Andre Johnson hopes to be a big factor against the Ravens.
UPDATED – With more video and MP3 goodness!
Are you ready for some football – playoff style? We in Houston sure are: our hometown team the Texans made history this year by not only achieving the playoffs for the first time in their 10 years as a franchise, but they also won this first-ever playoff game.
So now the H-Town boys are gonna face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and of course the winner of that game will go on to play for the AFC Championship and the right to go to the Super Bowl.
Tim Tebow and the Broncos may have the Lord on their side, but the Texans have some talented musicians in their corner. And we’re not talking about country hat-hack Clay Walker – we mean serious rappers like Paul Wall, Slim Thug and Chamillionaire. Here you go, have a little taste of this:
If the Geto Boys were still around, everyone in Baltimore would be really frightened. Ah well. Here’s another one, I honestly don’t know who the hell created this but the video is WAY better than the music.
This one is called the “Texans Red White and Blue Song” and from the looks of it, it’s officially sanctioned by the team. But we could be wrong.
No music to speak of here … just cheerleaders!
Until 1996, Houston’s football team was the Oilers. Here’s a taste of that freakin’ Oilers fight song.
And this one is done by George Kovacik and Jeff Balke of Orange Is In, this blog’s house band.
