    Oh well. It was fun while it lasted. Because Texas Stadium can be as quiet as a morgue sometimes, you have to find ways to generate artificial noise to cause false starts on the opposing team. Whenever the opposing QB broke the huddle and approached the line of scrimmage I started blasting my air horn until the ball was snapped (or a false start occurred). The entire cycle would start again the next play. Against the Eagles, I think there were 4 or 5 false starts in that game. After the first false start against the Lions, security confiscated my air horn, thus ending my pleasure watching QBs like McNabb spike the ball in disgust. Anyway, here's a video clip my friend took of the air horn right before security confiscated it:

    That's funny, and very shrewd. I think I heard it!

    One of the things I tried to do with the airhorn was use it in a staccato fashion (short beeps) rather than just one long uninterrupted beep. This way when the opposing QB is behind the center yelling "hut hut hut," one of my staccato "beep beep beep"s might confuse an opposing offensive lineman and cause him to jump. It actually worked for the first half of the 2006 season. Now, I just need to find another way to generate some noise.

    After all the hot dogs, burgers, chicken, and sides we eat before the game, I think Taco Bueno has my photo behind the counter stating, "Do not serve this guy in Sundays."
