Fans of the Houston Texans have not watched their beloved team play a game since December 28, 2014. That was every bit of seven and a half months ago.
Tonight, the forced sabbatical ends. The Texans will take the field in live game action, albeit in an exhibition game. After not seeing anything resembling real Texans football since last year, that qualifies as reason to celebrate.
This is your first open thread for the Texans' preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers. Share your observations, thoughts, and musings about all things Houston and/or Texan in real time in the Comments below.
NOTE: Please do not post any images, videos, GIFs, or non-text comments in any of BRB's live game threads. They tend to slow the thread down and can take a long time to load. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
