  1. This columnist wants it near downtown to succeed.
  2. I think the Astros will finally get passed the Braves this time. What do you think?
  3. Anybody know anything about this

    Minute Maid Park

    SO I finally went to Minute Maid Park.. Not so impessive. Seats are small in the lower secton. Got to sit in the suite. A good amount of boards and displays are around the park. The canon that goes off evertime we make a homerun is cool. Love the bull/cowboy think which is reminicent of the light up display at The Astrodome. Train was kinda funny. Good size but not large. Wonder why they won't hold concerts in it. The roof was closed The food was expensive as at all plarks. There's always a hella lota functions going on the screens of stadiums and arenas. They should instant replays, player
  5. Above & Beyond Roof covers new ground by bringing unique elements into play By DAVID BARRON Copyright 2002 Houston Chronicle As you drive at night along the South Loop and gaze at newly built Reliant Stadium, you may think that you see one building that, in the words of its designer, twinkles like a giant jewel box amid Houston's skyline. What you really see, in the orderly, mathematical world of David Manica and his colleagues at HOK Sports, is two projects -- the stadium, which is impressive in its own right, and the roof, which is unlike anything in the history of American sporting pal
  6. The Toyota center may seem not so big on the outside, but people don't realize is that it sinks into the ground like the Astrodome and the Compaq Center. Thats why the Astrodome isn't so tall as the Reliant Stadium. I think its a real good idea with the Hilton putting pedestrian bridges across to the convention center and the arena. I wonder what someone will do with the patch of grass next to it? I hope somone builds a little pond/reflecting pool/park there.
  7. Aeros... Aeros not even a big league hockey team. Houston always get talked about, not bad, but badly. The air pollution, the traffic, bad this, and bad that. Houston never do nothing big. I say it's a death cruse. Poor Houston, but I'm a houstonain, and somewhat I love Houston. Everytime Houston do things they fail at it.
  8. looking for pictures, programs, info on bullfighting in Astrodome 1960's
  9. This one is opening next month (April 13, 2019), and will be home to Houston's Major League Rugby team, the Houston SaberCats. It's currently in the construction phase (broke ground back in July 2018), and will have a modest capacity of 4,000. Overall project cost is $15.25 million, and was partially funded by a long-term loan from the City of Houston. The location here is city-owned land at a newly-developed addition to Houston Sports Park which will be visible along the South Freeway (SH 288) at its overpass at Sims Bayou. Principal naming rights were sold to current team sponsor AVEVA, who
  10. It seems unconscionable to me that the more we learn about CTE and it’s effects later in life, the more doctors are starting to see structural changes in the brain in younger and younger players, that there are still parents who enthusiastically sign their elementary age boys up for tackle football. Yet “Tully Bowl mania” seems even stronger this year. Memorial Drive from Gessner to Eldridge is littered with bandit signs supporting this or that team modeled after either an NFL or Division 1 college team. (And we had just gotten rid of all the political campaign signs). Parents have been drivi
  11. As a long time Cougar supporter, I was hoping for a renovated Robertson Stadium but the cost estimates came in at $107 million. So, like the rest of Houston, the UH is gonna bomb the old and build new. Here's a look EXTERIOR press box/club suite side VIEW FROM NW CLUB LEVEL OVERHEAD Also included is a MUCH needed renovation to Hofheinz Pavilion right-to-left Alumni/Athletics Center, new Hofheinz exterior, football stadium
  12. The Texans lost their first game to San Deigo 27-20. What I feel about the texans is two words, BAD LUCK! Even the city of bad luck, and now the texans. Next week they face the Lions, at Detroit. Yes, you could say another lost if they come out and play like they played today against the Chargers. After this season, they need to get another head coach, cause next is going to be the same if he still around. I guess Cowboys will always be Texas team to go to. The crowd at Reliant Stadium wasn't proud of their texans today, why cause they hurt their own selves by alot of turnovers. I say next we
  13. Where exactly was this place. Reason I'm asking is happened to watch Urban Cowboy earlier today and curious to know where this Cowboy nightclub was and was the Post Oak Ranch it's former location? I have found in filming locations on 80s rewind and IMDb only to say it was off of the west loop near the Galleria. Thanks in advance for any info

  15. After the Astros' season was over, I thought the Rockets would be a great consolation to their absence and to the Texans' constant losing. No so. They've been almost as disappointing as the Texans. They're supposed to be better than this. I only care about the Houston teams; they're the only teams I watch and root for. Sports are meaningless to me otherwise. I'm a very frustrated fan.
  16. Hofheinz Pavilion is fenced off, and they are getting ready to close one remaining Faculty parking lot.
  17. I found this interesting. At $1.2 Billion, the Texans rank as the #13 most valuable sports team in the world. #1 is Manchester United, followed by Real Madrid, the Yankees and the Cowboys. http://www.forbes.com/pictures/mli45ikdf/13-houston-texans-2/
  18. I hear they are going to open two in Houston... one of which will likely be behind the Marquee on I10 and Silber. Excellent if true.
  19. http://www.mlsnet.com/MLS/news/team_news.j...t=.jsp&team=hou I actually like the name now. At first it did not sound that great, but it has a good ring to it. The colors and logo for this team are pretty decent.
  20. My link really cool, i've been to the one in Dallas, been waiting for one for years Coming at I-10 and Memorial Brook Drive. Just west of Hwy 6 on I-10 Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  21. Both of them were third in the standings going into the last event, 4x100 race. Men held onto a big lead and women had an AMAZING comeback. Men's race Women's race (Awesome last leg!) Go state of Texas, congrats A&M!!!
  22. Anyone know something about this? I can't find anything online about it. http://www.studioredarchitects.com/html/16_retail_and_entertainment/index_projects=Y_id=132_parent=16.html The Woodlands, Texas Created a master plan and conceptual design for a 150,000 sf Christian-based non-profit athletic complexRecreational center is equipped with fitness facilities, an indoor track, 8 NCAA-size basketball courts and a food courtOutdoor facilities include multiple softball, soccer and lacrosse fields
  23. Well, I prefer the car show, but it's almost time for the rodeo too. This year it runs from March 1 - March 20. Everything you need to know.
  24. I run several times a week around the perimeter of Rice University. I've always wondered if it were possible for the general public to access the stadium and run up/down the steps between the bleachers. I couldn't find a way to get in on Sunday. Does anyone know if this is possible?
