They must have just made the decision because I was on there earlier and the website wasn't promoting it yet.

The decision was made when the schedule was announced. It was discussed many times on this forum. People were like "why are they going to have Battle Red games for the last two home games?".

The game tickets are red and also say "battle red". Pretty clear to me.

I have a couple of questions....

1. What time do the parking lots open?
2. Should I plan to arrive early?
3. Is it going to be televised locally?(If so what channel on comcast?)

That is all.....

12-11-2007, 10:09 PM
I got some additional information and hope to spread the word.

The Texans are encouraging people to show up early to beat the traffic. Parking lots will open at 3 for most folks.

They want us in our seats early so we look good on TV. :cool: So be sure to give people the bidness at the tailgates to get folks moving.

The player introductions will happen before the National Anthem because it is a nationally televised game. So you have to get there extry early to make sure that the players get a good intro.

Fountains in the Houston area will turn red in celebration of Battle Red Day. I kid you not.

Red lights will be turned on at Reliant Stadium. Yup. If anyone gets a good picture of this, let me know.

And wear red damnit. Don't be purple shirt guy who ruins the picture:

Check out the HT.com splash page.

Andre Johnson in the picture is wearing red pants. Shiny red pants. And he is looking at you with a steely intensity that says, "Don't be making fun of my pants or I'll bust you in the mouth."

The game is also right on the backside of rush hour and on top of that it is Christmas season...so everyone should leave extra early methinks.

I just got an e-mail from the Texans saying the City of Houston wasn't allowing vehicles to line up on Kirby, Fannin or Main St on Thursday afternoon prior to the parking gates opening. Even though 2 sentences earlier in that paragraph it says "We anticipate heavy traffic on Thursday, so we are urging everyone to arrive as early as possible for Battle Red Day.

HUH???

I thought they were opening the gates a few hours earlier then anticipated. So unless you came REALLY early, it shouldn't be a problem.

The Texans are 4-2 on Battle Red Day.

This is despite being underdogs for all of those games.

There are actually studies that suggest that red is a color that improves athletic performance. Of course, the money used for that sort of study should go to curing cancer instead.

It's often frustrating as a fan that you can't do more to help your team. If they ask me to show up early and wear red, well then, that's what I'm gonna do.

Oh, agreed, agreed, and AGREED!!!!

I'm just saying, when you see the Dallas Cowboys, you KNOW it's the Dallas Cowboys. Same for the Packers, Steelers, Bears, hell even the Dolphins, you know it's those teams. They're not constantly mixing and matching. Black tops/gold bottoms....THAT'S the Pittsburgh Steelers. They've been that way for years, they have the tradition. How do you build tradition when you're constantly changing? WTF, let's go red tops/blue bottoms and blue tops/red bottoms next year. I'm just saying it's tough for football fans watching those "fastest 3 minutes" highlights at halftime of MNF or whatever, to recognize/identify that that's the Texans when they're in umpteen different unis.

No doubt, I wouldn't care if they wore pink with purple stripes and yellow polka-dots if they are WINNING!!!

Just saying.

The colors are remaining the same. It's not like some games we have a red/white/blue color scheme and others we have a green/black/yellow color scheme.

Anyone else see any irony that Halliburton is the sponsor of Battle Red Day? I wonder if they put in a bid to be the sponsor.

Red lights, red fountain, red uniforms....this is gonna look either really good or really bad on TV. I'm sure it'll look really cool in person.

Great call by the marketing department.

Something about consistency comes to mind, as well as tradition. We have always lacked in both areas.

This is nothing more than a marketing ploy to sell more merchandise.

I agree with you about the traditions of winning teams. I don't think the Steelers have six different uniform combos in their entire history, much less within one freakin' season.

it's just a uniform.

It's just a game, too. :howdy:

I'm not so sure on the whole red uniform. I liked the red and white combination a lot better than this. But a win is all I want tomorrow.

I've never been a fan of the 'battle red' unis. Red is not one of our primary colors, but rather an accent color. But whatever, I'm just a fan of football and not so much on marketing schemes designed to make the team more money.

Rah rah rah, show your spirit. Can we have a winning season now?

That being said, I spent $15 on a D. Davis battle red jersey to get with the program. Mainly because it's primetime and I do want H-town to represent.

Otherwise, I'll leave the fashion tips to those that desire to be fashion designers. That would not be me.

LOL. Look I'm not the fashion police or that light in the loafers guy who talks about the women's dresses on the oscar red carpet...boodrow or cudrow...what ever...but there is way too much orange in that red. I mean the biggest fashion satement I make is putting on a yellow sweater with a tweed jacket in the winter time. But that isn't a good shade of red. It's not menacing, not prety. I mean it takes some doing to make Andre Johnson look bad. Just way too much orange in that red.
