    I know it's only Pre Season, but I'm still excited. We have to go thru Pre Season before we can get to the regular season. At least the Tailgating is for real. Looking forward to the entire afternoon and evening. Well all except for the HEAT.

    I was thinking about starting a thread like this.

    Yea, finally. Just 10 hrs until I arrive at the stadium. Today will be a total football day for me, as I am helping take pictures and sell coupon books until 2:30 for my son's high school team. Then off to the stadium.

    I will need a cold beer by then.

    Good luck to the Texans today and here's hoping for a fun time for all and NO INJURIES!!! :toast2:

    I am super envious. I will not be able to see the game until 10pm Sunday; which really means Monday some time (Damn you DTV!). Hopefully our 1st Teams make solid plays and I can catch a glimpse on SportsCenter.

    Have a great gameday people!

    I got lucky, 3 tickets fell into my lap last night. I'm taking my daughters, sitting close to the bullpen. Still trying to face the reality that it's actually gameday,lol.

    I'll be at Kid Rock for this one, BP. Please say "Hi" to the tall blonde with the #40 jersey in my seats. She's a great gal (and single) and is excited about the game.

    Well, just come on over to the Bullpen and meet a lot of TT members. A lot of us are in the lower section of 116 or 117. Also a lot of vagabonds that sneak in just cause they can't resist!! We love um all though!!

    Don't know how old your daughters are, but, both my granddaughters will be there. They are 10 and 11. Also my almost 9 y/o grandson. Come on by and say HI!!!

    Houston, again.
    That is the absolute best age for a boy. They are so much fun at that time. I envy you, I only had one child, a boy, who is now 31 and lives in Alaska. Enjoy it while you can.

    I think I saw NFLN was having a replay at 4:00 Sunday (then again at 9:00 and more later in the week) if my DishTV search wasn't lying.

    Have fun you guys. No way I could do it. Tailgating in the middle afternoon in August. On asphalt no less where the heat reflects back. You guys are diehards!

    Stuck at work pushing paper. About to leave, it's going to be weird being a late arrival. Not used to that.
