HOUSTON (Astrodome)

  • HOUSTON COUGARS FOOTBALL
  • GAME DAY:  Multiple
  • OPPONENT:  Multiple
  • CAPACITY:  62,439
  • THE TRIP:  A high school friend's dad had season tickets to Houston Cougar games at the Astrodome and invited me a few times, in the 1980's.  These days the Cougars play in Robertson Stadium, on campus, which I look forward to visiting soon.
  • IMPRESSIONS:  It was the Astrodome so it wasn't perfect.  Being teenagers, I'm pretty sure we spent as much time trying to score beer ("Dome Foam") as we did watching the games.
  • WE LOVED:   Good ole Southwest Conference football, and scoring beer!
  • TRAVEL TIP:  Visit Goode Company Barbeque, the best barbeque in Houston, before the game.
