On Friday’s show: We preview the Texans’ next playoff matchup, which is Saturday afternoon against the Baltimore Ravens.

Also this hour: With the Texans back in the playoffs, the Astros being perennial postseason contenders, and the UH Cougars men’s basketball team the Rockets and the Dynamo all on the upswing, the Houston sports scene is having a moment. But is it the start of a new "golden age" of Houston sports? We talk it over.

Then, from HISD Superintendent Mike Miles regretting calling off school due to the freezing weather, to a local meteorologist gaining acclaim for injecting song lyrics into his forecasts, to a Hempstead Pizza Hut going retro, we contemplate The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.

And we hear from the Houston-based bands The Mathletes and Swimwear Department, who are performing next week at White Oak Music Hall. It's The Mathletes' first gig in 12 years.
