Houston Texans News

Some Texans Fan Is About To Have The Best, Day, Ever.

Unless he or she is fat and out of shape, of course.

Which, in a city like Houston, is always a strong possibility.

J.J. What a guy.


Vonta Still Deciding.

Though the Miami Dolphins reportedly remain the frontrunner for former Texans fullback Vonta Leach's services, the free agent/Houston fan favorite is taking his time before making a decision. Still a chance, I suppose.


Around The NFL

R.I.P., Awesome Browns Fan Guy.

It's a shame I couldn't have known Scott E. Entsminger during his life, because he sounds like The Man. In case you missed it, here is an excerpt from Entsminger's obituary, published in the July 7 issue of The Columbus Dispatch:

He was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band. A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder, he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team. He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.

Entsminger's favorite player was Lou Groza. A Browns spokesman has said the team plans to present his widow with a #76 Groza jersey today, with Entsminger's last name stitched on the back.


Why Are People Still Buying Aaron Hernandez Jerseys On eBay?

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says the team lost $250,000 on the much-publicized Aaron Hernandez jersey swap over the weekend. And yet, people are still buying up Hernandez jerseys on eBay like there is no tomorrow.

Guys. It's not like we're dealing with O.J. Simpson here. Hernandez had a few good seasons and wasn't even the best tight end on his own team. And never appeared in any of the Naked Gun movies, either.

And yet someone is willing to pay over $250 for this. Over $85 for this. Over $50 for this. Over $120 for this. And $350 for this one!
