I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and I was a fan of every Houston team from the day I was born. My earliest sports memory is going to an Astros game at two years old at the Dome, and Jeff Bagwell (my favorite player) came up to me and handed me a ball.
Five years ago, I moved up to New Jersey, and I was confronted with a new reality of the sports world. A good number of New York sports fans seem to believe their teams are unstoppable (even when they aren't), and they make sure to let everyone know it. The constant heckling of these fans, however, did not diminish my love of Houston sports in the slightest, in fact it only enhanced it.
Of all the Houston teams, I have always been most dedicated to the Texans. Now, as the Texans have finally made the jump to playoff contenders, I am extremely excited to cover and write for my favorite team on the planet.
Hey Matt, I have a Houston-related question for you if I may please?
i went to the playoff game in baltimore last year, and that is what all the ravens fans were telling me, was they didn't know we were that good. people just think its the texans of old, and have not found out, barring injury, this could be a very very dominant team.
Good to have a fellow houstonian on this website. I actually put something like what you said about the new york teams in a comment i left. saying how the houston teams are quiet and just go about their business the right way and are never in the media or getting into trouble. i think these are the reasons espn and even B/R overlook the houston sports teams on a national level. I believe we are the least talked about SB contenders, maybe in the history of the league.
Thank you sir! I'm not an official FC yet. I have been a Texans FC before and I am just getting back into it. Hopefully within another couple weeks!
Jersey?! Lived in Gillette (near Summitt) and West Long Branch (near Asbury Park) until the
mid-sixties. Have been in H-town since '77. I was going to suggest meeting for a beer, but given the distance let me offer a virtual substitute: http://beeroverip.org/
Thanks Matt! Glad to be part of the team. Are you also a Houston resident?
Mathew, how are you doing? Your father sent me this link.
