Yayyyyyy!

Quote:
HOUSTON -- The retractable roof at Reliant Stadium is repaired and fully operational again, five months after Hurricane Ike ripped huge holes in the top of one of this cityís signature structures.


11 News

Reliant Stadium was damaged by Hurricane Ike.
Mark Miller, the general manager of Reliant Park, said Friday that the five bow-tie shaped fabric panels destroyed in the storm have been replaced all thatís left for workers to do is plug water leaks.

I actually enjoyed the roof open for the cold and rainy days. Especially the Bears game, made it feel like actual football.

close the roof on days when expected temp is above 78 degrees, and leave it open every other day unless a turd floater is expected.

I love cool weather football!

I enjoyed the cold weather, too. And we're up in the 500s where the wind is blowing good! It just felt like football weather. We are too pampered in Houston sometimes. I can understand relief from the heat, but c'mon, the cold? We used to sit in the stands during HS football games when our lips were so frozen we could barely play our instruments, and we loved it!

Well done to the guys who've fixed it up. Hopefully we can have a nice easy season next year, without having to worry about the kind of off the field trauma that is never nice to see.

I agree, the Bears game was awesome, but close it at the first sign of heat....

If the almighty Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo would have been scheduled for November they would have had it repaired by then. But...it was just the Texans fans.

Default Re: Reliant Roof Repairs Nearly Finished

I'm kind of mixed about this. If we go back to the old "only in perfect weather open the roof" strategy, I think I might prefer the roof to be broken. haha.

Hopefully last year will convinec management to let hte weather vary a bit more and have the roof open more often.

I agree, we should only close it in cases of high temps or really bad weather. None of this "oh there's a 10% chance of rain so let's close the roof"

No kidding....there were more than a few games that they closed the roof on a lower temperature, that it should have been open.

I also have this to say.......
Why shouldn't the roof be opened on a humid day? Shouldn't we use our warm weather against a team that plays in cold weather and is not accustomed to the heat? As long as the sun is not shining directly on stands?

Probably due to the near death experience many of us on the board suffered during the 2005 season opener against the Steelers. I have rarely left a game early, and I left during the 3rd quarterd due to the fact that my hands were tingling from heat exhaustion.
I saw about 10 people being carted away by EMS due to that game. Its going to shine on the stands and especially the Bullpen reguardless.

Check out the picture below from the 3rd quarter in the Bullpen during that game:

My nose peeled for weeks and ol' Bob never offered us a thing to say "sorry."

I would buy a beer from a guy and then dunk our rally towels in the ice.

It got so bad that I just tipped a dollar or 2 to let me do it til I ran out of cash.

Still kinda bent about that and the "oops, oh well" attitude I got.

I forgot that you had field credentials that year. I know you had to walk over to the SEZ for some shade.

No, because it doesn't make a difference.

The sun was shining directly on the stands. I heard the logic that the weather would work against the Steelers. What actually happened is the fans with the exception of the SEZ had a near death experience, and the Steelers still kicked out butts, while wearing all black to boot.

Even funnier was that the Steelers had big cooling fans by their benches (which appeared to have cooling systems within them, too), and all our players had was the metal benches that were heated up by the sun.

It was a bonehead decision by someone in the FO.
