Today is my last day with the Houston Texans. Itís been a great ride.
I arrived as an intern out of college in 2007. It was three days after my final summer-school class at the University of Southern California. I thought I would be here for six months. I ended up staying for six years.
I didnít know much about the Texans in 2007. I grew up in Washington State, Hawaii and Mississippi, and the Texans were five years old and had never posted a winning record. I knew them best as the quasi-expansion team that passed on possibly the best player my alma mater had ever produced, Reggie Bush, with the top pick of the 2006 NFL Draft in favor of Mario Williams.
Wasn't he in charge of the official message board also?
