getty images The Houston Texans are sticking with Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams. “Matt gives us our best chance to win,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “It was a tough decision, real tough.” The Texans only have T.J. Yates as their backup and simply feel he does not provide the team with a chance to win. Meanwhile the Houston Police department is denying that there was a group of angry fans outside of Schaub’s house today which resulted in a police call. Contrary to some reports, there was not a group of "angry fans" outside the Schaub residence on Monday.#hounews — houston police (@houstonpolice) October 9, 2013 A family member is said to have seen a male taking photos in the driveway but there is nothing more to the story. Police were not called to the home. No other information to release at this time. #hounews — houston police (@houstonpolice) October 9, 2013 In five games this season Schaub has thrown for 1,366 yards and eight touchdowns but has also thrown nine interceptions. Schaub has thrown a pick-six in each of the Texans last four games.

On this day in 1919, the White Sox threw game eight of the World Series to the Reds with reckless abandon. Chicago's Lefty Williams gave up three runs and four hits before manager Kid Gleason pulled him in favor of Big Bill James*, who allowed an inherited runner to score as well. The Reds would eventually go up 10-1 in the top of the eighth before the White Sox scored four meaningless runs in the bottom of the eighth. With a 10-5 win, the Reds clinched their first ever World Series championship. *See! Those guys in the newspaper were right; Bill James did ruin baseball. On this day in 1924, former Red Jake Daubert died in Cincinnati at the age of 40. On this day in 1963, the Reds bought catcher Joe Campbell from the Houston Colt .45's. Campbell never appeared in a game with Cincinnati. On this day in 1969, former Red Don Hoak died in Pittsburgh, PA at the age of 41. On this day in 2007, the Reds granted free agency to second baseman Mark Bellhorn. On this day in 2012, Homer Bailey struck out ten batters and allowed one run in seven innings against the Giants in game three of the divisional series. Unfortunately, the Reds' offense sputtered and collected only four hits on the night before Buster Posey scored the game-winning run on a Scott Rolen error in the bottom of the tenth. The Giants defeated the Reds, 2-1. Unmitigated Audacity earned the point yesterday. Joey Jay earned the win in the Reds' only victory in the 1961 World Series. With the Reds' World Series championship in 1919, Cincinnati became the eighth major league team to win the World Series. Name the first seven teams to win the World Series. You must name all seven teams to earn the point.

In addition to looking goddamn magnificent whilst standing in pastoral settings, my friends Joe Pug and Vandaveer also make some fine music — and when they switch songs it gets even more delightful. For their Fall 2013 tour together that JUST STARTED, they have each picked a song of the others’ to record for a split single. I am pleased to be able to premiere these songs for you all, to entice you further into their winsome grandeur. STREAM (since Yahoo broke my embedded player) DOWNLOAD Waking Hour (Vandaveer) – Joe Pug Call It What You Will (Joe Pug) – Vandaveer The original Vandaveer song that Joe picked is from their wonderful 2011 record Dig Down Deep, one of my favorites of 2011. The Joe song turned lush by Vandaveer comes from his original debut EP, 2008′s Nation of Heat. I’ve had the privilege of having both of these artists in my chapel sessions and house shows, and I just came across an old interview I did with Joe Pug what feels like 1,000 years ago. It remains one of my favorite interviews I’ve done, because Joe’s brain is amazing. See: We promised too much and we gave it too soon: The Joe Pug Interview (7/10/09). Then go out to one of these shows, and hug them all for me: JOE PUG FALL TOUR 2013 Oct 8 Albuquerque, NM–Low Spirits * Oct 9 Phoenix, AZ–The Rhythm Room * Oct 10 San Diego, CA–The Soda Bar * Oct 11 Los Angeles, CA–The Satellite * Oct 12 San Francisco, CA–Cafe DuNord * Oct 13 Felton, CA–Don Quixote’s * Oct 14 Sacramento, CA–Harlow’s * Oct 16 Eugene, OR–Sam Bond’s Garage * Oct 17 Portland, OR–The Doug Fir * Oct 18 Vancouver, BC–Electric Owl * Oct 19 Seattle, WA–The Crocodile * Oct 20 Bellingham, WA–The Green Frog * Oct 21 Moscow, ID–Mikey’s * Oct 22 Boise, ID–Neurolux * Oct 23 Salt Lake City, UT–The State Room * Oct 25 Denver, CO–The Larimer Lounge * Oct 26 Kansas City, MO–The Record Bar * Nov 5 Milwaukee, WI–Linneman’s Nov 6 Iowa City, IA–Gabe’s # Nov 7 Minneapolis, MN–7th Street Entry # Nov 8 Chicago, IL–Lincoln Hall # Nov 9 Indianapolis, IN–Do317 Lounge # Nov 10 Akron, OH–Musica # Nov 11 Newport, KY–Southgate House # Nov 12 Columbus, OH–Rumba Cafe # Nov 13 Nashville, TN–The Stone Fox # Nov 14 Louisville, KY–Zanzabar # Nov 15 Champaign, IL # Nov 16 St. Louis, MO–The Firebird # Nov 18 Fayetteville, AR–George’s Majestic # Nov 20 Tulsa, OK–The Vanguard # Nov 21 Norman, OK–Opolis # Nov 22 Houston, TX–Fitzgerald’s # Nov 23 Austin, TX–The Parish # * With Vandaveer # With Sera Cahoone [top photo taken by Todd Roeth -- I believe in the orchard outside my house!
