    I am making the trip in from Austin to attend Saturday's practice. I have been to a game before, but never for something like this. Is there anything specific I need to know to make it easy? Such as do I need to be there super early, or just a bit before?

    Thanks for your help!

    Saturday will be NUTS!! I know people who intend to be there a couple hours early, just to get a GOOD spot on the bleachers. Take a camera, no video, and anything you might want autographed. Sometimes the guys walk over to the fense and sign autographs, sometimes not, so that's a chance thing.

    Gonna be HOT, so be smart!!

    Or on the other side of the field.

    I've never had a problem standing. After a while people start leaving and seats come available. But during the early to mid part it's packed.

    Am I allowed to bring water in? I have lived in Texas all my life so I can deal with the heat (especially early in the morning) with some water

    It says on the tickets no food or drink. However, I think they may let it slide. I know in the past they had a tent with fans & water that was free.

    I picked up tickets online for free with a row and seat number, is it a free for all or is it actually controlled?

    Nothing reserved. You may not even get a seat.

    I've been twice and have no intention of ever going back. It gets pretty crowded.

    I didn't even realize this until I read the Chronicle, but Rick Perry's "National Prayer Rally" is being held at Reliant Stadium on Saturday. Does anyone know how this will effect parking and such?

    I know that the purple lot on McKee is used for the open practice parking.

    They sell water and soda inside. I think there is a tent near the north side of the stands that has cups of water for free. I usually buy 2 bottled waters ($7) and that lasts me the entire practice.

    I went last year on a Saturday and it wasn't that bad, so I wasn't going to get there until 8:00. Am I making a mistake?
