Busch League?

Apparently ESPN thinks the Texans are so bad, they've begun reporting their news stories within their "Minor League" page. Also of note, the Texans' franchise record holder in sacks has 15.5, the NFL record is held by Michael Strahan with 22.5, IN A SEASON. In fact, combine Derrick Thomas' two highest sack total games, and you get to 13. The rookie record for a season? 14.5 by Javon Kearse. Yet somehow, the most sacks ever accumulated by a single Texan, over 5 seasons, is 15.5, maybe they should have gone with Peppers over Carr?

The Texans also hold the NFL record for least offensive yards gained by a winning team in a single game, 47.

Why is this "Busch" league, again?

Ryan said...

Bush league is a general term used to describe an action or thing as being amateur, inferior or crude. In a literal sense, it refers to a low quality minor-league in baseball not associated with any of the major league teams. The term originated from the state of minor-league fields that often were ringed with shrubs and bushes.

Thanks again Wikipedia

My question was not what bush league was, it was what the Houston Texans had to do with the St. Louis Cardinals

Ryan said...

um, the answer would be nothing?

I just spelled Busch wrong, like the league, it should be bush apparently, where did you get the Cardinals from? Busch Stadium? The "bush leagues" were leagues played in bad stadiums, not affiliated with NL or AL teams, with bushes around them, not necessarily Busch Stadium. I don't know why ESPN reported the story as they did, that's why its funny...
