The stadium is really close to the water, so it probably won't be all that hot.

Alright.... For ALL you people willing people that want to go to JAX,
apparenly "that smell" comes from a papermill... I think that explanation comes from "Mootini" who is a good friend of "TexansTalk.com"

My flight is booked and I will probably stay where I did last year since the guys stayed there too. I am still searching for a single ticket, but I normally don't have a huge issue finding tickets in Jacksonville.

Really??? Have you ever been to JAX???

Whenever you land, you get a terrible smell. There's not a lot to do with the exception of "the Landing", Jacksonville Beach or Amelia Island.

That said, I mean no offense to our long-time Jaguars Mootini. He's a cool cat and he explained that "the smell" is a nearby paper plant or something like that!!!

Some other guys did the drive from Houston last year and they said it wasn't bad. I have booked my hotel room for this trip so I am almost finished. Last year I had so much fun in Jacksonville (surprisingly).

That must be something near the airport. I have driven through there a few times and never smelled anything foul or ever had the impression that Jax is a polluted city.

Also we (people from Houston) have no room to make fun of another city for foul odor ..lol. At least people from where I grew up as a kid (La Porte, Deer Park, Stinkadena) where odor and yellow/brown clouds were the norm.

I always had a real bad impression of the Jags and their fans because of the internet, however I was pleasantly surprised by the stadium and atmosphere there.

BTW, I am now not sure I am going to make this game. I just got offered a 10 day all inclusive/paid stay down in the Keys. All my buddy wants me to do is bring my boat down there and taxi some of our friends to some islands and snorkeling areas. I have never been to the Keys and am probably going to take him up on that deal. The unfortunate part is these 10 days include the first 2 NFL weekends. However the good news is we are playing the Dolphins in week 1 so I know that game will be on regular TV in the Keys.

I could leave a day early and make the Jags game but that will be a lot of driving. Jax is about 2.5 hours north from where I now live and I will be coming back from the Keys (about 6 hours south).

The Airport is way less than 15 miles from "downtown" JAX.

We built a Federal Courthouse in dowtown JAX so I was flying there once a week for about 18 months and believe me, there was a disticnt nastiness smell (papermill or not). Am I suggesting that it's pollution and does the city of Houston have any room to talk? Heck to the NO!!! The smell reminds me of certain drives thru Luling when that mill is going off... Samething, only constant.

The Fans?? Ask Joe about how "nice" their fans are by trying to steal (and I believe successfully) Joe's hat.

*Disclaimer* This in no way means to insult Mootini, who again, has been a longtime member and contributor.
