Default Re: What happens to sundays game if Ike comes??

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but with the intensity and the path of the anticipated storm, what makes you feel secure that there will be electricity, land line telephone or cell phone sevice to receive the game? That question hit me as a very realistic concern..........more realistic by the hour.

Default Re: What happens to sundays game if Ike comes??

I live in san Antonio. I emailed Houston Texan Radio 610 yesterday and asked if it would be live streamed on the net and today their reply is, "Sorry, but we are only allowed to stream 4 games this year and this weekend's game is not one of them." So live stream radio is also ruled out. If I remember right Houston is still in Texas right......? lol

You must be a rookie in more than one way to write that last statement. I'm a 1st responder...............the impact of this storm here in Houston will not begin to be felt until after midnight. I would hope that you have no one that depends on you acting in a responsible manner. They may not fare too well.

I was going to email my tickets and glad I did not as I do not see how they play on Monday given the early looks of Ike's impact. However, a football game may be a welcome distraction for Houstonians.

Lost power for about an hour. Absolutely no wind, rain, anything when it went out.

Back on for now.

According to a rep from CenterPoint Energy, the medical center and downtown are still with power because those areas are serviced by underground power lines. The areas serviced through overhead lines are almost all without power.

Reliant Stadium should have power, so I doubt the power issue would prevent the game from kicking off. Other concerns, perhaps, but not the electricity.

Looks like Reliant has damage and the game is postponed. Bummer.

Just now reading McClains blog and he mentioned the possibility of the game being played in Atlanta. If thats true, its a crock if you ask me, clear advantage to the Ravens not having to play in front of a hostile crowd. The should just make it a bye week for both teams and figure out something from there. The Texans shouldn't lose a home game because of mother nature.

I'll bet that doesn't happen. Just a hunch, nothing more. It shouldn't happen either for the reasons you mentioned. It's not like the end of the season with little wiggle room.

It's a bummer not only because that we will not play but we will not have a home game until Oct. 5th against the Colts.
