Drew Brees, Al Michaels, and SNF.

I'll start with how much I love SNF......just an ingenious idea on the flex game. I can't begin to say how much that idea rocks. Even in a blowout the quality of the teams involved kept me interested.

I've always loved Al Michaels.....sure he's not as sharp as he once was, but when you hear his voice you KNOW it's a big game. Also, he seems to be turning into a crotchety old man which is very entertaining....

After coming back from halftime and Dallas setting off fireworks when the team came back on the field....

"It is the stupidest thing in sports....fireworks in a stadium. ESPECIALLY indoors!"- AM
AA agrees. Saw a game in St. Louis two years ago, and sitting in the upper deck when that happens is not fun. Other Michaels highlights.....

After the ref announced to the stadium after a penalty that Dallas was "three inches short"...
"How do you know!?!?!"- AM
I'm paraphrasing here....
"Texans fans are like What the Hell were we thinking drafting Mario Williams"- AM....talking about Reggie Bush after his TD.
And finally Drew Brees......the kid is amazing. In college I knew a chic from Texas that had once dated him in highschool. When I asked her how she got past that giant birthmark on his face her reply was "He threw for 3,500 yards and 31 TDs as a Senior. I could care less about a furry mole on his face."

Fun Stat: If Brees has three more 300+ yard games he will finish second all-time to Dan Marino in yardage for a season. If he has three 350+ yard games he will pass him.

Geaux Saints!

(P.S.- I don't have a photo of it, but Brees has had the birthmark removed and it's just a scar. If only he could have surgery on the relationship with his mom.)

I have to agree with AM about the halftime shows. It is a disaster waiting to happen. Someday they will catch a dome on fire or blow up a few cheerleaders and there will be hell to pay.

The Texans are taking a real beating. Passing on both Vince Young and Reggie Bush. How embarrassing.

And you're right about SNF. The entire production starting with Pink's song all the way to the end is just awesome. And I really hate to admit that.

Seriously, Texans fans don't give a flying f*** about Reggie Bush. It's all about them passing on Vince Young. If this season turns out to be the pinnacle of VY's career and Bush and Matt Leinart turn into Pro Bowlers, Texans fans will STILL be bitter over VY.

Seriously, no one here cares about Reggie. The national media should do some f***ing research and quit playing up that angle. It's all about VY.

And no, AA, I'm not saying you didn't do your research. I'm bagging on Patrick & Michaels.

Sorry last comment was not in english....

No worries Dan. Feel free to call me out though....I'm fair game.

Good points. Young is from Houston and played for Texas....that should have been reason enough.
