The Astros win the World Series Championship after forever in Pergatory and just when the Texans look like they are turning the corner again, Deshaun Watson tears his ACL in practice today.  My football season is a wreck...

Your problem is you seem to be Texas azz kisser.  I never, ever under any circumstances root for anyone or any team that represents that arm pit of a state.  I am still mad at the Mexicans for losing that war.

Wow, that is too bad, I hate it worse for the young guys like him that are just scratching the surface of what they could be. I hope he recovers fully, and goes on to be the star that he can be.

It was a very entertaining World Series though, and I'm glad Houston won.

Hey dumbass... I grew up in Galveston and lived nearly my entire life in Texas.  My folks were born and raised in Arkansas and had uncles who played college football there .  Have numerous relatives who graduated from UA and I may be the most rabid Hog fan you'll have ever met.  I graduated from the University of Texas and wore my hog hat to every single damn football game they played... on the other hand, some of the finest people I've ever known were born and raised here.  I have many friends who love travelling to and vacationing in Arkansas and take their families there every year.  So, you must not have spent much time along the Texas gulf coast or in the Houston area or Austin or San Antonio cause if you did, you wouldn't spew such crap.  The state of Texas is more than a friggin' longhorn...

A former Razorback (Dallas Keuchel) won the world series with the Astros.

I always enjoy a temperate, thoughtful, reasonable discussion.

I loathe the evil baby-puke orange empire, but, having lived in DFW since the early 90s, there is much to like about the state.  Can some Texans be obnoxious and annoying? Certainly, but, as I've been reminded just in the last few minutes, so can some Arkansans.

The Ark v. Tex war was a long time ago - I went through it and, at the time, was certainly an anti-Texas Hog fan - can't say I was the same way about every other sports team that was domiciled in Texas and never understood the mindset that felt that way.

Anyway, after the demise of the SWC and the consequent demise of the yearly Ark/Tex showdown, I lost a lot of interest in Texas - didn't and don't really care one way or another.  However, I've spent a lot of time in Texas (my wife being from there) and truly enjoy visiting (it's one of those places that I like to visit but wouldn't want to live there), have some family down there and realize there are some really neat places there.

I was pulling for the Astros from the beginning and don't understand anyone in this part of the country who wouldn't be the same against a team from the left coast - now, maybe if they'd been playing either Kansas City or St Louis (they probably wouldn't be able to do so because of the leagues but I don't know enough about baseball to know that) I would probably have been rooting for KC or StL - but they weren't so I'm really glad Houston won.

The heck with the flag. The gal looks quite lovely.

And it is silly to hate on Texas. It is a huge, diverse and productive state.

Man, I love the State of Texas. So many cool things. Spent quite a bit of time in the Rio Grande Valley. That being said, I despise UT. Bunch of arrogant jerks. But you gotta respect the pride those folks take in their state (see Houston).

Here is the mindset for you.  Same reason people in Kansas City [royals} hate the people in St. Louis [Cardinals].  Cardinal fans think they are God's gift to baseball.  They are the chosen one.  No one knows more about baseball than Cardinal fans.  They are arrogant and snobbish. [I am sure there are exceptions].
Now substitute Texas for St. Louis and Longhorns for Cardinals.  There is you mindset.

Even Conservatives would be sensitive to the broad strokes you are painting with.

Been to any rallies lately? Any ethnic group you hate? How about religions, any that you detest?
