Programming note: The incomparable Jerome Solomon will be filling in for me on The Blitz today. I am closing on a new place and will be completely out of pocket. So if I do not respond to tweets or emails immediately, I am apologizing in advance.
On with today’s update…
This is where we get a little interactive. What would you like to see on the site during Super Bowl week?
Here is what we have planned: A guide to all things Houston for out of towners. Where to go downtown including parking. A list of the best bars and restaurants downtown, links to daily interviews on the show and any news that pops up.
What more would you like to see? Please comment below. We hope Super Bowl week is fun for everyone visiting and for those of us who live here and we want the site to give you everything you want. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
.Rockets stumble: The Rockets were trounced in Milwaukee last night. In the fourth quarter, they struggled with bad turnovers, almost all of them outside the top of the key, leading to easy opportunities the other way. It was a poor effort, and the Rockets have had a few of those lately.
Slim pickings? If you are betting on SHRP today, you can find our selections right here.
Put them together and you have Christmas? Baylor and UH are lighting up the skies with their stadiums. Supply your own punch lines….
Local ties: The Patriots have no shortage of players with ties to the Houston area. I’m biased, but my favorite is Elandon Roberts, who was a beast for the 13-1 Cougars who beat Florida State in the Peach Bowl.
Florida, of course: So you are taking a nice little vacation in Florida. You decide to take a boat ride. And then an alligator decides to join you. Yeah, this did not work out.
Don’t mess with a polar bear, either: A Barstoolsports.com writer had an interesting interaction with one. It did not go well. (Contains adult language).
And finally, celebrities are weird: Selena Gomez has an odd crush on Barney the Dinosaur. “I love you, you love me, it’s bizarre sexuality…”
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”
