    I was just wondering which of you guys and gals were regulars at the games.

    The family and I are moving back to the Houston area this year (after my contract is up) and I was just wondering who I may run into if I was able to get to a couple of games.

    You guys sound like y'all are a BLAST to be around at the games!

    :fans: :fans: :fans: :fans: :fans: :fans:

    I've only been to one Texans game and it was great. But I'd like to get to know some of you guys and gals.

    I think I've only missed 3 Texans games since they were established...so I'd classify myself as a regular.

    I missed one game because of that giving birth sort of thing. I missed a game because I was helping celebrating some friends' anniversary in a free place in Maui.

    Lots of MB peeps go to games regularly.

    Brakos is definately of the "older persuasion" to put it mildly. He is a very serious poster and does not believe that people should play around or goof off on the board. All of his posts are well thought out and detailed, and I have never seen him use humor in any form. So please excuse his crotchitiness. He can't help himself. :)

    I missed the very first game, a couple because I was out of town over Thanksgiving, and I missed one this season because I had a big test the Monday after and it's a 3 hour drive between San Marcos and Spring. I've done a lot of late Sunday night drives and once I left at 5 am since I couldn't figure out an assignment and wanted to get on campus as soon as I could to figure it out (ended up BSing it anyway and did decent).

    However I've yet to meet anyone at the game. We have a nice setup in the grassy corner of the blue lot near the Astrohall (I think thats right) with a pit-trailer and such. We go pretty heavy on the tailgating but don't have too many internet/computer types in the group so I guess I'm the TT ambassador..

    I've only missed one game, the first year against the Giants (one of our only two home wins that year). Our season ticket group made a deal before the first season to swap out one ticket to make the wives happy. Last time I ever waste a ticket doing something stupid like that. Wives can get their own dern tickets!

    I had to miss the JAX game this year and a few other games in the past but other than that I am there every game. I have never meet any one on the boards though, other than Texan Joe at a kid rock concert and im not sure if he remebers.

    If you are coming to a game, say so, and peeps will invite you to their tailgates. I don't think anyone is particularly funny about saying who they are in relationship with their MB name. Intros are kind of funny sometimes---"er hi, I'm ______ otherwise known as __________, you know, from the message board."

    I've been in my seat for every home game that I was in the Continental U.S. for (except the 2005 Steelers game...melt-o-rama). Missed almost all of 2003 Season overseas for KBR.

    Only one road game so far @ Canton for HoF game.

    Many of us know each other on sight (and by mobo "handle"), but there's always a few new faces at the tailgate each year to help continue the never-ending..."Oh, I know who you are NOW!" scenarios.

    It'a always great to add a new one to the list!

    I'm guessing you've never seen him drunk on here. When the lil fella gets drunk I can understand joe better.

    I've been to every professional football game in Reliant stadium. A couple of College games a circus, and who could miss the Rodeo. Also been to every Cowboy-Texan game ever played or practiced, Every Raider-Texan Game ever played or practiced, Every Tennesse Titan-Texan game except the one in Tennessee of the 2 and 14 season. Been to the Hall of fame last four years and plan on going the next twenty.

    I am not Regular

    I am Joe Texan

    Come on out to the Blue Crew we would love to have you.

    Haven't missed a home game yet, pre or reg season. Been to several away games, including the HOF game, and definitely plan to vist GB next year. Only place I refuse to EVER go back too is Dallas, until they move into their new stadium. Texas stadium is NASTY, and the fans get worst every year.

    As for meeting members of TT you can find them in any parking lot tailgating their hearts out. Blue, yellow, orange and platinum seem to rank amongst the best as far as meeting fans who post here. Just post a thread when you plan to attend a game, and you will find out just how welcome you and your family will be at any of our tailgates. Personally, I look forward to meeting you someday.

    I missed one Texans home game while in Lincoln, Nebraska for Texas @ NU. I missed one other game while in San Diego for the Holiday Bowl with Texas vs. somebody. I've also been to Texans @Miami, @Chicago, @Dallas, @Buffalo, @San Francisco. I guess that makes me a regular.

    I would estimate 99% or more of the people at Reliant Park on Sunday morning don't even know this message board exists. It's not hard to meet people though. Just show up and hang out. Park in the same place every time and before you know it, you'll be a familiar face to the other tailgating regulars.
