    Just wondering who will be attending this years road game against the Redskins?

    My wife and I live an hour or two south of DC, so I'd really like to go.

    I have heard Dr2bKay is going, as well as Big Toro.

    Anyone else? Maybe we could tailgate before or something! This will be my first game in years if I can make it :)

    I live 20 mins North of DC. It is my goal to make it to the game.

    You know tix will be hard to come by.

    I live in Jersey and have a friend who's moving to DC.
    We are both planning on going plus his two boys.

    I just checked and there are still plenty of good tickets available.
    Not to expensive either.

    I'd be up for some tailgating if there's an area.
    I've never been to the stadium so I'm not sure how they do things there.

    I and ZX758 are going, he lives in NYC so I will head up there to take care of a few things and we will head down Friday

    As far as getting together lets all meet up Saturday night and of course Sunday as soon as the lots open

    Where are you looking for tickets at?

    Neither I nor my 7 yr old have even been to a pro game. Would love to make this our 1st.

    i'll be there (most likely). Im only 7 hours away and my buddy has never been to DC before so we are gonna spend 4 days (2 driving) in DC

    stubhub has some 200 lvl for like $90-110. If you wait some more will open up. For stubhub.com you gotta wait for someone to put up their tix and since many dont have them yet, or haven't had to pay the bill yet it may be a month or so.

    this should be an awesome vacation as I can hit a Texans game and some major landmarks. My advice would be: do not stay in DC as it will be expensive. We are planning on staying about 2 miles from the stadium (so we can walk if we dont wanna pay for parking)

    I will definitely be there--it's a short drive for me but I may take mass transit in for the last bit, because of the legendary traffic problems.

    Haven't been to the stadium before. Fans and radio guys here describe it as a dump--for all the money Snyder puts into the payroll the stadium gets bashed a lot for being poorly managed and not very modern. Admittedly, you probably have to save your money to keep Haynesworth in cheeseburgers and bonus money, but I'm hoping they'll take better care of the place during the Shanny era.

    (Unrelated gripe: I can't believe that the team's playing the Ravens AGAIN and both times have been on the road since I moved here...it would be so easy for me to catch that game here!)

    There was plenty of Texan fans at Green Bay, so I'm sure we can get some to D.C. Just wait out the brokers til they lower their prices. Or really risk it and get your ticks on game day!

    Have you been to the stadium before??

    I'm just wondering if there is anywhere not to get tickets at-I've been looking at the 200 level on the Texans bench side.
