ESPN – Arian Foster rewarded each of the Houston Texans’ offensive linemen with a unique gift for paving the way to his third consecutive 1,000-yard season.The star running back presented each with a Segway personal transporter on Wednesday.

The linemen screamed with delight when they discovered their new toys, and learned how to ride them with help from Foster, who has had one for a while.

“I can’t do anything without them,” Foster said of Houston’s linemen. “It was just my way of giving back to the big fellas.”

Pretty sure it’s basically the standard in the NFL for the quarterback to take his offensive line out to dinner at the end of the season. However, I haven’t heard many running back’s doing something similar.

The guy just gets it. Linemen put up with some torture each Sunday and their knees have to carry 300+ pounds of human flesh and be athletic.

This raises the obvious question: what if there was a Segway football league? Of course it would probably die out faster than the XFL but shit, I’d like to see it. “Oh but how would they control the Segway AND hold/catch the ball?” Shut up, let me dream.

Walking is a waste of time…Segways are the best gift, well done Arian.

Side note – If they rock their letterman jackets while on their Segways, I will never respect this team…ever.
