Texans Sellout Streak to End in 07?

Sellout Streak over?

Even though the Houston Texans’ train of thought is that they’ve had 50 straight sellouts in five years of existence, there’s a possibility that the number might not get much higher.  Or any higher, for that matter. According to reliable sources, it appears that the Texans are having trouble selling their season tickets.  Currently, less than 2,000 are available, which means that as many as 1,999 are left — despite the prior existence of a “priority wait list.”
 
So the conclusion may be drawn that after a chunk of last year’s season-ticket holders passed on renewing and after the folks on the waiting list got their chance to buy tickets, there are still about $1 million worth of unsold season seats.  But should any of this be surprising to anyone (including Texans fans)?  After three years of improvement, the Texans stunk in 2005, and then committed the football equivalent of passing on Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson by leaving Reggie Bush and Vince Young on the draft board in April 2006.  If either of those guys were playing in Houston, I’d suspect that every 2007 game would be already sold out by now.  But as in every season, everyone starts at 0-0 and hope springs eternal.
