    Anyone here from Houston?

    Any Redszone members live in Houston? I will be in Houston on Thursday for an interview. I've only been to the George Bush Airport, The Ballpark and a select few other places. Any suggestions on how I can waste a little time near the ballpark? I get in at 10:30 and I do not interview until 2PM. My flight leaves at 6:30 PM.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    The flying saucer is a badass bar.

    Getting drunk before the interview might not work though.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    How funny would that be? Slurring and stumbling while discussing hitting!!!

    The Houston Aquarium is a few blocks from Minute Maid. I've never been there, but I have driven by and heard from others that it's cool.

    The Market Square Historic District is an interesting walk.

    There's not really much to do in the downtown area there besides look at skyscrapers, IMO. I guess I'm spoiled by the sensory overload of downtown San Antonio.

    Are you already done at Tampa? And you didn't get me anything from the prize closet?

    And then, of all places, you go to Houston??? The home of wet heat, mosquitos, and bad traffic.

    Spill it, TC!

    The ballpark is in Arlington, TX. Home of the Rangers. You mean the Park.
