Speaking of Championships though... does anyone think we're a little premature wanting to name our defense? We haven't won a division championship yet much less a conference or league championship.
Connor Barwin started it all. Tell it to him.

BTW, I agree with you. I think Barwin got ahead of himself.

Default Re: Is it time to crack out some Clutch City??? I think it is.

I always thought the term "Clutch City" as it related to the Rockets was because they were put into positions where they had to win games or their season was over.

Quote:
Clutch City is a nickname given to the city of Houston, Texas after the Houston Rockets won two NBA Championships in 1994 and 1995. The name was given as a response to a front-page headline by The Houston Chronicle declaring Houston as "Choke City," It also refers to the clutch performance showed by the Rockets during their championship years.

------------------------------

The Rockets recovered from being two games down to the Phoenix Suns in the second round of the playoffs, to advance to the finals. Houston once again went down by three games to two to the New York Knicks, but they managed to win the last two games on their home court, and claim their first championship in franchise history.

I thought when they closed the city of Detroit, Houston took over as the largest producers of automobile "Clutch" parts. No?

Default Re: Is it time to crack out some Clutch City??? I think it is.

With us being down to our third QB, and still winning and having a chance to clinch playoffs, I dont think it's too far out to suggest we can borrow some positive history from the only Houston pro team to have won a championship.

It's nostalgia (in my mind). We had Stros in the WS but got humiliated by getting swept in 4. So bringing back the only positive vibe we've had (Clutch City) doesn't have to be over analyzed.

Clutch City indicates preseverance and being clutch when it counts. Sounds like the 2011 Texans to me.

I'm with you GP, I like Clutch City a lot better than Bulls on Parade.

I just thought we were talking about the origin of "Clutch City"

Yep, I agree.

I like where GP is coming from. Clutch City represents Houston. I just hope that the Texans "clutch moment" is NOT having to win against the Titans to get to the playoffs. My heart can't take that kind of clutch right now.

Default Re: Is it time to crack out some Clutch City??? I think it is.

in all fairness. I can't see how it can be Clutch city and refer to the Texans.. esp this time.Clutch city was the Rockets and they coming back time and time again in the playoffs to win the championship.. also 1st team to beat 4 50 win teams to get the crown..

that team was special.

I am not putting down the Texans.. it is they are taking it one game at a time and I know as fans we want to get excite.. hell I am excited.but.. .. Texans aren't in the playoffs yet and haven't made any noise either yet in the playoffs. right now..

crutch city with next man up

The Town that gave birth to "The House of Pain" will not now excrete the afterbirth that is "Bulls on Parade".

Won't happen. It does not sound "homo". It sounds "gay". There's a difference however subtle it might be.
