It was a "DRAFT PARTY!"
Granted, I didn't feel much like partying since I'd had yucky tests the day before, but it was still a lot of fun to get out to see the weirdness of football fans. Yes, football fans can be weird creatures.
Here I am standing at a window inside Reliant Stadium and you can see Houston's skyline in the distance. Below in the parking lot, there are the players' vehicles...most of them black and decked out to the max.
I think just ONE of these vehicles is worth more than my home.
This oddity was getting his kicks by finding children to terrify.
And the Houston Texan Cheerleaders were around for photo opportunities...football must have cheerleaders, I guess. Except for Texas A&M...they have the CORP!
Actually, the Draft Party was also the time for would-be Texan Cheerleaders to go through voting to be on the team. They had many family members and friends walking around with poster-boards asking for a vote! Then, a group of girls would dance in the hall to their fast-learned routine. I can attest, some of those girls did not need to be in a cheerleader uniform. It was interesting and fun.
How about a cheerleading team for us old women to participate in? No?
To be fair, I guess that's why they don't have a football team for old-timers either.
We only stayed a couple of hours, but it was interesting. My aunt and uncle are season ticket holders, so they gave us their Draft Party tickets which included free parking --- a Houston biggie!
It's great to live in an area that has fun things such as this to attend, but I'm still aching to get settled in the country and trying to be patient...
