Texans fan buys Matt Schaub jersey to burn it in Reliant Stadium parking lot

For most fans, replica team jerseys are signs of long-time franchise affiliation, or tokens of cherished memories. And then there's this guy, who bought a Matt Schaub replica jersey in the Reliant Stadium parking lot after the Houston Texans lost a 23-20 overtime backbreaker to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The fan purchased the jersey for $200 and, perhaps inspired by Schaub's pick-six to Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, tried to torch it with his own lighter. (Warning -- there is some slightly NSFW language in certain parts of this video.)

That didn't work so well -- it just melted the jersey a bit -- so the fan and a group of other tailgaters introduced lighter fluid into the process. Hey -- if it worked for Jimi Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival, why not? At that point, the poor little jersey burned up pretty good and disintegrated into nothingness.

There is no word on whether the Texans are considering doing something similar with the part of their playbook that had Schaub throwing at a weird angle to perhaps the NFL's best cornerback.
