Go Texans! (Houston Texans!)

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.

Glory Bound: Hail To the Saints!

You goin’ to the big New Orleans Saints victory parade in the Crescent City tonight?  Me neither.  But if you want to celebrate the Saints’ victory in the Super Bowl, you can play “Glory Bound,” the unofficial fight song that helped propel the team to victory.  Well, maybe Drew Brees helped a little.  Who Dat?

The New Orleans Saints are going to the Super Bowl, and it’s going to be a great game.  The Saints are gonna have to step it up if they hope to beat the Peyton Manning-Colts juggernaut, but I have a feeling they will … kick it up a notch, that is.

How they can they help not doing that, with all the fight songs there are to cheer on the Saints?  Follow the link to the New Orleans Times Picayune, where they’ve collected all of the Saints fight songs.  You are in for a shock – there’s about 50 of them!
