On October 6, 1999 the NFL awarded the Texans to Houston. Where were you when you heard the news? I was driving to work that morning when the news became official, listening to 610 with John and Lance just as I was driving into downtown. John Granato broke the news and said something to effect of if your in your car start honking your horn, we have NFL football again. I started honking like crazy. I got alot of looks from the cars around me. Needless to say, I didn't get much done at work that day.
