The city in general is very accommodating, and you'd be hard pressed to find a friendlier place to attend a football game and tailgate! While I haven't actually got to hang out with them yet, I've heard nothing but good things about the Blue Crew that hangs out here on the forums (they are actually in platinum). Also, Raging Bull always does a great job. As far as ticket availability, it's going to depend on the game. If we're playing a scrub team the tickets will be easier to come by and will be cheaper. If we're playing a marquee type (Packers, Ravens, etc.) they will be in short supply and pretty expensive.

If you're going tailgating make sure to stop by there, they'll welcome you with open arms. When I went for the 49ers game they showed me around and introduced me to people from the boards, they're awesome, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks guys that's good to know! I've met quite a few Southerners over the years and they're always super friendly. One guy in particular is from Texas (cowgirls fan) but again always helpful and really personable. My wife has a bit of a thing for cowboys (and I don't mean the team) lol

Welcome to Houston, Brit!!
The 3rd spot is really tough with Watt, Brown, JoJo, and Myers all having an argument. Cushing's sweet arms and ability to run the wildcat like a mug give him the edge in my mind.

Edit: Schaub too. Best QB in franchise history (the lowest of bars).

Houston is the greatest big city with a large "small town" mentality....... EVER!!!!


Houston is the 4th largest city in 'Merica" and yet still super friendly. We actually say "hello" to people on the streets. We actually thank -or- wave when someone lets us in traffic.. It's town where I grew up in and many of my friends are not from here. It's a diverse town that I am very proud of!!!

Sounds like the sorta place I'd LOVE. London used to be a lot more friendly than it is nowadays.....and manners cost nothing...So when I hear there are still friendly places in terms of the bigger cities it makes me glad!

Sorry...we're not really half keen on Newbies. On your bike!





1. Houstonians are warm and fuzzy and get along with MOST people with the exception of Dallas Cowboy fans.

2. Tailgates RULE.

3. Best players? Andre, Arian and WATT!

Never been to NB. That said West and East coast Canada and USA are such hugely different places - it's really stunning the differences you see in the people, and geography.

Having said all that, had I been a fan at the time I'd probably have thrown my remote through the tv screen lol!

Yep from what I've seen in photos and vids the west is completely different. I have friends from both sides too.... My ex is French Canadian and her family and culture was really different. Beautiful country, one day I hope to see more of it!

Rosenfels turned the ball over 3 times in the last 6 minutes of the game and blew a lead that was 17 points, IIRC.
