Hey coach, stay away from Notre Dame!

Not much to talk about today. It’s been a day off that feels as if “off” wasn’t anywhere near. Therefore, a few notes about football.

Yes, football. The Texans came close to getting their second loss of the season playing the one-win Jacksonville Jaguars. The Texans stayed down then came back only to win in the stupid overtime. I don’t care much for the present-day overtime rules in pro or college or high school football. Why not just stop and let all the players dance a boogaloo or something. I still don’t care much for football players dancing, especially when they dance for doing something routine that is their job, say for making a tackle or sacking a quarterback. Houston finally won but goldarn it, the Texans should have wasted Jacksonville.

I also don’t care much for receivers who go apeshit when they drop a pass and start pointing at the defensive back so the Zebra will notice and possibly call interference. Most of the time, it just makes the players look as if they are a bunch of whiners, not to mention bald-face liars.

Likewise, I don’t think players should pour a bucket of Gatorade on the coach when the team wins a big game. Isn’t that what the teams are there to accomplish, winning the game? Let’s try a little inverse. Suppose the team loses the big one. What ‘say the team should pour a bucket full of hydrochloric acid on the coach?  Or perhaps throw a vat full o’ hot lead on Coach as did Quasimodo spilled molten lead on those from the cheap seats in the Victor Hugo classic “The Hunchback of Notre Dame?” Fun fact: Hunchback was originally a fullback.

One thing I will say about the last Texans game I watched. That is Andre Johnson is beginning to look like he is about 10 years younger. Man, if that cat had real teams to play with and could have had quarterbacks standing upright over all these years to throw him passes, there would be no telling what the Texans could have done. But that didn’t happen so, almost 10 years later, the team is clicking. Let’s just hope it keeps on truckin’.

Well, that is all I have to say about that, friends. So enjoy.
