Bill Clinton had been in office only one year the last time there was an NFL playoff game in Houston.
As you might have heard, there's another one coming up Saturday at 3:30 p.m. It's sold out, but if you're one of the lucky ticketholders, there's some info you need to know.
-- Security will be tightened up at the recommendation of the NFL. The Texans say you should plan on giving yourself an extra 15 minutes to get to your seats.
-- And they want you to get to those seats early. "The Texans strongly encourage all fans attending Saturday's game to be in their seats by at least 3 p.m. to participate in the pregame activities and be ready for kickoff," the team says.
-- Non-premium parking lots will open four hours before game time, but because it's a late-afternoon start, vehicles will not be allowed to line up along Main or Kirby or any other streets before that time. Stadium gates open at 2 p.m.
-- Your pre-game and halftime entertainment: Clay Walker.
"Before the game, Walker will break out a special playoff-inspired rendition of 'Football Time in Houston,' the unofficial Texans theme song," the team says. "At halftime, he will perform a collection of his greatest hits."
-- Be loud. Be very loud. Remember, it's your duty to rattle a rookie quarterback.
