Houston has a rich aeronautical history?

The NBA released a photo of the uniforms for the upcoming 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Here’s the photo:


Since the game is being held in Houston, Texas, this year, Adidas designed special uniforms that are supposedly inspired by Houston’s “rich aeronautical history and the speed of the jet planes that dot its skies.”

Whatever. Houston, Texas has a rich aeronautical history like Des Monies, Iowa has a rich maritime history. The only thing dotting the skies in Houston is the air pollution. This is as bad a Texas putting the Space Shuttle on its licence plate.

Cool looking uniforms, stupid premise.

    You’re not a member of the Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society than?

      Nope! It looks from the website, their rich aeronautical history is centered around an old airport. If they want to experience some real aeronautical history, I would encourage them to take a visit to the Antelope Valley in the high desert of southern California.

        I tried searching for some information regarding their supposed rich history and I can’t really find much of anything. Typical big headed Texas attitude I guess, lol.
