Default Re: Share your road trip experiences....

I probably should have taken a lot more pictures along the way, but here's a few..

Games I've been to:

@ Miami in 2003 ---- #80's first game. Texans win on pass to #80. South Beach party time. Also hit Florida @ Miami game at the Orange Bowl the day before. Stadium parking is a mess. Barely made kickoff.

@ Chicago in 2004 ---- Super cold. Single digits with steady 25 MPH wind. Pregame beers freezing in the can faster than you could drink it. Weekend before Christmas in Chicago = awesome. Texans win.

@ Buffalo in 2005 --- Drove all night to Buffalo after seeing Texas beat Ohio State in Columbus on Saturday. Scored tickets in Bills friends and family section. JP Losman looked like a Hall of Fame'er. Texans lose. JPL is benched about three weeks later. Buffalo Bills fans do not know how to use trash cans. Ralph Wilson Stadium stops selling beer after half time.

@ San Fransisco in 2005 --- Reggie Bush Bowl. Cold and rainy. New Years Day(?) game. Scored free tickets in the parking lot. Overtime. Neither team wanted to win. Texans lost. Took Mario anyway.

@ Green Bay in 2008 ---- Zero degrees when we arrived at the stadium. No wind. Everyone in GB pretends it's not cold. Packer fans love beer and are very friendly. Texans win. Primo seats.

@ Tennessee in 2010 ---- Drove all night to get there at 10:00 AM. Scored free tickets and parking pass outside the stadium. TN fans were very nice. I almost puked when I saw the Oiler/Titan Hall of Fame. Texans lost. Texans D flagged for fighting amongst themselves. Beautiful day. Terrible game.

@ New Orleans in 2011 ---- NOLA party plus football cannot be beat. Texans almost pulled of the upset, but didn't. Still a good time was had by all.
