    Looks like it was posted on youtube by Brakos!

    I need to rep him at least 17 times for that.

    This was the first game I ever went to as a kid. My dad showed up and pulled me out of school early on Monday morning. We drove 6 hours from Brownsville to Houston to watch the game. We sat in the high school bleacher styles seats in the end zone called the Temporary Pavillion.

    One of, if not my best childhood memory. I was hooked on the Oilers from that moment until Bud backed up the U-Haul and moved them to Tennehayseed.

    I look forward to giving my kids some of those same memories with the Texans!

    It sure would be great if the Reliant crowd was that loud prior to kickoff against the Colts this year. The Dome was rockin' and the pom-poms waving even during team introductions.

    I still get goosebumps thinking about that game. My dad took me to that game and I remember walking into the stadium, the Luv ya Blue song was playing and the pom poms were waving. (the funny thing about those pom poms is that it was a simple stick with about 10 columbia blue and white pieces of paper on them but they were awesome!)

    *looks at arm* I have goosebumps again.

    I love Gifford's call on the Oilers first touchdown..."Earl Campbell, forget about it" :D

    Houston Wins!!! What a great game! Damn, I loved my Oilers...

    I will never forgive you Butt Adams. But I am truly thankful that we have the Texans and a great owner like McNair.

    Rep to gwallaia for finding this and sharing.

    Neg rep to Brakos for not letting us know he had put this up...





    :jk: I will rep brakos82 when he shows up again.
