I booked my flight and hotel right after the game ended. I have a friend who is a local ticket broker and have him on the lookout for getting a game ticket.

I'd like to see who else is going and would love to meet up with fellow TexansTalkers up there.

Hook me up with any and all info please. I am currently stationed at Fort Meade, only 20 minutes from Baltimore. My wife and I are looking to go, but I honestly don't feel too keen on going just us. I would love to go with a half a dozen or so others for a reasonable price.... hit me up!

First, thank you for your service to our country. PM if you'd like, my ticket broker friend is an honest, straight shooter if you need help with tickets. I'm staying at the Hilton near the stadium. I'd be honored to buy you and your wife a beer. GO TEXANS!!!!

I wish I'd known you were up here too. I'm up at JB McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst.
I was down in D.C. for the 'Skins game last year.

I tried to get tickets to the game during the regular season and the tickets were expensive because of the small size of their stadium. Good luck on getting tickets with everyone else. It's a blast to meet people from the board.

Unfortunately I won't be making it-gotta save for my move/retirement in June.

My first road game ever.

Going with my fun friend Diane.

Haven't arranged tickets yet, but got flight/hotel.

Flights are expensive but cheaper if you get them through a package deal. I did mine through United Vacations. Pretty inexpensive for such a late date.

My wife and started searching around for tickets right after the game ended. She has a friend that lives there so we could stay with her and save money on the hotel. But airfare is $800-$900 (for two), that plus what I saw tickets going for on ebay, I don't think its possible. Unless I can find cheaper airfare and score some decent price on tickets, I would sit in nosebleeds and be happy about it for a decent price.

*edit - just checked out United vacations and for the same price you can get two nights at a hotel, that is a pretty good deal. Too bad I can't find airfare only for cheaper.

01-08-2012, 12:45 PM
Started looking for airfare, and it's ridiculously high.. If I can find a reasonably priced flight I will go no questions asked, I have a friend up there I can stay with and will be happy finding some nosebleed seats..

I'll be on constant refresh and hopefuly there will be some surprise dip in flight prices

Is anyone considering a road trip? I think it's like 20 hrs...

Try united vacations into Baltimore or DC. Package deals cheaper than airfare alone. Also you can check out Continental cool fares Monday midnight.

Thread makes for good reading for people who are going to the game.

Having just moved away from the Baltimore area I can totally vouch for the thread's recommendation of G&M as a great crab cake place. A local institution and it is bigger than it looks; it will be crowded for lunches and dinners but they move people through pretty well. They also have a carry out/quick service counter on the property that may be a good option if you have a lot of people in your crew. Desserts rock there too, but I doubt you'll have room for them.

Man, this is killing me to think how close I lived to that place and now I can't get there for the first road playoff game! Have fun y'all.

Long time lurker here but it's time to come out of the shadows. I grew up in Houston and attended almost every game through 2005, before heading off to college. Now I live/work in D.C. and only make it home to Houston for one or two games a season.

But, with the Texans coming up to Baltimore I'll be taking the opportunity to come up and get in on the playoff fun. Very excited about it. Couldn't find a friend willing to make the trip with me, so I'm coming up on a train Sunday morning by myself and will definitely be looking for Texans fans to meet up with. It looks like there may be a tailgate coming together but no one seems to have any firm plans posted in the thread - is that happening via PM? I'd love to join in the fun, let me know.

I only needed two tic for the wife and I but the pairs were selling for more. So PM me if interested. I should have them in hand on Thursday. Not looking to make profit, just to sell what I don't need and to get more Texans fans in that stadium!

For those needing airfare. I found round trip for $199 per person. Same fare today. AirTran from Hobby to IAD Washington DC Dulles. Departs Saturday, returns Tuesday.

Sure, as long as I have a buyer for the other ticket, I'm cool. I paid $1K, so just asking $250 per ticket. I think face value is around $140. I thought this was a pretty good deal for 117 row 31 on the player entry tunnel.

Really wanted to be on that Texans sideline but the pairs in the lower rows were going for $800+ today.

I'm also coming up to the game from DC as a single. Still working on ticket options. I had been planning to go upper deck and keep it under $200, but sitting with other Texans fans in the lower deck for $250 is tempting, but a bit of a budget breaker. Let me think about it, I may be able to take that 4th one.

Im looking to go as a single as well. Gotta talk the honey into letting me go solo, cant afford both of us! Anyone know if the Holiday Inn/Inner Harbor is ok? It says it's right across the street from Camden yards. And from what I gather, M & T is right there as well.

Can't speak for the hotel itself but that area is fine. Camden and M&T are side by side. The entire inner harbor area is in walking distance. It will be cold those days so dress warm, high of 37 for the day.

I can come down but the ticket prices are kinda high. But if someone sees/has tickets anywhere that are a decent price let me know. If there's another single (no I'm not looking for a relationship-LOL) who sees two tickets I'm willing (again depending on price) to join in.

