Default Re: why the effff is the blue crew not up for this award?

Look Guys I voted, and I did protest the actual listing but a contest is a contest and if we can not be a part of the decision then I will give them mine.

Public and out in the open

Old school tailgaters
Texans Mojo and in no paticular order we just had to push one or the other.
I did a third and that was not important the thing is we are one nation.
We have a very intense NFL enviroment in Houston. I have been all over and these groups have traditions that get stronger every year. And family upon family come by and enjoy the afternoon before going back to the grind for the week. It is too bad that we do not have a game every week so we could have more time to practice the art of what we do. Every body on that stadium ground is the real winner cause you get to be there experiencing the history first hand and I say Welcome and Merry Christmas to All

Default Re: why the effff is the blue crew not up for this award?

I will get the answers and relay them to you Blue Crew. Here is my latest email to JM.

Quote:
John, I am not trying to get you to change any rules or the contest itself as we in the Blue Crew are very laid back in that regard. That being said I was looking at www.Chron.com the other day when I ran across a Tailgate competition and a Poll as to who was the best Tailgate. As you are aware I am a member of a great Tailgate that has been situated in the corner of the Blue/Platinum lot for the entire existence of the Texans as a Football team. We have no corparate sponsorship and have done this individually since we decided to come together. When I looked at the list of the tailgates in the poll on www.Chron.com I was taken with suprise that we at the Blue Crew had nary a whisper of mention when there were so many other fellow Tailgates in the poll. When questioning wether we were elegible we were told that the platinum lot was all corparate sponsors and the Chronicle wanted tailgates that were not sponsored. Well I know that a few of the Tailgates listed are Sponsored when in fact we at the Blue Crew are not. Not only were we at the Blue Crew left out of the poll but another Famous Texan Tailgate "the Raging Bull" were left out as well. I am not one to have any buisness dealings with the Raging Bull but I am sure that they feel as bad as we do about being snubbed by this poll. John, I have a lot of People that make up my tailgate somewhere in the numbers between 60 and 120 per game and it is them that I am trying to get an answer to. I cannot even think of how I could do this alone as it takes every last member of the blue Crew to make it work and I take it as my responsibility to try to get an understanding as to why we are left off of a poll that we have worked very hard to be a part of. I appreciate any info you can relay to me and thank you for taking the time to listen to what we had to say. On behalf of the Blue Crew I say Go Texans! Joe Texan
you guys and gals let me know if I need to say anything else
I did mention Filo to john on the phone. No we have not forgot our orange haired stepchild

Default Re: why the effff is the blue crew not up for this award?

I'll be honest here, I'm not bothered at all that we were left off the poll. It's nice to be recognized, but I'm not going to lose sleep if we're not. We've always done our thing, and we always will. The reasons for our tailgating are many, and not one of them is for recognition in an online poll or any publication for that matter.

Over the years we have had thousands of visitors to our tailgates. Some were out of town fans, others included Houstonians, opposing team's fans, and even some from overseas. Each time I meet someone new at our tailgates they've said the same thing: What a great time they had, and a big thank you. Many of those former guests are now part of the "Blue Crew" and every year we continue to grow.

The recognition that means the most to me is in the the words of gratitude and smiles on guests & regulars that stop by and see us throughout the football season. To them, I say: "You're always welcome."

I am more interested in the Supergate and trying to go to it in Tampa.
The tailgate train rolls through H town on tuesday evening of Superbowl week. We, the Blue Crew Have been invited to add a car to that train, I am just not sure I can do it this year.
I am inviting all Houston Texans to Pack up your Tailgating equip and Hop on the train.

Well said, little buddy! I always knew there was something I liked about you.


David and I recently were talking about this very same thing. Over the years, some of our group has strayed for family reasons or some have moved away and even though we miss them we have been blessed by other fantastic people with each new tailgate.

We really have a great thing going.

I still haven't heard from the Comical about this. I am sure they will let us know sometime AFTER the voting is over on the 26th.


Having the voting without including Platinum is like having an Ultimate Fan contest and not including Gary because he does too much charity work.
