The Atlantic Takes On Fan Grief Through Texans

The deeper an individual sinks into the anger stage, sadly, the less rational the arguments become. Like this one idiot fan who stood suddenly and screamed at the screen, "What kind of freaking stupid name for a football team is 'Houston Texans,' anyway? Anyone who lives in Houston is, by definition, a Texan! That's like calling your football team the 'Pensacola Floridians' or 'Laramie, Wyomingites.' Geez! Man, that is a stupid name for a football team."

Okay. Truthfully? That idiot fan was me. No one is immune to the Five Stages, people.

Your team was the original Texans. But you're right, it is a sort of stupid name. Don't blame me, I voted for Apollos.

PS: True misery is only measured by the amount of time you have to watch a Frank Bush defense, so you've got a ways to go before you can convince me of your pain.
