Well, what can I say? The game pretty much went as I thought it would go. Fairly close, but as expected, the Texans’ defense couldn’t stop anyone. When the Texans briefly took a 24-20 lead, it was hard to get too excited considering Vick and the Eagles were about to take the field again.
I’ll probably be kind of scarce for a couple of days, as I’m staying in Philadelphia with family through the weekend – but when I get back I will share my fantastic experience at the Texans/Eagles game. I had a great time, and yes – I caught some hell but for the most part, these supposedly ferocious Eagle fans were, for the most part, a bunch of pussycats.
Honestly, I’ve seen opposing fans in Reliant catch MUCH more hell than I did. But Philly fans are a lot of fun. Their taunts of Matt Turk and Neil Rackers kept me laughing, and they kept their reputation for cheering opposing player injuries by wildly celebrating in our section when Matt Schaub went down right before the end of the first half.
I’ll share much more in a few days, but for now – please keep the conversation going for me as I enjoy a couple of days with family. In short, it was the same old story. The Texans couldn’t get any timely stops on defense, and the offense was inconsistent and often times predictable. Much more to come when I’m able.
