Countdown To Kickoff: Texans v. Vikings

Can you smell it? Football's on the grill. Pass the last painful few hours with fellow Texans fans on BRB's Countdown To Kickoff thread.

I don't want to hear any jibber-jabber about how tonight's preseason opener between your Houston Texans and the Minnesota Vikings doesn't count. It's football. Real, live football. It's something we haven't seen from our beloved squad since the Patriots unceremoniously ended Houston's 2012 campaign seven (7!) months ago. Tonight, that ends. Tonight, we have football again. Hallelujah.

As we stare pleadingly at the clock, praying for those final few hours to pass so we can officially welcome the Texans back to action, I invite you to use this thread to pass the time. This is the place for you to commiserate with like-minded fans. Chat about the game, the Vikings, the Texans' upcoming season, what you hope to see tonight, and anything else Texans-related. The first open thread for the game will post at 6:45 p.m. CDT.
