Hey BigWig. Count AustinTexansFan +1 (maybe +3 but not sure yet). By the way I also cancelled Time Warner and subscribed to Directv and they are giving a great deal right now. I am going to get Sunday Ticket and Superfan for 69 a month (TOTAL). Toooooooo good to pass up.

I may be part of AustinTexansFan possible +3, not sure if I am one of the ones he was talking about as we having been discussing getting together.

But, wanted to make sure that you guys get me on the list, that's right Hardcore Texan +1 (the wife) will be in attendance. I am in the process of locking down a babysitter, that would be the only show stopper.

We are freakin' pumped to hang out with everyone, scream, yell, and be merry.



edit: Babysitter confirmed, it will be on and poppin'.

One is almost 10 and the other is a toddler, if they had a playscape or something, I would go for it.....my wife knows I won't be any good to her because I don't want to miss a single play, and she wants to pay attention too. It's all good, the babysitter has called back to confirm. We will be there about 11:15 - 11:30 am.

I should be able to make it on the 16th. Would like to see what happens if Carr gets in the game. I went to check out Third Base today. Looks better than the Saxon Pub. Food on the menu looks pretty cheap. Saxon Pub had free hot dogs and chips, but even that couldn't draw them in since the Texans were playing so poorly. So, count me in for the 16th.

It's on 6th street going past West Lynn, heading towards Mopac. It'll say The Third Base in green letters on a white sign. Just stay on 6th Strret heading towards the left hand side turnoff to go on Mopac heading south. It's right there on the left hand side. Hope this helps.

So, if I am coming down Mopac southbound, I am guessing I exit 5th street, if I remember correctly that's the only exit southbound. It's been awhile. And from 5th street east bound I can access the parking garage? or do I have to flip a u-turn and park off os sixth? anyone? buehler?

Well, since I live southwest I'm taking Mopac heading north and getting off on the 5th Street exit. You can stay on 5th street and then make a left hand turn to head onto 6th street. Once on 6th street just hang in the left hand lane til you see the sign for The Third Base. It's right before the left hand turn off to go on Mopac heading south. The directions I gave you earlier were if you were on Congress downtown. Then you would make a left onto 6th street, taking it all the way down (staying on the farthest lane on the left). Then you'd see the sign for The Third Base. It's actually pretty simple to find.

Southbound Mopac exit 5th.

Take your first left - between Hartland Plaza (office building) and El Arroyo Restaurant.

Go 100 yards to the light and take a left and hug the curb as you will be taking an immediate left into 3rd Base.

Take an immediate right and find parking on the drive parallelig the bar or go into the garage.

I would guess that it seats 150 comfortably and can handle plenty more. Plenty of TV's for every viewing angle.

Just come. If it's too small, we'll find another place to linger at for next week or something. We have to test drive this and make our presence known in Austin. Be there or be square.

Easily 150. I can't say that they're all gonna be Texans fans though. There are 5 "viewing zones", and I believe 3B plans to show 5 different games. Even so...having been there for a few sporting event watch parties, I have never been disappointed.

Just come on out. The idea behind the watch list, from my perspective, is so that we can inform 3B and they can prepare accordingly.

I really, REALLY hope that this weekend we show 3B that the Texans Fans here in Austin are: a) for real, and b) a revenue-generating force for those guys. Why (b)? Well, when (b) happens, possibilities open up.

See ya,
Rick

TV-RADIO NOTEBOOK
Austin drops Texans in favor of Titans


By DAVID BARRON
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle

The eyes of Austin on Sunday will be upon Vince Young and the Tennessee Titans, not Matt Schaub and the Texans, which shows you how far the Texans have to go in rebuilding their image.

KEYE, the CBS owned-and-operated station in Austin, opted for Titans-Jaguars rather than Chiefs-Texans because viewership of the average Titans game was 60 percent higher than viewership for the average Texans game last year, said program director Gary Vinson.

"For 4 1/2 years, we aired every single Texans game we could, no matter how bad it got," Vinson said. "When Vince went to the Titans, we started getting tons of requests from people who wanted to see him. So we started going back and forth, and the difference was significant."

Texans fans in Austin are, not surprisingly, up in arms. One has started a Web site: www://keye42sucks.com.

Vinson, however, answers to advertisers as well as viewers, and 54,800 households (the average viewing audience for run-of-the-mill Titans games last year) beats 33,731 households (the average for run-of-the-mill Texans games).

Texans spokesman Tony Wylie described KEYE's decision as "a disservice to the Texans fans in Austin. We know it's the station manager's choice, and we hope (KEYE) elects to air our games in the future."

Every other CBS market in Texas will get the Chiefs-Texans game except Dallas-Fort Worth and Wichita Falls, which will get the Dolphins-Redskins.

However, even though your local NFL team is getting dissed in the capital city, TV geeks and Texans fans can take heart in this coda: The only CBS game this weekend that will not be broadcast in HDTV is Titans-Jaguars. So there.
