According to PFT (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/09/12/ravens-texans-game-will-air-on-directv/)

This means we can see it at sports bars in Austin. Yeah!

I am too, man. It's sports bar or bust.

My apartment doesn't face the right way for DirecTV or I would have gotten it a long time ago.

Nope. Read the other threads - there's a lot of info on this here and in the Tailgate section.

Unless Reliant is underwater it's still going to be in Houston.

Yeah - maybe any other Monday night - but when the Cowboys are on - you're fighting a losing battle in the RGV.

Where are you exactly? Corpus?

I'm in Corpus Christi so I'm happy about this. It shouldn't have even been an issue because this is why we pay the big bucks for Sunday Ticket. Thanks for the news Diehard!:texflag::tiphat:

Actually, we're two hours south of Corpus. I'm in Harlingen/San Benito to be exact. :texflag:

I hope I'll see the game. I have Sunday Ticket, but up here it's on Star Choice :thinking:

Anyone know if the Ravens players actually made it to town. If not what are the chances that they get here in time for the game ?

If they're already in Houston... then I really feel for them, worst road-game ever! :)

Cant expect the big screen because thay have live music there. I suggest a sports bar, but I will be at the Saxon for the next nooon game, trust me it will feel like home again for Texans fans.
