I've been waiting a couple of days to make this post. I thought I would take this random milestone opportunity to reflect on my 4 seasons as a texans fan, and my time on this message board First of all, I would like to say that some of the finest people I have ever spoken with reside here. Vinny, Double Barrell, Texan Asylum, Herv, Texans Chick, Jerek, AJ, Led, and so many more of you have made me feel nothing but welcome here. This has become my main source for not only sports news, but world news, political discussion, and a place to go whenever I need somebody to listen. Second, a special thank you to Bob Mcnair, because if not for this team, I dont know who I would be watching right now. You made me a football fan again, from the first day i got my 32 "Houston" academy jersey, to the day i toured the Temp offices they had....good times by all. As far as the Texans themselves go...I've never had an opportunity to meet any of the players, but I feel like the players on this team are truely players for MY team. I have so many great memories of the games on the field. While I am on the subject of texans memories, let me speak on a subject rather close to my heart. The texans have helped me form a bond with my father that wasnt so reachable before the season. I went to my very first NFL game with my dad, sat and watched my texans beat the new york giants that inagural season. I had the most fun of my life on battle red day halloween, watching one of the best interception returns i will ever see. Thanks Faggins! It brought a bit of routine to my life. Every sunday during the season, i would wake up, go eat breakfast with my dad, talk about the game coming up, watch it on TV, fix a lunch during halftime, and cheer until my lungs hurt. I remember how happy he was when i opened my Andre Jersey at christmas, knowing he was both of our favorite player. I feel like I have grown as a person, and as a fan, standing by a team going through one of the most miserable seasons a fan can endure. Hearing about my team being accused of throwing games for a college player was heartbreaking. I remember getting my hopes up soooo many times, and having them crushed. I've been the only player in the sportsbar cheering against the masses, and represented my city with pride. I hope one day i will have a little boy so i can share my team with him, and be that type of father. Finally I just want to say thank you. Although i havent met any of you in person, I am proud to call some of you my friends. The most knowledgable, personable, spirited, intelligent, passionate, and fun fans i've ever been around live on these boards and in this city. Thank you all for enduring this little soapbox moment, i just wanted to share how much all of this has meant to me.
