Default Re: Where Were You The Last Time We Had Playoff Football in Houston?

I was 32 years old and living in Glendale, CA. I must have watched the game with my wife at home. The strange thing is that I don't remember the game at all.

Went to bed that night, probably totally depressed, and was awakened at 4:31 am by the Northridge Earthquake. Spent about 3/4's of a minute absolutely convinced that I was going to die.

I think the earthquake and the craziness that ensued wiped out all those memories.

You dont remember Keith Cash (KC's TE) scoring a TD and huling the ball into Buddy Ryan's face... (Or at least a poster of Buddy Ryan's face)?

Default Re: Where Were You The Last Time We Had Playoff Football in Houston?

Ugh, I was 15, and I remember thinking we had an excellent shot that year, as I had thought the year before against the Bills. As the Oiler curse would have it, we were taken out. I remember Buddy Ryan punching Kevin Gilbride, they replayed it during the game it happened in if I remember correctly. The Rockets bringing Houston it's first professional sports ring a few months later softened the blow though.

I was 36 and was on an all night job ( after having worked all day). The oilfield is that way sometimes. I didn't get to watch or even hear the game, but I was pretty upset when I got to check the final score. That was a game I just knew the Oilers were going to win.

Same age and also a student at UH at the time. I remember during the Bills game that I was sitting against the couch in my parent's living room munching on potato chips and some funky new dip my mother-in-law had decided to try. Anyways, everybody else in my family (large at the time) were huge Cowboys fans and I was the only Oilers fan (since I was a little girl during the Luv Ya Blue days).

Boy was I giving it to them at halftime. And then boy were they giving it to me as the second half went on. And I actually did cry when the game was over.

I was 15 and I honestly don't remember where I watched the game. I believe I had just discovered beer (and how good it is when it hits your lips) around that time, so thats probably why I don't remember.

I was 36yo then at my buddy Rotten Red's house. We fired up the pit the night before and put a big ol' brisket on. First half was great. We were smokin' beer and drinkin' weed like ya do when your team is on.

Was depressed later.

My God, Haywood Jefferies, Ernest Givens, Curtis Duncan...and Gary Wellman! Remember that surfer boy?

I was at Francisco Studios in little China Town, and instead of practicing we had a little TV set up, watching the game. I had been out of HS for about a year.

I remember looking at the size of Joe Montana's swollen elbow. It was huge! Full of fluid, and I was thinking, "There's no way he's going to pass with that thing." He did. It was a heartbreaker. If only the Oilers had gotten Gary Brown rolling a little bit more, we could have won it.

Thanks Texans_Chick for the thread inspiration and the memories.
I was in china.....

On the way to work in the train (Central line in Tokyo) checking score on Japan Times. Depressed all day. The train as usual, very crowded and remember I made some ugghh noise when I found out the score and people around me just stared like if I was a psycho.

I was living in Austin, and drove down when my friend scored tickets to the game. We were on the field level around the goal line. Ironically, I'll be at this game with the same friend. Hopefully, we'll be leaving the stadium this time smiling.

I think I was at the last playoff game the Oilers won in Houston. It was against the jets in 91..... maybe. After the game the scoreboard read "hope to see you in two weeks"lol. That **** never happened.
