A day with the San Antonio chapter of the Houston Texans Fan Club
Today, I had the pleasure of watching the Texans game with the Houston Texans, San Antonio Fan Club. They were camped out at Chulas Sports Cantina on 410 and Ingram. I brought my son, and we had a great time cheering on the Texans, even if it was a loss it was a fun loss. These are your true fans in their natural environment, outside of NRG that is. Chants, cheers and roars of approval when good things happen. There was no booing, though one got the sense not all was happy in Texans land, more on that in a minute.

The fan club’s facebook page is here. If you are in the San Antonio area and want to have a great time, just check their page, find out where the game is being viewed and show up! Great bunch of folks who really believe. They get rowdy, the get loud, they get behind the Texans. These are people who know how to have a family friendly good time. When I can make it, I do. Which isn’t near as often as I would like.
Here’s a perfect example of Texans, and young Texans fans enjoying good food and a good time. Dad James, his wife Teri and their little ones Coates and Macie. I wonder who their favorite Texan is?
While the fans were all cheers and pulling for the Texans, I did hear a few “Put in Mallett!” or “Mallett time!!” calls and such was also heard around the tables. No one wants to see last years disappointment with a backup, like what happened with Case Keenum, but one got the impression the fans had reached their fill of Fitzpatrick. We know what he is, they need hope. Fair or not to Fitzpatrick, thus was the sense I picked up from the fans. They want wins, or at least a fair shot at a win. Maybe Fitzpatrick is that guy, but I get the impression they wanted to see what Mallett could do undercenter.
Over all, it was everything you could ask for in a meeting of Texans fans, cheering for their team. Just remember, these folks are LOUD! In a good way. I can’t say it enough, it’s worth showing up for!
