Traveling to a Texans road game? Here’s some common sense tips.

Stephanie Stradley (@StephStradley on Twitter) was voted Ultimate Texans Fan in 2006 and now writes a blog for the Houston Chronicle online. We asked her for her road game travel tips for Texans fans.

In 2012, a record number of Texans fans went on road trips. In 2013, this number is likely to increase with many fans who have never been to a road game.

The following are common sense tips that I’ve assembled based on the experiences of fans who’ve travelled with the team since the beginning of the franchise. This isn’t intended to alarm, but rather help you have the best experience you can on the road:

Be careful with alcohol consumption: Over-drinking is never a good idea, but it is a particularly bad idea when traveling to a road game.  You already know this but this is a minor reminder, particularly if you are doing many pre-game activities. The few bad reports I’ve heard of Texans fans on the road have involved too much alcohol.

Be cool: One of the top priorities of the NFL is to improve the game day experience, and part of that is zero tolerance of bad fan behavior.  If there are fights among fans, no matter who is originally at fault, the usher or security guard often gets rid of the road fan.  You usually do fine on the road if you aren’t obnoxious or intoxicated.

You are an uninvited guest: Be the opposing fan that you would be ok sitting next to at NRG Stadium. If the people around you are sitting, you sit.  Do not over-celebrate because that is certain to make angry fans angrier. Be a gracious winner. Don’t give nearby fans an excuse to complain about you.

The most helpful tip? Introduce yourself to opposing fans around you before the game.  Be friendly with the usher. It is hard to be mean to someone if they’ve tried to be friendly to you. Most importantly, the nearby fans you try to make friends with will often vouch for you to security if for some reason there’s trouble. Sometimes they will help insure other nearby fans who haven’t met you not to be rude to you.

Be careful with trash talk: Opposing fans may talk trash to you. Take it. Laugh at it. Do not step over the line with a response because you don’t want security to eject you. In addition, since you don’t know these people, you have no idea how much alcohol they have consumed, or how they would respond to what you think is good-natured ribbing.

Have your ticket on you at all times: You may find ushers and security will not let you back to your seat without it. If anyone complains about you, the first thing security will ask is to see your ticket.

And now for the fun tips. 

Traveling Texans fans typically wear Battle Red on the road to stand out to each other and for the team to see them. In 2013, however, the Texans are playing a lot of red-based teams, so against the 49ers, Cardinals and Chiefs, you should wear your Deep Steel Blue jerseys.

A group of fans aptly known as “Traveling Texans” has put together a Facebook page to help plan trips and to say where people are going. Many of the fans who put this page together have been to many road trips, and they want to make it a more the merrier experience.

The Traveling Texans Facebook page will have an event page for each road trip meetup. Road trip events with other fans can be very fun. Be sure to print extra copies of the event page before you leave home because you will be certain to see other Texans fans on the airplane or around town who may not know where the meet ups are going to be. It’s amazing the number of friendships have been created through fans meeting on road trips. It is similar to the friendships made through tailgating.

Texans fans are creating their own fan history and culture from scratch, and I’ve heard reports back from opposing team tailgates and bars about how friendly traveling Texans fans are. I love that. Texas has “Drive Friendly” on our highway signs; we might as well get a reputation of being “Fan Friendly” too.

I’ve always thought that Houston was the friendliest big city in America, and it has been great seeing our fans take that on the road.
