Houston Texans fans turned ugly when they cheered Texans quarterback Matt Schaub going down with an injury in their loss to the St. Louis Rams. Things are going so bad in Houston, fans are reminiscing about the good old days of the 2013 Astros season.

Loud mouths

Kansas City Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium set a Guinness World Record for highest decibel level of sound during a win over the Oakland Raiders. They broke the official record set in Seattle earlier this season and matched the unofficial record by Houston when Schaub went down.

Da Prez

Legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka told an audience at a speaking event that he regrets not running for the 2004 Illinois Senate seat against Barack Obama and perhaps derailing Obama's rise to the presidency. Just think, under other circumstances, Mike Singletary would be Secretary of Defense today.

Big 8

The Southeastern Conference put a record eight teams into the college football top 25 this week. That will be helpful to figure out which teams Notre Dame does not want to play in a bowl game this year.

No one like A-Rod

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Alex Rodriguez is irreplaceable and it would hurt the Yankees if A-Rod loses his appeal on his 211-game suspension.

In a related story, Brian Cashman doesn't want to be named in future Rodriguez lawsuits.

Do you know the way?

A federal judge dismissed antitrust claims filed by the city of San Jose against Major League Baseball in its bid to move the Oakland A's to San Jose. If the people of San Jose don't acquire the A's, it could damage community morale, until they remember they live in San Jose.

Good to have connections

Among the 13 members of the first College Football Playoff selection committee are Oliver Luck and Archie Manning, fathers of Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning. The committee wanted some connections to teams that can actually beat Alabama.

Fewer chances to cheat

Michael Waltrip Racing will apparently run only two cars in NASCAR next season because of the loss of NAPA as a sponsor. I guess that's what you call NAPA No Way No How.
