Didn't see this posted anywhere.

I haven't laughed like this in a long time.

I can't see Pitts playing the Oboe. From this day forth he will be know as Mr. Oboe.

"You play football?"
"No."
"Why not?"
"Personal reasons."

Lauren, I know you weren't making fun of Pitts, I was just using that line to inform everyone about the story below.

I don't know how many people know the real story about Chester Pitts, but I will tell the people who don't.

When E. Salaam went into that store, Pitts was 17 years old and just became a father. He needed to get insurance for his child and he didn't believe in government assistance. So he researched and found out that if he got a job at the grocery store it would be the quickest way for him to get insurance for his baby since it was a union job.

So his father, who is a police officer, called the manager of the store and who was a friend of Pitts dad and got Pitts into an interview and the rest is history.

We should be proud of the players we have on our team. I read all the time that we wished we had some players on this team that had additude and some of ya'll wouldn't care if they got into trouble from time to time as long as we won. I'll take 50 guys like Chester Pitts before I would want one, Vick or Pacman Jones.

Uber funny, but a bit too long. Congrats, both guys have great personalities.

I loved the "back ground Texans"

Luckily, I had some extra time. Give your self plenty of time to watch, but do watch it - very funny.

Loved seeing their personalities. As the mother of an o-lineman, I could feel Chester's pain when he was talking about how o-linemen only get recognized when something bad happens.

They must have found the most oversized guy they could find to play Mario.

How about the way they had Pitts dressed up for the store scene. And his description of why the left side of his face was his best side. LOL

I loved the part when Salaam was saying that Pitts looked like a wet sack of garbage and then Pitts comes over to say how good he looked and that is the way he really looked.

Man, Mario is a fat ass!

Sheesh, if Chester and Ephraim are this funny in person and Gibbs doesn't like his linemen talking with the media, I wonder who's gonna win out?
