Hear ya and understand. I bought 6 tickets to the Astros scheduled for Friday and Saturday months ago, and then I have 6 season tickets to the Texans.

It looks like $600 is gone, down the drain. But, considering what people are going through in Houston living through this hurricane, it really is inconsequential.

Wishing the best for everyone in Houston and surrounding areas.

Do you think it is a coincidence that Pacman is now in TX and the increase chances for it to rain?

The Cubs and Astros are scheduled to open a three-game series Friday at Minute Maid Park. There was talk about having the Cubs and Astros play a day game Friday instead of a night game, but all plans are on hold.

The Cubs expected to make an official announcement prior to Thursday's game against the Cardinals. The Astros will make an announcement soon, an MLB official said."

Actuallly, the series hasn't been postponed yet, just Friday's game.

I will use Roger goddell's words

Quote:
We’re looking at alternatives if the storm is severe enough that it would prevent us from playing, whether that’s damage to the stadium, or fans not being able to get to the stadium, or whether, frankly, there’s just higher priorities in that community than playing a football game. We understand our place in the community, and we understand the first priority is public safety. We would not do anything to stress emergency workers and law enforcement workers from doing their job.”

Tough cookies. If those p*ssies refuse to take an earlier flight, that's on the Cubs.

Coming from the team that's forced other teams to deal with the logistics of a night game in one city followed by a day game at Wrigley for the last ninety years, I consider it poetic justice.

Probably the best thing to do is play these games later after Ike has passed and the damaged is assessed. I am talking about the Astros and the Texans.

People (including players) putting there lives at risk for a game just seems pointless when the games could be played at a later date.

Besides, more fans will be there if played at a later date anyway.

I bet they will reschedule.

I'm with you on playing a later date - makes sense all the way around. However, I wouldn't think getting a flight is difficult considering they charter their own..

I just got word from a good friend of mine who is in charge of the security of Reliant Stadium and he said that the Texans and the NFL has not made a decision yet and are waiting to release their plan either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

From all indication he has, the game will be played in Houston and will be played either Sunday afternoon or Monday night.

Maybe not directly from the storm on Monday. But, what about public services, including Police, Fire, and EMS being available?

Further, you are assuming once this storm blows through, everything will be just fine to hold and play a game. In addition, you are assuming there will be enough fans to attend to make it worth while.

It takes a lot of time and effort to do these events.

There's storms. And then there's STORMS.

We don't know which one this is going to be. When they start talking storm surges like Carla, that is outside my frame of reference as someone who lived on the coast and in Houston for many years.

If Houston gets a direct hit with significant winds, we could be without power for days into weeks.

This is a large freaking storm. Bigger than Katrina. If people get in trouble,it's going to be a while before the storm clears the area to go help peoples.
