Default Re: Open The Roof At Night Please!!!!!

Early in the season the roof needs to be closed, that A/C is some mega relief after tailgating in the heat all morning. Now this time a year I am fine with it being open and really wouldn't mind how cold it got.

If the weather holds like it's doing right now, I dont see how they couldn't keep the roof open.

The heat for a Sept. home opener is another story however.

Go Texans
Ditto all around. Pitt was a mess, but a FORECAST or 50-80 is a little broad.

You can add layers for cold. There's only so much clothing you can remove before your fellow fans start complaining

Agreed, I was at the Pittsburgh game.....on the sunny side, but under the bleacher part. It was really hot where we were and couldn't imagine being directly in the sun that day.

Is it sad that the local baseball team has a better roof policy then the local football team?

If it were the Texans Cheerleaders removing articles of apparel I probably wouldn't object to terribly much (unless my wife were present).

Unless of course somebody were to knock out the power, say with a balloon or something.

This I've always wondered. Howcome you people use the Fahrenheit scale but still refer to freezing as 'sub-zero'? Closet Celcius fans?

Usually we say "below freezing". When we say "sub-zero", we mean below 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

If someone says "sub-zero" to mean "below freezing", then they made a mistake.

The 'below 50 limit' is the one that has me has me laughing. We should all move to Green Bay. I don't think they have a 'below 50 limit' up there.
Now now, we must understand the sensitivity the organization has towards it's customers. A marketing company with a football division will always consider the comfort level of it's patrons.

The roof should be open for tonight's game if the weather stays the same. If it rains then they can go ahead and close it but there's no reason to close the roof for tonight's game.
