I've already tried to follow several other teams (Including the Pats who I'll be seeing play vs the Rams in London in Oct) but following successful and established teams hasn't felt 'right' for me as I don't want to be another bandwagon fan...my love of all things NFL has increased steadily but I want a team to call my own....to follow thru the good and bad...I do believe I have found my team in the Texans ....I really like them because they are the newest team...haven't won anything yet(AFC South aside..which is awesome) and have only made the play-offs once. As someone quite new to following the NFL seriously I figure it'd be great to be part of a new team and I can never be accused of being a bandwagoner....I look forward to the Texans making history by winning the SB sometime !
P.s ...Met Ray Lewis/Nate Solder and Steven Jackson in London recently at a tiny fan forum I was fortunate to be invited to promoting the upcoming IS game in Oct...those guys are scary big up close
...Ray lewis was great...answered my question and took a pic with me...Nate Solder is HUGE. I hope the Texans come play a road game sometime but more so I would love to visit Texas sometime as I hear its awesome!
See you on the boards
WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME! Love to be more international... as long as the Texans are the road opponent. As one who attends the games, I do not want to lose a home game to a "cross the ocean" trip. The season is way too short. We only get 8 regular season home games per year.
