OK. So, the game was GREAT. Several days later and neither my wife nor I can talk right.

After the game, Audrey and I walked to the Green lot, got in our car, and then we drove down Westridge toward South Main. We're in the car talking about how great the game was, which plays we remembered, etc.

And then BAM.

A car came out of one of the apartment buildings and totally crashed into us. It knocked us over from the second lane almost over into the fourth lane. I ran over at least 2 of the cones.

And then the guy sped off.

I chased him a little bit while Audrey and I semi-memorized his license number. We chanted it together a few times. Then I slowed down as Audrey wrote the number down and I pulled into the strip center there where the Speedy Mart is on Bartell. Audrey couldn't open her door and get out. I walked around the car and the passenger side was just totally crunched.

Audrey has some bruises on her legs. We've both got tweaked necks.

A couple of people came up and told us they saw everything that happened and they were nice enough to wait around until the cops showed up.

After talking to the police and giving them all the information they wanted, and after a quick examination by a couple of ambulance guys, I drove the car back to the hotel and then we dropped the car off at the rental office at Hobby before flying home. I expected some grief from the car rental people but they were fine with it as long as they got their case # from the police.

The police called tonight and said that they think they've arrested the guy. But since we didn't actually see who was driving the car, the person might get off. I'm going to call on Monday and get a status on the case.

But it was a great game. First time I've been to a professional Houston football team's game and had them win with me there. :whip:

I am sorry to hear about the circumstances and I thank the Lord that you or your wife weren't harmed in that accident. I wish you more Texan games without the drama afterward.

As far as the hit and run driver.. I will hold my tongue

Sorry to hear about the accident. I Hope Audrey and you are fine and that it is only minor bumps and bruises and stiffness from the sudden tension and whiplash.

On a more happier note I do hope you had a great time and got to meet a bunch of Texans Fans that you had not had the chance to meet.

Yup, the owner of the car has zero liability as far as the cops are concerned - if you can't ID the driver, nothing will happen unless your insurance sues him for the damages.

Hope you enjoyed everything else.

Sorry to hear about the wreck PN. It pisses me off that there are cowards and chicken shit people can't stand up for there own actions. I am glad that you had a good time at the game. You enjoyed a Texans win in person...that's something I have yet to experience. Of course all the games I attended were in the Carr/Capers era. :gun:

So very sorry to hear about about your ordeal but I am glad that you had such a wonderful time at the first ever MNF game in Texans history and also the first ever MNF win in Texans history.

I don't see why the registered owner would not be responsible. If it wasn't them they should say so or already have a stolen car report.

I see Judge Judy in your future.
