On the J&R show today on 610 AM, Rich Lord said that the Texans are asking those of us going to the game in Baltimore to wear BATTLE RED. He said because the Deep Steel Blue doesn't stand out from Ravens purple. I'm taking my JJ Watt and Brian Cushing Battle Red jerseys with me. I'm leaning toward wearing Cush's jersey

These guys listen to us. I am bringing my husbands oversized Mario Red Jersey, so I can fit lots of layers under it.

I'm wearing a #80 RED jersey I've worn one time! Not much on wearing jerseys that rep just one player, but, if I'm gonna do it I can't think of anyone better to rep. I bought it when we went to NO and everyone was wearing red. I'll definitely be in BATTLE RED mode! Maybe when our players see such a huge contingent of fans it'll ignite a spark that will help take them to victory!!

Doesn't sound like 50 is cut it. We may take the over whole place.

Does everyone have battle red towels? Those would stand out well. Just watching Inside the NFL and noticing how all the Steeler Terrible Towels stood out in that Broncos crowd....

You guys and gals probably thought of this already:
Spread the words out to the media so that we can see you on TV (wherever you are, the bar for example, not just at the game.)
TC should be able to pull some string.

Also we are staying at the Sheraton City...booked through PriceLine name your own price and that's what we got. Probably not what I would have picked on my own but got it for $65. We just booked one night with a plan to stay in Philly and DC the other two nights that we'll be there. Maybe...still deciding.

Hate to break it to ya, but it's closed.

Plenty of other bars in the Fells Point area, just around the corner from the old ESPN Zone.

Hello Texans Fans!

First, let me say I am enjoying the boards. You guys here seem like top notch fans. Well Done!

I am a transplant, having grown up in Baltimore and moved to Houston 6 years ago. I have adopted the Texans as my "second team" and had it not been for my Ravens being in your way, I'd be rooting for them right along side you.

If I may, I wanted to give you folks some advice when you make your trip to Baltimore.

1. Get ready to walk. There is a reason it's nicknamed Smalltimore. It's not like in Houston where going to the next neighborhood requires a 10-15 minute drive. Everything is within walking distance, or a very short cab ride.

2. Speaking of cabs, stick to Yellow Cab if at all possible. The city of Baltimore does a poor job with the cab enforcement. Yellow Cab does a good job policing themselves. The other cab companies will try and gouge you (not turning on meter, haggling a price, try and charge add-ons, etc) so be careful.

3. Avoid Harborplace (and Powerplant). If being a tourist is your thing and you're looking for the Gallery, only smaller and next to the water, then I suppose this is your place. It is possible to get a feel of the city and it's in the surrounding neighborhoods -- Fells Point (my old home and personal favorite), Canton, Federal Hill, Little Italy -- these are the places you want to explore if you want great food, a fun atmosphere, etc. I read some of you are going to meet up at Powerplant. Meh. You should expect popped collars, dudes wearing smedium Affliction shirts and very few over the age of 25. Maybe it's a good spot to meet, but go a few blocks south and east and you're in Fells Point.

4. If the weather says it's 40 that day, plan on it feeling like 30-35. The city sits next to a body of water that whips up the wind. Also, most of the stadium sits in the shade for most of the game.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! I am making the trip as well and cannot wait for Sunday!

Almost forgot ....

5. If you find yourself west of Russell Street, turn around. Quickly. You're basically on the set of The Wire and unless you have some yellow tops you plan on selling, you're in the wrong hood.

Getting a ticket for the game will not be a problem for, but the flight prices right now are ridiculous. Any other option?

Wish I could help.

I just got my flight right before the rush. Have you tried flights into Reagan National? It's only 45 minutes south of Baltimore in DC.

She's already been contacted by the Texans and they know where we will be. She's gonna also be posting on twitter where we all are hanging.
Should be a great time!!
