They shall be my finest athletes, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of football forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great uniforms shall I clad them and with the mightiest sneakers will they be fitted. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and teamwork so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Texas. They are my Tornadoes and they shall know no fear.

I'd love to see a movie about this, but I can just imagine that conversation.
Screenwriter: "Hey, check this out, let's do a movie about this."
Producer: "Nah, fark that. Hey, let's reboot the Hulk again!"
