So on the radio this morning John Lopez and Mark Vandameer talked about the nickname "House of Pain" and how they got it. The story goes that a player (who was big into martial arts and went to a dojo) said "Welcome to the House of Pain" at the beginning of the game.

I drew a connection because Cush trains in MMA and how cool it would be for one of the players, or him, to say "Welcome to the Octagon!"

What do yall think?

(I know, I know. There is the rule that fans cant nickname the team, players, or field.)

"Welcome to the Octagon!"

I heard that too on 610. I'm not that thrilled about the one suggested but I agree it would be cool if something naturally spawned as far as a bad ass nickname.

:fans:

I think that would only apply if our stadium was in an octagon shape.

"Welcome to the house of the defense that gives up a ton of passing yards!"

Meh, doesn't quite have that catchiness to it. I'll work on it.

Man, I dig that. Rolls right off the tongue!

I can see it now.....

Gameday at Reliant. Roof closed... stadium lights turned down. GNR's "Welcome to the Jungle" starts pumping through the PA system.

Then Kubes, mic'd up and wearing a big black cape, runs to the 50 yard line. All while carrying a flaming trident. He spikes the trident into the turf and yells "Welcome to the Archimedean Spiral!" at the opposing sideline. After an extended glare at the visiting team's players he stomps back to our sidelines.

All this is followed, of course, by the singing of the national anthem. Oh, and Toro riding a zip line.

*note to self: send this suggestion to Texans FO

A defense doesn't deserve a name until it is good. Our pass defense is dead last. The only name we deserve right now is Porous

Our defense's nickname should be the "Our Offense Scores A Bunch Of Points" defense.

I was referring to the whole Mad Max genre.

Maybe we could get Kubiak to wear a lot of leather and get a dog to follow him around. I wonder if Fetch Monster is still available.

OHHHHHH MAN! We could get Cushing to be this guy:

Anyone see the actual movie The Octagon? Made in 1980, starred Chuck Norris fighting a ton of random ninjas. Antonio Smith has probably seen this movie quite a few times. Its one of those movies that's bad enough to be good.
