Why Porky, I'm glad you asked.

Today is the last day of the offseason!

It's time to celebrate! It's like Christmas Eve and I can't wait to open all the new toys tomorrow morning. Who is with me?

Oh don't worry.

In the first week of camp we can start looking at some still pictures from training camp and using our superior powers of discernment to determine what any particular players attitude is at that point in time.

In a week we will by screaming for some preseason action

By the end of the 1st game we can start the "chicken little" vs. "it's only preseason debates"

By the 2nd preseason game we will all be talking about how long and useless the preseason is.

By the 3rd preseason game we will be at each other's throats ready for the season to begin.

By the last preseason game we are just praying for no injuries and making predictions for the Steelers game.

Oh, I thought it was "National eat the other white meat day". Well, this is much better than that. The end of the offseason should be a national holiday of some sort I think.

The wife even excused me from the weekend trip with the outlaws. I CAN GO TO THIS WEEKENDS PRACTICES NOW!!

The team meets tomorrow. Practice starts Sat.

I think the team meets today at 4:30 and will begin practice tomorrow. Saturday is the first practice that fans are allowed.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. :)

I was just about to post that. I was under the impression first practice was tomorrow morning at 8:30. That's why today is the last day of the offseason, or so I thought.

I went to the Texans site, and there is unbelievably scant info on when the practices are except the public ones. They need to do a MUCH better job than what I was able to find, which was basically zero. They do have a countdown to camp ticker and it's at 2 hours and counting. :thinking:

You're probably right. I'm gong by what I heard on the news last night. I thought Bob Allen said the team would have their first meeting Friday with the first practice Sat morning. I could very well be mistaken.

As could I. It would be nice to get an official clarifcation.

I'm kinda cornfused too, SheTex. But, by Camp dates listed on NFLN and the countdown ticker on HT.com have me thinking they'll meet today and begin going at it tomorrow. Additionally, I wouldn't think they'd want their very first practice open to the fans.

As could I. It would be nice to get an official clarifcation.

I agree. I know I've read and heard about it, but I'll be danged if I can find anything now. :wild:

*edit: I found this on Chron. Not much, but....

The Texans open their seventh training camp Friday at the Methodist Training facilities, and starting Saturday, you'll have a chance to watch. Find out how you can be a part of the action.

Another from Chron

After reporting Thursday, the Texans begin practice Friday.

Regardless, it's close, and that's all that matters!! Two more weeks until our first preseason game!! Tailgating, seeing all our Texan friends, feeling the spirit and excitement of another year with our TEXANS!! I truly get chilly bumps just thinking about our boys running through that darn bull!! Lots of new faces to recognize, and numbers to learn. THEN, it'll all change the end of August. lol Makes me kinda sad thinking that 28 guys will get cut before the regular season starts.

Everything has been worked out, Gary. Diapher hooked me up with your Mother's # and we worked out the details.

BTW, she informed me of a certain story. Apparently you yelled at a rookie that wasn't catching passes thrown at him and a coach heard you yelling at the rook and laughed his butt off.

Thanks again for hooking me up. That was very cool of y'all. :)
