  • Yep. I'm gonna stay on y'all.


    Here is the roster of those who have pledgedpromisedthreatened to attend:

    Seahawks@Houston Roster

    Myself (CONFIRMED)
    Dom ("This trip has now officially become official")
    MysterMatt (DiEFINITE maybe)
    Seatown81(CONFIRMED)
    FlyingGreg([color=#0000FF]CONFIRMEDQualityInn/ReliantPark)
    RockHawk (The Boss Is CONFIRMED)
    Hawkadeus (c'mon, you phonyass prelag who conned all the mods)
    Aros (hot air alert)
    HoustonHawk(CONFIRMED. Dude lives there. De Facto "host")
    NYCoug+2 (CONFIRMED)
    Hasselbeck (IN........but not sure who he wants to sit with...)
    Barthawk (CONFIRMED. Hotel Procured:CrownePlaza next2Reliant)
    Ludwig's Drummer (CONFIRMED Hotel Crowne Plaza)
    rjdriver (CONFIRMED)
    pehawk (CONFIRMED)
    tooshort
    StonedCold
    No Chops(CONFIRMED driving from Dallas)
    Recon_Hawk(CONFIRMED)
    CALIHAWK1+1 (CONFIRMED)
    RobBaker7714409
    YaktownHawk(BRINGING THE BEEF)
    Mandu+1 (CONFIRMED)
    As I am in negotiations with a couple sources for game tickets and am researching a couple others, it would be nice to know if I am missing anyone (or any +1s) from the list above.

    Also, if you find your handle on the list above and know damn well you are full of hot air and don't really plan to attend when the talons meet the road, (Aros, RockHawk-im looking at you) (RockHawk, im not looking at you anymore. Aros, still looking at you!) please do us all a favor and withdraw your name now.

    Second to lastly, have ANY of you from Seattle purchased airfare yet? And, lastly, why not?

    Expedia currently quotes me $358 round trip from seattle to houston for that weekend, which seems reasonable to me although I have not paid for an airline ticket in 8 years.

    I can't believe how gleefully anticipatory I feel about this forthcoming season.

    Go Seahawks!

  • I'm in.

    As I said in another thread, I've had two seasons derailed by nuthut and home purchases. I dont forsee either occuring in the 2013, but my fingers are crossed. I did make it to Oakland though in 2010...but it was in my suicide phase.

    Yes, I may leave early. But, as long as my streak of either outdrinking or out substancing someone to the point they puke streak is intact, I'll be happy.

    (if pehawk tells you to take half, take half, you're not him and WILL puke...he's a professional)

  • Count me in. I've got an old Army buddy I haven't seen for a couple years who lives in Houston and is a big Texans fan. At least us two will be going to the game. I'm still working on the exact dates I can fly out and return so I haven't booked anything, yet, though.

    Edit: I'm planning on going to the St. Louis game, too, fwiw.

  • ^Kaboom! The more military the better. As I age, I appreciate y'all in a different way. Not what you were willing to sacrifice-that just doesn't cut it for me-as we live we all make extreme sacrifices by our daily choices, and they are generally self-serving calculations.. But by what you have experienced. THAT fascinates me.

    On a sidenote, I hope that this is the year that my very best friend for most of my teen years accompanies me to a Seahawks game in Seattle. He is a Naval Academy graduate. Former CO of a renowned battalion of Marines. Current Marine Corps Colonel.

  • I have to think about it. The company will be exquisite, but I hate Houston and you'd all have to listen to me bitch about how much better Toronto is. And is there at least a Westin or Hilton near the stadium? Quality Inns make me break out in hives. I'm allergic to peasants.

    First things first, but I wouldn't rule it out, personally. Gotta do something between Houston and Indy.

    I am researching now. Talking to reps in Seattle and Houston. If that fails we can try to get a big block of tickets in same section via StubHub but everyone will have to buy their own. In the past both Matt and I have fronted the money for others and it can be a real pain in the ass when people back out or are slow to pay.

    We will figure it out, though. For sure.

  • HoustonHawk:

    We should DEFINITELY plan a Saturday night get together. In the past, most people have flown in on Friday afternoons and we would just make a three day weekend of it.

    Others would show up on Saturday and join the crowd. To each their own, but its safe to say those of us in town will be getting together Saturday afternoon/evening/night.

