As a native Houstonian, it's hard to even think about football right now. I may be in New York, but my whole family is facing down Hurricane Ike so my mind is elsewhere. I'm sure plenty of you all are going through the same thing, especially if you live in East Texas. For those of you in the storm's path, please be safe and know that the eyes of Texas and the Burnt Orange Nation are upon you. We're watching, hoping, and praying for all of you. For anyone with access to a computer, consider this your Hurricane Ike Open thread. Updates, well-wishes, pictures, general animosity leveled at an act of nature, cleverly re-worded 1950s political slogans, whatever.
For those of us lucky enough to be able to think about things other than Ike this weekend, we will likely have a Saturday games open thread up at some point.
Stay safe, everyone.