Okay, friends decided to go and take both tickets. So I looked on eBay and there are plenty of singles going pretty low. One auction today is for ROW TWO section 129 for $275 with Buy it now of $325! Ends tonight. I'd take that one and go Buy it Now!

Most events will be taking place in and around the Inner Harbor area, which is near the Stadium (about a mile). If not walkable, should be a short cab ride. We're working out stuff for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, whatever folks can attend.

Sounds like Saturday we will be packing a bar with about 50 or so Texans fans.

Glad I found ya'll!! Booked all my tickets along with 3 of my other friends who are also die hard season ticket holders. In Baltimore we are sitting in sec 153 row 2. Thats right on the 45-50 yd line, 2 rows behind the Texans bench!!!

Unfortunately 1 of my buddies might not be able to go. so his misfortune could be somebody's fortune. I just want exactly what i paid for them which is $790 each, if you are looking for tickets u will see that these prices are a steal compared to $1100 each. only have 1 ticket available. TEXANS FANS ONLY. u will be sitting right next to us and we are gonna help bring home a victory so get ready to get loud! if anyone is interested please pm me. please dont make me sell this ticket to a ravens fan. GO TEXANS!

I bought it when we went to NO and everyone was wearing red. I'll definitely be in BATTLE RED mode! Maybe when our players see such a huge contingent of fans it'll ignite a spark that will help take them to victory!!

Hello Texans Fans!

First, let me say I am enjoying the boards. You guys here seem like top notch fans. Well Done!

I am a transplant, having grown up in Baltimore and moved to Houston 6 years ago. I have adopted the Texans as my "second team" and had it not been for my Ravens being in your way, I'd be rooting for them right along side you.

If I may, I wanted to give you folks some advice when you make your trip to Baltimore.

1. Get ready to walk. There is a reason it's nicknamed Smalltimore. It's not like in Houston where going to the next neighborhood requires a 10-15 minute drive. Everything is within walking distance, or a very short cab ride.

2. Speaking of cabs, stick to Yellow Cab if at all possible. The city of Baltimore does a poor job with the cab enforcement. Yellow Cab does a good job policing themselves. The other cab companies will try and gouge you (not turning on meter, haggling a price, try and charge add-ons, etc) so be careful.

3. Avoid Harborplace (and Powerplant). If being a tourist is your thing and you're looking for the Gallery, only smaller and next to the water, then I suppose this is your place. It is possible to get a feel of the city and it's in the surrounding neighborhoods -- Fells Point (my old home and personal favorite), Canton, Federal Hill, Little Italy -- these are the places you want to explore if you want great food, a fun atmosphere, etc. I read some of you are going to meet up at Powerplant. Meh. You should expect popped collars, dudes wearing smedium Affliction shirts and very few over the age of 25. Maybe it's a good spot to meet, but go a few blocks south and east and you're in Fells Point.

4. If the weather says it's 40 that day, plan on it feeling like 30-35. The city sits next to a body of water that whips up the wind. Also, most of the stadium sits in the shade for most of the game.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! I am making the trip as well and cannot wait for Sunday!

HoustonRaven
01-12-2012, 01:29 AM
Almost forgot ....

5. If you find yourself west of Russell Street, turn around. Quickly. You're basically on the set of The Wire and unless you have some yellow tops you plan on selling, you're in the wrong hood.

Depends on what you desire and where you're staying.

Max's on Broadway (or simply Max's) is my personal favorite -- tons of craft / local beers, 25-30 HD TV', etc. it's in Fells Point.

Mother's in Federal Hill is popular but that's a better place to go before the game.

Where are you staying? Do you prefer low key or mad house?

Most bars in Baltimore double as pretty damn good restaurants so if you want excellent food to go with your bar experience, that narrows it down as well.

Yes and Yes.

People from the DC area do not like us folks from Baltimore. It's unfortunate that he has characterized Baltimore that way. I grew up in and around Baltimore and that's nothing close to the city I know.

IMO, it stems from sports mostly. Both cities are football towns, one city has fallen so far from grace, it's become a joke in NFL circles. The other is a well run organization that has a history of winning in their short life. Redskins fans have far more hostility than Ravens fans have towards them.

I'd say it is very much like the Dallas - Houston rivalry on many levels.

Not to offend anyone (HoustonRaven) with the comparison-I hope the Ravens fans are as cool as the Redskins fans.

I had a blast at the Skins game last year. Yes I took alot of good natured ribbing (which I fully expect coming into their house) but it was good.

I've been to Baltimore many times (not for a game though) and everyone was pretty cool, even when I was wearing my Texans stuff.

I went to the regular season matchup there and wore my Texans gear and got a couple ribs walking through the parking lots where the tailgaters were at, but nothing you would call a hostile enviroment. This IS higher stakes and expect to see more Blue/Red there than last time, but other then the occosianal beligerant fan, shouldnt have much to worry about.

