HIDALGO, Texas – "El rey de los Texans" and "el rey del acordèon" sat next to each other on a plane, and the photo op that ensued was what many Tejano and football fans called legendary.
Tejano star Ramon Ayala tweeted a photo of himself and Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson on a flight Sunday night.
Ayala said he was headed home, thanking his fans in California and Arizona for the love -- mentioning how seating arrangements allowed him to meet Watson.
The replies to Ayala's tweet were priceless:

Watson retweeted Ayala's photo and a photo from a fan who wondered whether Watson was jamming out to Ayala's Tragos Amargos.
Ayala had previously performed at the Big Fresno Fair in California on Oct. 15.
Watson was selected by the Houston Texans with the 12th pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.
