    I was just talking to Texans Pride and we were thinking what would happen to the Texans game this sunday if Hurricane Ike slams into Galveston/Houston.

    Would the NFL screw us and move the game to Baltimore like what happened to the Saints and the NFL moved the game to NY and took a home game away from them?

    Would they just move the game to a Monday or Thursday night game?

    Well, I'm guessing if the Hurricane actually hits the area, a Monday game would be out of the question. Thursday, probably not an option either because of the logistics. I'm pretty sure Bob McNair woudln't allow the NFL to screw us over by putting the game in Baltimore, at least I hope not. So, all that said, I'm guessing they would play at a neutral site on Sunday.

    When fires were burning in San Diego, we ended up playing there anyway, so I'm guessing that unless Ike is completely devastating Houston, we'll probably be playing here.

    The Saints are on the Road against the Redskins. Maybe we could play there.

    The Cowboys are playing at home Monday night against the Eagles, so I guess playing at Texas Stadium is off the table.

    I dunno, but I think they ususally make a call on this sort of thing atleast
    several days before game-day so people can rearrange their plans. Logistically it can be a big deal, especially if they decide to have an evacuation of parts of the metro area which would have to begin on or before Friday. Aren't we talking Gulf Coast landfall sometime Saturday AM ?

    If Ike comes, we'll just drink hurricanes in the Yellow Lot instead of beer.
    Man up, Sissies.

    LOL, Great 100th post. Although, I don't think I will survive shotgunning multiple hurricanes.

    :spit: Whatever it is you're drinking Thorn, just keep drinking it. You won't feel a thing when Ike hits!

    Off topic; Were you a big fan of "Combat" when you were a kid?

    I'm at work, must be the Diet Coke or I'm even more messed up than usual.

    And yeah, I'm a big fan of "Combat".
