    I know it is early and things may change, but as of now (according to my TV guide) the Texans will not be on this Sunday. They are showing the Aints game.


    I know I couldn't make it to BWW this last Sunday, but I know I can't go two weeks without seeing the Texans play. So let's see what we can do.

    Well I was able to go half with a friend on my Directv and got the game last Sunday for$22 and it was well worth it. I also checked for this weekend and it shows the Saint's game hopefully if not changed I will just purchase it again. Gots to watch my Texans also with BBQ and refreshments. I treat the $ as if I were to go to the game and of course it would cost alot more. Most of the games I would say about 13-14 of them will be on local regional area TV. Though Ike kind of messed up some of the scheduling.

    It is a 3:05 kickoff. But like Texanzgreat said it might change since this was our orginal bye week, so the guide may not be updated yet.

    haaahaa that is funny.

    Seriously we have tried that, but our local media is not too Texan friendly.

    i think we should plan on BWW at dezavala just in case.

    I did Champps last weekend - Although there were only three of us there, we got hooked up w/ a big screen in the back.

    If yall are headed out to the BWW at DeZavala, I can add another diehard to the mix. I'll check back and see how much support we can drum up.

    I am thinking of joining you guys too. last week I caught the game at the Fox and the Hound, but the majority there were browns fans (go figure). Do you get a good group of Texan fans at BW3?
    And we have to keep pressuring KENS 5 because this situation is ridiculous. Anyone have their contact info?

    I'll be there too. I'll post something on our blog to see if we can get any other SA area fans out to the BWW at DeZavala.

    Look forward to seeing yall out there.

    Let me get the record straight here to my Directv subscription in San Antonio and when I just purchased only for one Sunday the Sunday Ticket, this past sunday on the Texan game. I called Directv the day before the game and asked for the Texan game. They explained that it appears to be on but could not really say positively that it would not be a local area telcast. The first agent actually told me that it would not be televised. So what did Directv do for me. They said that they were almost sure that it would play on Sunday Ticket but if it does not they would refund me my fee. They knew that I was just interested in that game for me to purchase it. I got to see the game in all glory and I'm ready to do it again this Sunday with the same arrangement. That's why I'm more prone to purchase it rather than chancing BWW and all those Cowboy fans etc.and still have my buffalo wings and whatever with my friends knowing that I will get it. Who knows maybe after that terrible Cowboy loss at 12pm they decided in poor envious sportsmanship by the bar owners why should the Texans then be on tv. I do know for a fact any bar with Directv and the Sunday Ticket in the San Antonio area could and should have played that game. That should hold true for the Austin area too I believe.

    Its a 3pm game there is no reason for them not to show it. Not even going to worry about BWW not showing the game. If 10 people show up in gear the will have no choice, either show the game or loose out on revenue.

    BTW people are not eating out as often as they did 3 months ago. The need the money.

    I guess I will be there around 2:30 or so to get a seat and hopefully see depressed Cowboy fans.