I was just wondering if there was a Dallas-Houston type of rivalry where the people in each city hate the other town. Also, do Ravens fans dislike the Redskins like we dislike the Cowboys even though we rarely play them.

Redskins fans give a crap more about Ravens fans than vica versa. It's kinda silly. Two different conferences, two different divisions. The Ravens were born out of territorialism (Jack Kent Cooke convinced Tagliabue not to allow an expansion team in Baltimore by famously saying, "I'd rather see a team in Mexico City than in Baltimore"). Since the 96 inaugural season, though, the Ravens franchise has been nothing but a model for a winning mentality (even when we weren't winning). The Redskins don't have that same culture. So a lot of animosity is directed towards the Ravens because they have nothing better to do than hate other teams. The Ravens just stay focused on winning.

Funny story... Back in, like 2009, the Redskins came to Baltimore during the regular season... a rare matchup, and the first regular season matchup in Baltimore, IIRC. I had a tradition, living in DC, that I would go watch the game in Baltimore during away games (avoid parking hassles) and stay back in DC for home games. I couldn't watch this game in DC though, so I went to Baltimore.

I was at the Ravens fan flagship bar, Mothers in Fed Hill, and a bunch of Skins fans parted the packed crowd, got in a big circle and started singing Hail to the Redskins at the top of their lungs. Ultimate disrespect for the home team to do that in our bar. A few Ravens fans (and Skins fans) ended up getting tossed for a tussle that ensued. That's the only time I've seen any real rivalry from both sides... it's almost always Redskins fans towards Ravens fans.

As for your sports reporter, I'd remind him that when he lived in DC, DC was a hell-hole itself. Both cities have improved. Baltimore has a nice up and coming arts, music and entreprenurial scene. DC has a nice up and coming cloak-and-dagger election scene, a fading music scene and a public transportation system that is so mechanically and financially destitute that people are literally dying.

Does anyone have a contact person for the Texans tailgate in Lot O? I've been hearing rumors from various people, but I'd like to know if 1. this is real; 2. they want a ton of visitors.

Thanks all spreading the news about the blog to folks--had people who aren't even computer types telling me they found it helpful.

UPDATED BLOG POST WITH FRIDAY NIGHT INFO ON IT.

The Battle Red Plan: A guide for Texans fans going to Baltimore (http://blog.chron.com/texanschick/2012/01/battle-red-plan-guide-texans-going-to-baltimore/)

Still looking for tailgate stuff, though if the weather is sketchy enough, we might just stay at the first bar, and wander thru tailgates to the stadium to get in early for warmups, supporting our team.

That Cluch fan forum is interesting... other than that self-racist post... there seems to be lots of their fans attending the game too. They also seem to know where the team is staying... if anyone wants to stalk.

Some guy called TejasTom posted this:

Great TMAC3.

We are asking everyone to wear BATTLE RED at the game.

We want to really stand out. Lot's of people are going to the Luckie's at the Power Plant to watch the Saturday games. There is a Texan's tailgate in Lot O starting at 10 on Sunday.

Follow @HoustonTexans on twitter updates.

I'll be wearing my BATTLE RED #56.

Since I've grown up in the northeast and have attended bitterly cold, open-air stadiums in January. my one bit of advice to everyone is wear two layers of everything. Socks, longjohns, jackets, etc. It always feels a lot colder inside the stadium than outside.

Plus I was in Houston for the Monday night game three years ago vs the Jags, cold isn't your strong suit. :)

From the HT Board (http://boards.houstontexans.com/showthread.php?p=493531#post493531)

"We are going to start tailgating in the "O" Lot at 10:00 and start working our way to the stadium about an hour before game time. Ch 13 news is supposed to stop by our tailgating camp. The more Texans fans there... the better! Theres about 20 in my group alone. "

If anyone out there's still looking for a single ticket, I'm in a group of 3 Texan fans but we had to buy 4 tickets. Section 501, Row 22. Message me if you're interested, I paid $175 per ticket, happy to give it up to any fellow Texan fan willing to pay somewhere in that range.

I'm on the 12:50pm Continental flight to BWI. The plane is filled to the gills with Texans fans wearing our colors. It's a beautiful sight and makes me damn proud of our loyal, passionate fans.

After much deliberation... I'm going! Section 545 row 1!

I'm thinking about bringing my Texans flag to drape over the side... good idea?

The Ravens fans were great!! There was all the normal garbage given but nothing that I wouldn't expect going into someone elses house. The folks sitting around me were all great!

I would go back to a game there anytime (hopefully a win next time though).

It was great meeting a bunch of folks from the boards (Yankee, Texans Chick, Glass Half Full, SheTexan, Joe Texan, Reuben, Zdeac10, and I'm sure there were more but I don't necessarily know who they are on here) had a blast!!

My wife is loving it everytime I tell her that y'all are talking about her cookies.

I guess I'll have to bring them to the next game I go to (when ever that is).
