    I would hope they choose.

    That kind of spirit and determination is contagious.

    Bullpen and everyone else who is still around at the beginning of the 4th quarter. If there is one thing this team still needs, it is spirit and fire from the fans.:fans:

    I swapped tickets with someone, so I will be sitting 3 rows behind the Texans bench though if things are like they are in the past, more on the defensive players' side.

    I'll try to make that happen behind the bench.

    We'll be sitting a few rows back behind the Bears' bench. Nothing like doing it in enemy territory!! ha ha

    I am bringing my in-laws to the game on Saturday for their 40th Anniversary. They have lived in Austin for decades, but they are from Chicago. Like myself, they will have their hand up.

    I will be holding up 5 at midnight Maryland time. When the NFLN rebroadcasts the game.

    I have also taken the liberty of reposting the original thread on the Texans website BB. I hope that more people pick up on this tradition and the entire stadium shows support.

    I've had season tickets to Wake football for the past 5 years. Watching the entire stadium hold up five and give a few minutes of silent tribute was absolutely amazing. Still gives me chills. I know Abbate would appreciate the support.

    I sit on the opposite side of the bullpen in the front row. You know, the shady seats.:shades: But anyways, I will tell everyone about this story. Maybe if we start at both ends, somehow it might reach everyone on the lower level in wave-like fashion.

    ***That would make a good smiley. Some Texans fans doing the wave.***

    Okay sports fans.

    Here's a summary post I wrote about this:

    Texans Fans Spread the Word: Raise Five Fingers for Abbate

    There is a "Email This" link at the bottom of the entry. With as many people as we have here, if we send it to various talk radio/newspaper folks, and Texans fans we know are going to the game and we tell people sitting around us about it, we can help make this happen.
