    I was just kind of thinking about this. Obviously, outside of Houston, the texans get very little love from other cities around texas. So now I have the question, where outside of houston has a strong Texans following? Just for kicks

    Living in Virginia for 5 years, I never met another Texans fan.

    Living in Boston for 6 months, I have randomly met another fan in a bar once. It was pretty fun.

    Out of Texas fans seem to be pretty scarce

    It is growing in San Antonio (South Dallas to those in the area). See more jerseys being worn, more car decals. It is nice not feeling so alone.

    (one a side note to this thread, I sometimes wonder if the team name has hindered the fan base outside the area (that and the not winning))

    I've always heard that San Antonio has a lot of fans, those that haven't been corrupted by Jerrah's team.

    I do what I can in SLC, but I have never seen another Texans fan outside of Houston.

    Been repping the logo around the globe, folks like it. Austin is a Cowboys town, but we have a sizable population of Houston and Nawlins folks.

    Win, so we can order off the dessert menu.

    Not from Houston, but my mother is. Grew up watching Hakeem and Warren Moon. Been a fan of Houston sports team forever. I lived in Corpus and now in Austin. Both are dominated by Cowboys people, Austin does have a base of Houston fans though and you see them when on Sundays. I rep my Texans and Rockets gear all the time though. Even got a decals on the car. :cow:

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    Where's the best place to get Texans decals? I need one for 3 motorcycles and 2 cages.

    Need to start representing each time I'm out and about.

    I saw a Texans fan at last Sunday's air show here in San Antonio.

    If Texans fans exist in SA, they only wear their colors at home.

    I'm starting to notice more Texans fans here in the ATX, but still mostly Cowfuq fans.

    I have met Texans fans in Washington DC and randomly met some Texans in SF at the seal pier that is famous but I don't know that they were Texans fans per say :runaway:

    There's quite a few in Beaumont, but that's definitely close enough to Houston to see often.

    There are a few of us in Seabrook. 4-5 in my complex but they will not get on Texanstalk so they aren't real fans and I tell em so.

    gotta get to the playoffs to develop stronger ties outside of the Greater Houston area. I think we will see more Texans love in the valley and into the plains once the team is over this mediocre hump they seem to be dry humping every year.
