    ClutchFans as a website turns 20 years old today. It started on August 8, 1996 with an article about why the Rockets should go after Charles Barkley.

    Thanks, Clutch, for the amazing job you do for this site! Been reading this site since I was 10 years old when you had the baby Hakeem, Charles and Clyde on the front page.

    Clutch,

    It is party of my daily (hourly :] ) routine to check out what is going on in Rocket land. I wouldn't be as big of a fan of the game if it weren't for this site, it gives me a since of connection and closeness to the team that I never had when I was ignorant of CFans. For that, I thank you!

    Well done, Clutch. After lurking for a couple of years, this site has been an abnormally large part of my life for a really long time. It's a wonder I haven't been fired solely because of the amount of time I spend here.

    What a great thing you've created, Clutch. It's been and continues to be a fantastic community. Thank you.

    Typing on an IPhone and not proof reading your post is a really bad idea. Stay in school kids.

    Awesome, thanks Clutch! I check it at least 5-6 times a day. It's part of my daily ritual now.
