first of all I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm from the northern part of Italy (near venice) so probably the little italian voice in your heads is different from mine, that is because America's idea of Italians is mainly derived from the southern part of the country



This question has a very strange answer:
I discovered I like Football last year when I saw the SB (colts vs saints)
Then I decided I wanted to follow the regular season, for my luck it was already october so the season (2010-2011) was at the beginning (week 5)

I went to wikipedia and I opened the pages of every team in the NFL

Then more or less at random I closed the tabs of the teams that did not impressed me, for stupid reasons like the symbol or the color of the uniform

Actually there was a lot of randomness

Then with the few teams left I readed some news on the wiki page, in the end there were left only Bengals, Ravens and Texans

Finally I choose the texans because I was born in 4-27 so I'm a Taurus like Toro the mascotte (april-born Taurus like me), also Toro in Italian is the word for Bull/Taurus...

The first Texans game I watched was the 2010-2011 week 2 come back win against washington, that is as today one of the most exciting games I've seen

I hope you like my little story of how I became a Texans' fan
That's a great sotry, and completely different than most of us here. It is interesting thst you narrowed down to three AFC teams just by purechance. My friend (who is a Cowboys fans) and I have found we are loyal to the conference our teams play for (me AFC and him NFC) and there is no real reason for this. Other conference teams just aren't as interesting for us to watch.

Also, a bit of warning for you: as a fan of the Texans you are almost certainly subjecting yourself to a life of heartache and misery. It's just what the Texans seem to do for some reason. Just be prepared with that and when the success does come you can enjoy it. Honestly, I feel kind of bad for my kids knowing they will likely be Texans fans and thinking about how many times the team has broken my heart. It can be rough at times, certainly.
