon, and take pleasure in the fact that we're not on the Star Wars set.

We can also discuss movies, TV shows, music, books, and pretty much everything else (provided we're still civil to one another).

In music this week, I leave you with the criminally-underrated Leon Bridges, discovered by me after a conversation with friends about how I DGAF about Drake, Meek Mill, Jeezy, and some other such unknown rap/hip hop artists, and said I prefer soul, rhythm & blues, blues, jazz, and oldies.

With that, your weekly S.N.O.T. is open! Comment away!!!
