What you're watching -- over and over again -- is Texans tight end Owen Daniels climbing a fire pole at The Silver Dollar bar in Louisville, KY,.
According to ShotOfGinn.com, both Daniels and teammate Matt Schaub attended this past weekend's Kentucky Derby, and decided to have some additional fun in the Bluegrass State. Word is Schaub bet Daniels that he couldn't climb to the top of the pole.

It's unclear if money or alcohol was involved, though I'm guessing (hoping) it was one of the two.
