    Ok, I am sitting in Green Bay and it is freaking cold this a.m. Right now, the wind chill is -19 degrees. Looks like it will "warm up" to 12 degrees at kickoff and 17 degrees by game's end - both with lower single digit wind chills.

    This should be a close game and it is nice to see the local press giving us pretty good coverage...especially AJ.

    It is nice to see so many Texans fans here - I have come across many in the hotel and around town. For an expansion team, we will be nicely represented.

    Add to that, the Packers D has intercepted 17 to their opponents 10, and both teams have collected a lame 20 sacks each.

    It's a very even match, but the Packers have us by the weather. I really hope they are fired up today, in every sense of the phrase.

    I'm ready for this game. After seeing a game live, its going to be weird watching it on TV. Now I know why going to NFL games is so addictive.

    Mandatory Check in.

    I'm awake, cold and well fed.

    One guy who won't be cold today is Super Steve Slaton - Gash'em Steve!

    Looking out for a big game from The Weatherman and stevie wonder.

    I really want Mario to have a big time performance. I think the Packer OT's are not up to snuff this year and he can take advantage of that.

    Really I think the wheels have just come off this year. Both clifton and tauscher are probowl tackles that went last year (I'm pretty sure).

    I certainly hope it doesn't happen but this is one game, one situation this season where the Texans would have a perfect excuse(s) to lay a giant egg.

    Super Mario is licking his chops knowing that a big time performance today can get him back in the hunt for the 08 sack king title :)

    Just like the disclaimers of internet "self-serve" stock investment sites always flash up on their TV commercials: "Past results do not ensure future performance:winky:."
