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 or afternoon 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.
We wrote about a Houston Dynamo fan who got tased at BBVA Compass Stadium, and one reader said the support group El Batallon should be blamed for their rowdy antics.
That invoked an impassioned response.
Uh..."alcohol-fueled behavior"? "Riots"? What fantasy world are you living in "Ole4"?? First of all smoke bombs and lewd remarks are an issue for you? Then go to church or something, NOT football. Clearly it's not for you. Second of all, you don't know a GOD DAMNED THING. Alex did NOTHING and is one of the nicest people I know. "Dynamo Management" did NOTHING to control ANYONE and isn't even acknowledging the incident. And an embarrassment to WHO? Jackass...
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
