    Giants 30, Texans 17: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

    So I guess the Texans aren't going undefeated. Damn. Through the first three weeks of the season, it's readily apparent that Bill O'Brien and his staff have made some headway in fixing some of what ailed this team in 2013. However, after Sunday's 30-17 loss to the New York Giants, it's equally appa ... More >>

    NFL Player Ordered to Pay $150,000 Lap Dance Bill to Strip Club

    A story made the rounds last week here locally in Houston about a 32-year-old Houston man who was suing a stripper for thousands of dollars that he reportedly loaned her. Apparently, there was a miscommunication between the two as to whether the cash should have been defined as a handout or defined ... More >>
