Herman named marshal for the Houston Rodeo parade and gives flashbacks to the best tv show in Houston history.

Houston Cougars football coach Tom Herman could probably run for mayor in a few years once UH alum Sylvester Turner’s term is up and win in a landslide. In the meantime, college football’s King of the Trill will serve as the marshal for the Downtown Rodeo Parade as part of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

If you think it’s incongruous that someone with a grill from Paul Wall would turn around and lead the Houston Rodeo parade, then you don’t know Houston. Here’s our former mayor Annise Parker, the first openly lesbian mayor of a major us city, riding in a slab with swangaz in the Houston Art Car Parade a few years ago:

You can keep Austin “weird”… Houston will just keep being Houston. All of this gives me flashbacks of perhaps the greatest portrayal of Houston life in history, the documentary tv show, “Houston Knights”:

If television execs have any sense they’ll hop on the phone with Coach Herman and cast him on a remake of Houston Knights… filming only during the offseason of course!
