The Houston Texans honored late President George H.W. Bush with a tribute video and a moment of silence ahead of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.


Bush died on Friday night at the age of 94. Following his presidency, Bush and his late wife Barbara settled in Houston where they spent the last quarter century of their lives together. (RELATED: Here Were George H.W. Bush’s Final Words To His Family)

The 41st president was known for being a big sports fan and especially loved his Houston Texans and Texas A&M Aggies. In fact, Bush’s presidential library is located in College Station on the Texas A&M University campus.


During the 2018 NCAA basketball tournament, Bush predicted the Aggies to win the national championship, while engaging in some playful banter with fellow former President Barack Obama.


Bush will lie in state in the United States Capitol next week, before being buried at Texas A&M.

The thoughts and prayers of everybody at The Smoke Room are with the Bush family at this time.
