While the game was not much fun to watch, it wasn't all bad. The first 3 quarters the defense played well, and the offense wasn't atrocious. My first live Texans game experience was still one I will remember in a positive way, even though it was loss 13 in a very bad season. This week's thingy will be a more personal view than some.
First of all, I had a great seat:
Did I mention it was a great seat?
The roof was open
I went around to check out the tailgaters...
At least some were tailgating in a holiday spirit
Even though it was right before Christmas, I think the crew from the North Pole were even having trouble getting excited about the game.
Santa was trying to get a free drink there
Then Santa was giving diet tips to John McClain.
The Reindeer were even locked up for being drunk in public.
Then, Santa was flirting with the Cheerleaders
I turned and looked, and I saw the old dilapidated Astrodome. It is time to go for you old dome. This is the last time I likely get a photo of it:
Then I see this in front of the stadium
This photo I took sums up the game:
At least while at the game - there was always a "view."
My view was so good, I saw what John Fox saw:
I believe this is what you call unsportsman like conduct
After the game ended, the Schaub gave his "chicken dance"
Just in case you were wondering, yes I was really there.
I was going to put all sorts of interesting tid-bits about the game (OK a handful) but the Texans have not even put out the gamebook on the game yet. I think the guys in charge of that are still in some back room drunk someplace - they just cannot handle it any longer.
Just for information I took all of the photos used (except for the one of me - someone else took that).
Well, nothing else much to say. I hope I can get some really clever stuff for next week's Thingy.
