    The father, once a football man, believed in the power of the stars and the sky. This is still the age of Aquarius, he told the mother when their second son was about to be born. The name Arian spoke to him. He looked it up. It meant water-bearer, holder of knowledge.

    Carl Foster was glad. His child would have a name of great importance. “It will guide him through life,” he said.

    Then Arian Foster(notes) grew up to write poetry and make music, putting them together in a form of spoken-word melody he hates to call rap because, as he says, “It sounds too clichéd.” He went to college at Tennessee and studied philosophy. He asked questions. He challenged. He was, at 24, everything his parents hoped he could become.

    I'm pretty sure his mom was on TTalk soon after he signed with the Texans. Is she still around?

    Sounds like a pretty darn fine family to me.

    I'm glad we've lost one role model in KB, and discovered a new one in Arian.
