Reliant Stadium Opening Night - The Rob Arra Collection
New stadium, new team, new attitude...NFL football is reborn in Houston! After a miserable five-year absence that included a Super Bowl appearance for the old Oilers franchise in Tennessee, pro ball came back with a bang. The new retractable-roofed Reliant Stadium was packed on the first Sunday Night game of the new season, and the instant arch-rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, were in town. While expectations were slight for the on-field performance of the expansion squad, an early David Carr-to-Billy Miller touchdown raised hopes. Then, after two three-and-out series by the Cowboys, magic started to fill the air. With the Texans regaining the ball with 9:16 left in the first quarter, looking poised beyond their years, SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall!
Like all prints in Rob Arra's Everlasting Images collection, the entire stadium is in perfect focus, and as you pan across the image you feel like you are actually there, witnessing the historic upset of the hated Cowboys in week one of season one! From the stadium scoreboards, to the fans in the stands, to the players on the field, to the countless cameramen and even the cheerleaders on the sidelines, it's all here! A stunning piece for the wall of any fan, and a great collector's item for years to come as the Texans franchise continues to establish a tradition of excellence. Worthy of a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home or office.
