Colleen O'Brien: "It's Our Normal"

ESPN got an interview with Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien and his wife Colleen that every fan, Texans or not, should watch.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

As fans, it's extraordinarily easy to forget that the teams we so passionately follow are comprised of and led by human beings who have lives away from the field. Sometimes, it's good to be reminded that athletes and coaches deal with things considerably more important than what we witness for a few hours on a given day.  Actually, I'll take it a step further:  Sometimes, it's good for all of us to remember there are things considerably more important than sports, no matter how much we love them.

Your Houston Texans have lost three very tough games in a row. Bill O'Brien has taken some heat. The video below may give you a more informed perspective on O'Brien and his life away from the football field.  Even if you're not interested in knowing anything about the head coach of the Texans that doesn't involve Houston's win-loss record, I highly recommend you take five minutes to watch it.
