It’s Super Bowl week Day 4, and what an amazing day it promises to be. First off, I will be at the Sprint store at 59 and Bissonet this morning from 10-11 with Texans cornerback Kevin Johnson. Please drop by. Also, tonight is the Big Texas Party, which is going to be completely badass. Still a few straggling tickets left at thebigtexasparty.com. Dak Prescott and Jadeveon Clowney are among the stars expected to be there.
One of the best things about the Super Bowl is the prop bets. Whether you play them or are simply entertained by them, our good friends at mybookie have you covered. They have been updating them and adding throughout the week. (click the link, then click props).
Some of my favorites:
Will the game be decided by exactly three points? Yes is plus 450.
Total pass completions both teams (over 53).
Both teams have the lead in the first half. (plus 115).
They literally have props on everything so check them out. Promo code Fred if you sign up.
Oh, and don’t forget our downtown guide to places to hang out this weekend.
Texans news: There was no shortage of Texans news on Wednesday. Bob McNair stated they would be in the market for a quarterback (although not necessarily in the draft despite the hedline, but that is a possibility). He also said they wanted to extend DeAndre Hopkins. J.J. Watt met with the media and said he has been cleared for football activity. And finally, A.J. Bouye appeared on the show yesterday. You can find it hour 1 of the podcast. Reading between the lines, it does not sound like he will be back.
What’s next? Gary Kubiak discussed what might come next in the wake of his retirement.
Rockets up next: The Rockets have back to back home games tonight and Friday. If you are coming downtown for the game, DO NOT PARK DOWNTOWN. You will overpay if you even find a place. Park down the train line and take the MetroRail to Bell station. If you are coming for Super Bowl events, take it to Main Street Square. Parking and traffic is an absolute nightmare. Same goes for the UFC fights on Saturday.
On this we can agree: Love him, hate him, fear him, at least Donald Trump has found something we call all agree on in his opinions of Roger Goodell. Honestly they could be twins, but hey, I am with the Prez on this one.
Daily snake update: OK, so it is not every day we have a snake update. But there sure are a lot of the on this site. This woman got a snake stuck in her ear. Really. One look at this chick and you will realize she had it coming.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
This is kind of in honor of Trump, Goodell, and of course pythons…
“Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. Oh, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you. Oh but if I went ’round sayin’ I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away.”
— Dennis from Monty Python’s The Holy Grail
