It was really nice to see everyone and to meet a couple of people from Message Boards that I had not met yet.

Back at ya Big Toro. Chris and I tried to look for Pope's, but after walking around the Superdome, we figured we'd go crash Champion's Square. We were the only 2 red jerseys in a sea of black, white and gold. IT FELT DAMN GOOD TO REPRESENT HOUSTON, AND MADE ME PROUD TO BE A TEXAN!!!!
:texflag: :texan: :texflag:

See y'all next week. Dont know if I'll be in yellow or blue, but see y'all soon.

Just a word to say it was a pleasure to meet all you fine folks and represent. I'll 2nd that the Saint's fans were very gracious and hospitable. It was a great time and I thank JB for haulin me there and back. Wish I could remember everyone's name but I get like that when all of you had been drinkin' and the such ;^)

How much walking did we do, anyway???

Me too!

I think the walk to the stadium was about 16 blocks in the straight line we did not follow. We walked up & down a lot at the stadium. After the game, we walked all the way to the end of the quarter, again not in a straight line.

A whole lot further than my usual fridge to chair & back...

And Glenn is a long strider.

How did I get back to the Hotel. Lets see, rocking with Billy and His Better Half then they say lets go. we go outside and shazam I see Texans Jerseys and Tell Billy to go I am staying with the The Texans. Turns out it was yall JB Bill, Mitch and a bunch more. We went into the dungeon and man that was strange. I went down a hall then thru a tunnel then down some stairs to another tunnel then there was this guy with a microphone and a line of people. I waited till the front and thought I was in a libriary but the microphone dude pulled the books open and it was a bathroom. Great cause I was in need. Went back the way I came and then we left and walked to the park. Some dude in a white jersey said come look at this and I went around the park and then yall were gone. I fell flat on my face and got healed by a homeless witch. We, me and this dude in the white Jersey went to a bar and got a drink. then we started to find the hotel that I found 50 ways to get there. When I got to the hotel dude in the white jersey said it was not his jersey and left. Thought it was 4 am when I got to bed. got up at 9 and loaded up and left. Fun Times and I am sorry bout the pope guys and gals he only tailgates the regular season. we all have an invite for next year. I did see the pope friday night and he took care of my friends and me.

I'm glad the first day I'm ever in New Orleans I try to stay sober so I can remember things when I'm drunk afterwards. :bender:

08-24-2010, 05:34 AM
One thing about getting drunk in NO! Ya don't HAVE to drive anywhere! I didn't get drunk, but, my legs still hurt from all the walking. Good for me though, so I won't complain!

I know this thread will die soon, so I have a couple things to say!

New Orleans fans were much more respectful than I anticipated. I only encountered one chick in the bathroom who told me to GET OUT!!!! She was past the drunk phase though so I simply ignored her, UNTIL she came across the bathroom to attack me. Thankfully, her friend was not as drunk and grabbed her and told her to "STFU!!" The friend apologized, I accepted, and beelined out of that place!! I did wash my hands though!:pursefight:

I haven't been to NO in over 30 yrs, and can't say I'm gonna head back anytime soon. Not my cup of "booze" I guess! lol I did have a FANtastic time with some of the most AWESOME Texan fans around. Everyone was ready to take care of their friend if need be, and I found that a comforting feeling. When I decided not to hang around the bars after the game, I think it was Ron who walked me to Canal and Bourdon street to meet my daughter. He didn't have too, it was only about 3 blocks, but, he insisted he wanted GMA to get there safe. I was surrounded by great fans who love their team, regardless of the crappy game they played.

My legs are killing me, my back is sore, and I don't care!! My sincere THANKS to all of you for making this a super fun trip!!! You probably saw me drink more in one night than I have all year! Two beers and one J&C and I was DONE!:zzz:

I have no idea where we stayed last time, but it was within walking distance of both the Dome and short taxi ride to the Quarter. I don't quite remember how we all got back home...

We were polluted so I can't really say other than it was extremely convenient for both.

New Orleans is one thing I haven't done yet. It seems smarter to be close to the game and hitch a ride to the french quarter or wherever you wanna go.

Last time the Texans played in New Orleans, we had a hotel in the French Quarter and then drove to the game, parked and then headed back home to Texas after the game. The drive to the Superdome from the Quarter is very short.

We visit New Orleans frequently and I would recommend one of the hotels on Canal St. which borders the French Quarter. Its much easier driving up to a hotel on Canal St. rather than trying to drive through the Quarter to get to a hotel. It is a real hassle trying to drive a car along the streets in the Quarter.

Yes it would. Let the taxi driver worry about driving in the Quarter.

I would stay in a hotel in the Quarter rather than one near the Dome. To me, its more important to be within walking distance of the Quarter rather than walking distance to the Dome.

I tried booking there in May for the Sept game and they were all booked up, so they said. I want to stay at a Marriott (rewards points) but, might change. The Marriott at the Convention center is not that close to the Superdome, so I've been told. About a 20-30 min walk, so I suppose about a mile or so.

It's more fun to stay with a group, so if you all get one together let me know.
