Chili Bowl

What does the NFL preseason teach us? Not much. That's especially true this year, when we know the Cowboys are stacked in pretty much every position and are the odds-on favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. But still, this is Texas, meaning that if you're like me, you've been counting the days until football season kicks off. Really, it's too bad Houston fields such a sorry-ass team, because it would be nice if there were some bad-blood rivalry thing going on between the Texans and the Cowboys, just to add some intrigue to the Friday home game at 7 p.m. Plan on watching it at home (CBS), unless you've already got tickets, because like every other game this season, this sucker's sold out.
