From what my Twitter and Facebook feeds told me when I woke up this morning, it was a nailbiter of a game last night when the Houston Texans played the San Diego Chargers in the first match-up of the season.

Today, loyal Texans fans are getting their rewards in at least two ways: lording it over all the non-believers (once again, according to my clogged up social media streams) and free snacks from local businesses.

Here's where to get your free "The Texans Won, Holy Crap!" stuff today from those Texans-supporting businesses:

Goro & Gun

The downtown ramen shop/watering hole is selling Texas beers for 50 percent off all day. "Tomorrow you may get a free Cherry limeade @sonicdrive_in," Goro & Gun owner Joshua Martinez wrote last night on Twitter. "We will be doing 1/2 priced Texas brews for the win. Way To Go Texans!"

Sonic Drive-In

For the duration of the season, participating Sonic Drive-Ins will be giving away one free 20-ounce Texans Slush per customer the Tuesday after a Texans win. Wondering what a Texans Slush is? Us too: it's apparently a cranberry-cherry blend in Texans Battle Red.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Today only, buy one cupcake at Sprinkles and get one free when you whisper "touchdown" at the register. That is not at all creepy for the person behind the counter, I'm sure.

Crave Cupcakes

The Houston-based cupcakery is giving away free cupcakes of its own today between 4 and 6 p.m. with the purchase of a drink (and a limit of one cupcake per customer).
