You know, that Asian bow of his. At first I just thought it was a coincidence, but I noticed he does it e-v-e-r-y single scoring TD. Has an interviewer ever asked why does he this? Does he have an Asian sensei? Are his parents part Asian? Is he paying tribute to earthquake victims? Maybe he likes Japanese anime. Yea, that's gotta be it.

I have watched several interviews with him and he is a unique personality. He fancy's himself a "dandy" ...

Pretty cool dude it seams.

It's called Namaste, an old Indian tradition. Most believe that it means "Good day."

"Namaste" means "hello" or "greetings" with respect, like ni-hao in chinese. :)

It is still an Asian Indian tradition :). Bill Gates gets several "Namaste" greetings when he gets greeted in India at the airports, when he goes there regarding his charity work.

Hawaiian women do the "Namaste" with garlands and luau skirts, I like that too. :)

Because of how much skill it takes to score a TD from 3 yards out untouched :heh:

I kid, I really like Foster, even if I don't think he'd be elite outside of that system.

Fosters into Yoga, & other Eastern Philosophies... Also think he tries to maintain a Vegan Diet... Foster sounds like a cool dude for sure ... Definitely not the norm for the NFL for sure, at least with the Yoga, & Vegan diet thing...

The meaning of Namaste is actually "I salute the divine in you," but it's used more casually in Asia. In Japan, it means thank you for example.

Uh @ Arian Foster. lol

Just kidding. I have a disdain for anyone that comes from an SEC school not named Auburn.

Foster - Check
Stafford - Check
AJ Green - Check
Eli Manning - Check
Peyton Manning - CHECK CHECK CHECK (97 SEC Championship Game still hurts)

lol

Living in Houston I can tell you Foster is a very subdued and serious person. He gives the impression "excitement" meansn waking up in the morning. He is a very professional and smart dresser but not flashy by any means. I get the impression he will pursue a law practice or professors job after football. Either way the guy will succeed not matter what.
