    Ok...Who's going???

    I will be there again this year and I hope other Texan fans are going as well. I arrive 2/5 and will be in Waikiki.

    Going to Hawaii was much easier when we lived in California. But I'd never even thought of going there during the Pro Bowl. Is it a circus?

    Imatexan, PM me the information. I would love for Texans fans to get together before the game...have a tailgate or something...

    SheTexan- I know at the photo shoot Justin mentioned it. I think that he is there already...not sure

    Pencil Neck- No, not a circus at all...very chill and relaxing. It doesn't have the same vibe as All Star Weekend. I am sure that it will be a circus once it is moved from Hawaii though.

    Anyhow, I will take plenty of pics and post on the board again! I hope that other Texans players decide to fly out again this year.

    Its funny that you bring it up. My wife told me I could go to a Pro Bowl one day before I die, partly because they are in Hawaii and she would like to see that also. Now they are moving the darn thing and I don't even know if I want to go because of that.
    Have fun, cant wait for the pics!

    I will be there, flying back to Oahu from Maui on Saturday in the AM and will be staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. We managed to get some over priced seats on row one of section K on the AFC side. It should be a good time!

    Cool, I am in section GG row 4. I can't remember if it is AFC or NFC, since I think that they have changed it. I arrive on Thursday the 5th since I am going to Tampa for the Super Bowl first.

    HHV is a nice hotel. I will be there on that Friday for the fireworks that they have.

    Its just after 9 am here in Maui and I am about to catch my flight over to Oahu to enoy the Pro Bowl activities. All my Texans gear is ready to go and will be worn proudly around the village. We have been here a week and there is almost a nightly news segement on Hawaii losing the Pro Bowl. According to their figures 20,000 fans come in from out of state and help prop up the tourist biz during the post holiday slow period. I have been asked a dozen times if once by locals what I think of the game moving out of Aloha Stadium, after spending the week here I can say with full confidence its just another huge screw up by NFl trying to squeeze the last penny out of an event! Oh well I have finished my 5th cup of coffee and checked the news on Texans Talk so its time to finish packing and head to the Kahului!

    Aloha Texans fans!

    Yeah, they still do them. I didn't get a chance to watch, but I think they were on last night on NFLN.

    Did anyone else notice Tony Gonzalez's "Speedy Gonzalez" imitation during the player intros? LOL.

    That's awesome. Who all on the team did you hang out with? Do you tailgate with them or what?

    Ok, I'll take your word for it.

    BTW, according to Kay from last year, what happens in Hawaii - stays in Hawaii! :smiliedance:
