Lightbulb Texans sneeky plan backfired

The texans left the roof to the dome open on sunday hoping by the 2nd half our Steelers wearing the black home jerseys, would start to tire out from the heat.. well as it turned out, we turned up the heat and neither the texan players or fans could take it!

Open roof, heat drive away fans

What reason did the Texans have for not closing the roof and turning on the air conditioning on Sunday?

By halftime, the stadium began to empty, and it was not because the Steelers were winning by a "city mile" but because people were almost near heat prostration sitting on those seats in the glaring sun.

Suffice to say, it is the last football game I will attend at Reliant Stadium when the heat index is not taken into consideration

You could see their fans were annoyed during the game. They would show them and they looked like they were going to pass out. Not a good move in my opinion.

After the game the stadium crews were like, we planned on leaving it open to help wear them out, but all that happened was that our fans and our team got worn out!!

I guess you can't blame the Texans for trying something like that.
Too bad it didn't work.

The thing that was driving me nuts while watching on TV was the glare and the crazy shadow patterns the sun was creating on the field.
There was a couple times in the first half when Ben passed the ball and I could barely pick up the ball on replay because the contrast was so bright.

Yeah, I agree Ambridge. That was aggravating. Like that pass to Ward I think it was for his first TD. You couldn't see him at first.
