Ahhhh. Remember last year? Every Texans’ game felt like going to a job you didn’t want to go to. You go home thinking about how you don’t want to go back. You spend your evening looking at the clock and counting when you have to go back. You go to bed having an existential crisis every night, thinking about how what you are doing tomorrow is the last thing you want to do on Earth, and one day you won’t any more time on Earth, yet you spent all that time going there. Then, throughout the weekend, that place is a constant shadow on your back.
I’m already at this point this season. At 0-3, I don’t want to watch Bill O’Brien keep Deshaun Watson in the pocket, fail to use play action, and not scheme to get anyone open. I like Friday. I like Saturday. I don’t like Sunday.
I’ll still be watching them play the Colts on Sunday, though. Hanging out at the house. Maybe I’ll eat a big breakfast. Go for a run. Seize the early morning light. Then game time starts, and I’ll be talking to my friends online discussing what will become such sad, horrible times.
Anyways, those are my plans. What about you? What do you have going on? Are you going to Lucas Oil Stadium? Are you hanging out at your local spot? Is there anything you are cooking up? Have you already started a MDC-esque boycott, waiting for O’Brien to get fired like Joe Marciano?
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.
