    At first, I thought that this was a hoax site reporting a fake story:[][Link]



    Eugene Levy To Play In Preseason Game For The Houston Texans



    But, as it turns out, it appears to be legitimate (although I have not seen it reported locally anywhere): [Corroborating Link]

    After some consideration, since this was about a "Houston Texans player," I decided to post it in this forum.:shrug:

    ???? on the bolded part.

    Your links aren't working, so I'm still questioning the reliability of this (especially give the Carr jersey).

    Sorry, I corrected the links..........and despite the Carr comment and the Kubiak mispells, it seems to be legitimate.

    Your link is just a blog. A blog that doesn't link to any story. Anybody can write anything in a blog.

    I'm guessing it is meant to be a satirical comment on allowing Billy Crystal to do spring training.

    First impressions are usually the best.

    The thought of the Texans getting together to watch a Olsen Twins movie is funny. But if you have to watch a Eugene Levy film, I recommend Splash.

    Maybe this should be moved to the really bad Canadian humor forum?

    Y'all are missing the boat. In this film, the twins are going to play...twins. Who'd a thunk it?

    Absolutely. By a mile. Best in Show is the best movie of its kind if you like improvisational humor. It has a lot of the same stars from Spinal Tapp...so it follows that same sort of humor.

    This is a huge joke, IMO. Kubiak is NOT the sort of guy who is going to allow Eugene Levy to play for extended times "until he gets injured," which would happen on THE first point of contact he'd encounter.

    I think the blog entry was satirical, on the heels of the Billy Crystal experiment. Blogger paired Eugene and the Texans to make a statement of both of those being geeks/unathletic.

    I enjoyed the giggle, though, CND.

    I believe when I see it, and I won't ever see it.


    Unless he is going to be the ball boy. He couldn't even hold the ball for KB on an extra point. :spit:

    If there's ever a movie made about the Texans, Levy could play DC. They have about the same ability at QB. Since Carr will be out of the league by then, maybe he could be Levy's stunt double.

    Well we did have David Carr behind center for 5 years. Levy could easily do what Carr did.
