Default Re: I Need Some Help From You Tailgaters and Those In The Know

All they need to know is this:

A couple years ago when we were playing the Chiefs, a very high ranking (albeit recently retired) NFL executive was hanging out with us at Texan Mojo. This guy KNOWS the NFL: the teams, the stadiums, the tailgates; EVRYTHING off the field is his ball of wax. He sits in an owners box every Sunday. Total stud. My freakin' hero actually. He offers me Steve Sabol's phone number with these instructions: "Call Steve. You won't get through to him, but tell his secratary that I gave you Steve's number suggested you call. Steve WILL call you back. Tell him _____ _____ said that you guys have the best tailgate party in the NFL and NFL Films needs to send a camera crew down here to document it."

If that don't get their panties wet, screw 'em.

I never made the call, but that's a separate issue.

Oh. Wait. Is this really about Art Mann? Forget what I just posted. We're better off without him.

What's up with the hate? Sorry you don't dig the show.

I know he'll have a good time and a good show if they come.

It's not so much that I hate Art Mann (although it would be 100x better with a chick host), it's just so many of the people who are on his show looks like idiots.

Separately, from what I've seen of AM, an NFL tailgate party isn't exactly their cup of tea. I like a tailgate party as much as anyone, but they aren't exactly a unique experience. There are 15 or 16 of them going on every weekend across the US for 17 straight weeks. On top of that, there are dozens and dozens of them going on in college town across America every Saturday in the Fall. AM's focus is on more one of kind events.

Thats the first thing I said..NFL tailgates are a dime a dozen but prime time football here is kinda cool.

The people on his show are supposed to look foolish. They are all drunk...lol

My feelings wouldn't be hurt if he agreed with you.

Anyhoo...I told this guy that NFL tailgates are a dime a dozen but there is something magical about Houston, prime time football and tailgating. I told him Nov 23rd will be off the hook here.

So he wants to know...What's So Special About It???

Of course...food, drink, good people, ect. That ain't gonna cut it.

So before I reply I was hoping all of you will throw me some of your thoughts. It would be reallly neat if we got covered, some good pub and show the nation who we are. They have never covered an NFL event except for Super Bowl week once.

Thanks
In this article, I visit with the self-proclaimed commissioner of tailgating, Joe Cahn. He's been everywhere in his RV. He tailgates professionally and says that the Texans have one of the top 5 tailgating experiences in the league.
FanHouse in the Stands: Colts at Texans, A Great Tailgate, Not-So-Great Game

And he was there for a regular game, not a night game. Night games are crazier.

For the Texans to be top 5 after few years in the league means that we kick ass.
