The story about angry fans outside Texans quarterback Matt Schaub’s house was a good one, a perfect narrative around which to comment on the importance of sports in our lives and fan behavior in general.
The only problem: It wasn’t true.
The Houston Police Department is sending out word that the story is not as it was first conveyed.
“Contrary to some reports, there was not a group of ‘angry fans’ outside the Schaub residence on Monday,” the department said in a statement sent out via Twitter. “A family member reported seeing a suspicious male in the driveway of the residence taking pictures. Police were not called to the home. No other information to release at this time.”
