Where's Sam?

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.


  1. Very cool!
    Congrats on the great win. I'm a Texans fan as I have loved Gary Kubiak since his days in Denver. When we fired McDaniels (BLECH!!), I was hoping K would be our head coach.
    Speaking of the Broncos... did you see our amazing OT win?!? We were screaming so much, I think we knocked our house off the foundation!!
    Good luck with the Ravens! We're headed to the Patriots... round two of the "Timmy-Tommy Bowl" :D

  2. In the world of the internet that counts... you are famous! Milk your 5 minutes for all they are worth.

    Happy New Year.

  3. Kathy, I was shocked by the way the Denver game ended. Frankly, I had been pulling a bit for the Steelers in hopes that they could then beat New England, moving the AFC championship game to Houston if we can win our next one against Baltimore.

    Now I will be rooting for Denver to beat the Patriots so that we can meet the Broncos here in that game in two weeks. Keep your fingers crossed for both of us.

  4. Famous for five minutes for everyone with a big magnifying glass and a lot of time to kill searching through a crowd of 72,000 people. You have to take what you can get, I suppose...
