Houston Texans and Hurricane Heroes
October 4, 2008

The Houston Texans will take the field at Reliant Stadium this Sunday for the first time since Hurricane Ike caused damage to the retractable roof.

Football fans will have plenty of reason to cheer,  even if the team never scores a touchdown.

Harris County Judge Ed Emmett,  Mayor Bill White and first Lady Andrea White, have been invited to serve as “Honorary Captains” during the pre-game coin toss.

During halftime  Judge Emmet will also help pay tribute to six Hurricane Ike recovery workers, including a volunteer, a Harris County sheriff’s deputy, and an electrical line worker.

The volunteers and workers are the real heroes of the Hurricane’s aftermath.

They will be recognized for their dedication and service to the county’s disaster recovery efforts.

2 on the Beat heard earlier this  week that Governor Rick Perry would also attend the game, but so far there hasn’t been any confirmation that he will be at Reliant on Sunday.
