This time every year, in the whirlpool-and-icepack days that follow the NFL's opening week, there's one thought that crosses the minds of millions of fans. It's a thought that consists of three distinct questions, which are usually asked in order. The first: "Who is that guy?" The second: "Why isn't he on my fantasy team?" And the third: "Do the league's draftniks have any idea what they're doing?" This year's source of bewilderment is running back Arian Foster of the Houston Texans. As an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee, Mr. Foster ran for a forehead-slapping 231 yards and scored three touchdowns Sunday to bring the Texans a 34-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The only player who has topped this mark in the first week of the season is Hall-of-Famer O.J. Simpson, who had 250 yards for the Buffalo Bills in their opening game in 1973. &&& It's too early to anoint the guy as the NFL's next big thing, of course. While he impressed scouts with his intelligence and patience, his performance may have had more to do with the ability of the Texans' offensive line to blast huge holes in the Colts' suspect run defense. On 13 of Mr. Foster's carries for at least five yards Sunday he was untouched until getting tackled. But if it's scrappiness, doggedness, a colorful personality and some real underdog bondafides that you like in your first-week phenomenons, Mr. Foster has all you need. There's the mysterious New-Age first name: His father, Carl, says it's short for Aquarian, refering to the water bearer bringing in the Age of Aquarius that, he says, "we're living in." There's a tattoo on his arm that reads: "Against All Odds." He has an obsession with writing poetry about the moon and the stars and he recently named his one-year-old daughter Zeniah Egypt, a consequence of a fascination with ancient Egyptian culture he says he developed from watching the Discovery Channel. &&& http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100...2307803304.html?mod=WSJ_LifeStyle_Lifestyle_6 %%% Yea they cover things besides finance and economics in the WSJ, including sports. Anyway I'm sure most of you don't have a hard-copy/print sub of the Journal like I do, so you can't enjoy this huge picture of our guy in this global publication. It's back in their Personal Journal Section, page D2. But I've copied/pasted some of the story. Congrats to Arian for making it to the Big-Time ! And it's sure sweet for him and the Texans to get some well deserved recognition.
