  • In 1961, the Dallas Texans finished second in the AFL West division to San Diego, who lost the 1961 AFL championship to the Houston Oilers.
  • In 1962, the Dallas Texans beat the Houston Oilers for the AFL title, then moved to Kansas City to become the modern-day Chiefs.
  • In 2002, the Houston Texans name returned to the NFL when the city was awarded a new team (the Oilers left town in 1996, becoming the Tennessee Titans).
  • In 2011, the Houston Texans won their first AFC South division title with a 10-6 record, but did not win the actual AFC.

Keep all of these things in mind as you enjoy the Old Navy shirt below:

Kent State sophomore linebacker Andre Parker showed great hands, speed and agility in scooping up a fumbled punt return during his team's opener Thursday.

Just one problem: He did it all running the wrong direction.

After Kent State punted to visiting Towson and a member of the return team touched the pigskin, Parker quickly grabbed the live ball and took off with it.

Instead of taking it to the house for an easy touchdown, though, he sprinted back toward his own end zone, eluding and stiff-arming tacklers in the process.

He made it 58 yards before being brought down ... which is also hilarious, since Towson would've earned a safety by letting Parker score on his own team.

In any event, Parker realized his gaffe after the fact, and his reaction was priceless. Fortunately for him, Kent State coasted to an easy 41-21 win.

The Internet is run by cats. This is a scientific fact.

As such, it was really only a matter of time before all the cat videos online were honored in some officially-sanctioned capacity, and the first annual Cat Video Film Festival at Minneapolis' Walker Art Center this week did just that.

More than 10,000 were on hand as Henri 2, Paw de Deux (below) was crowned the winner of the people's choice award, a.k.a. The Golden Kitty!

The tongue-in-cheek, quasi-high brow prize-winning film is in French with English subtitles, dripping with feline ennui, irony and existentialism.

Festival organizer Katie Czarniecki Hill told the Los Angeles Times "It is an experiment," adding, "It'll be interesting to see if people think it's silly, or great, or a waste of time."

"But I like the idea of everyone admitting they like cat videos."

We assert our Fifth Amendment privilege on that one. Check out some of the THG staff's favorite cat videos from our archives after the jump:

The biggest story to come out of Thursday's conclusion of the Republican National Convention was not Mitt Romney's acceptance specch, but #Eastwooding.

Eastwooding being the Twitter hashtag for parodies, jokes and memes at the expense of acting legend Clint Eastwood's unusual, yet highly entertaining speech.

The 82-year-old debated an invisible Obama in an empty chair in what had to be the strangest endorsement of Romney all week, and the Internet went nuts.

Here's the original photo - angled so Invisible Obama still uses a teleprompter (subtly hilarious) - along with some of our favorite celebrity-based parodies:

The Honey Badger is one crazy, nasty ass creature. As one wildly popular and hilarious video once warned us, you do NOT want to mess with this animal.

He doesn't give a you-know-what. He will simply take you and yours down!

Remind you of another (unfortunately) beloved specimen? One whose popularity continues to sky-rocket and who may earn more votes than the Republican nominee for President?

Yes, we're talking about Honey Boo Boo and her eerie similarities to the Honey Badger. See what we mean in the following video:

Legitimate rape. It's become quite a phenomenon of late, and is potentially a great form of birth control, as imagined in this hilarious viral ad ridiculing the recent comments of Republican Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin.

Basically, if you're suffering from Sexually Liberated Uterine Tendencies (SLUT), there's a treatment that can satisfy your carnal urges AND help you not get pregnant.

It's like regular birth control, only imagined by crazy people.

DISCLAIMER: Remember, legitimate rape isn't for everyone. To learn more information and find out if it's right for you, ask your doctor Congressman.

After an Australian news anchor mispronounced the name of the country's airline Qantas, her co-anchor immediately jumped all over it - like a boss.

In the U.S., such a slip of the tongue would likely be followed by awkward silence and/or mortal terror. There, they laughed it off within two seconds.

You've probably already guessed how she botched the name, but it's still worth watching for the newsroom's collective reaction below ...

Are you white? And looking to date other people who are also white?

Then wow, you're in luck, because whitesonlydating (dot) com is here! An ad for the fake online relationship site was posted on Reddit earlier today in all its Caucasian glory.

The most hilarious part - besides the surprisingly in-depth breakdown of the different shades of white - is that to a non-white individual, this is probably what most ads for legitimate dating sites seem like ... as well as The Bachelor.

This video montage of a Russian guy pulling pranks on unsuspecting people is making the online rounds this week. Some of his stunts are pretty hilarious, while some are just mean and others are a bizarre combination of the two.

It's okay to laugh, but also feel somewhat bad, right?

Also funny? The default reaction to being victimized by a practical joke in Russia is apparently to charge the assailant at full-speed. Take a look:
