One of the things Teddy J and I pride ourselves on is conducting good interviews. Given Ted’s playing experience and my background as a newspaper reporter, our one-two punch of interviewing is our bread-and-butter, and every now and again we get an interview that even leaves us blown away.

That was the case Thursday night. Houston native and Eisenhower graduate Henry Thomas stopped by our show Thursday night and delivered radio gold. A 14-year NFL veteran, Thomas was selected to two Pro Bowls during his career, played along side a host of Hall of Famers, including two in Minnesota, John Randle and the newly inducted Chris Doleman.

An undersized nose tackle at 6-2, 280 lbs, Thomas is the NFL’s career leader in sacks for a nose tackle with 93.5 and had two seasons where he registered more than 100 tackles. Those are gaudy numbers for a guy who didn’t fit the prototypical mold for a nose tackle. But the self-admitted ‘student of the game’ used superb technique and study habits, not to mention a tremendous off-season workout regimen to last 14 years in the NFL.

It was fun to hear he and Ted swap old school experiences about life both during and after the NFL. But he had two nuggets alone that were priceless – his thoughts on JJ Watt and what was it like in Minnesota after one of the most lopsided trades in NFL history – the Vikings trade for Herschel Walker. Sure it was great for the Cowboys and propelled them to becoming the team of the 90s, but there’s never been much made about what it did to the Vikings. Very interesting perspective from Henry.

Go check out the interview here on the web site, it’s definitely worth your time and you might actually learn something along the way.

AS for tonight’s show, don’t miss it, Rob Mahoney from Sports Illustrated joins us at 630 to talk what the Rockets need to do this offseason, we’re finally going to get to some Fair or Foul after running out of time the last two nights and c’mon, it’s the PreParty to the PreParty, so you know we’ll have some tomfoolery in store. Check it out, The Fred and Ted Show tonight at 6 on Houston’s Sports Leader, Sports Radio 610.
