    Looked up flights out of IAH. Round trip through Interjet Airlines(Mexican company), only $200. Dont know about game ticket prices but would be cool to get a group together for this. Ive always wanted to go to Mexico City and this just pushes me a little harder to do so.

    Not really trying to get a group together, more so a group meet up. If there were enough willing to do it though, I wouldnt mind calling to see if there are discount rates for flights/accommodations and so forth.

    My friend is having his bachelor party in Mexico City when the Texans play...so unless I have something random pop up in my schedule that I cant get out of, I will be there for the Texans/Raiders game.

    Be careful in MX city - biz friend got a cab ride - they took them to a corner where they were robbed at gunpoint - let the hotel pick you up - stay close to the areas of high interest

    Yup, that's unfortunately the sad truth. Do not take a Taxi in South America basically. All they see is just a rich american with a fat wallet, and they won't think twice for a damn second about robbing you. I literally remember being robbed on the bus at gunpoint at the age of 10, just for a stupid watch.

    Why would anybody risk getting food poisoning or worse getting robbed at gunpoint/killed?

    No way I make that trip.

    That's fine man, i'm not disagreeing with you about living life, but you have to be at least smart about it. It's kinda hard to live life when buried six feet under. I mean, I plan on visiting El Salvador with a friend over the summer, but were literally going to spend a majority of our time in the capital, around the resort. Especially when going to a country you've never lived in, it's a dangerous idea to just freely roam around everywhere without some precaution.

    It's sad, but it's true.

    To foreigners, you are just some rich American, and they honestly won't think twice about killing you just for the paper in your wallet. And you could say, "well, the police won't let them get away with it" and that's partly true. But for one, justice works differently in countries other than the US, and for some crimes that we might dish out 20 years, they could consider those worth 2 to 5 years. And two, who won at the end of the day? Him. Yeah, he's in jail, but who's dead? You. That's why I say just take precaution, because visiting some other country and potentially risking getting robbed in a taxi, is just not worth it, and it's for damn sure not worth your life.

    Just bought mine. You can call the Texans office (832)667-2002 and buy them. Only upper level left, 75 after shipping. Feeling excited. :grin:

    Stay in your shell my friend.
