Top o’ the morning to you, Texans fans.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day. Consequently, this fine Saturday will be glorious. It’s science.
But can today, tremendous as it shall surely be, hold a candle to yesterday’s magnificence? Yes, the Texas Longhorns lost their first round NCAA Tournament game yesterday in agonizing fashion, and that undeniably disappointed.
Yet yesterday had far more dizzying highs than crushing lows.
Your Houston Texans signed an actual special teams playmaker.
Your Houston Astros signed Jose Altuve to a five-year extension that doesn’t go into effect until 2020.
To paraphrase Jim Valvano, that’s a heck of a day.
Can today be better? Why not? There’s only one way to find out.
