Like a child getting ready to go to Disneyland for the firs time, Houston Texans fans are beginning to stir. A restless anxiety and anticipation is growing throughout the Houston metropolitan area as fans and dissenters alike prepare for the franchise’s first ever playoff appearance. Retail stores cannot stock the Texans AFC South Champions gear fast enough and fans can be found around every corner donning their new hats and t-shirts.
As if that were not enough it has now been announced that tickets for the playoffs will be for sale tomorrow morning, Friday, December 30th at 10 am, through TicketMaster.com. The Texans announced that less than 2,000 tickets will be available online and I expect that all of those will be gone in less than 30 minutes!
What is most important for this city, though, is that it once again has a championship caliber team who can make it further than the end of the regular season. Sports fans in Houston have suffered through years of losses by the Rockets, Astros, and Texans alike. In a state where football is not just a sport but a way of life having a playoff worthy team is worth more than gold.
