Hope not. I don't need to smell that crap for 3 hours.

Before the infamous Steeler game, there were SEVEN games where the roof was open with the temperature above the 80 degree max the Texans set after the Steelers game. The roof was open for the Raiders in 2004 and the temperature was 94. Same temperature it was for the Steelers game a year later. I don't recall the same complaints about the Steelers game for that one. I think it's going to be fine.

I know....easy for me to say now that I'm in the SEZ, but I sat in that sun for 4 years so I know exactly what it's like and only a couple of times was it really unbearable.

It's October. A 90 degree day is unlikely from here on out unless there's some freak heat wave. 85, 87 is an inconvenience but it isn't that big a deal.

Yeah, but a 30-17 win + heat is a lot easier to handle than 7-27 loss + heat.

But I agree. Most of the ridiculous 95+ degree games are out of the way, so we should be fine. I just hope it's at least partly cloudly so I can see the game. LOL

Here we go again! All I'm gonna say about the matter is THANK GOD for the updated Bullpen Pub!! I refuse to get sick and be carried out on a stretcher, again! For the first half of the noon games I'll be enjoying the game from the PUB! Anyone want to join me, we can make the place rock!! Anyone want to watch the game from the Bullpen for the first half, I have three seats on row N, section 116 and you are welcome to use them. BUT, you won't have a problem finding a seat. Most of the NEZ will be roaming around the concourses, watching the game from the many TVs scattered about, until the shade makes it's way around. Been through this for 6yrs now, and that's just the way it is. You guys/gals up in Gridiron that have air conditioning blowing down your necks, enjoy the game and make lots of noise. The NEZ will be absent!

One thing in our favor though, at least the fans in the NEZ, is that we have TWO 3pm games. NOW, that rocks!!!!
