HOUSTON - The sign above Mike Linsky s garage reads: What happens in the garage stays in the garage. In fact, it doesn t always stay there. Sometimes it just comes out a little bit differently.
Well, it looks like we have a Texans car, Linsky said.
It s more like a Texans shrine on wheels, completely covered from front to back with assorted Texans stickers and bling bling, as well as specially fitted flags.
It all started with a roll of Texans duct tape Linsky fashioned into a racing stripe on the hood of his Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
I got a reaction from a Mustang that wanted to race, said Linsky. I rolled down the window and said, It s a hybrid, so that s not going to work, chief, and then I added on from there.
He also added a couple of passengers: the family dog, Suzy and a skeleton named by a fellow Texans fan.
Sam Houston has come out of the grave to watch the Texans have a great season, Linsky said.
Honestly, I think he s crazy, said Linsky s wife, Laura. It s something he s enjoying doing I guess.
He must. This isn t just the car Linsky drives to games. It s the car he drives everywhere.
