    I had a dream. I am not one who remembers dreams and really wish I could, but I woke up remembering one. I would like to share my dream, since it is not often that I am able.

    I was at the Texans game as I am every home game, tailgating with the famous Blue Crew Tailgate and talking with friends prior to the game. I could not remember who we were playing and I couldn’t tell because there was nobody wearing anything other than Texans jerseys. I decided to go in earlier than my usual 11:15 time so I would know and I wouldn’t be embarrassed by my absent-mindedness.

    I entered the stadium and got to my Bull Pen seats and realized we were playing the Steelers. The crowd was coming in early and the seats were beginning to fill. They were handing out pom-poms to everyone. We were playing the Steelers in a playoff game…at OUR house!! This would be the first playoff game in Houston for 18 years.

    The Texans were having a big celebration before the game and Bob McNair, the owner of the Texans, told the crowd that tonight we were taking OUR history back. Dan Pastorini, Earl Campbell, Carl Mauck, Bum Phillips, Kenny Burroughs, Billy Whiteshoes, Elvin Bethea…..they were all there. The Texans brought out name after name to resounding cheering and chant of Luv Ya Blue! I think I heard Bum say we were going to kick the GD door down! They played a “new” Texans fight song that went like this…..”Houston has the Texans, the greatest football team. They take the ball from goal to goal like no one’s ever seen. They’re in the air they’re on the ground, always in control. And when you say the Texans, you’re talking Super Bowl”. The whole crowd was singing “cause we’re the Houston Texans…..Houston Texans……….Houston Texans number one!” The pom-poms were all you could see in the crowd, but I think I saw a sign that read. “Love ya Bull”.

    The next thing I knew, it was fourth quarter and we were losing 24-20 when we were driving to score with time running out. Some sort of morphed version of Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart took the snap at the 19 yard line with seconds remaining and threw to the end zone to hit Kevin Walter in the corner of the end zone. I mean the very corner, with his feet near lines as they create the angle of the end zone and he was hit immediately by Troy Polamalu . The officials ruled he was out of bounds as time ran out. The crowd was outraged as everyone could clearly see the catch was made.

    Then, the words “Upon further review,’ came across the sound system. The crowd was so silent you could hear Terry Bradshaw fart from Fox’s broadcast booth. The words continued, “The receiver had both feet in the end zone and control of the ball. Touchdown!

    The crowd went nuts!! The Texans were going to the Super Bowl and the song played on!

    Hey, it was my dream. I can dream, can’t I? For this night, I did, and I am glad I remembered it.:gotexans1

    I still remember that pass from Dan to Mike. Nice dream. Does Bud has rights for that fighting song? I think that song originally made for Fins and they didn't like the song and Oilers decided to use it.

    Go Texans!!!

    Pretty easy dream to interpret, The Crew is there because they provide a bit of a comfort zone. They're the people with whom you share the Texans games. The flashbacks to "Luv ya Blue" and the Texans winning (especially against the Steelers) is your mind telling you that the only thing about this city that has changed is our team and your mind is telling you that the ONLY way the Texans can get the respect you (and many of us) felt the Oilers were denied would be to defeat the team who respectively robbed the Oilers (and by association football in the City of Houston) at their best shot at winning the Superbowl and getting the respect they deserved.
