Hey, we're all in this together, remember (#silverandblacklivesmatter)...

8:26 p.m. - Ariana Grande sings the National Anthem. Of the U.S. In Mexico's capital city. Julian Alvarez (uh, no clue guys) does the national anthem of Mexico. Which, if I am not mistaken, is "La Cucaracha."

8:29 p.m. - Interestingly, Los Mexicanos didn't boo the national anthem. And because we have to politicize goddamn everything, the announcer makes a quick quip about Donald Trump, because fuck escaping the gravity of D.C. politics, for even one fucking football game.

8:32 p.m. - Texans get the ball first. They begin at their own 25.
