When Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy wrote a column yesterday about how happy the Patriots are to be playing the Texans next weekend, he probably had a hunch that he'd be giving Houston some bulletin board material. But, he definitely didn't know that his words would be featured in Arian Foster's Twitter avatar this week.

In the piece that Shaughnessy penned, he basically gave the Texans no chance of beating the Pats on Sunday. "Could this get any easier?" he asked. "I mean, seriously? The planets are aligned and the tomato cans are in place. The fraudulent Houston Texans are the only team standing between the New England Patriots and a trip to the AFC Championship Game. All the Patriots have to do is beat the terrible Texans."

Obviously, Foster didn't like that. But, rather than respond to it, he simply turned it into his new Twitter avi and kept it moving. Check out Foster's new avi in the thumbs gallery. Is it Sunday yet?
