Arian Foster has a Segway, and he loves it. He loves it so much that he prefers riding his Segway to using his own two feet to walk, which causes a lot of his teammates to get on him about it.
So, he decided to show his love for the Segway brand the best way he knew how recently—by buying every single offensive lineman on the Texans a brand-new Segway for Christmas.
“They all, as a front, can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway,” he said. “Anytime I give a gift, I always try to give something thoughtful. A couple of my 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 bit of jealousy in their eyes when they were talking about me, so I figured I’d give all the lineman a gift.”
And, what a great gift it is. The only problem? It sounds like the Texans might need to put up stop lights in their locker room soon.
Andre Johnson, Ben Tate, J.J. Watt, and Foster already have Segways. And, now, ten offensive lineman have them, too. It sounds like a traffic jam waiting to happen.
