Yeah, not news - but hey, why not share?
...Besides, you guys are the ones to most appreciate it!
At the end of our trip to the mall tonight, my wife is SUPER excited and begs me to look at the gift she just bought me. Knowing that unwrapping gifts is a HUGE deal to her, I restrain myself. I do so for the next 10 minutes until we get out to the car. The whole time she continues to beg me to see what she got me. "It's the coolest thing ever!"
Finally I break down after she threatens the ultimate punishment to a husband ... withholding you know what.
So I look...
SHE GOT ME A SIGNED STEVE MCNAIR PICTURE!! Framed, Authenticated, and as a Houston Oiler! Wooohoooo!
It's going up right next to my signed (in person) Moon picture - though the McNair has a WAY badass-er frame.
On a side note, she bought this as I was taking WAY too long in the Cowboys store (live in Dallas) trying to find the ultimate gag-gift for one of my best friends. After asking the lady, she was able to find in the back a 2-XL pink women's Romo jersey! It was on sale, so I just had to do it. Long-story short, this friend has drafted Romo in the 1st round of our fantasy draft for the past four years. The kicker was when he had the 1st overall pick the year before Romo went off. He's accepted every last Romo-sexual joke we've laid into him (sometimes going with it a bit too far for our comfort) - so he'll definitely wear it to our next draft. Yeah, $40 is a pricey for a gag-gift, but I've known him for 20 years.
While I have your attention, anyone know a good place to order some T-Rac plushes? A couple of my friends have young kids and I want to persuade them to the Titans (kids love animals - when i was younger, i wanted Bengals stuff instead of "dumb ol' oil derricks").
