    Damn. Was hoping they'd (the tickets) would be at Wachovia again. Was so easy to get tickets last year.

    That sucks. I guess they probably couldnt find a sponsor like WingStop last year. Apparently Steve Slaton has stopped visiting them.

    Maybe one day i will "be sick" and be able to check in on the morning practices.

    I'm targeting the two Sunday dates as the ones I want to go to. I like watching football with pops and Sunday is the only day he's for sure off (Postal Service yay).

    We tried to get there early enough for autographs last year and didn't wake up at 3am. Silly us.

    I really miss the days where I could go see the Oilers in San Antonio for absolutely free at whatever day and whatever time they practiced. There was no need to go find a ticket at whatsoever location. You just showed up and as they walked out the locker room they would sign autographs, you watched practice, and then you could wait again for them to leave the field and they would sign autographs on the way back to the locker room.

    5am - 7am get ready as though it were game day with party supplies.

    8am - 9:30am - get lost and curse at people driving on 610.

    9:30am - ???

    10am - profit

    Why do they even do tickets? Most teams you just show up, and I hate the autograph set up the Texans have while other teams sign coming off the field. /end rant

    I'll bet that 9:30-10 was the most fun though! Usually blocks of time that I can't remember were the most fun... I'm told.

    Maybe I'm missing something here but isn't it even easier if one can just sit down at their PC, go to the Texans website, and print up the tickets at ones printer ? Don't even have to leave the house, right ?

    So to bump a 3 week old thread, has anything new come out about when TC tickets will be available?

    But it shore do level the playing field for those of us wanting tickets who
    might be nowhere near Houston when they become available.
    Do we even know how many tickets are available per person, or even how many practice sessions each individual may attend ? And are they available at 12:01 AM, on the 12th or 7:00 AM, or what ?
    For a guy who says he wants his fans to have access to his teams summer TC and wants to be "fan-friendly", this McNair guy operates in a strange way ?

    There shouldn't be too much of a "jamming" problem. I figgure if theTexanscan handle the gameday loads, they should be able to sparingly handle the miniscule practice crowds.

    As an out-of-towner, I'm glad this method is being used this time around. Getting tickets last year was a little difficult and stressful for me.
