    Thanks, tinman! One of my biggest regrets about moving to Austin is that I had to watch the series on TV. Being there must have been wild!

    Time to stop living in the past though learning from it would be a good idea. I doubt it will happen again though, that championship team was so unlike many other champions that I cannot imagine we'll ever see one like it. People praise that 94-95 title so much, yet forget we were terrible that year considering we were the champions. It was the 93-94 team that had the 15-0 run, the 22-1 run, the Olajuwon Dream Season, the Choke to Clutch City series, the blasting of the Jazz like they were nothing and the unforgetabble hard fought finals. Sure 94-95 kiss of death and Olajuwon's show vs. the Admiral were great, but 93-94 is the more memorable, more important and special title.

    On the court and off the court during our run, it was as good as it gets.....so much going on in my life (family and friends I was close to were still around)...makes you really appreciate things.

    I watched part of the series in the Quarter with my woman. On Sunday she had to be back for work at 8 am. We left the casino/boat at like midnight or one and while headed back were notified over the radio "O.J. Simpson is now a fugitive"...talk about surreal..She made it to work and then we watched the game at home that night.

    I'm proud to be a Houstonian....Dude, tinman....you've got me tearing up.

    Thanks man.

    Never went to the parade, but great memory of the Championship run. I can't imagine the streets would be THAT packed if we were to win one today.

    Wonder what it looked like for the 2nd title...
