    This is the first game we have had to question it.

    Will the roof be open or closed Sunday?

    It seems as if it going to be amazing out, lets hope open!

    It falls under the 50-80 rule.

    Current forecast is a low of 58 and a high of 77, with gusts of whining that "the sun was sunny" from people who have had season tickets in the North End Zone for 8 years but can't afford $3 for a visor.

    According to Steph a.k.a. Texans_Chick the early report says the roof will be open.

    Come over there and sit before you decide to make a statement about something you know nothing about!! 77 degrees outside with a beautiful SUNNY sky means 90-100 in the NEZ with dark blue seats and medal steps in part of section 116-117. A 3$ visor ( in your dreams) has nothing to do with the fact you can't put your hand on your seat without getting it burned, it happened!!!!! FYI: There is NO air circulation in the lower bowl. It has been proven that the temp is 15-20 degrees higher in the NEZ than it is outside!

    The roof was open for all the games last year. There was one game, can't remember which, where the temp was about 75 outside, BEAUTIFUL day for tailgating. The temp in my section, according to a PSL owner who had a temp guage on his phone, was 102!!!!

    Now, all that said, I am NOT spewing "gusts of whining" I am stating a fact!! I also made the choice to STAY in the NEZ for the past 8 years! The older I get, the more difficult and dangerous it is to stay for 4 full quarters in 100 degree heat, that's MY problem!! If it gets to hot on Sunday, which it will, I'll walk around until I find a seat in the SHADY area, where all you dark side fans sit and gloat!!!

    I want no part of the roof being open unless it's cold out, over 75 is too warm to have it open. If it were an open air stadium I would feel different. Last year for the bears game was AWESOME.

    I saw on Facebook that they are gonna have a parachute team drop in. Sounds like its open to me. Hopefully no one gets snagged on the way in and delays the game....lol

    Texans stadium isn't an open air stadium. If you don't have to sit in the sun there you wouldn't understand. There is zero air flow as they won't prop open the doors so it can flow. The sun sucks...I got out of it (I get enough sun working) as soon as I could.

    It better be for those guys sake, but for me it's this:

    As Gma said,

    Not to mention all of the hot air that Joe Texan lets loose.

    Flyover is nice, but its over in 3 seconds, so its better outside when you see it, as you can enjoy them longer.....been in and out when they have done it and it is better outside...but still be in your seat anyways !

    I always get to my seats (when I make the trip) by the National Anthem and the player introductions, why get there any earlier than that?

    Well, I'm certainly a veteran of the heat by now, so my bitching about it ended a long time ago. I just take care of myself, and hope everyone else does the same. No more visits to the med-clinic for me!! lol I'll probably transfer two of my seats out of the Bullpen this next year. Haven't decided yet.

    I hope it's a beautiful sun shinny day and everyone has a great time! I'll be in my seats EARLY, don't want to miss a THANG with this game!! Been looking forward to this one for a very long time! Just my luck I'll have to fry to see it. Such is life!:texflag:

    I hear ya about the heat, I'd prefer the roof be closed unless it's cold, it's so much more comfortable for those in the sun.

    I was in agreement, 75 is still too warm is what I meant.

    Drinking + heat = Stinky sweatiness.

    No, I was agreeing with you. I knew what you meant. It's all good.

    I guess its not the same in the club level but when its 75 out, even on my seats it feels amazing.

    When I had seats at the bottom bowl they were on the last row so the most I would get in the sun was my legs, never really experienced the heat in those seats either.

    I don't give a flying pink rat's butt about a roof. I'll be there for a football game.
