    I've heard he is healthy and feeling fine.

    Also ran across this silly tidbit: Texans FanHouse: Mario Williams Owns a Burnt-Orange Lamborghini.

    Pretty random. Though didn't I recall some AP story about Williams sporting a grill at a Houston nightclub? That can't be a good look.

    Somebody once tried to sell me a powder blue car by calling it "Bluebonnet blue." It was pukey looking and they were trying to get it off the lot.

    I don't even like to RENT a burnt orange car.

    Don't care for renting maroon colored cars either.

    If I'm crazy enough to spend that sort of coin, it is going to be some damn fine color. Shaq's silver one is pretty handsome.

    It is a very traditional Lambo color and has nothing to do with burnt orange or UT.

    I'd take in it a heartbeat, even if it was pink! That's just a damn fine car right there, regardless of color.

    Good to hear that Mario is healthy at this point, too. Hopefully 2007 will be a monster year for him, because that could only mean good things for the Texans.

    Classic.

    I don't care if orange is a classic color for a Lamborghini or not. I ain't driving no orange or yellow sports car. If I have stupid money to spend on a car, I'm not buying those goofy colors.

    Shaq's silver one was really fine looking though. I didn't include the picks but you can find them on getty images.

    Orange is an evil color for a car (any car, "sports" or otherwise) but yellow is in fact a fine color for some cars. The classic yellow and black Mustang cannot be overlooked and certain Corvettes are damned fine in yellow. The Lotus Elise/Exige looks like it was made for yellow (and even manages to look halfway cool in orange though I still wouldn't want one that color)

    Not all sports cars can pull it off. Most of the Italian cars look like crap in yellow IMO. No Porsche should ever be painted yellow. It's a violation of some post WWII convention I believe to do so. Japanese sports cars of any make look bad in yellow as well.

    Go with taupe, they say it is a very soothing color.

    It wasn't a Plymouth Road Runner was it? I sold one years ago, and I've never seen another car that color on a car before or since. VERY easy to spot in a parking lot.
