Default Welcome to the OCTAGON!

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.)

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.

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

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
