Default Bears game Reliant atmosphere...

What did y'all think? I though for a 1st pre-season, it was a decent crowd, maybe 3/4 to 7/8th's full. Texans used the same video and "Thunderstruck" during opening on the video, which is nice.
I do wish they would upgrade the music when the team is introduced...I would suggest ZZ Top's "La Grange", the song they use now is just overplayed...not sure what it is though.

I like the Home field advantge ads, those were neat. Didn't really notice anything different up where we are, Section 638, as far as the "Gridiron, Texas" theme. SOme guy came by and threw some t-shirts out, but nothing else I noticed.

I know that the on field product will bring with winning more excitement, more 'atmosphere'. It will happen.

One thing that bugs me is how many people sell off their tickets and they end up in the opposing team's fans hands...but again, this will go away with winning.

Pep Band played at 1/2 time, and they had 3 young boys do a football obstacle course. Seems like they could have had a stop watch on the video screen so we could see what the little fellows were running. Plus, maybe more than just 3 kids running too.

I'm not trying to nit pick, but I see areas where the Texans and Reliant can continue to build traditions.

Oh, and we NEED a real cannon!!!!!!!
