    You better bring that winter coat! I am telling you, that wind off the harbor is brutal.

    I am bringing my wind-proof UA winter jacket (jersey worn underneath), knit cap, flannel lined jeans courtesy of the Eddie Bauer store in the Galleria, long underwear, SmartWool socks and water / wind proof Timberland hiking boots --- and I will still feel cold most of the afternoon.

    You also dehydrate faster in colder temperatures than you do in warmer climates. Combine that with drinking and you could be setting yourself up for a fall if you're not drinking enough water to go along with your adult beverages.

    This was always an issue ............. until Under Armour invented UA Base 4.0. I use an over-sized jersey to complete the ensemble.

    Damn, I better head to Academy and get some thermals. It's been warmer in Baltimore than Houston this week. Just our luck it's getting butt ass cold

They do their afternoon walk-thrus often indoors--not their real practices.

    2-a-days aren't allowed under the new CBA, but even before they were banned, the Texans typically one real practice outdoors, and one walkthru in the bubble. The bubble feels real confined when they have to do a real practice indoors due to weather.
    Let's get down to the serious questions like; "How was Regis, in person?"

    Hahahaha! Tiny. Painted sorta orange. With the whitest teeth you've ever seen. He sort of looked like a thinner Oompa Loompa. He wasn't in a very good mood that day given it was the second to the last prime time show they did before they cancelled it.

    This is easier when it is a home game because if you go outside and are too cold, you can just go get more stuff.

    I have a closet full of Texans attire, and I rarely get to wear my cold weather stuff. I am actually ok with that but will make an exception for the playoffs.

    He reminded me of "Weekend at Bernie's". He did sound irritated though, like he was late for an opera. Last show because you "broke the bank" ....


    P.S. You knew it was "Paris"

    Your gonna be dressed like you are going to the Ravens and Skins night game from a few years ago when it was about 12 degrees.

    if its in the lower 30's it wont be bad until you are in the shade. where I sit that's usually right after halftime.

    as for showing team colors when it really cold I usually wear a t- shirt, 2 long T-shirts, a hooded sweat shirt, and my jersey. If its really cold ill add another sweat shirt but the jersey is always on the outside. As for the lower half I wear a pair of gym shorts followed by sweat pants then a pair of jeans. On the feet I wear 2 pair of thick socks. I NEVER wear gloves reason being more noise can be made with bear hands clapping then with gloves on. between plays and on offense my hands are in the pockets of my hoody to stay warm

    A lot of factors to consider with the weather. The visitors side of the field is always much warmer because it gets direct sun. The Ravens side of the field and stands are much colder , as much as a 20 degree difference some games. Same with tailgating. Big difference if you are under 395 vs out in the sun.

    Hope it snows. It adds to the ambiance.

    Coldest games I've ever been to:
    Week 17 last year vs. Cincy, I was in the top row of the upper deck (great seats, right?)
    This year vs. 49ers, but I was in a box

    I'll be in the lower level on Sunday. At least the wind isn't down there.

    PolyPro is coming out for this game I guess, and prob the bear suit bottoms. Long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt and jersey. Neck gator and skully. This is good down to about 20 degrees and a little wind.

    My wife got us some sweet heavy Ravens coats a few years back.

    To the Texans fans, two tips. One well known. Layers, layers, layers. T-shirt, sweat shirt, jersey, heavy coat for me. Second and lesser known tip, carry in a piece of carbaord about 12X18 inches to put your feet on. Trust me on this, concrete sucks the warmth out of you. That piece of carboard provides a bit of insulation that does wonders for your toes.

    I will wear one thin sock, one thick, and also have foot warmers that generate heat as I walk, so I stand a lot when it is cold and walk in place.

    Long johns are a must for the legs. I may go with sweat pants on top of those with the camos on tops. I like the camos but there are not that thick.

    A seat cushion or more cardboard for your butt is not a bad idea.
