You may have heard this phrase before: "Once A Texan, always a Texan". While all states have a storied past, I think Texans, as a group, are the most zealous in protecting their state's heritage. Just ask one. So you can image the disdain of most Texans when it was announced that the Houston "Texans" would stay in their locker room during the playing of our National Anthem. I posted on Facebook a request to conduct a survey to determine if this NFL team should be "ordered" by its fan base to rename the team. For some reason it was taken down within hours.
Why all the clamor you ask? Perhaps this eloquent letter, written by a true Texan, will help you understand our feelings on this matter.
