Back when I was a wee lil Balls, one of the first songs I learned in English was this one:
The second was probably this one:
Even though I was a wee lil Steelers fan back then, I really liked the Houston Oilers and Earl Campbell and Dan Pastorini. Those were some great teams.
At the same time, probably to spite me or to be the opposite of me, my brother was a Cowboys fan. He had a Roger Staubach action figure and everything.
So, our loyalties within the Great State of Texas were divided. Much like many families in Texas, I assume. Yes, some are Cowboys families and others are Houston families, but I’m betting a 40 oz steak that asshole brothers pulled for the other team just to spite someone.
Oh, those were the days!
Nowadays, the Oilers are technically in Nashville, the Cowboys suck balls, Houston is more known for the 500, and the word “Texans” is being forced to apply to some imaginary team placed in Houston.
Without further ado, TO THE GAME:
The Cowboys still have not given Dak anyone to throw to and poor Dez is still sitting at home wondering why he’s being blackballed even though he never kneeled for the anthem.
The Houston franchise has a great QB in Watson and… that’s about it. Their defense is… improving. It’s almost like the two teams are mirror images of each other.
I KNOW no one in The Great State Of Texas likes this state of affairs.
The game is
in apparently NOT in Dallas, so the ladies in attendance will have a bit more less makeup and bigger frizzier hair. Nothing else separates these teams.
If you’re wanting to place a bet, you might as well decide on which classic film you prefer and bet accordingly:
Enjoy the game!
Unless you want to watch the Doyers take on the Braves and really I wouldn’t blame you. At least you could avoid Collinsworth…
Or, you could do like me and continue watching the Psych marathon on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel. One of the Despereaux episodes is on!
