Default Santa Foster helps his O-line take a load off


Quote:
Houston RB Arian Foster gifted each of his offensive linemen with a Segway personal transporter on Wednesday. The lineman squealed with delight when they discovered their presents, and learned how to ride them with help from Foster, who has had one for a while. “I can’t do anything without them,” Foster said of Houston’s linemen. “It was just my way of giving back to the big fellas.”

Major

More than likely a fail on the writer's part. Yes, I'm sure they were stoked, but "squealing with delight?"

Not so much!!!

Context people, CONTEXT!!!

Default Arian Foster gives Segways to OLine

Quote:
Arian Foster rewarded each of the Houston Texans' offensive lineman with a unique gift for paving the way to his third consecutive 1,000-yard season.

The star running back gifted each of his offensive linemen with a Segway personal transporter on Wednesday.

The linemen screamed with delight when they discovered their presents and learned how to ride them with help from Foster, who has had one for a while.

"I can't do anything without them," Foster said of Houston's linemen. "It was just my way of giving back to the big fellas."

Foster said the Texans' offensive linemen were always getting on his case about him riding his Segway.

"I feel like all of them big hogs up front can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway," Foster said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "Guys like Chris Myers and (Duane) Brown and Wade Smith, they're always getting on me about riding my Segway. 'You can't walk? You're too good to walk?'

"I was like, 'No, man. I would just rather ride wheels.' I saw a little jealousy in their eyes when they were talking about me, so I figured I'd get all the linemen a gift."

Foster, who has 1,313 yards this season, leads the NFL with 14 rushing touchdowns.

Fortunately, Houston is more or less a city without cliffs.
