The Hits Just Keep on Coming…

For those of you actually interested in watching real football (i.e. not the Texans), I’ve got some bad news for you: This weekend’s showdown of the century featuring undefeated New England and Indianapolis won’t be broadcast here in Houston. That’s right, while the rest of the country enjoys the biggest game of the season, we’ll be stuck watching the Texans and Raiders blaspheme the game of football. Anyone who recalls last year’s Texans-Raiders tilt knows what I’m talking about.

So if you don’t want to get stuck watching that abomination and you don’t have NFL Sunday Ticket, you’d best start making plans to grab a seat at your favorite sports bar. – Jason Friedman
