This is not exactly a "bookish" post, but it explains why a whole weekend has gone by without me posting on Book Chase. Most of you know that the NFL playoffs are in full-swing as of this weekend - and I confess to watching too many hours of football, both live and on television.
Before a new work week begins, I just wanted to check in and post these two pictures of where I spent a large portion of Saturday afternoon and early evening: Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans who defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10 in the first round of playoff games.
Click on the photos for a larger image. This is a screenshot taken off the Houston Texans website. I'm standing to the left of the goal posts, some 25 minutes before kickoff.
This is a zoomed in version of the same screenshot. I'm the guy fooling with his telephone (just above that number 13 jersey at the bottom of the picture). There's a little Texan's logo on my image to mark the spot. To my left are my daughter's father-in-law, my grandson, and my son-in-law.
