Vote for Kris to get the Superbowl commercial ad. If one Texan deserves it for his charity work, it's him.

Ah, if you click "Round one" after the splash, it's one of the winners. :O

Very good story, if you ask me.

I voted for Kris Brown.

That one was awesome.

It is also an illustration of how it is cool to send words of encouragement to players on the team, especially those players who don't receive much mail.

They read those things.

In the Texans locker room, they can't miss where the mail is--it is between the player's lounge and the cafeteria.

"Dead-end job, no aspirations, $6.25 was just going to get it done forever," deadpans Pitts. "You know what; it was a good thing that in, what was it? The seventh round someone decided to call you."

"Wow!" says Salaam. "I see how it is."

The good natured ribbing between the left side of the Texans' offensive line set the tone for the 10 hours of shooting the two were put through a couple weeks ago as they shot footage of an afro-wearing Pitts taking Salaam's groceries to his car, walking onto the football team before we fast forward ten years to when the two are teammates for the first time in the NFL.

Although the players were told to act natural in front of the camera, it was difficult to make the home locker room at the Rose Bowl feel like the one at Reliant Stadium, with extras walking around as Matt Schaub and Mario Williams. "The Mario Williams is about 40 and weighs about 390 pounds," says Salaam when he sees him. "That's funny."

Salaam was later sprayed with water to serve as sweat after a game while Pitts had dirt meticulously placed on his pants. "I don't sweat this much during a game," says Salaam. "It's seriously cold in here. We weren't swimming we were playing football."

"This is the first time I've ever had dirt choreographed on me," says Pitts. "And my pants don't ever get this dirty."

While a few liberties may have been taken in the shooting of the commercial, much like Salaam's telling of the story, the message remained the same, even if they would have liked to have scripted a better ending to their season.

"From bagging my groceries to playing with me in the NFL," Salaam said of Pitts. "And now we're in the Super Bowl...well, sort of."

I am so excited for this. How cool that our two guys won. I read in the paper that it was going to be run in the beginning of the 4th quarter, if I remember correctly.

I can't wait to see it.
