Last week, a child at the school where a friend of mine works won a "Meet a Texan" contest that the Texans had. As a result, they got to spend the day with a Texan. The Texan which they got to spend the day with was Dominique Barber. Dominique came to school, where he answered questions like "Do you cut peoples hair?" "What is your favorite haircut to give people?" (because you know, he's a barber) completely unrelated to football along with questions like "What position do you play?" about football in the most patient way possible. The kids loved him. He spent a good bit of the day hanging out with the first graders in their classroom (some of whom were special education students) and really impressed everyone there. I'm sure it's an experience those kids will always remember and treasure, I certainly know at their age I would have.
We criticize the Texans a good bit around here, but one thing I think we can all agree on is that they're an asset to our community, regardless of their play. They've always been a very classy organization, and that's something that makes me proud to be a fan. Anyway, I just thought I'd share.
