    The last Cowgirl playoff victory came in 1996?

    Just thought that this deserved a thread by itself.

    Gas was still around $1.00 a gallon
    The Dow Jones avg was around the 5,000
    only 0.4 % of the global population used the internet
    The Oilers were still in Houston

    I just did the math (yes, I'm a little slow in my old age), but I was still in my 20's (albeit late 20's, but...).

    I made a bet with a coworker the year the Texans came into the league. I said the Texans would win a playoff game before the Cowboys would. Been worried a few times, but the Boys have pulled through for me big time so far. Now, Texans, pretty please, with sugar on top, get to the playoffs and win a game this year!

    Independance Day was the top movie, the first Mission Impossible with the couch jumper was released.

    Michaled Johnson was the talk of the Olympics
    Tiger woods first began emerging on the Golf Scene
    Mike Tyson bit Holyfields ear.

    Ray Lewis was drafterd in 1996
    Brett Favre was addicted to Pain Killers, was in the middle of his back to back to back MVP seasons and the Packers won the Super Bowl.

    Eddie George was Rookie of the Year.

    Didnt the Oilers also beat the Steelers that year?
