Default Hey Bull Pen...better pray for a cold front!

With the roof open tomorrow, and today's high at roughly 90 degrees, you are gonna bake down there. This may end up being Pittsburg 2.0!

Glad my seats are up in the nose bleeds in the shade!

Good luck tomorrow...and may the Texans Kick the Colts Arses...

I am very very glad that the Chronicle did their article today about preparing for the open roof. Everything in that article is a response to that Pittsburgh game.

I did a mini blog post about it earlier in the week.

Oh, and as a mini-note, as I recall correctly, the Colts will have more of the direct sun than the Texans will.

Opposing teams more so for the 3:05 games.

Default Re: Hey Bull Pen...better pray for a cold front!

this early in the season and with Reliant stadium's orientation to the sun the shade travels equally across the field, sideline to sideline. So both teams bench's receive the same amount of sun, literally IMO. Later in the season it goes a bit more shade on the home side. But honestly, not enough to even talk about.

the Bullpen section is going to bake.

Glad I could help you out SheTexan. I have been worried about you all week. I knew you were going to be there, no matter what. And I am glad that one of the TEXANS best fans is using my seats.

NO, it's not!! Football is suppose to be fun, and it's not much fun baking in an oven, and that's exactly what the lower level of Reliant is like. There is NO circulation at all down there, and the sun beats off those blue seats, and all the metal. If Reliant was an open venue stadium it would be different. Intense heat with little air circulation makes people SICK!! THAT, my friend, is NOT what football is suppose to be!! We've been discussing this issue for 7 years now, and nothing has changed. You either like it or you don't. As for myself, I just adjust.

Stay out of the sun, SheTexan. I would have to agree with your retort. The truth is that the Texans miscalculated some important things when building Reliant. With all the supposed orientation calculations, during the noon games, the home team will be frying as much as the visitors, not to mention many of the fans. So much has been made of the configuration of the building making for an extremely loud environment. That's true because of its verticality, with the sound bouncing from side to side. But that same verticality essentially makes it impractical as an "outdoor" stadium. True outdoor stadiums are widely flared from the center. This is to allow for free airflow especially in hot, stagnant, humid environment. The vertical construction essentially acts as a heat reflector/magnifier/concentrator, while acting to foil the heat dissipation. Have you ever noticed how much time the smoke from the pyrotechnics when substantial hang around even when the roof is open? So goes the heat.

And that's all you can do. I get the heat. I sat in the NEZ for 4 years, wearing a regulation Texans helmet (the real deal) and I sat there and suffered in it for 4 years, every game 'til the clock said 0:00. I might be a bit more acclimated to it since I work in it all summer long, but that doesn't make it any less miserable.

I sat there because those were my seats. It was either that or go stand by the beer line where there's a little tv up on the wall. Well, I didn't pay a boat load of money to watch the game on tv. I could do that at home and have a much fatter bank account. So I chose to suffer through it. I mean, the players have to play in it with all that equipment on, I think I can sit there for 3 hours. But that's just me.

Then I adjusted and moved to the SEZ. No sun ever for me.

Maybe they'll run the AC some during the game? It might knock the temp down a degree or two and after all, cold air sinks, so if there's no circulation the cooler air should stay within the stadium somewhat...
maybe??? (<<< wishful thinking).

According to today's errrrrrrrrr Saturday's Chronicle the air will be on in the concourses...

On another note, CnD was spot on his assessment of the design. Had the roof not been needed, the stadium would have been flared more. Also, where the 4x "super-columns" (supports for the roof trusses) would have been open allowing all four corners to creat more air flow...

Leaving Austin shortly and have my fingers crossed for some cloud cover. I get the sun this time of the year at 12:30ish through the end of the game.

Looking out there now, there is not a cloud in the sky. The 610 announcers were saying that there is a nice breeze today. Unfortunately, that will not translate well to the seating and field inside the stadium.

Default Re: Hey Bull Pen...better pray for a cold front!

game should have been moved to Rice stadium. I guess money and who gets it was at the root of that decision.

that said, I don't think it'll be warm until the second half. by then you will:

a) be too drunk to care
b) Texans will be ahead and you won't care about the heat
c) Colts will be spanking us and you will bitching about everything.

Wasn't too bad in the Bullpen today. Lots of clouds kept the sun off of us for a while. It was hot when the clouds moved on though. At least we didn't bake the entire game.....

I think that we are the biggest crybabies in the league now. We are crying about the heat? If we were Green Bay fans we would be complaining about the cold? If you are in direct sunlight for most of the game just drink a alot of water....drinking to much beer in that heat will turn on you. The beer/water guys seemed to have a lot of beer for the colts game but they couldn't keep the water coming. Games like the Colts game is more reason for the NFL to give us 3:15 starts but until we start winning regularly we won't be seeing that to much.
