Houston Texans running back Arian Foster decided to buy each one of the offensive lineman that block for him each and every week a segway, as a way to show his appreciation.
“They all, as a front, can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway,” Foster said.
Foster, the Texans’ All Pro running back, always rides his Segway around Reliant Stadium. He, along with Andre Johnson, Ben Tate, J.J. Watt and the departed Mario Williams, were the originals to ride the Segways.
Now, there are a ton more in the locker room.
“Anytime I give a gift, I always try to give something thoughtful,” Foster said. “A couple of guys like Chris Myers and (Duane) Brown and Wade Smith always getting on me about riding my Segway. ‘You can’t walk? You too good to walk?’ I’m like, ‘nah man, I just like to ride wheels.’ I saw a little big of jealously in their eyes when they were talking about me, so I figured I’d give all the linemen a gift.”
