    TEXANS VS. BROWNS
    Salute to the Military presented by Bud Light
    Reliant Stadium
    Sunday, November 6, 2011
    Noon Kickoff


    Warning to those on the sunny side of the stadium. The Texans push the roof policy on the military salute day. Too bad they can't do the pregame activities, then shut the roof for the game.

    And I hope I do a better job of setting my clock back this year than I did last year. :kubepalm:

    Not meaning to hijack the thread but the daylight savings thing, is that the game starting an hour earlier or later than normal.

    That means 5am or 7am over here.

    I have blonde moments (and I am not even blonde) over this all the time.

    We set the clocks back an hour. So what was noon becomes 11 am.

    You have to do the rest of the math from there.

    Just put your clock back an hour and wait for 12 noon as usual. Texas time that is!

    Since I'm in the Navy myself, I have to pick the navy chick.
