The Bulls are aligning. Reliant is better when you are there.
Thanks, man! I was torn between wanting to go with all my being, but not wanting my son to be at home watching the game alone. So this is the best of all worlds, including one of my oldest friends and fellow fanatic with Jungle Bob.

My boy had a hard time getting to sleep last night because he's so excited. And that's what it's all about. Experiences and memories that last a lifetime. The money was gifted to me, so my only regret would be to not use it for this game.

My wife just asked if I wanted to take my son to see Monster Trucks Saturday at 2 p.m. She looked really confused when I said I couldn't make it this time...until she remembered my game is on Saturday (She's a Steelers fan and they play Sunday). Long story short I'll be watching the game on Saturday and I'll be taking my boy to see the Trucks in Baltimore in March.
My sister moved to New Jersey a couple of years ago with her daughters, and I'm sure it's killing her to not have a chance to go to the game, as well. She's widowed now, but her husband was a huge Texans fans with a gigantic logo painted in their house. He was building a Texans room when he got sick, and is buried in his jersey. I plan to get her an AFCS Championship shirt soon, so at least she can have a great reminder of this season.

I'll be at the monster truck show at Reliant the next weekend...unless, of course, the Texans win this weekend and their game conflicts with the schedule.

Close family friends of mine are taking us, and they are yellow lot tailgaters. That means for the first time(27 games) I will not be partying down in the platinum/blue lot. Makes me sad in a way, because I'd love to be there again parked next to Raging Bull, drinking beer with Brock and gang at St. Arnold's, and of course hanging with the blue crew... but just being at the game is good enough.
Right on, man!!!

Sometimes you just have to disregard things and make the jump. You can never regret great memories, and this Saturday will certainly shape up to be one of them regardless of outcome. Glad you are making the trip!
