A neighbor last year actually put a fake pile of cow patty w/ a Texans sticker on it, inside my mailbox with a "how bout them Texans" note attached!

Retribution can be soooo rewarding

Losing doesn't effect me the way it did when I was young. I suffered through some mighty lean years. We will call them the Ed Biles years, and for some time thereafter. It seemed hopeless, and I would just be terribly down all week. Now, it bothers me all of Sunday, and into the week, but I don't carry that weight on my shoulders like I did when I was a 20 yr old. I guess you could say that I have come to realize what's truly important. The other thing is that I am beginning to feel an emotional detachment kind of thing. Like I almost just don't give a rats *** anymore. The fish rots at the head, and all I see is a head that has been cut off, and a body that stinks, with flies feeding off it, and maggots coming out of it's stomach. Until the "head" is replaced, the body will continue to rot, and I will continue to become less and less emotionally attached.

Now, when they win, yes, my mood is lifted the entire week, and I have a bounce in my step that just isn't there when they lose. I guess you could say I am affected more positively when they win, then negatively when they lose. I'm just not sure a win right now would give me as much bounce in my step as usual, because really, nothing will have changed. Until fundamental change has occured, the situation is hopeless.

When I was a kid (early teens) I would get so upset by an Oilers loss I would rip posters off my wall. I got grounded for a month after our loss to Buffalo. I still get really into the games wins bring me way up and losses bring me way down but not to the point of breaking things. I guess as I get older the less destructive i'll become when my team looses.

Here's a little something that I learned that should help all of us.

When we have a bad day at work.... The Texans don't lose any sleep over us why should we when they do.

When I was a kid, that damn team of ours would drive me up the wall and I would be ticked off all week. I'm a fan but I just don't put that much value on something like a sporting event. I enjoy watching and it's great when they win but I'm not going to get bent out of shape over it. I think I have spent too many years where I can't see ANY games to really be that in touch with it any more.

Can't really understand grown men and women crying because "their" team lost. I think it's funny actually to watch people get all worked up. Where I watched the game this weekend there was a Cincy fan jumping around like an *****. He didn't talk trash but everytime something didn't go right or the Texans started looking good he would have a fit. If the Texans would have won I think his head would have exploded. I used to be that way, just think I grew out of it.

When I was in highschool I would fight you if you came and said something like Oilers suck. I am not kidding. The crazy part is how I would go about doing it. I would act like everything is okay and then later in the day when you didn't see it coming I would just kick your ***! I put a kid in a trash can and rolled him down the stairs one time.

Then the team moved and I realized how much of a business this is more than anything else.

I'll only admit to a tear in my eye while watching one sporting event.

Game 7 of the Rockets vs Knicks.

That was pretty emotional for a longtime Houston sports fan to finally see what a championship is like.

As for losing...I tend to get frustrated but not really angry.

I honestly think that if the Texans won a super bowl, i would tear up. Especially since ive followed them since their inception....they are like my baby. Im watching them grow up...but they are having a little trouble.

Yikes, haven't heard that name in quite awhile. Those were bad years to be a Houston football fan, without a doubt.

Please, though, for the sake of football karma, never mention that name in this forum again. We don't need to take any chances, 'eh?

Good post, man, and I agree with you 100%. I let myself feel up when they win, and I control my mood when they lose.

Remember, folks, happiness is a choice!

I get depressed for a day or 2, I had a good friend who totally lost it all week long over an Oilers loss and I swore I would never get like that, my wife thought I had lost my mind last weekend, one minute Im throwing my hat at the tv and cussing, then I switched to the Stros game and was trying to get high fives from her.

I get pretty depressed after the game. I don't watch much football after that until the next week.

I think the losses will be harder when the Texans are expected to win and don't. The Oiler losses in the early 90's would kill me because they had so much talent that they never seemed to live up to.

This season has been tough, but I can't ever see myself giving up on the team no matter how bad they look. I just have this feeling that when we finally do win having gone through these hard years will make it that much sweeter.

I know someone who always makes fun of me for caring so much about the Texans because they "suck". But I know as soon as the Texans become good he will be right there rooting for them with me as if he had been the entire time. Something dishonest about that in my opinion.

Just messin'.

Fortunately or not... I think I've grown accustomed to their current style, so yeah - I get upset right after the game but by the next day I'm over it to a degree. I'll still discuss it if need be, but it's more to state some facts and such. Now if they win - it's more of a "WTF they won?!?!" and yeah I have a better week.

St. McNair save the fans. Deliver us from field written notes, and lead us into the promised game. Amen.

Ya know, I have thought about it some more and I think that I am just apathetic. I am so used to seeing Houston be a failure, crash and burn in every sport, that I am conditioned to expect the worst. Yeah, I know, the Rockets, whoopee. No one does anything the 18 years of my life I live in Houston, I go to boot camp and MCT and everywhere BUT Houston and these pinheads go on a 15 game rampage to open the season. I go to Hawaii and they decide to win the Championship. NONE of the games of which I got to see because the freaking time change is so crazy that the games came on at 3 in the afternoon.

Yeah, I'm a little bitter. I guess I am just used to the pain so I can get over it easier.

I will say though, I was never a hockey fan till I got stationed in Hawaii. My room mate was from Detroit so I kind of became a Wing fan because of him. That was great to see, to have all your teams be nothing but a pack of losers and to finally have one that was a winner. That was really different. Yeah, I know that Dallas has the Stars, but I refuse to have anything to do with that place.

Then you are in for a terrible year. But I honestly know how you feel. I am the same way. I never expected much of the Texans until this year. I am thoroughly disgusted with the way we are playing as so many other fans. Who do I blame for this? Capers......

[quote=rockabilly]I was wondering if for anyone else out there, the Texans losing can make your week miserable and non-productive.

In a wierd way when the teams I root for loose I come out ahead!
My wife gives me pitty sex when the Aggies, 'Stros, Rockets or Texans loose!
When they win I am usually to drunk and cocky to get any "lovin"!
Needles to say rootin for the teams I do (especially the Ags) gets me plenty!

And so how do you feel this morning.... As Houston sports fans we are probably in need of MORE therapy.

I feel like I had open heart surgery with no anesthectic. If the Astros don't win in St. Louis, 35-3 may be erased as the greastest collapse ever.
