    Ummm this was my idea. I believe SheTexan, Texans Chick and Yankee in Texas and possibly DieHardChris were present as we all discussed the Bull Pen, web site and got off on to game day experience.

    The horn is a good idea. But they should start blowing it every fifteen minutes starting 1 hour before kickoff. If you are just starting to pack up your tailgate stuff 30/15 minutes prior to the game, you will have a big problem getting to your seats by kickoff, especially if your parking space is far away or if you are on the upper decks.

    The escalators/ramps just get too crowded near game time to move big groups of people. The time it takes to get to your seats is underestimated by a lot of fans because the stadium looks so close.

    I boo the fans for this. It should never have to come to this to get you to go to the game.

    Blame the tailgating and the price of beer inside the stadium. We're some drinking fools here in Texas and $0.00 is alot better than $8.00..

    I'm not going to lie, there were times where I'd wait until the last second too, but I was always in my seat before kickoff.

    I love the horn idea.......I think it'll add something to our tradition and stadium. I wish we could get that old air raid horn for when we score too. (Only on big plays though)

    Such a great idea. Its unique, as CB says....adds character to our stadium and aura. Really cool.

    Boy, I gotta make it out to Reliant one of these days. Living in Los Angeles is a killer in every single way. Argh.

    Did they do this yesterday? I assume either they did and I didnt hear anything, or they are waiting until regular season.

    I didn't hear anything in the yellow lot. But, we did have the music pretty loud.

    Seems to me most were in their seats by kickoff. A very good crowd for a preseason game.

    I was walking in from Platinum lot at 6:30 and I heard nothing. Didn't hearing anything at 6:45 either.

    Driving back at 11pm and listening to 610, the guys mentioned they didn't hear anything either.

    They could just get a bunch of VY whiners together, and use them. You could hear them from miles away.
