Anyone who is a big enough sports fan has certain rituals that he/she believes will alter the outcome of a game. These superstitions are silly, but are they really worse than most fan behavior? Actually, yes, very much so, in the case of this Texans fan who pledged to the football gods that he would drink his own urine if they allowed Houston to erase a 21-7 halftime deficit.

And they did. So he did.

While his extreme fandom is laudable, this gesture seems excessive for a Week 1 game against the Chargers. He probably should have saved it for the playoffs. [Deadspin]
