    I've never been to a road game so I wasn't sure how it works on getting tickets. Do the Texans or NFL provide Texan fans with an opportunity to buy tickets or do you have to buy them off ebay or some other ticket place?

    We are really looking forward to this trip, who else is planning on going?

    On the front row in the endzone!!!

    Just like the post above me said, the Texans have a road package deal per person and that includes a ticket to the game and hotel and a ride to the game.

    I have been on the green bay's fan site looking at this past year and seeing if people sold their tickets on their and from what I can gather is that the tickets are sold in front of the stadium in a location for scalpers or on ebay.

    It seems most of the people there do not sell their tickets on their site like we have here on this site.

    I hope this game is in December. If I'm going to Lambeau, I want to see it frozen.

    I would like to go to this game.

    I am guessing it is not likely going to be a December game. Typically, like other teams that are in warm weather or have roofs, the Texans tend to have their home games weighted towards December. Lots of three home game Decembers.

    Aren't there travel agents that would put a group together? I bet someone up there is making money hooking up visiting fans.

    It would be sweet to have a large group from here go together.

    My wife wants to go on a cruise. I think she'll agree that a trip to the frozen tundra would be a great alternative. I am sure all of you gals would too, right??

    Houston, again.
    Carefull what you wish for. If you haven't been in that kind of cold before it can be a very rude awakining and painfull if it is sub-zero with wind.

    To add to that point, I was in that general area on January 12, 2007. On that day, I recall a temp of zero degrees F with a wind chill of minus 25. The last thing you want to do in those conditions is leave the house, much less drive to and sit outside at a football game. Plus, you can't buy the clothes down here that you can up there and if you try to kluge together some kind of Houston Academy or WalMart outfit to wear up there, the cold will rip you to the bone.

    The best cold/snow games are like the one you saw where the temp is in the high 20's or right around 30 with little or no wind - and snowing.

    Most people in Green Bay go to the game with thier tickets, so there is not that many to sell, A lot of these tickets are 3rd and 4th generation.

    Dont forget I was in Russia in Jan to adopt my lil girl, and I have never been anywhere cold before, but got lots of tips and survived no problem. Its all about knowing what to wear for sure. Bring it on Im ready for the snow!

    Been planning this one for a LONG LONG time!!! I will be there, regardless of the price and regardless of the cold. I agree with GW. I hope this game is in December, but, doubt it will be.

    Can't wait for the schedule to come out.
