Captain is up to his neck in bills from being laid off awhile back, so he's trying to climb out of that hole. Jungle Bob would do it, but he can't afford two seats.

We'll be back, though. Of that I have no doubt...if this economy can actually rebound and keep from crashing on us.

That's awesome, man. I can't wait to teach her about the sport we love. She doesn't really have a choice.

I do plan on making it to some games, though. When they release single game tickets, we are definitely getting seats for the Titans game.

But the expenses of my baby girl are far more important than an entertainment diversion, no matter how passionate I feel about enjoying football. Being a dad > being a Texans fanatic.

Maybe next year things will be better and we can get tickets. Time will tell.
if my wife ever tweaks a hammy and can't suit up, I'll give you a shout.

A season has not gone by where I have had at least one ticket to four games available in a year, due to people backing out at the last moment. Since I usually know by 7 am on Sundays I will give you a shout, hopefully it should give you enough time to make necessary preparations.

On second thought, I'll just buy new ones!

Y'all are too kind!

I've tried not to be too bummed out, as I never intended to ever give my ticket up. But the niceness of my fellow Texans fans has been overwhelming and have definitely lifted my spirits about next season.

Ya never know DB, I still might have to sell a couple of mine before it's all over. I think times are tough for all your TT buds! BUT, somehow, someway, we will take care of each other.

Just got this email from the Texans. Is this a sign?

Attention Texans Fan,
We've identified some seats that are currently available in your section! Do you have enough in 2009? Is there anyone you know that would want to experience all the hard hitting action at a Texans game with you? Now is the time. And remember, special food and beverage incentives exist for those season ticket holders who refer someone who purchases season tickets for 2009.

For more information or to reserve your tickets today call me at ...

Yeah, we got the same email. Guess the waiting list folks that have been there for years have also bailed on it.. Everyone has to choose what it right for their families during these times.Football for some is a great escape from the reality of whats going on in the economy, for others, it is just a game and that the expense of it is not worth it... Understand both sides of the coin there.. But honestly, how often are the seats really sold out... Paid tickets and actual butts in seats are not the same.. So the Texans saying they have sold out every game is not incorrect, but I would bet my life that it is no where near correct as in the stadium being full all those games...
