    For the first time last night, I had passes to a luxury suite at Reliant Stadium. People who regularly attend games in luxury suites have to be spoiled and could probably not make it in the regular seats.

    Here are a few of the perks one can enjoy in one of the many luxury suites throughout the stadium.

    * Free Food
    * Free Drinks
    * Free Programs
    * Visits from the cheerleaders
    * Free dessert
    * And get this, if you go out and sit in one of the seats to watch the game, a waitress comes up to you and asks, "Would you like anything to drink?" And they Bring it to you! You don't have to get out of your seat, uhhhmp, your padded cushioned seat, to stand in line with all the riff-raff wandering the stadium.

    As a special treat I also had sideline passes and was also treated to a brief visit in the 610 radio booth during the game. See pic below.

    You are right, the suites are pretty sweet...have been in it during the rodeo, and talk about anything ya want, it is nice. Now I have been to a suite at Minute Maid a few times, boy, I could use a few more of those tickets again..

    Glad you enjoyed...

    I too had that opportunity for the Philly game last year. I found myself eating way too much, ribs, brisket, chinese food, etc. The other problem was too much to drink also, hard to resist when its cold and looks even better when delivered.
    But the perk for me was the freebies, t-shirt, program, lapel pin, and some other stuff.
    But I do agree, nothings better than being there as in the Bullpen!

    I sat in those suites once. It was like being at a luxury sportsbar with a game going on in the background. Free booze, food, TVs showing every other game going on at the time, etc. It was just too much, lol.

    I missed pretty much the entire game while partying up. It was like that one scene in 'Any Given sunday'. Can't do that again.



    Okay, yes I can.

    I was able to chat with Andre for a couple of minutes on a commercial break. We talked about who the next starting QB for UH would be and he also said that he has complete confidence in Kolb's ability as a pro.

    I did not notice his cufflinks, but they might be UH.

    Wow...I'm glad to hear you consider the rest of us non-luxury box type stadium folk 'riff-raff'. :)
