So, it wasn't the prettiest win..but I'll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day. And it was the Texans, for pete's sake! Seriously, we cannot lose to them.
Watching the last half of the game at the Y is an experience. At several points in the final two minutes, you could sense this odd hush coming over the workout area. You'd hear the whir and movement of various machines, but the weights would stop making noise and conversation stopped when the Texas missed their first field goal, when the Titans got theirs and then there were lots of fist pumps in the air when the Texans missed that last field goal to give the Titans the win.
I mean, it's not like we beat Indy or anything like that. But in a season like this, it's nice to know there is one team that we can take beat.
And now, FOX is teasing me, saying that the big A game in the NFC next week is the greatest rivallry in all of pro football, the Washington Redskins vs the Dallas Cowboys. Usually, our FOX affiliate picks up the A game and shows that...so I am hopeful I will get to see my beloved Redskins at home against the team I most love to hate and despise. But knowing how cruel our local FOX station is, the Falcons will be playing some crappy game and we'll get that stupid one instead. If so, rioting in the streets..that'll be me.
