I Think I Think Peter King Hates Us
Peter King? Texans
fans are not passionate about their team? Really.
fans hail from the great football state of Texas. No, we don’t
care much for girls field hockey and lattes here. We care for Friday

as ever. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, and
the great fans of the Houston Texans are as strong as they come.
