I feel for Texans fans who were at one time Oilers fans. It has been a dark and confusing world for far to long.
I was one. aj and I were there in Nashville when they were "honoring" Elvin Bethea. It was real weird, the Titans were playing the Texans and honoring a Houston player. Most of the Titans fans were looking around wondering who Elvin Bethea was. I could just hear them during the Moon ceremony... "Why are we honoring the Seahawks broadcast guy?".
I'll always be a Houston Oilers fan...or at least a fan of the memories. It was a successful NFL team that was dear to the city, and we have no reason to be ashamed of the history or our passion for the team.
But they are not, and never were, Tennessee Titans. The players they attempt to honor are just going through the motions of accepting awards from a former employer, but not team. Just because an owner can keep records of a company (i.e. franchise), he can't take the history and memories. Those are for us, hometown fans.
I'd feel more sorry for Titans fans in Tennessee that will forever have to be reminded of records from an era they have no connection to, no memory of, and no emotional ties about. They can see the name Earl Campbell and look at number on paper or stone, but they have absolutely no depth about what he meant to football and this city. It was magical, and I would trade it for nothing.
I WAS an Oiler!! NOW, I'M A TEXAN!!!!!! I lived 36 years with the ups and downs of the Oiler organization. I went to the very first game the Oilers played in Houston, as I did the very first game the Texans played in Ohio, and I have not missed a TEXAN home game since the beginning. SOOOO, I have spent about 41 of my 61 years pulling for a LOSING team!! GAWD, PLEASE, let me see my team win a championship before I DIE!!!!!! I have SUFFERED far to LONG!!!!!
LOL, I hear ya Grandma. I am into this for a little over 30 years. Hopefully you're a fan of some other sports also and have seen your teams win championships (Rockets maybe?), though I know it is not the same when the NFL is your favorite sport.
I did have a great time during the NINERS reign!! During those years I had as much NINER stuff around my house as I did Oiler.lol I support all Houston teams and was very proud when the Rockets, Comets, and Dynamo brought home championships. Baseball is the most boring sport known to man, JMO, but, I watch the Astro's when they are doing well, which is rare. FOOTBALL is my passion though, and I refuse to call it quits, as in DYING, until I see my home team bring home the Lombardi!! You guys/gals might have to push me around in a w/c if the TEXANS don't get on with it, but, BY GAWD, I will see it happen!!