    Most definitely. There are numerous options for well-equipped sports bars and what we call "Ice Houses" with live music and excellent food options. There are also live "entertainment" venues that will impress, should there be interest in that sort of thing.

    I am happy to organize a gathering spot which will prove worthy of the occasion. All I will need is a number of bodies and a general consensus regarding a preferred ambiance.

    I need to get an idea of what our range is.

    I'm good with what everyone else decides. Seeing as how the Colts game group tix were 61, and great group seats for the Rams is 104... I'm guessing for Houston it'd be a little bit more expensive maybe for awesome seats, like $120 (Edit: $150)? Or we could just find solid seats for cheaper, maybe around 85-90? (Cheapest available on Stubhub right now are $82.50, FYI) I'd say 85-150 is a decent expected range for people? Willing to spend more though. Like I said, whatever the group decides is cool with me. I've already got 2 friends of mine that are interested in attending as well. Should be a great crowd!

    This sounds about right. I definitely low-balled on my ceiling. I've definitely paid more for decent seats haha but again, I'll pay whatever it takes!

    I like these numbers, but I haven't seen a game live since the kingdome so I don't know what is realistic. I wouldn't blink at anything under a buck fifty.

    This. I'm still a maybe (my work schedule fluctuates), but I'll buy a ticket for sure. Worst case scenario I can sell it to someone on here possibly.

  • I just wanted to get the conversation going on ticket$. It is still a bit early (unless we find a deal we LOVE). I think in 5-8 weeks' time we can talk seriously, as we see which way theirmarket trends-but I have been scouting it out and compared to other stadiums this will be a pretty expensive ticket for "good" seats.

    I encourage everybody to poke around/do some research. I have been checking out StubHub and EBay and also several ticket distributors that operate through Houston's Craigslist. With an eye on rows or sections that have quantities greater than 12.

    For less than $150, as of now, we are upper ring for sure.

    Not that I necessarily have an issue with that-I just want to hear what others think.

    My approach is utilitarian.

  • Unlike some other folks, airfare actually counts in the equation and as such, good seats are a must after the initial "get there, sleep there" investment.

    I'll go $350 max. Though for a lot cheaper these seats are kind of interesting on stubhub..group of six, mezzanine level section 325 row D.

  • Having been to Reliant on numerous occasions, I can tell you that there really isn't a bad seat, unless that seat is more than the 10th row back on the upper decks. Just like the Clink, the upper deck seats are situated at a fairly steep angle and each level overhangs the one below it significantly. Thus, being in the closest seat to the front rail is the way to go.

    I highly recommend the club level or below for the best possible experience, but again, don't be afraid to be in the first ten rows of the 500's or even the first five of the 600's. It's weird, but the 200 level is suites and media boxes so the second level is really the 300's, and they skip the 400's. If y'all are in the latter rows of the 100's you are not going to have as good a view as you would in the front of the 300's. Make sense? Just get as far forward as you can, and all will be kosher.

  • HoustonHawk: thanks for the advice. As an insider, whatever info you can share is valued.


    Some additional thoughts on seating:

    It would be a lot of fun to have the whole group of .NETTERS sitting together for the game, but between differing price preferences and availability/ease of purchase that might be logistically ruled out barring a group purchase through the Hoiston box office, which has not been real cooperative thus far.

    I prefer to sit close to the action when on the road, but Houston is going to be a vig dollar ticket and I am already going to more games this year than I have in several years so I'd be down with the budget or the best deal.

    Mostly, I'd just like to be in the stadium and watching the game with as many of you guys as possible.

    What we could end up doing in July or August or whenever we are ready to pull the trigger is find a couple groups of tickets on Stub Hub that we find agreeable and at that time we can each independently go on StubHub in a coordinated effort and buy our own tickets that way. I've fronted the money for far fewer than this number of tickets in the past and, invariably, somebody backs out or waits until closer to game time to pay and the person who puts up the money up front ends up eating part of the initial investment. Who was that clown in Toronto who low balled me for the last ticket??

    Anyway, we will figure it out and it will be fun and memorable.

    The other option, of course, is people can do whatever the hell they want.

  • Booked at the Fairfield inn and suites! What rate are you guys getting at the Crowne? What's the number? Perhaps I can switch pending cost difference.

  • Again, guys, if you are traveling with others please indicate by Plus 1 or Plus 2 etc, so I can reflect that in the first post/roster tally in this thread.

    It will be helpful when planning for tickets.

    Thanks!
