Default Game attendence

This is totally not a who is a better fan thread. I am just curious. I am pretty sure aj has been to every Houston game for like 35 years so he probably owns attendance. I'm just curious how many folks have been to every Texans game.

To be clear again, watching at home, in a sports bar, whatever is not a lessor fan. That is not what this is about.

This past year is the first time I have been to a Texans game. I went to 5 or 6 games. Hopefully I can get season tickets this year.

I've been to every game for the past three years, minus military duties conflicts once or twice, and one or two games prior to that to get the addiction.

Default Re: Game attendence

I guess it was implied but to make it explicit I have been to every Texans game so far.

Really, really want to make clear that isn't a claim of better fandom. I am just curious how many delusional people like me are out there.

Default Re: Game attendence

I've missed three games.

I went to the game 2 days before my due date with my daughter. The usher for our section was rather scared because I was huge. I missed the game right after that.

I missed a game because I was in a free place in Hawaii with some friends.

I missed a preseason game last year because my daughter was in Texas Childrens Hospital due to a staph infection. She got better.

Cak, despite the fact that I have been able to make few games in the past couple of years (made all of them in the first 5 years), I still consider myself delusional.

Having spoken to many die hard fans over the years, I would suspect that you and aj are a truly rare "delusional" bird............in a good way!

I have been to every regular season game but 1..... missed one in 2009 when i shattered my elbow, watched from the parking lot in a recliner. I have NEVER been to a preseason game, I always sell the tickets for those to try and make some of the money back for the regular season games.

Not me. Moved here in 03 and made about 3 games that year. Since then, I have missed 4 home games (1 due to a wedding and 3 due to law school exams).

I am definitely dillusional as well, I just haven't made as many games as you guys.

I make a couple of games per year. I just haven't been able to make more than that between living out of town, having young children, and work responsibilities. But I never, ever......ever ever ever miss a game on TV. Pre-season, work, vacation, blackouts and subsequent DirecTV one day payments, whatever it takes. I don't miss a miserable minute...lol. I have never missed a kickoff in person or left a game at Reliant early either.

None, because Houston is 350 miles away and I can't afford that kind of trip for a football game.

Default Re: Game attendence

I've been to 1 game a year since 2006. Not necessarily home games.

So far, they've won one game that I've been to and after that game we won, a car came flying out of an apartment complex and t-boned the rental car I was driving knocking me into oncoming traffic and then sped off.

I'm starting to think I'm bad luck and I'm considering not going to any games this year.

Been to 4 games...
Don't remember the first one--to be honest, in `02 I think.

Last year's MNF vs Ravens
Year before's MNF vs Titans
Year before vs Bears
Can't remember the first one

Took my son to all of them...had an awesome time!
Can't beat a $72 hotdog!

Thanks Bob!
