    I was do as I am want to do. Trolling the Titans boards and came across a thread where a poster asked about the name Titans. He must have been a new guy and my standard answer is that according to Greek mythology a Titan is a child of Uranus. Which is true, but irratates some to have it put that way. Well like a good Troll I wanted a link to a site that actually says it. So off I go to do a little searching and find a link easily. The way the site put it made me chuckle and got me thinking about the whole thing. This is what I posted.

    Now what I started thinking was that Bud had to be Uranus (fits doesn't it). Bresden, the mayor of Nashville at the time of the move could then be Uranus' sister Gaia. Then I put Titan fans and players in place of the Titans, the gods. So they would be the inbred children of Bud and Bresden. That would mean that it would logical that Zeus could be Roger Goodell, the chief of the NFL and if you follow it that far it makes since that he banished Pacman, one of the Titans.

    It has been a long week, but it made me chuckle anyway. My sympathy to all Titan fans.

    I don't need your sympathy. I'm PROUD to be a Titans fan just like you're proud to be a Texans fan. I haven't been on this board in a long time but it seems like you're still obsessed with the Titans. :gun: That is a shame too.....To spend all your time dedicated to a NFL football team and that takes away from your time talking and being exited about your favorite team. I really hope in time that you will seek professional help. Seriously. :cool:

    I think you need mental help just for being a titans fan. But then again you are probably only a vy fan and cling to the titans without knowing there history.

    Seeing as you are are either a child, too young to know what happened here in the mid 90s or a bandwagon fan that jumped on way back in 2000 you could never understand my point of view on the Titans because to understand my point of view you would have to realize that Bud Adams is the sorriest excuse for an owner that sold his soul and traitered out a team I was once a fan of. That's ok though your team is garbage.

    By the way. Thanks for the negative rep points.

    I really don't care about Bud Adams or what he did to your Oilers team. That was a long time ago. I was in my early 20's at the time. I don't cry over the stuff that happened that long ago. Heck, I don't remember half the stuff that happened that long ago. Let it go.

    I too peruse their forums a few times a week, and I get a kick out of the fact how sensitive they are about being such a small market/minor professional sports city.

    As I type this I'm listening to the jukebox play "I hate the titans", but I truly hope we beat the ever loving **** out of Buds Boys this year and make vince eat his "guarantee" of them being in the playoffs this year.

    Man lighten up. He just found the similarities humorous. My bad that you don't understand what it's like to lose a hometown team, and it just now be right at around ten years since they bolted. We here have embraced our new team, but it is still a sore subject and will probably continue to be as long as Bud is running the team.

    That's no myth!

    Alright, I'll catch you up on history: You got our sloppy seconds. Bud Adams is a big, fat jerk. Your franchise has the biggest choke in the history of the NFL. Smurf blue is fugly.

    Thanks, but I don't drink. :cowboy1:

    Bitter? Nah. I'm just stating fact. None of the points I mentioned can really be disputed (well, smurf blue being fugly could be subjective, I suppose).

    I'm actually glad that we no longer have to deal with Bud Adams and his "finer qualities". Dude was a cancer on the Houston sports scene for years. There is a reason why former Oilers feel more love for Houston than the former franchise.

    See, BA, you are probably the exception to the rule for Titans fans. I'd venture that most take the attitude of UTVinceYoung:

    "I really don't care about Bud Adams or what he did to your Oilers team."

    So the history of the team, much less the great players, are lost on Titans fans. Franchise records are just numbers in a book without pictures. The greatness of Earl and Bum and Elvin and Warren, etc., are for old Oiler fans, not Titans fans. Seriously, when Bruce Mathews tried to say that the so-called "Music City Miracle" made up for 35-3, I saw the look on Titans fans' faces. It was the look of "huh?" :um:

    Sloppy seconds indeed.

    And before you feel the need to run smack on our lowly Texans, just remember that your team has won the same number of Super Bowls that we have: 0...except we've only been trying for five years, and what is Bud on now? Well over four decades of futility. (And don't let that number one loser of 2000 mean anything other than what it really was....one yard short and all).
