Reliant must be made of fiberglass and aluminum or something.

Is this off-season or something? Man, I really hate the weather right now. Bob should sue the weather for this.

Sue the weather.

Say you work for 16 hours a day and you get a one hour break. Would you rather take that break after the 1st hour, or after the 8th hour?

If we make the playoffs after all this crap...

It will be a story-book year.

Texans suffer a huge loss in Pittsburgh to start the season, screwed out of a normal bye week, and then rattle off 15-straight games...and make the playoffs when they were supposedly in the toughest division in the NFL and expected to finish nowhere near the top.

Maybe this turns things around. Maybe...

The only thing I'm hoping for. That the city and team rally together for a storybook year.

Or maybe we go 5-11 because of the disruptions....

I guess that is why they play the games.

Regardless of damage, its hard to have a tailgate and football game with FEMA using the Relaint Parking lots to stage dozens of tractor trailer rigs.

In my opinion, that may be the only option to get the Reliant ready. The question is, will they be able to open the roof?

As far as fixing the roof, they don't stock those huge piece's of material at the Home Depot (correct me if I am wrong Wolf )





I would imagine there is a lead time of several weeks if not months on custom pieces like that. I don't know if they would want to play in the stadium with the pieces missing or not.

Now, if we had a stadium like this one, then we could go down to the Home Depot, pick up a few pieces of aluminum siding and be ready to roll.

What would the logistics be of using the Astrodome for Texans' football till Reliant is ready? Is there any reason it cannot be utilized?

The Astrodome would not be an option. It is dilapidated and generally a mess. The last time I stepped foot in it (during the construction of Reliant) the astroturf looked like worn out - outdoor carpet. The stadium stunk of mold. I doubt that it would even be healthy for the public to be in there.

Bummers...

There's not talk of tearing it down, or anything like that, is there?

All the paneling blew off the North side of the stadium directly over the Bullpen.

Guess now we can officially say "The Bullpen will blow the roof off the stadium".

The damage caused by Hurricane Ike to Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, is not deterring the team from its plans to host the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 5.

The result of the damage, however, might force the Texans to play the rest of the season with the roof open.

The stadium and its retractable roof are sound structurally and mechanically, according to the Houston Chronicle, but five Teflon-coated fiberglass roof panels more than 350 feet each were dislodged and will have to be repaired. Four of the five damaged roof panels are located above the playing surface.
