Go Texans: Andre Johnson & J.J. Watt Are Rodeo Parade Grand Marshals
Yet another highlight of J.J. Watt's career.
Houston has a "Go Texan" day every year before the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Parade, but this year it should feature an extra "s" -- two Texans will be Grand Marshals for the downtown event.
Andre Johnson and J.J. Watt will be there, the HLSR announced today.
"There is no better way to celebrate the kickoff of the Show than to have two of Houston's very own star athletes leading the way," said HLSR president Skip Wagner. "The show and the Texans share a very special relationship, and to have Andre and J.J. start the parade is definitely a testament to that partnership and each organization's devotion to the city."
Johnson grew up in Miami, so we don't know how familiar with rodeo activity he might be. We just hope he doesn't get injured.
Watt, on the other hand, is a Wisconsin boy (Pewaukee represent!), so it's possible he's had some horse or cow dung on his boots at some point.
The parade is set for Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012, at 10 a.m.
