    And I don't care who knows it!

    I am not anonymous, I have not scrapped off any stickers off my truck. Have not put away any Texan stuff that is out on display in my home. Still wear my t-shirts and jersey.

    Am I thrilled when they lose a gome - nope. But it is just a game. I don't let a game get the better of me and ruin my Sunday or week. I still have a family to take care of. The sun still comes up in the morning. My grandchildren still come to see me.

    I don't have to sit at my computer and vent my frustrations to people I don't really know and try to ruin their day also.

    Some of you guys grew up in an age where there is a 60 second solution to everything.(Just check the ads on TV or the radio). Most things take time. Some things take longer time. Just ask a LIons fan or a Cardinals fan.

    I am here for the long haul. Even if it takes 2 more years or 4 or more. Doesn't matter.

    Why give up now? I'm in for the long haul. Imagine how great it will feel when we are consistently good and who cares how long it takes.

    I'm a Texan. :texflag:

    I'm still here....griping. :)

    I don't believe things are as bad as they look this year, but that's what's so frustrating.

    We're a better team than we show on the field. Perhaps not playoff caliber, but we are better than our record indicates.

    I'm a Texan fan! Frustrated no doubt, but glad to be here.

    I'm with ya there! Every Sunday morning my #80 jersey goes on and I wear it everywhere that day, (Lowes, Sam's, Wal-Mart, grocery store) and its a cool feeling seeing other Texans' fan having on they're jerseys, t-shirts or whatever and you get that acknowledgment nod passing em in the aisles or wherever. :texflag:

    I Am A Texan Fan! No matter how mad I get at my team, I could never turn my back on them, ever. They're my favorite team in this world and nothing will change about that.

    I still dress up every Sunday in my favorite Texans gear. I still wear my Texans hats everywhere I go. I still have my stickers all over my truck. Nothing is going to change about that. I love my team no matter what.

    BATTLE RED BLEEDER! :texflag:

    I made it this far, no reason to stop now. Somewhere down the tunnel is a Lombardi trophy with our name on it...

    My wife's and my name are on the wall outside of Reliant, we drive 167 miles door to door for every home game, I wear my Texans jersey to work every Friday, and introduce new people to the Texans experience all the time. I have spent more time and money on this particular extra curricular activity more than any other in my life. I am a fan that cares, and I will not stop being a fan in bad times and good times. Some times that means being vocal about your displeasure of the current state of affairs.

    Fire Smith and fire Hoke and win the next two divisional games.

    The bad times of today will only make the good times of tomorrow better and more appreciated. I can't wait for the day when we're talking about how things used to be and laughing about it. Houston is a football town and Texas is a football state.......a football championship in Houston will happen one day and I intend to hang on for the ride until then.

    Didn't you see? Richard Justice says in his blog that Hoke should be the interim DC because he has fire. Seriously.


    I think that it demonstrates character to pick a team that is Your Team and to support it in good times and in bad. It's more fun supporting a team than just being a fan of the NFL. You know, the difference between your child and other people's children. You always want good things to happen to kids, but it means more when it is your kid.

    What are these good times that you speak of?? :foottap:


    As far as Dick Justice goes, he is an example of why the term asshat was invented.

    Mostly in the tailgate so far.

    But I can imagine how wonderful it would be. It's like relativity.

    Those who started out their lives with nothing and then make a success of it often have a greater appreciation for it than someone who just inherited success.

    I hate this team. But I love this team.

    Somehow, the two halves of me are able to co-exist. But it is a tense atmosphere inside this body right now.

    Lots of yelling.
