Although it is scorching hot outside, fall is here and that means one thing for Houston… FOOTBALL.
Yes, the year has come and gone, we are all a year older, and football season is back. Of course we have the treasured Texans you can root for, but The University of Houston is ready to dominate this season with a new and improved stadium, already nicknamed “The Cage.”
As a Houstonian, the demolition of Robertson Stadium was truly a bittersweet occasion back in 2012. The old stadium was the first home of the beloved Houston Oilers and Houston Dynamo and was built back in World War II. While it is sad to get rid of such a staple in this city, the future is looking bright for the Coogs!
Houston started a new era on Friday August 29th and it was truly a sight to see. In the brand new TDECU Stadium the Houston Cougars played UTSA in the biggest turn out for a game ever (over 40,000 people, wowza). In all honesty the beauty of the stadium surprised me, but what surprised me more was the energy of the fans. From the 1st quarter to the last second there was nothing but support for the excited team. Many Houston residents showed up to express their encouragement for our city and I even saw a couple familiar Camden residents, YAY!
With 22 Camden properties in the Houston Metro area, we have a great deal of Coogs calling us home. Not only do we have Coog residents, we also have some awesome Coog employees! I highly suggest everyone to get out this fall enjoy a game over a good hot dog. Check the schedule at http://www.uhcougars.com
Have fun & go Coogs!
