Let's be real, besides us diehards, football is far from the forefront of Houstonians minds right now. The thinking might have been to tie in some of the charitable spirit behind the hurricane relief work to sell out both games. We'll see if that works. I'm inclined to think that more casual fans will start thinking about buying game tickets if the game goes well Saturday.
If you watched the Astros games this weekend, the attendance was paltry for a 100 win pace team in September. Hopefully the Astros, Coogs and Texans will all give the city something to rally around, but we need some momentum first.
