The Texans have always been a high-character organization. So when Hurricane Ike blew threw town, Texans players opted to stay with their families and loved ones rather than leave town to play the Ravens.
Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that the Houston Texans didn’t want to play their Week Two game against the Ravens at a neutral site because they didn’t want to leave their families in the zone of the hurricane damage while they went to another town, such as New Orleans or Atlanta, to play the game.
Personally, I think this speaks a lot to their character. When everything else in their world is swallowed up by playing this game professionally, it's nice to see that this team has their priorities in order.
Everyone at BRB hopes that you and yours made it through Hurricane Ike okay.
