Houston Sports Personified

J.J. Watt tweeted this picture out yesterday. If you were born within the last 10 years, you might not know that he's standing next to Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon.
He's the man that helped pull the city from the black hole created by the 92-93 Oilers choking away a massive lead against the Buffalo Bills.
Such courtside greatness wasn't enough for the Rockets, though, as they lost last night against the Portland Trail Blazers in an overtime thriller.

I found this comment while thumbing through the BRB archives the other day. Mr. b0wse pretty much nailed what the 2013 season and 2014 offseason had in store for us.

This team did indeed "need a reboot."

The lady got me these as a gift, and I thought I'd share. I'm thinking there's a strong bourbon-drinker/Texans fan demographic here on Battle Red Blog.

Check them out on Amazon.

Andre Johnson's Career Yardage - A Pie Chart Perspective

Ljt3yal

This week in unnecessary pie charts, we take a look at Andre Johnson's career receiving numbers compared to those of the next nine WRs that have played for the Houston Texans.

Like a Thanksgiving plate dominated by an oversized turkey leg, the chart above is hilariously unbalanced. We're all painfully familiar with the precipitous drop in quality after Andre, but it's staggering to see him account for as many yards by himself as almost everyone else on the list.

Hopefully we'll see DeAndre Hopkins distinguish himself from the pack of near-anonymous receivers accompanying him here. Click here for the full picture.

Texans are now following Johnny Manziel on Twitter

Johnny_manziel___nfl_draft__14___houston_texans_by_hesslerstudios-d743q8f

I am not sure if it means anything but the Houston Texans are now following Johnny Manziel on Twitter. I don't think they are following any other players in this years draft, including Bridgewater or Clowney. Maybe I am reading too much into it but this has to be a good thing for people who want the Texans to take Manziel. Here is a link to the article: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000325366/article/houston-texans-follow-johnny-manziel-on-twitter

Found this via the Houston Texans Instagram page,

Jonathan Garcia is a speed skater representing the US of A in the Sochi Olympics. He's also a Houston product and an apparent Texans fan.

He's competing in the 1000m today. Good luck, buddy. Read more about Johnathan here.
