Houston Texans defensive end Christian Covington was repping his hometown with pride on Sunday.
The 24-year-old Vancouver native made a fashion statement before his team’s game in Week 3 against the New York Giants. No, he didn’t show up with a big hat, a gold chain, or a LeBron James short-suit.
He rolled in wearing a Daniel Sedin Canucks jersey.
Not only is that something you don’t often see on NFL Sunday, it might be the only Daniel Sedin jersey in circulation in the city of Houston.
