    Well Houston, its been what... nearly 20 years since we have experienced playoff football in this city? 20 friggin years!! We didnt do anything to deserve the miserable place we have been in for such a long time. It has been a brutal ride no doubt. But now the time has finally come. No matter what turmoil we have been through together... from having no team, the espansion era, tough losses, injuries, coaching debates, set backs, yada, yada, yada.... that is all in the past now.

    This coming Saturday... its OUR TIME. Its our time to show the rest of the league just who we really are. This crowd is going to blow the mother effing roof off the place and keep it off. If there is one major advantage in the playoffs, its homefield. We will have our say in all of this, and will be expelling almost 2 decades of frustration out on the Cincinnati Bengals. They are going to be rattled to the core. I cannot wait to experience what it is going to be like in that stadium this Saturday.

    Lets do this.

    Dont forget to bring your cans and pennies! Anyone else have any noise maker ideas that would be allowed in the stadium?

    I'll be chugging down some water and honey before I get inside, anyone have some other tips on making your voice go the extra mile?

    They won't let you carry a can through the gate, so your best bet is to buy a Miller Light in one of their wide-mouth aluminum bottles, once you're inside the stadium.
    The wide mouth is big enough to put coins through, unlike the smaller mouth of a Bud Light bottle.

    Dont forget the extra Aspirin.

    Has it ever been as loud as it was during our inagural game vs Dallas? I gotta expect this Sat to be the loudest its ever been. I remember getting ice cream headaches from yelling so loud in that game.

    It makes me smile to see everyone so excited about Sat! Such a great feeling just knowing I'll be surrounded by the BEST fans in the NFL!!

    Personally, I'm counting down the hours!! Finding it hard to focus on anything else!! Don't wanna cook, clean, work, NOTHING, except stay on the MBs, surf the net for MORE news, anything, that will keep this dream going. Just wanna soak it all up like a sponge, and I'll never forget ONE moment of this splendid experience!!

    Can you believe I am having trouble finding someone to ride with me from Austin to bring to the game?

    You should call Toro and see if he will come get you on his 4-wheeler!

    If you're providing the ticket, I'd consider driving to Austin and driving back with you!

    We need to be loud from the minute the Bengals get into the huddle until the play is complete and then take a deep breath and repeat.

    I think Steph brought this up in here blog post on Chron.com, but after we get a first down sometimes its too loud and they can't get the play in right away. That few second delay can allow the bengals to make a substitution or slight adjustment.

    So let's be loud and let's be smart, 70k+ strong, let's go!

    I'm not worried about the Defense, Andre OR Foster, but Yates...well...the boy concerns me. I still say we'd be better off with Bill behind center.

    Bill's gametime focus is suspect
    ...too easily distracted by the cheerleaders

    To Bill, going thru his progressions means counting the number of blondes vs. brunettes...

    ...and let's not even talk about what "wide open" means to him

    I do this as well. I bring some of the screw top Miller Lite lids too. Screw the lids on and shake without having to worry about stuff flying out the top.

    I'm expecting it to be every bit as loud as the Falcons game. I did hear that the roof will be open though, I wonder how that might factor in? I think Steph posted in her blog a few weeks ago that she was told it isn't a factor, but I have a hard time believing that.
