I'd like to think that I admit it when I'm wrong. I don't, but I'd like to think so. My standard excuse is, "If I was wrong, it was because key information was withheld."
Here, though, that's not the case.
I stated last month that if the Houston Texans could manage to host a home game this season, we could discuss the comparative rebuilding prowess of Texas and Louisiana. Well, they did.
But they cheated.
Officials expect that all eight of Houston's home games this season will be played with the roof open.I realize I was not specific when I threw out my challenge.
Hell, when you manage to host a home football game before the end of the season, we can talk about who's better in a crisis.They managed to do that and I will admit that they dealt with their football problem better than we did. One can only imagine what the Saints 05-06 season would have been like if Superdome officials had been as forward thinking as the folks at Reliant Park. "Fuck it," they would have said. "We'll just play with the son-of-a-bitch broken."
Texas: If it ain't fixed, leave it broke.
Though the Texans played well, they blew a 17 point lead in the last four minutes.
They choked, because that's what happens to dirty, sneaky cheaters.
