Well, I don't spend a small fortune on tickets so I can get a cheap whatever that you could get at Wal-Mart for $5? Of course you don't have to buy tickets. That doesn't even make sense. You're not going to buy tickets any more 'cause you don't like the gift they give?

I couldn't care less what they give us, though the flag was nice, I only care about the thing I spent a boat load of money on FIVE MONTHS AGO finally getting into my hands. If the Texans want to throw a cheap something in there, who cares? Thanks I guess, but I have a notebook, I have a flag (again even though that was nice), I have what they're giving this year. What do you expect them to give away to 20,000 or more account holders? A new gas grill?

That they're giving anything at all is a nice gesture. Again, they could just send you your tickets in an envelope and be done with it. That's probably a good quarter million they wouldn't have to spend on the gift and shipping it.

Package arrived at 12:20 today. Lots of white jersey days early in the season. As far as the gift, it's the thought that counts.

YES!!!!

Tickets in Hand!!!!


And the gift is pretty cool. It'll be interesting to see if the cupholder works though. Maybe I should try it out now. Good as an excuse as any to pop open a beer.

I never suggested that I was not buying tickets because of the gift I was saying your "anything they give us is nice" attitude does not translate when we pay as you said "a small fortune".

Again, I was not complaining about the gift I am just not excited.
As with the year we all got the flag I was really excited about getting it, of course I am more excited about getting the tickets but its fun to see what the gift they give us each year is.

WOOHOO!!! Just got home from work a bit ago and there was a Fed Ex package awaiting! Don't know what I think about the gift, I like it pretty much, will have to test it out and see. It was great getting the tix too!

I like the gift. It isn't anything I would buy myself, it is different, it is clever in it's own way, it will be useful at home if not at the games, the tickets are included, it means football is almost here, and it isn't a Trapper Keeper. What more could a Texan Fan want?

Happier to see the tix than the gift. It's definitely a "meh" object. The fact that I bought a "lesser version" from Kroger months ago doesn't make this thing that exciting for me personally.

As for the "they don't have to send you anything" response, no they don't. But they aren't the only one of 32 teams that does either.

As long as it's something "unique" each year, I can live with it.

I would not have bought the gift for myself but I will definitely use it. It actually has some cool features. Also stoked that in our MNF against Titans we will be sporting the RED THREADS.

Personally, I love it. As for it not being for everyday use....I don't necessarily agree. It can be used elsewhere.

I think it's better than the binders and day planners they send most years. I don't think as many will hate it unless they wanted a cheerleader as a gift. Not that I wouldn't have been pleased with that gift either.

Just sell her two PSLs under her name. I did that with my father so we could both get gifts.
