Do you guys think they will push the game up or back a couple of days?

I'm thinking we play Friday.

First, they will look at moving the game to an earlier date or a later date (a day earlier or later). If that doesn't work, they look at moving the game to a safer venue.

Well I am sure the NFL would have to decide by Wednesday what to do about it...logistics and all would need that much time to get in place...I am thinking that SA is being contacted about the use of the Alamo Dome...
Moving a game to a Friday isn't going to happen and move it back a day won't matter if it does indeed come Houston's way, so SA is most likely the only reasonable move, but then again, if they think they can pull the game off on Friday and still protect the teams...still a long shot

I just found out I might have a chance to go see the Cubs/Astros Sunday afternoon. Any word in Houston on the situation/scenarios?

As the NFL, I am sure they are working on any alternate plans, so rest assured, if one of the leagues says something about moving their game,the other will be close behind with the same thing....

Latest track heads it right toward Galveston. Could be, but if I were a betting man, I would be placing my bets on a Rita like track over toward the Golden Triangle or SW LA. These storms are notoroius for teasing Galveston and then making a northward turn at the end. It's going to be a close call though, and I think we will be testing the contraflow lanes round about Thursday with mass evacs out of the coastal counties.

Dunno if I agree with the notorious part...1900 may want to argue that point with you.
I will be watching the mass exodus from my lawn chair if it manifests, with my liquid refreshment.

Default Re: Hurricane Ike

Looking at the 2:00 models, my first thought was that this storm keeps shifting west. So hopefully (for us - Sorry Valley Texans), it continues the trend and keeps aiming further west as time goes by. We will be on the dirty side of the storm, but I really would like to avoid a direct hit.

Unfortunately, the most reliable model (GFDL) still has it aiming at us.

I think the valley needs to take one for the team (the Texans) and have it head there.
