Astros fan since 1973 when I saw my very first Astros game. I have loved baseball all of my life and until I realized I couldn't play anymore after 3 knee surgeries.....I wanted to play at the highest level.
I was an Oilers fan and now am a Texans fan. I'm still "bent" over the Mike Refro call in the '79 playoffs against the Steelers. I never agreed that Carr was the right pick..I wanted Peppers. I am a hopeless optimist and am very excited about this team regardless of expectations. GO TEXANS!!
I have had a love-hate relationship as a fan of the Rockets since 1979. I was never more angry with a sports franchise than when 1) They chose Rodney McCray over Drexler in 1983 and 2) When they had three first round picks in 1998 and they left Rashard Lewis in the green room. But, I will admit; when a team wins forgiveness comes quickly.....but it did take bringing Drexler home to get #2.
I love my hometown teams!
