I was 21, stationed in Italy and probably full of GREAT Italian food and drunk.

I had no American T.V. stations, no Internet and had to read about the game on Monday morning in the Stars and Stripes!!!

I was sad by the way...

After the Broncos and Bills playoff losses I was numb by the time the Chiefs rolled around. Funny how 18 years later that franchise still chokes in the postseason every chance they get.

Hmm, I was 12, living 30 miles from anywhere on lake conroe and completely uninterested in watching football. Playing was another thing entirely.

I was 19, had finished one year of college, dropped out and was going nowhere fast in my ho dunk small home town. It's a good thing a year later I moved to Dallas, and shortly after joined the military.

I also lost my sister to a brain tumor that March, that's my strongest memory of that time. Love you Debbie!

It was my senior year in HS, and I was at my friend's house watching the game on his projection screen TV. We were both so damn happy before the game started, we put together two king sized zig-zags, and rolled FAT ass J! We were all set.... then Joe Montana happened.

Was 8 y/o.

After the game, my grandma (on my pops' side) came over to poke fun at the Oilers. "Bring that 46 defense!"

Funny and sad at the same time. Watching the Oilers lose a lead like that again, for the 3rd straight playoff was like..."Really?"

If I'm not mistaken that was the year that both the Oilers AND the Rockets went undefeated in November wasn't it?

Odly enough I was in Conroe Texas. There used to be a boarding school (Memorial Hall) that I went to for one year while my dad lived in China. I was watching the game and a friend of mine was a Chiefs fan. He was telling me how we were going to choke. I said it was impossible (it couldn't possibly happen 3 years in a row.)

I remember how badly it stung. Especially after the Bills fiasco.

Mike

Just went and checked. If you want to talk about an amazing run for a city. The Oilers/rockets combined to be 21-0 from Oct 17 - Dec 2. Perhaps even more amazingly we were 31-1 from 17 Oct - Dec -22. I don't know that a city has ever had that kind of prosperity in two major sports over basically a 2 month period.

Yep, and oddly enough 1994 would be my greatest year ever as a sports fan despite the Oiler choke job. Both the NBA Rockets and NHL New York Rangers won it all that year which I am a huge fan of both. That's why I wear a #94 jersey for hockey, and I even have a Texans 94 jersey.

I was 12 years old at the time. I was not much of a football fan, or even a sports fan. The weekend was when Dad and I did "projects" around the house, so I did one of those with him during the game. I think I turned on the TV after the game and they went over the highlights. I remember my reaction to this day "typical Oilers!"

I was a 22 year old student at North Texas and watched that game from my dorm room.

Drowned my sorrows after and made a few drunk dials.

I was living here but I wasn't at the game. I was out of town on work-related travel.

I wasn't surprised that we lost to Montana, Marcus Allen, and a Derrick Thomas-led defense. It seemed that, back in those days, KC always gave us fits. Went back to check the stats in that game; even with Munchak & Matthews anchoring the line, KC had NINE sacks.

What really p-o'd me that year was that Bud went thru with his threat to fire everyone and trade off all the good players on the team.

...damn. I had blanked all this from my memory banks. Who brought this up anyway?
