Oh Maria, the years, the years, the years go by. Four years ago, the Texans played the Cowboys in Dallas. It was one of my favorite games ever. Arian Foster could still glide, stutter, stop, and roll like downhill tumbling water over rocks and flood pinned logs. Andre Johnson was catching passes and still wearing the correct uniform. Tony Romo felt J.J. Watt’s hot breath on his neck, ducked, and found Terrance Williams in the end zone. In overtime, Dez Bryant caught an uncatchable pass over Johnathan Joseph down the sideline. The Cowboys won. Those funny Houston folks who wore Ebola outfits must have felt really dumb walking out of the stadium.
That was four years ago. Sunday is a new day (or night). To enjoy the newest version of this “rivalry,” I’ll be driving down I-35 from Dallas after seeing The National, and then stopping at a Cowboys fan’s house in New Braunfels to see Houston and Dallas duke it out with Chris Collinsworth providing the soundtrack to their lives. Woo! Can’t wait.
Anyways, those are my plans. What about you? What do you have going on? Are you going going to see this cousin kissing football game in person at NRG Stadium? Will you be capping off a beautiful couch-stuck day with Texans-Cowboys? Or are you still pissed about Houston’s playcalling and will be watching the DVR instead?
Whatever your plans, let us know in the Comments. If you’re still trying to figure out what you’re going to do, or if you’ll be 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.
