I was a little surprised that the steady stream of Texans fans leaving at the beginning of the 4th quarter. This is FOOTBALL!! And we have a great team! You pay full price for a ticket to FOUR quarters of NFL football, why not enjoy it?!

Then again, I'm one of the folks who sat through every home game of the 2-14 season, never leaving our seats until the clock showed 0:00, so I might not be the best person to comment on these folks.

At one point, the place was packed. I even mentioned to my buddy that I was surprised at how full the wine & cheese levels were packed. Those folks are usually inside enjoying the luxuries not afforded to rabble like myself, but they were mostly there in seats at one point in the game.
