And welcome LondonTex - it's a pretty friendly bunch around here. As a Brit (now relocated to Canada) myself I started coming here a few years back, and everyone has always been most helpful - especially during the 'annoying newbie to football' stage.

Just watch out for characters like Brakos and Bill.

Sure did - only been out in the great frozen north for 3 years. Started watching Houston (via the internet mostly!) back in 2005.

In fact I remember going to the NYG-Dolphins game at Wembley (the first NFL game there in this new tradition), and walking past a group of 2 Titans fans and a Colts fan who muttered something about "What a poor guy" whilst I walked past with my Texans jersey on...

Houston is a great city, but its crucial you have a tour guide or really good inside info on where to stay, restaurants, and nightlife. I know several Brits that moved here for oil and gas and some married my local friends and haven't looked back. They seem to like it here alot, or at least the women... Haha.

Cool! Before I got married I lived in New brunswick for a while with my ex... I loved Canada and have been several times... Just never out west.

Lol re: the jersey - well judging by NFLUK there aren't many UK Texans fans around..... Just wait till we win a SB and then all of a sudden millions of new Uk fans will spring up lol....

I need to try and sort out a Texans jersey before this years IS game.... I still have some other jerseys but refuse to wear em since I went from casual fan to having a team.

Well I can see why it would be appealing to move to the state of Texas...Especially sports wise, weather wise and gal wise.... Then there is the natural resources .. .. I assume you've ensured your British friends have chosen the Texans over the cowgirls?

If I can make it to a game what's the best area to get tickets..... Whats tailgates like etc?
Best 3 players (in your opinion)


Thanks

Sorry...we're not really half keen on Newbies. On your bike!





1. Houstonians are warm and fuzzy and get along with MOST people with the exception of Dallas Cowboy fans.

2. Tailgates RULE.

3. Best players? Andre, Arian and WATT!

Also, Raging Bull always does a great job. As far as ticket availability, it's going to depend on the game. If we're playing a scrub team the tickets will be easier to come by and will be cheaper. If we're playing a marquee type (Packers, Ravens, etc.) they will be in short supply and pretty expensive.
If you're going tailgating make sure to stop by there, they'll welcome you with open arms. When I went for the 49ers game they showed me around and introduced me to people from the boards, they're awesome, you won't be disappointed.

Never been to NB. That said West and East coast Canada and USA are such hugely different places - it's really stunning the differences you see in the people, and geography.
