Yeah, but how much did Schaub throw away?
 
2013-12-11 10:14:10 AM
Did the kid later intercept gifts from Schaub and return them for a pick six?

We need more athletes like this. I know there are a few, but more would be nice

The Texans should sign the kids to contracts. Not like they could do worse

I think you meant only Houston Texans highlight of the season, subby.

Seventh annual. Awesome.

It is so depressing that this man's career has been hamstrung by inneptitude all around him. Glad he got to be in the playoffs last year

Andre Johnson does this every year.  Wide receivers have a reputation for being divas and assholes, but the best receivers from the past decade (Dre, Megatron & Fitzgerald) are quiet, classy guys.

The local Meijer by our house (it's like a Super WalMart, only family owned, a higher quality of products, and without all the baggage associated with WalMart) did something like this last night.  Local police and firefighters collected donations and they took about 20 kids in the foster system to Meijer and they were able to get clothes and toys for Christmas.  It was super awesome.  I mean, it wasn't "meet an NFL superstar and fill a cart with toys" awesome but it was "here's $200 worth of toys and clothes" awesome.

This.  Dre, especially, is a helluva guy.

By and large, the Texans are comprised of good guys (none better than Johnson). They just can't put it together on the field this year.

An Atari Flashback? Someone needs to have a talk with this young-un. The big Lego set was thinking right, but you need to learn to recognize the QVC crap and head for the quality, like Transformers, Hot Wheels tracks, and of course XBox One and PS4's.

I have a flashback on my Christmas list this year.
But then again I' m old.

Unfortunately for the kids he had to take them back, the kids not the gifts.
 
2013-12-11 12:19:17 PM
Well that's a much nicer holiday gift than forcing the kids to watch a Texans game.

Personally, I'd just be happy with about two hours alone with the two cheerleaders.  Probably not in a Toys 'R' Us, though.

Should I win the MegaMillions...

I'm so doing this.  And so many other things.

But anonymously.

True enough.  I'd try and figure out creative ways to do it to make kids believe in magic, Santa, what have you....

\also be building the mother of all band practice facilities

Eh...maybe I'm just a tiny bit selfish, but I'd be trying to take over the world from my secret volcano lair.

ONE of the things I'd do - eyeglass / eye health charities.  There's a lot of folks out there who simply can't afford yearly exams and "decent looking" glasses.

Is it shallow?  I don't know.  But I see a lot of men, women, and kids walking around the Walmart with the biggest non-hipster-trend glasses.  Guess I believe it's because they can't afford anything better.

That REALLY sounds shallow.  Sheesh.

Think of it this way, you can do it all from the secret lair, but if you do all this nice stuff, let it go on for years, then drop that it is  you doing it, how many folks will start following what you do, listening to you, doing what you want.

They are too busy forcing rookies to pay 30k dinner tabs, as god intended...

Don't the Lions Clubs (not the football Lions...) do the eyeglasses thing?

I think I'd still prefer a mind-control beam.  Or some sort of doomsday device.

I believe so.  Helping them out with their cause has definitely crossed my radar.

Whoa, someone needs to tell those cheerleaders not to wear their stage makeup during promotional events
