Re: Chicago Game
PLEASE do the following:
(we're working on taking Texan Chick's fan guide and making a how to behave guildine):
(1) If you hear of a tailgate through the grapevine (I have not heard of one for Chicago), unless it is a pay to tailgate, it is probably friends of friends - just a normal old tailgate. When you get wind of these tailgates from the FB group, here, or Texan Chick's blog, it is not Texans event nor is there a corporate sponsor.
So take a 6 pack, offer to chip in (they will usually tell you no) and be grateful for the hopitality.
(2) For the bar events - (I have never heard nor seen of Texans' fans doing this). Show good sportsmanship and realize you're in THEIR city, even if you have taken over a bar. There was a Bills take over Saturday night and we stopped by to say hi to friends (we had jerseys on). They booed, they were jerks, said stupid things like 'go home' (which made no sense) and pissed my wife off so bad we left before we would have stopped being courteous.
(3) I've heard it can be hostile up there. The best way to avoid a jerk or a drunk fool is with a quick 'good luck today' before or a 'good game today' after and carry on your way. This is for your own safety, there are some Texans' fans with war stories from up there.
Apparently your mom, lol.
Only fan in Ohio in 2002 :) Glad I moved to Texas!
