Default Re: To all the fans who have been there,

I remember how excited I was when they announced we would have a football team again.

Unfortunately, having gone off to school in North 'Missippi' during our 1st season and those thereafter, I wasn't able to watch a lot of games on TV. I do remember my GF at the time, and I, sat and watched the Dallas/Texans game on espn? in the dorm room. She didn't get espn so we had to watch in between the fuzzy lines and couldn't hardly hear anything over the static. Amazing...watching a football game like that! LOL

I will say, I caught every game I could and would come back home to always watch the Indy/Ten/Jax games when they were wover Xmas break. And I will admit I didn't become a "Die Hard" fan untill the 2-14 season ironically.

I think with the whole Bush/Young/Williams debate made me love the Texans even more. I wasn't in the Mario group untill I read the Michael Smith article a week before the draft and was like "Oh crap. we're not going to pick Bush. He is absolutely right. We need mario more." So I prepared myself those few days untill the announcement before the draft and tried my hardest to break it in to friends up at school so I wouldn't be ridiculed as hard. But that didn't happen. I heard it all last season as everyone else did...but funny enough, it made me love the Texans that much more.

There were def. those times when I caught myself saying Man Vince is exciting or Gosh Bush would have been awesome...but always defending the Mario pick...I never gave up. It looks like the 2-3 year time period is true about DL. Babin was really starting to shine while switching to DE, TJ has really stepped it up...and Mario is only going to get better. I have HIGH hopes for this DL in 3 years when Amobi is a 3year vet at age 23, Mario, TJ..etc.....wow we'll be stellar.

To make a LOONG story short. My favorite part of being a texan fan over the year was wearing my Battle Red Mario Williams Jersey out to the Bars the night(s) the Saints played in the playoffs. Oxford was literally covered with Deuce, Brees, and Bush jersey's that night of the NFC championship game. And I stuck out like a sore thumb... and that let everyone know I was a real fan.

Default Re: To all the fans who have been there,

I've been a fan since before we had a single player, so this is a very gratifying time for me. It seems like I have paid my dues and can now reap the rewards. It's so easy to bandwagon, but the emotional payoff is not the same. The honey tastes so much sweeter if you have been fed a steady diet of gruel for five years.

It's kinda funny. I walk into work this morning, and a couple of different people greet me with How bout them Texans. One lady said she went out yesterday looking for a jersey, and that her husband watched his first football game in years, and didn't even know what a challenge flag was. But, there they were, out shopping for jerseys. She also said "one of our receivers, I forget his name, got hurt". Ya, real fan there Donna.

Welcome aboard. The bandwagon is filling up, but there is still some time before the train leaves the station!

I have a picture of myself lifting at a powerlifting meet in 2000 wearing my Texans t-shirt under my singlet.

Even though I'm a newbie here, I've only missed one game since their inception; the Minnesota game, and that was because I won a vacation to Jamaica. If we win next Sunday, I predict that the walk out of the stadium will surpass the one from the 19-10 Cowboys game (and that is my most favorite sports moment ever).

ESPN pointed out tonight that when a team starts 2-0, they make the playoffs 66% of the time!

Default Re: To all the fans who have been there,

I hardly ever post but have been a fan from 02. All the heartache. The great (for us) year of 04 with a real crappy ending. Thinking we get about .500 in 05... not quite. 06-The pummeling we took from the Cowpokes and the Patriots...I was ready to call it a season and then Christmas Eve. It is nice to get some respect now, but I do see the bandwagoners eyeballing us (as they did the Saints last year). I promise you, if we beat Indy, there will be a tide wave of front runner like you've never seen. I guess you got to take to good with the bad.
