Does anyone have these that they don't use...I would love to check it out sometime
They aren't available to the public, pretty much have to know someone or win a contest or something.
they're super hard to come by :-( It's friggin amazing to do though!!! They told us that the Texans are the only NFl team that allow it; I dunno about that.
Yep, done it twice, pretty cool, makes you realize just how big those dudes are. Mario made other big dudes look small.
what exactly does it let you do? Just get on the sidelines while they warm up?
I got some sideline passes for a pre-season game against Chicago a couple of years ago. Matt Turk is a pretty big fella and he's the damn punter.
Watch out for the yellow dashed line, they don't like people crossing it.
Which one are you?
Is that a Jonathan Wells jersey?
He's on the left.
That looks so awesome. Were you able to speak to any players? cheerleaders? coaches?
I won passes from the team a couple years ago for the MNF game against the Jags. Got dinner in the VIP lounge under the stands and seats in one of the mega-suites. I think it was Toro's Extra Points or something.
It was cool. Actually, that night it was frickin' freezing.
Did not get to talk to anyone. But I did tip toe across the yellow line when no one was looking. tee hee.
They have you show up 90 mins early at some glass doors by the comcast gate and walk you through Reliant to a room near the tunnel where breakfast/brunch/ drinks are waiting. (food selections alone, I was amazed. there was also a gift for the attendees.) For ours, Toro and 10 or so of the cheerleaders made a showing for photos. about an hour prior to kickoff, they hand out sideline lanyards and power towels, and provide instructions. You walk out the tunnel (not the same one the players use unfortunately, but nonetheless, the effect of walking out there leaves one speechless!) This year you've got free reign of walking- just don't cross the yellow media line, and don't hang out behind the player benches or the goal post, as the refs will quickly ask you to move. I don't want to say it was the best day of my life, due to the fact we haven't won our super bowl yet heheh. It was A M A Z I N G!
If you ever get a chance to get some, it's a fun experience...not to mention the free beer and food before you go out to the field. You may get to meet some well known people. I got two of them for the TNT game and it was awesome. My friend and I got to meet Bum Phillips and stood in the end zone while the Texans warmed up.
I did not represent well on Sunday. If fact, they removed my wristband and escorted me out to the masses.
All I have to say to that is that... Jeff Fisher shouldn't have been standing five feet away from my mouth. Just shouldn't!!!
Sounds like you represented very well!
I think I would have been doing the same thing...you took one for the team my friend. Sucks they escorted you out.
They didn't kick us out of the stadium. Just removed our wristbands and sent us out from the tunnels. We went straight to our seats.
They weren't too mad about it.
Oh in that case I really would have been having a field day yelling at him My friend and I were yelling at Finnegan when he ran out for practice, luckly security didn't bother us about it (i'm sure they were agreeing with us in the inside)
It's a good time the first time...I have passed on them more times than I have taken them...nothing all that big about it. But for sideline virgins, it is fun !!
