    NFL Network is showing "Greatest Games" You guessed it; Oilers 35/Bills 38

    Still makes me sick 10 years later!

    Over here.
    More like 20. I don't blame you, but I believe I'm over it now. My faith in the Run 'n' Shoot died a long time ago and I never believed the Prevent D was good for preventing anything but winning.

    You know, it's not often you remember what you were doing on a date long ago unless it's a great or very bad day, example 9-11 most of us remember what we were doing when we heard the news. I remember sitting on the USS Peterson DD-969 watching this game. By halftime I was talking a lot of smack to all the sailors rooting for the Bills, I was the only Houston Fan in the room. I don't want to talk about the rest of the day.

    Not sure why that game would be nostalgic.

    My husband & I were discussing that as well. He was at his parents, I was on our bedroom floor folding laundry! I also remember I had just bought him a CD ROM for his birthday ... it was $300!!! Dayum ...

    I then remember seeing Warren Moon on Arsenio Hall show ... Arsenio was like "Dude, what happened??" .... ahh yes, good times, good times.

    BTW - thank you for your service!

    I didn't grow up here (Austin & Dallas). My first Oilers game was the Kansas City Joe Montana playoff game. That one game makes me understand Oilers fans.

    There are threads on here from time to time about this subject, and the last time it came on I posted that I watched the first half and then turned it off. And tried to pretend the rest never happened. It still hurts....

    OK.

    Enough time has passed and I'm far enough away from most of you so you can't easily track me down and beat me to a bloody pulp but... that entire loss was my fault.

    My wife and I had flown in from Arizona for some family get together or something. We both had to work the next day and my wife had bought the tickets two months before not knowing there would be an Oiler playoff game on that day.

    We watched the first half at my Mom's. It was great. We were so psyched and happy. We even saw the interception at the beginning of the second half.

    And then we had to leave for the airport.

    We were in the car on the way to the airport when the wheels fell off. We listened to the whole thing on the radio.

    I've never seen that second half.

    And I've lived with the guilt ever since then of knowing that if we had just stayed at my Mom's house, we would have won that game.

    sigh

    Surely the greatest game was the 1982 AFC Divisional Playoff game between Miami and San Diego.
