I forgot to report one Tailgate injury...

It was the second or third season. After the game and heading back to report for TUP, I stopped off to use a port-a-pot. Little did I know that if you catch your pinky finger in the door handle/lock in a funky manner, you can damn near rip it off... Unbeknownst to me, I had done that and not noticed until someone asked why there was a puddle of blood around my shoe...

After many weeks of therapy (both physical and mental), and band-aids I am happy to report that the pinky is doing fine...

I continued to report to the TUP several times afterward, but always remained cognizant of the dangers lurking in the port-a-pot...

Not an injury, but a release.

After 5 faithful tailgating seasons, never to miss a game - I was released to Dallas, now in my 2nd year in this city. Always hoping to end my tailgating career off 610, but for now I'll be playing in the pubs and dives of Dallas.

Better to have blood than something else around your shoes from the port-a-pot!

I've come close to falling off the coolers (standing on coolers stacked 2 high) at the tailgate on many occasions. Lately the crowd has been there to prevent it from being an ugly fall!

In season 1 or 2 we had a canopy flip over onto one of the members cars and it dented it pretty good...

Take two tailgates and call me in the morning. if it hasn't cleared up by then, repeat until all symptoms are gone.

If you were at the Bears/Texans game in Chicago 4 years ago, you would understand the meaning of COLD...I'm just hoping the game at GB this year is the same way...

First tailgate of the season and I'm already busting out the first-aid kit. Cut myself on a flagpole and then again reaching into my cooler for a beer. Yeah, you heard me right. I cut myself on the freaking ice in my coooler. I've since sent a letter to the Cuts Like a Knife Ice Company.

But unlike say an Ahman Green, I continued on with the tailgate and WILL be able to go next Thursday.

And I had a chair that bit the dust as well.

Seasons past, we've had canopies, chairs, and grills bite it.

I skinned up my knees and possibly broke a couple of fingers once slipping on the concrete playing football. I say possibly broke because I never went to the Dr. to find out.

We've had an unproperly secured canopy blow over and scratch up one of our trucks, another canopy took off and broke off one of our window flags. I've lost a bull logo magnet on the freeway.

The last game of the first season I had gotten food poisoning the day before the game, and still made it out, in line at 7:20, full tailgate, game and after tailgate. Didn't eat, tried to drink a beer and could only get about half of it down.

My Jeep broke down on 59 twice. The first time I got it started and made it to the tailgate, the 2nd time I had someone come get me, unloaded my vehicle and loaded theirs right there on the side of the freeway, and left the damn thing there.

Damn, didn't mean to write a book, but I guess 6 years of tailgating will do that.

Just signed a new canopy along with a Team Keg-a-que. Will be making their debut on Thursday 8-21-08 against Tampa Bay. In negotiations for 2 flag poles, but the GM says it may put us over the cap right now. May have to wait till around week 6. Will keep you posted. Oh by the way how many of you are in the blue lot????

I have been allocated away.

After one game being called up the big league for the Colts last season the team have decided to allocate me to NFL Europe, for some experience at grilling and partying pre and post game on a much smaller scale at the small hours of the morning due to the time difference, having spoke to head office they do see the potential here and have expressed a wish to call me up again sometime in the future.

We have had some serious incidents in our corner of Orange.
First...last game of the '06 season enroute from Katy to Reliant under cover of darkness (First In must be very early!), The Bull vanished from the back of our truck. #300 lbs of ice in him too. How does an item THAT big get away unseen? At 5am?? Folks at the Shell station still aren't talking.

Next, had to cut the 1st string chair from the squad last season due to offseason injury. It was packed in the truck for a non Texans event (I don't want to hear it) by careless adult kids and when it was asked to be put into play...it couldn't pull its part, but it pulled apart. It is missed, as it was part of our original tailgating team.
RIP cush lawn chair, my back misses you!

Then there was that September afternoon in 2004 that rests in TEXANS infamous history.
boom boom boom....out go the lights....

Man, that was a funny day! I remember people around me laughing because the lights went out at Reliant Stadium, of all places. It was even more amusing when I learned the cause.
