Anyone going to Houston?


Recommended Posts

Won’t be there, but was there last Christmas when I drove down to see my sister in Pearland.  Usually go Highway 6 but I chose   I-45 this time but  had forgotten downtown H-Town traffic.  When I-45 downtown is moving briskly (I swear) you’d think you were inside Denton County’s Texas Motor Speedway taking a lap.  Otherwise, as a youth I have such fond memories of the Bayou City.  One memory toward the top of the list is that it was at Rice U where I attended my first college football game.  It was Jess Neely’s Owls (with the Coach in his famous 2 piece brown suit) vs John Bridgers Baylor Bears. In a totally different era, I can never forget the light aroma of burnt pipe tobacco & cigars permeating inside 72,000 seat Rice Stadium. Some gents dressed in suits while others donned light tan Stetsons with casual western wear. (Dammit’, I miss the SWC)! 
 I’ll stop before this goes into a manifesto mode.🙄 
❤️ Love Houston but moreso as a visitor of late. 

GMG!

GMG!

Harris County is still the COVID-19 Capital of Texas, per the state of Texas statistics. I won’t be making it down this year.  If a TV or streaming announcement isn’t made soon, I may be kicking it old school, huddled around a radio.

Well I got a steal! 55 bucks for 3 seats row 1 on the 30! Been wanting to go to the game and see the new stadium 

Where did you get them?

UH website. I called the UNT ticket office and they said they wouldn't put them on sale until next week, but I wanted to get them in advance because they were a good price.

But we do not get credit for the ticket sales.

I called this morning and was told our ticket office is not selling tickets to any away games. So, there you go.

Ah well I guess they changed it. I wonder why they aren't because I'm pretty sure most schools get a amount of tickets
