Default And I thought Houston was a Football Town ?

Houston was the second-lowest rated market in the country for Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast on NBC, topping only Salt Lake City among the 56 major markets measured by Nielsen Media Research.

Too bad for those that missed it - actually was a pretty good game.

It's a fairweather town, and when coupled with the fact that nobody from the region was in the game I don't see why anybody is surprised by this.

Maybe because a lot of Houston hates the Pittsburgh Steelers?
I know when I first moved to Corpus Christi I didn't even watch the SB because it was Pitt versus Seattle. I went fishing that year.

Then they should have watched and cheered for the Cardinals. There is no excuse for Houston to be such a poor sports town when it comes to fans, etc....of course not the people here.

That's what I did this year. I thought for sure at worst it would go to OT when Fitz scored. Great game and I'm glad I didn't miss it.

This is the first year in long time that I followed the playoffs thru to SB. Once Texans out, I may turn on a game for a play or so then watch SB with friends. I have been rooting for Cards and Warner for last two months. Thought they won until that DB slipped down.

Well I knew of at least 5 parties that were going to have 15 people plus there, then add the fact we have tons of sports bars, even though numbers are hard to dispute, those are just tv's turned into the game, has no bearing of how many fans actually watched it...

Like at every game, the Texans have "SOLD OUT" 70 straight....sure, how many actual games has the place been full the last 3 years though....Same thing..

I don't put much stock into it, Houston might have had bigger SB parties across town? One TV with a big crowd at the party would skew the ratings.

McNair is lucky, but as big of a city as Houston is (and considering all the outlying areas) there should be a lot more fan support for the Texans.

I personally don't meet many people in everyday life here who would consider themselves Texan "fans". Most people I know really don't care about them.

When I see a Texans logo on the back of someones truck or if I see someone wearing a Texans hat I always wonder if it's someone on this board.

That's pretty sad if you think about what that means.

Default Re: And I thought Houston was a Football Town ?

Just because we are football fans doesn't mean we watch every single game on the TV even if it is the Super Bowl. There was not a team from this area or this state. Come on it was the Cardinals. You know the team that has not won anything since dirt was discovered.

How many of you actually thought it would be a blow out for the Steelers? Not to many thought the Cards actually had a chance. Almost everyone in the media was predicting the Steelers to win. The fact that it turned out to actually be a pretty good game (besides the fact that the refs looked like they wanted Pit to win) was probably a surprise to a lot of people.

Draft Day is better then the Super Bowl, unless your team wins the game.
