That includes the ones I got when I met Stan Musial, Harmon Killebrew, and Rod Carew. I know, I'm crazy that way.
See, for me I was a big Clemens fan! So I followed the Red Sox and Wade Boggs/Mike Greenwell. I still follow them to this day, and I was so happy for them when they got their ring. Curse of the Bambino lifted! lol

In basketball, and I'll probably get negative rep for this LOL, but I loved Larry Legend. Dude could flat out ball, and while I am a HUGE Rockets fan, first time I saw Larry play was in the 1986 Finals against the Rockets.

In Football, my favorite player was Bo Jackson as a kid. I had the poster with the shoulder pads/bat. Almost all of his cards. I thought the dude was great. Read his book, "Bo Knows", which I remember being a good book, though I don't know if it was the fan in me or not....

As far as Houston sports goes: Dream, Biggio and AJ, all day. I loved the Oilers and I guess Campbell was my favorite, but I was young when I saw him play, other than that, I loved Chris Dishman and Ray Childress, dude was a hitter, well so was Moon, but that's a different story.

Sorry about that, I took a trip down memory lane on a completely irrelevant thread! haha

Went to Ohio a couple of months ago for a short vacation. Sanduskuy, Cedar Point, Cleveland, took in a Indians game and some sight seeing. It was a good time.

Let's not even talk about basketball. Loved the Rockets, went to games, and cheered for them above all others... but loving Larry isn't near a bad in Houston as my favorite player, Stockton. Ostracized is putting it lightly.

Don't feel bad about veering this train off course, I do it often and what I refer to myself as the digression king.

I feel that one too! We were the first from our family to migrate from Wisconsin. My whole family on both sides are Packers fans! Even my dad who grew up in Northern WI. He did take me to Oilers games and asks me often about what I think about the Texans but I believe deep down he's still a Cheesehead.

I did get a good laugh at my Cousin, they live in KS and attended the Packers at Chiefs game. He was sooooo excited before the game and for some reason he would respond to my pokes (all verbal) after the game...

Just wanted to add that I have the hightest respect for all the Texans Fans that do not live in Houston. We all put up with a lot more crap than those who live in/around the city but continue supporting, come hell or high water!!!!

GO TEXANS!!!!!!

*EDIT* Amazing80-I just looked at where you're living and my family is from just down the road in Burlington. Both my Grandparents are buried there and I still have relatives in the area. Wow what a small world.
