Houston Texans Getting a Gift From the Tennessee Titans in Zach Mettenberger

The Texans need something to help right the ship. After getting out to a 3-1 record Houston has lost the last three to fall to 3-4--exactly where people expected them to be. So now the question becomes whether they are going to fall and become the bottom dweller people expected or right the ship and get back on track.

Thanks to the Tennessee Titans decision to start rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger this week it could very well be the latter.

WATCH: San Francisco Giants Pitcher Tim Lincecum Had a Little Trouble Eating in the Dugout

Oh that Timmy Lincecum. He's not the lights out stud pitcher that he once was, but he can still get the job done (two K's in 1 2/3 innings of work in Game Two). No matter who well he is pitching there is one thing that will likely forever remain true.

That boy is one goofy son of a gun.

What's Cooler Than Cool? Hunter Pence is! [GIF]

I cannot lie to y'all. If I have any reason to believe that a 90+ mph baseball might strike me in the head I am going to lose a lot more than my helmet, my eyes are going to be blinking a million miles a minutes, and my hair is not going to have nearly as much bounce to it.

But not Hunter Pence. The man is cooler than cool.

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco Makes World Series History With Lead-Off Home Run [VIDEO]

After tearing up Kansas City in Game One the Giants would like nothing more than to rip the Royals again in their house before heading back to the City by the Bay. It certainly looked promising for the G-Men when Gregor Blanco hit a lead-off home run to give the Giants an early 1-0 lead.

As it turns out it wasn't just any old home run though.



What in the Heck is Wrong With Some of These Kansas City Royals Fans? [PHOTO]

During Game One of the World Series we had a guy paying big bucks to take what could not be a comfortable nap during the game. During Game Two we have a guy reading the newspaper.

What the ****?

PHOTO: What the Heck is David Ortiz Wearing on His Feet?

Often times during the World Series the network will tab a popular player from another team to join the broadcast crew. When this happens it is not unusual for said player to show off an 'interesting' sense of style. This year's player--David Ortiz, aka Big Papi--is no different.

Just check out the man's shoes.

Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is Not Who We Thought He Was Going to Be

When the Houston Texans signed journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick fans of the team everywhere let out a collective groan. With the exception of one really good season in Buffalo he--well, he wasn't that good. He was good enough to be a back-up maybe, but if he was your starting quarterback you better have a solid defense and a good running game.

Opinions were pretty low of the bearded Ivy League graduate, and while he has not done a lot to make them better he really hasn't been that bad.

It May Cost All West Virginia Students Money if The Football Team Keeps Winning (and fans celebrating)

Anyone associated with West Virginia University has to be proud to have that relationship right about now. Students, faculty, alumni, admin workers, etc. are all probably on Cloud Nine after a dominate win over the Baylor Bears Saturday. However, at the same time it's kind of a bummer.

So much damage was done in the post-game celebration riots the school is tossing around all sort of ideas on how to handle future celebrations--and student are not going to like any of them.
