I don't think Southern Oklahoma is in any real danger.

This is not worse than Alicia. The center of the city will be fine.
Well, I broke out the chainsaws and repaired all I could after Rita, but I still didn't have power for 1 1/2 weeks after that storm. I wasn't in the direct path of the storm either, I'm located in northeast Harris County.

Yet another reason why living inside the loop is better. I don't recall ever losing power for more than a few hours.

Okay, I have seen posts and a report on CBS sportsline.com that their is a chance the game MIGHT be moved to Atlanta. If this in fact is the case (i think we'll know by 4PM) how would someone like me, living in Georgia, aquire tickets. I'll throw on my Ryans jersey and scream my ass of for the team...

ESPN radio is reporting that the game will be here Mon night if it can't be played Sunday.

I remember Alicia vividly. We just finished the last of the repairs from Rita damage this summer. I guess that is a good thing as we might have to do it again.

On the plus side, I'll be at the game if I have to swim there.

Apparently, there are reports that if Tina will just eat the damn cake...Ike will back off.

You'd just walk in. How could they even sell tickets to a game that nobody in Atlanta cares about?

What would that ticket price be? About $5?

Oooh! Oooh! They could do the whole Single A Baseball gimmick: Bring an abused pit bull or animal torture device...and get in for FREE!

I think that is highly irresponsible. Nonetheless, durting Alicia we didn't have powr for darn near a week, among many other issues. This storm also is packing a more spread out punch so inland areas may experience weather at least as bad, and maybe worse than Alicia.

Everybody is just regurgitating the report that came out in the paper this morning.

If there is a freaking 16+ storm surge that hits Galveston bay straight on, I just have a hard time seeing how the Texans could have a game even by Monday.

I'm just some guy on an internet message board, not an emergency management official. They're doing their jobs, but it's my opinion that most of you are overreacting. We're discussing the likelihood of the Texans-Ravens game being played, and I think you guys are in media frenzy mode.

+1. This is a pretty serious storm that very well may get even more dangerous as it approaches. Any thought of playing this game on Sunday in Houston should be scrapped.

Galveston is on an island in the Gulf of Mexico. Houston isn't.

that's interesting. Did not know that!!

Anyway, the point is that downtown Houston to downtown Galveston is only about 50 miles. Also the last time I checked, Galveston Bay is connected to the Houston Ship Channel which goes most of that 50 miles to inside the 610 Loop which then is connected to Buffalo Bayou which meets White Oak Bayou near the Main Street Bridge in downtown... Point being, we are essentially on the coast, we are not 200 miles inland like say Austin...
