Default bad homer

I wasn’t always a homer. I mean, I wasn’t born one, right? But somewhere along the way I crossed that line in the sand.

When was that?

Was it at the East Long Beach Boys Club, where we could play sanctioned tackle football with no pads against those chumps from West or the thugs from North?

Was it in High School, rooting for Poly High because I lived in that section of Long Beach during those years and that was the only sane thing to do?

I know it wasn’t USC because O.J. was long gone. There was no glove, therefore no love.

Maybe it was Fresno State.

When I moved from Long Beach to Fresno I kept my heart back home with the Rams, Dodgers, Lakers, USC and of course, Long Beach Poly High. Yessir you betcha. The Rams left after I did, but I was stranded in Fresno a long ways away (for those of you who don’t live in Texas) from any NFL team. I stayed a Rams fan because I left before they did but it wasn’t the same - I couldn’t go actually watch the games, which is by far the best way to see a game, replay be damned.

It’s just not the same. I was basically homeless.

Then of course the Rams won the Super Bowl, which was great fun because we broke the thumbtack’s hearts real bad at the end there. HaHaHa.

But it just wasn’t the same.

Anyway, back to the story. Turns out, Fresno State football turns out to be great fun. I go to home games regularly and I see all these future NFL stars play football, and some even from Fresno State.

I’m talking guys like Henry Ellard and Stephone Paige and Michael Pittman.

I’m talking Lorenzo Neal. I’ve never seen a scarier football player in my life. I don’t care how big you are. Hint for you fantasy league guys – draft whoever Lorenzo is blocking for.

When Big Lo went pro I paid attention to him but didn’t become a fan of his team just because he played for them. I stayed home. I’m not a former thumbtack’s fan because of Volek or a Bears fan on account of Berrian. I loved watching Logan Mankins pancake DE’s for four years but still can’t respect the Pats on account of what da Bears put on them in ’86. In fact I think I hate them. They’re gettin’ a little too uppity lately.

I saw Marshall Faulk get held under 100 yards rushing (barely) but catch 200+ yards receiving with two long TD’s in a blowout with the Bulldogs winning 63-35 or so. Faulk’s from San Diego, my adopted hometown. Didn’t make me a Colt’s fan.

David Carr tore it up during his years at Fresno State and got drafted #1. That didn’t make me a Texans fan.

Houston made me a Texans fan.

Houston with your five years of empty sorrow.
Houston with your shiny new football team in Red White and Blue.
Houston gettin’ whupped real bad-like.
Houston with your banner still raised.
I understand.
I empathize.
I am with you.

I am homer.

Being a Homer is not a bad thing. Its something I myself am rather proud of.

Although it does make Monday mornings hurt a little more.

Me too! I AM A HOMER AND PROUD OF IT!!!

I just wrote this business named www.truetotexas.com an email concerning his sign on the side of Katy Freeway that I have to look at everyday. It says "David Carr is driving Houston to the bottom".

I nicely tried to tell him what a classless jerk I think he is. Haha! Made me feel better.

So if you are inclined, send him some emails. I'm sure he would love them.

I am a TRUE homer.

ummmm, ok......well just to let you know, we dont care about Fresno State and we dont care about California. Once Carr is gone you can stop being a homer/fan of our team and start following Beach Volleyball, Water Polo, or whatever you Californias confuse for sport.

we dont need fans like you at this time.....blind puppy dog love for Carr is an affliction

Yeah, a businessman is telling the truth and he is a classless jerk to you. continue supporting bad football players and continue to show that 'Real American' attitude and attempt to censor him for telling the truth.

sometimes the truth is ugly and this truth is beyond ugly....oh and yes you are a true homer...not exactly something to be proud about

Did you read his sig? Did you read his post? He is linked to the team - not DC... So quit allowing your blind hatred for Carr affect your comprehension of someone's post...

He didn't say he was a homer b/c of Carr smart guy. He said he was a fan b/c even though we have sucked for so long we are still here fighting and cheering.

Take your hater glasses off for a second and realize someone outside of Texas was paying us a compliment.

Thank you.

I wrote this post as an ode to Houston, a clarification of what I consider to be a "homer" and as a suggestion that it really doesn't need to have anything to do with "home".

Second Honeymoon, you're entitled to your opinion and even your anger. But you don't know me so what say we just wait until Carr is gone and both the franchise and myself remain.

Take a deep breath and count to ten.
