The Green Bay Packers played the Houston Texans on Sunday night in what was announced as the Texans' Breast Cancer Awareness game. This worthy cause was promoted by all manner of pink items on display throughout the stadium.
By the end of the evening, the fans of the formerly undefeated Texans wanted to reach for something pink themselves. A bottle of Pepto-Bismol might soothe the distress created by the upset of an embarrassing 42-24 loss to the Packers.
It would take an FBI investigation and an electron microscope to identify the winners in this massacre. In a game that threatens to redefine their season, the very definition of “winner” will have to be adjusted to fit the evidence in this case.
