Did Anyone Get Tickets To Texans Training Camp This Morning?

If I missed out on the chance to watch Mario Louis due to anyone's idiocy but my own, my feathers are ruffled.

Tickets to the six (6) open sessions of 2012 Texans training camp supposedly became available at 8 a.m. CDT this morning. I say "supposedly" because despite entering the queue via the official site at 7:54 a.m. and being told I was "in line" due to the excessive traffic on the site, I never had the opportunity to snag any tickets.

Undeterred, I opened another window so I might conceivably have another bite at the apple if the first attempt didn't work out. No dice. After waiting for about ten minutes (which I knew was a bad omen), I got an error message from Ticketmaster. I tried again a couple of times and got the same error message.

Now, if I was just slow on the draw (despite being "in line" before the tickets officially became available at 8 a.m.) and the Texans ran out of tickets, so be it. As a wise man once said, that's on me. But if there was a widespread problem where fans simply couldn't get through? That's on the Texans.

Tell me, BRB...did you get your tickets to Texans training camp?
