Expect Merrill Hodge to call in sick tomorrow.
For those who watched MNF, there were so many moments that made Longhorn fans smile. You were reminded why the CBS affiliate in Austin used to choose to air Titans games rather than Texans games when given the choice. Who knows if Vince will ever be in a Super Bowl, but we do know that every time he plays the Texans IN HOUSTON, that might as well be his Super Bowl. The icing on the cake tonight was to see the other Longhorns perform well and seemingly elevate their games and feed off of Vince. (How did UT send a FULLBACK to the NFL again?) ESPN's closing shot was VY hugging Studdard (a Texan) at midfield.
I'm happy to root for the Texans 14 games per season. Tonight after the game I was curious how the SB Nation blogs for the Titans (musiccitymiracles.com) and the Texans (battleredblog.com) were reacting to the outcome. It amazed me how many members on the Texans blog spoke negatively of VY and when comparing the two blogs, MCM mirrored BON in a way, in that their equivalent of Peter reached out to the Texans blog earlier this week, offering to answer any questions they may have about all things Titans this season. I feel sorry for any BON members who are diehard Texans fans, because the SB Nation blog available to you (BRB) is a pretty poor option. BRB mirrors more of an Aggie approach. The thread which began as an olive branch of sorts was capped off with this Texans fan's statement:
Do you find...
the symmetry between what the Texans can do to the Titans’ season and what Steve McNair’s girlfriend did to his nap frighteningly similar?
Notice it received 7 recs and has yet to be moderated. In fact, the site's moderator endorses the statement.
Be thankful for what we have here at BON. And that VY is not a Texan.
There's plenty more. Here's the whole thread:
