On the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina destroying New Orleans and the day the Texans play the Saints in the 2015 NFL preseason, we learn that Houston Texans owner Bob McNair was instrumental in helping the city recover after the storm.

One of the good ones.

Yesterday was the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans. Without getting political in any way, shape, or form, Houstonians surely remember that storm and its aftermath. What you may not know, however, is how Houston Texans owner Bob McNair assisted New Orleans in its recovery and in ensuring the Saints would stay in New Orleans.

Bob McNair has never really done anything but give Texans fans reasons to be proud that he's the team's owner ever since the NFL announced it was coming back to Houston in October of 1999. This is just one more reason to count ourselves lucky to support an organization that counts McNair as its leader.
