    It says the Reliant brand name is part of the deal. Gawd, let's hope so. "Reliant Stadium" sounds way cooler than "NRG Stadium".

    Actually I think NRG is a pretty cool name the more I say it out loud.

    Say it fast and it sounds like Energy Stadium. Pretty rad, imo. I'll admit Reliant rolls off the tongue a lot easier though.

    I do repair work for NRG. It is pronounced as ENERGY in the workplace. Here's hoping it is packed and full of energy this year. And the playoffs!!

    I don't care what other people do in their spare time, but dating myself is not one that I prefer to take part in. I tend to migrate to the expensive stuff, or drink too much of the cheap stuff to make it cost effective...while I am pretty much a sure thing, there's easier fish to catch.

    I never got that check from reliant to call Texans Stadium what they want me to. Hopefully NRG will find my mailbox or I'll be seeing you all at Texans Stadium again this year.

    Don't matter to me..I worked for both companies, but Reliant sounds better because we are so used to it. Stay tuned because Exelon wants to purchase NRG....soooo. we it might be Exelon Stadium before all is said and done. Lets just call it Texans Stadium.:goodpost:

    I really don't care what we call it, if the opposing teams this year refer to it as "The stadium we don't want to go to.":wild:

    I like it, it brings back memories. :thinking: 6400, #'s, Bayou Mamma's, Lizard Lounge, Club Excess, City Streets, Ocean Club, J Larkins, Power Tools, Therapy, XTC off the top of my head. Surprised I can remember those with all the brain cells I must of killed back then.
