The 12 Days of Christmas, Houston Texans Style on 12/12/12

Well, Monday night wasn't very much fun. Patriots 42, Texans 14.

As bad as it must have been for all of you who had to watch the Texans lay an egg on the big stage from the comfort of your living rooms, I had to go through the pain of the live Chowd audience, complete with all of their Marty's and Sully's, screaming in my ear, telling me how overrated our squad is and poking fun at the Texans players' goofy letterman jackets.

So how do we rejuvenate before the Colts come to town looking for blood this weekend? By getting into the holiday spirit, of course!

When God bestowed upon mankind the baby Jesus, I'm sure the video below is what he had in mind -- the 12 days of Christmas Texans style! Full disclosure, I am partially (about 80 percent) responsible for the lyrics so there's part of me that feels like one of those Nashville songwriters watching his creation executed by other performers, only instead of Alan Jackson or Reba McIntyre doing the singing, it's a bunch of random people at the Texans Grille watching the Texans defeat the Titans a couple weeks ago.

So here you go. Merry Christmas, Houston, and to all a good night!

In case you need a transcript of the lyrics to follow along, here they are:

12 Titans crying... 11 Bulls parading... 10 Fans-a-freaking... 9 Andre catches... 8 O-line pancakes... 7 Picks by Manning... 6 Ninjas sacking... 5 NAMASTES.... 4 J.J. Swatts... 3 Playoff wins... 2 OT scares... ...and a Super Bowl on February 3!

Props to all of the good sports who took part in this video. I don't know that any of you will be using this as an American Idol audition any time soon, but we appreciate you belting out the words for us!
