Default Hello from Houston!

Hey guys- Just found this forum tonight and wanted to introduce myself. I'm from Houston, TX. I was an Oilers fan growing up, but they jumped ship to Tenn, and I was def. not following Bud Adams. My family always cried and moaned over how the Steelers stole that '79 AFC championship from the Oilers, so out of protest to the Oilers for abandoning us I guess, I was drawn in to the Steeler Nation and I've never looked back. By the way- I actually tracked down a DVD of that '79 AFC Championship... and while yes, there was a bad call that should have been a Houston TD, it did NOT decide the game. The Steelers were dominant throughout, and would have won anyway

After the Oilers left there was no NFL football to watch here in town for years, and when the Steelers finally came down to play the Texans in the 05-06 season I was there front row endzone. It was amazing to see how many of us were there... the Houston sportscasters called Reliant Stadium Heinz Field South that day = )

I'll be making my first trip to the burgh in Sept for the opener vs. the Texans. A buddy of mine is a big Texans fan and he is coming with me... should be fun to see how many Texans fans will show- I'm guessing not many. Anyways nice to meet you all, later!

haha no, that was a bit before my time- I wasn't around till '82. The earliest Oiler QB I remember was Warren Moon back in the Jerry Glanville days. I do remember listening to Bum Phillips do the radiocast though... Turn down the TV and listen to the radio for the play by play = )

Hey man! Congrats on supporting the best team in the NFL!!
I live in Pennsylvania. But, my sister lives with her family down in Houston. I loved the place when I visited her a few years back. I plan on visiting again whenever the Steelers play down there in the future. ENJOY THE STEELERS HOME OPENER!
