    Where were you and what were you doing in January 1994 when the Houston Oilers were beat by the Kansas City Chiefs, 28-20?

    My God, Haywood Jefferies, Ernest Givens, Curtis Duncan...and Gary Wellman! Remember that surfer boy?

    I was at Francisco Studios in little China Town, and instead of practicing we had a little TV set up, watching the game. I had been out of HS for about a year.

    I remember looking at the size of Joe Montana's swollen elbow. It was huge! Full of fluid, and I was thinking, "There's no way he's going to pass with that thing." He did. It was a heartbreaker. If only the Oilers had gotten Gary Brown rolling a little bit more, we could have won it.

    Thanks Texans_Chick for the thread inspiration and the memories.

    This except I was four. I didn't get into football until the Oilers were long gone.

    I was 13 and in the Astrodome. But I didn't get to see most of the game because we had standing room tickets only and I didn't find a seat until the 4th quarter.

    But it was cool to be there, just wish I could have seen the game more.

    I was 27, living in Conroe, and having a blast because my band was playing gigs in those days.

    Coming off of the 35-3 debacle, the 1993 season ended up amazing. Starting 1-4 to go on an 11 game win streak was a blast. I was at the last game of the season against the Jets, the famous one where Buddy Ryan punched Kevin Gilbride. We did know know it happened until listening to post-game shows on the way home.

    It was heartbreak the next game against the Chiefs, but that season was a blast. Man, it seems like forever ago...

    Same here, except right when I got into football the Oilers left. Now I fully understand why my damn cusses at our TV every time Bud Adams shows up.

    In McAllen, TX. That loss to the Chiefs stung more than the one to Buffalo the previous year.

    I was 12 and still lived in Salt Lake City at the time. I was NOT an Oilers fan though, I was a Broncos fan, simply because my parents are die-hard Broncos fans.

    Fun fact...Wade Phillips was the head coach of the Denver Broncos during the 1993-1994 season.

    I was 25 and a season ticket holder. The third come from ahead 4th quarter playoff game stung hard, maybe harder than the Bills game. We promptly went to the Volcano Club and got smashed. Good times...

    I was in Wilmington, Delaware watching the Oilers choke yet again.

    BTW, it's been 18 years. I just put this "then/now" image on the home page of Texans Talk.

    I was at that game as well as I said before. I remember hearing about it on the radio on the way home, and then the next day watching his kid get ****ed with for weeks at school all because his dad got succer punched. Lol! It was messed up man. Warren Moon's kid and Gilbride's kid both caught hell every time the Oilers shit the bed somehow man. Kids are brutal.

    As far as that last playoff game went, I was at Pennison's Pub in Sugar Land. Pennison was an ex Oiler and we partied like rock stars at halftime and thought it was going to be such a great game to laugh at for the rest of the half. Boy was the joke on us. I practically cried after that game it was so brutal. I still have not gotten over it.
