Default Please don't waste your tickets

I know that some folks don't want to go to the upcoming games because they are disgusted with the team.

And others can't go because of the holidays. Or because they want to be with their families.

Please consider selling or giving your tickets away.

I put various ways to do this in one place in this blog post in the Chronic.

You see, I would like people to be sitting around me, and I don't like the sensation that all the seats around me are empty, like I didn't bathe or something.

Ticket brokers should be dumping holiday tickets for less money, so consider using these upcoming games as a chance to take someone to a game who has never been.

The NFL totally screwed the Texans in putting together a home schedule that was massively front and back loaded. It was decidedly uncool for the fans, and not terribly conducive to winning. It wasn't the Texans only problem this season, but I think it factors in.

Just a thought.

My cousin and I knew a couple of months ago that we were not going to make it to the Christmas Eve game so we gave them to one of the big shots at the office. Got a free steak dinner out of it. Probably couldn't do any better on e-bay.

Nice comment.

The Texans are the only team in the league that had a stretch of 6 of 8 games on the road with three in a row on the road in the middle.

The only team.

You may call it an excuse, but it is just a fact.

The only factory I know that is running overtime is the Perpetual Mr. Grumpy Pants factory.

Oh so true!

This place is more negative than any other site on the internet I think. I want to win as much as anybody, but let's keep things in perspective too...especially at this time of year.

Go Texans!

Default Re: Please don't waste your tickets

If you are not going to use your tickets, for whatever reason - see about giving them away or donating them to underpriveledged kids, whatever.

Do something positive with them, especially being the holidays...

I think making a kid happy is way more important than any of the other petty crap displayed on this board...

Too bad they won't let walk up go in, as I think the place will be 1/3 empty. Bad team and awful schedule do not go well together !!

Check out my blog post.

Last year the week of games, the ticket brokers were selling tickets on upper levels at serious discount. They just wanted to be done with them.

There are often kind people on the MB that sell their tickets for face or less. Keep checking that forum.

Stubhub closer to the date of the game sometimes have them at a discount. But then you have to go to a downtown location a couple hours before the game to get them and you miss quality tailgating time.

The Texans lose regardless of where they play or at what time. So why not schedule them around to make it more benefical to the entire league as a whole? It is just smart business, the Texans are not worth watching for even a Texans fan.

Well for the players it is a good schedule, they can be home for the holidays, even though we are a bit put out by it, but none the less, I wil lbe there 6:00am both games...Not like there's a whole heck of a lot of stuff going on at 6:00am that a good tailgate festivus doesn't beat.

I never waste my tickets. I always go. To see a great team play against us is still very enjoyable for me. I sit in the bull pen and will cheer and boo as needed. The whole Texan experience is what you get from the game. Drink a few beers and have some good food and laugh and live it up before hand. Then go watch a good game (colts) and head home afterward. It sure beats the heck out of doing nothing but laying around on a sunday and being a bum!!
