We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Our Sean Pendergast, like every other Houstonian with a pulse, had some questions for Texans coach Gary Kubiak. Oene of them involved that fact that Pendergast, while closing down a Denver bar at 2 a.m., saw Frank Bush doing the same thing.

Bush the coordinator for the Texans' truly pathetic defense -- wasn't drunk or swinging from chandeliers or anything, but then again he wasn't back in the hotel reviewing game film either.

One of our commenters was inspired by the movies:

This sums up my thoughts on Bush out drinking....

Glengarry Glen Ross: Drinking till 2AM is for Closers.

Blake: Let's talk about something important. Put. That. cocktail. Down. Cocktails are for winners only. You think I'm fucking with you? I am not fucking with you. I'm here from downtown. I'm here from Mitch and Murray. And I'm here on a mission of mercy. Your name's Frank Bush? You call yourself a coach you son of a bitch?

Frank Bush: I don't gotta sit here and listen to this shit.

Blake: You certainly don't pal, 'cause the good news is - you're fired. Have I got your attention now? Good. "Get the picture? You laughing now? You got players. Bob and Rick paid good money to get these players to win games. You can't shutdown Tim Fucking Tebow or Kerry Collins? You can't shutdown shit. You ARE shit. Hit the bricks pal, and beat it 'cause you are going OUT.

Blake: To answer you question, pal, why am I here? I came here because Mitch and Murray asked me to. They asked me for a favor. I said the real favor, follow my advice and fire your fucking ass because a loser is a loser. -

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
