Lightbulb To The Fan’s…This One’s for YOU!!

Here's to all the True Blue Texan Fan’s…and you know who you are! We, the Carr Family wish to express our deepest and warmest “Thank You” for all your gestures of kindness during the past two weeks. The beer incident at the stadium, on game day, was definitely not an indication of how our true Houston Texan’s fans behave. The cards, letters and posted comments on this board have taken, what was meant to be a mean spirited, cowardly act and turned it around to something truly amazing. Houston is a great town, with wonderful, down to earth people in it; we experience it on a daily basis. During the past 3 years, the FAN’S have been nothing less than “jubilant, respectful” people who are always ready with a smile or politely handshake. Living in a bubble has its challenges, as you may imagine, but from our view, you have made our transition a smooth one. As a whole, Houstonians are a people devoted to this fine city and their TEXAN’S.

This recent unpleasant incident will in no way hamper our trust in the “good in all people” if it did, the world would be a scary place to live. As David’s devoted mother, my heart was truly touched to see the outpouring of support and affection that you, the fans have shown my son David and his beautiful, loving wife Melody. They have been in awe and so appreciative of every card and letter. No one can promise that games like the last will never happen again, because football is a game that can bring your emotions to their highest highs and lowest lows in a matter of seconds. What we can promise to each other, is to be responsible and respectful and to try and make sure that everyone who passes through the gates of Reliant Stadium will experience something impressive! Let’s strive toward that goal, so visitors leave knowing, as we do, that Houston has the BEST FANS in the NFL! David is a fan himself who loves the game and wants so desperately to bring a championship home to Mr. McNair and Houston. He’s a proud man, very determined who works extremely hard at what he does, to achieve that very goal. This is an exciting time for Houston, as our young team begins to head into the future with dreams of many championships yet to come. There is work to be done, but so much to look forward to, as we go onward, “LOUD & PROUD” eager and enthusiastic!

Thank you once again, from the bottom of our hearts. Your expressions, no matter the size have meant so much. I am putting together a scrap book of all the wonderful cards and letters you’ve sent, for David and Melody to keep. It will be a constant reminder to them & our family of “unity and true kindness”. As the years go by, one day many years from now, David will pass the torch and it is this mother's highest wish, that my son will look back with fond memories of his career here in Houston and that he will leave behind a legacy that you, Houston and he can be proud of. Our family has much to be thankful for, as we anxiously await the arrival of David & Melody's new baby Carr…he will be our 5th grandbaby since moving to Houston. It must be something in this Texas water? We’ll keep you posted! A special thanks to my personal friend Sandy (She Texan) for all her support and friendship, she is what the word FAN stands for and a great friend! Thanks to you Vincent, for all your help and for being so accommodating to me and our family in posting this “Thank You”.

God Bless You All & God Bless TEXAS!

MomCarr8, David & Melody and the entire Carr family

Wow, very impressive that you took the time to write that great letter. Thank you so much, we appreciate all that your son, and your family, has done for this city.

Best wishes to all of the Carr family during the New Year, and GO TEXANS!

It took a lot of class to keep this sort of thing fairly "internal", as the few people that engage in this sort of behavior does not represent the average Texans fan, or average Houstonian. I hope that whoever was responsible for it was dealt with.

You gotta love the Carr family. Your family may not have originated in Texas, but im proud that I can call you Texans. We couldnt have asked for a better "first family" for this franchise. Thank you so much for your response, and the reassurance that the acts of a few fools did not sour yall to our city.

Cant wait for next season

(P.S. I hope David is pushing for some offensive line help.. we all want his career here to be long and injury free)

Thank you for taking the time to post your message, Mom Carr. It means a great deal to me, and I'm sure other fans as well, that you take the time to post a message such as this. I am so proud to have David as the leader of our franchise. I'm extremely proud of the job that David has done in representing our Houston Texans and the city as a whole. I personally feel that when the choice was made for David to lead our team, it was the right, and a great choice. I'm proud of our achievements as a team, and David's as well. David is a class act all the way...and that includes the entire Carr family.
I look forward to next year when we make it into the playoffs. I am confident that David, along with our much improved Texans team will take it to the next level next year. If disappointment is expressed on this website from time to time, it is out of frustration (as David himself has expressed publicly). This team has come so far in such a short time that we tend to lose sight of how young it really is. They are playing like a playoff team at times.
God willing, David and our entire Texans team will stay healthy and avoid injuries and will take us into Playoffs and eventually to Superbowl heights in the near future.
If we haven't said it before...."Welcome to Houston, Carr Family. We are proud to have you", and we hope that David and the entire family are here to stay.
And yes....Houston Fans, (as does the Carr fam) we do have alot of class. And don't think that the rest of the world doesn't notice......I was a volunteer on the Superbowl committee and heard nothing but praise from all of the visitors I met. Houston made a lasting impression. A GREAT ONE!


THANK YOU,
DAVID AND MELODY
MOM AND POP CARR
and all of the CARR-lettes

Thanks for taking the time to write the letter and I am glad that you realize that incident is not a representation of how all fans feel. Yes we get upset with David at times when things don't go as we would like, but he is the leader of our team and with that comes the target for alot of the blame when our team loses. I am impressed by the way David has handled this situation and not made it openly public. That shows a great sign of maturity and I am confident he will be the man that brings Houston its first Lombardi Trophy.

Thank you, Momcar8. Your family is obviously very close. We are very proud of David and his dedication to the Texans. Now, I can say that I'm even more impressed with his Mom. You have raised a good family. As far as I'm comcerned, Moms are the greatest gift that God gave to us. You make me proud that you are in Houston. :texanprid

Thank you CARRMOM8! We love you and your family.


The reason that MOST of the Bull Pen stays at thier seats until all the players have left the field is that we have an overwhelming love and respect for the players and families and if you check the Bull Pen after next game you will see us thanking each player, win or lose, for thier efforts.

Your son is the leader of our team as well as our emotions. We will celebrate with him in victory and die with him in defeat and I feel that every fan here died just a little when the story of what happened to Melody and kids was released. The shame I felt is now at ease with your wonderful and graceful letter.

God bless you and you family.

I just read the other day that Houston placed in the top ten for friendliest city; Charleston, SC is #1, I think.

Anyway, after having visited your city and stadium a couple of times, after tailgating with the enemy, after reading the other thread and this one, it is easy to see why Houston is in the top ten.

Congrats!

Mrs. Carr,

What a great post!!!!! My mother passed away 5 years ago, well before her time. Your post reminds me of exactly the things she would have said in your very same situation. Thank you for the warm reminder of her.

We are truly a better community with the addition of the Carr's. There is little wonder that the Texans chose, as their cornerstone draft pick, a fine young man with a great loving family. From reading your post, it's evident that the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

Here's wishing you and yours, many happy and successful years in Houston.
