    602. When you first heard of 7-Up's "Rocket" Cash, you just knew it had to have SOMETHING to do with the Rockets.... but it didn't.

    603) You calculate that at the rate this list is going, we'll reach 1000 by July 2nd.

    (Unless Lil Pun continues his recent post rampage, then we might make it by the end of may or early june)

    605) You refuse to point out several duplicates in the list because that would hamper the effort to get to 1000.

    606. When you are left alone in the house, you pretend that you are on the floor with Hakeem and co. playing in the '94 and '95 NBA Finals. When you win the championship you start "hugging" your team-mates. Then your mum walks in and sends you off to a psychiatrist...(well the last part isn't true- yet).

    607. You want to get the letters H-O-U-S-T-O-N somehow tatooed onto the top row of your teeth, and R-O-C-K-E-T-S on the bottom row.

    608. You buy 2 of every magazine which features anything to do with the Rockets. One to keep in tact, and the other to cut out pics/articles etc to put in a book.

    609) You wear a shirt given to you by your parents that is obviously one size too small, and makes you look foolish, just because it has the Rockets logo on it.

    610) You would rather meet Matt Bullard or Charles Jones than meet Jordan.

    611) You know that if you had the chance to tryout for the Rockets for one day, that you would impress Rudy somehow, and be allowed to play on the team for one year.

    (You gotta love moms)


    612. your mom saves the ROckets Extra sections of the Chronicle and sends them to you

    613.Your mom sends you a Clutch bear(see also #577)

    614. Your mom sends you a birthday card which reads: " THis Just IN! HOuston Rockets win Championship!." She actually took the time to make the card, knowing that YOU KNOW they didn't win the championship, but it is still the coolest thing anyway.

    615.Your mom makes SURE that before you come home to visit her, she talks to her buddy and scores a couple of tickets to the Game at The Compaq Center, (every time, without fail)

    MOTHERS DAY IS ON MAY 13TH!!!!!!!

    616. your DAD makes SURE that he is the one and only person with whom this experience should be shared.

    617. you and your dad have one of those "Priceless" moments as you sit and watch the Rockets, drinking Miller Lite from the beer man.

    618. The way your dad says "Rockets" is the coolest..... think Tony The Tiger.

    RRRRRockets!

    619. your dad and you truly bond on the telephone when speaking of Rockets news, stats, and players.

    620. your dad does the best analysis of the Rockets: "When does Shandon ever show up?"

    621. your dad PLAYS GOLF with Gene Peterson(no bull****) and when you lived in Austin got tickets to the last game of the season in the Alamodome(97- right before we went on to sweep the wolves), with post game access.(they won [​IMG])

    622. You move to New YOrk City, and your Dad
    goes the distance by once again scoring tickets from GP, getting tix to the game at Continental Airlines Arena against the Nets, again with post game access(they lost [​IMG])
    (next year I'm hoping for MSG!)

    624. You were at the game where Barkley and Shaq scuffled, and after the melee, and the ensuing crowd madness, when Barkley is walking off the court and it's as quiet as a church you yell, "WAY TO GO CHUCK!" so hard you think your lungs fell out... because you had crappy seats.

    625. You create an excel spread sheet for the Rockets stats and enter in every game while saving every box score to your hard drive. Then you get to compare their 1st half of the season against their 2nd half stats, and make many other useless comparisons and number crunches (like when Shandon was in that slump).

    626. You got to pee next to Otis Thorpe at Bennigan's after a preseason game against the Mavericks in which you had the best seats of your life. Elie, Sammy, and a few other Rockets are there too (um, not in the bathroom).

    627. You always wear your Rockets gear on tests days at UH (for luck), or after an important win.

    628. You argue with your accounting professor that the Spurs are on their way down and the Rockets are on their way up, when he comments about you checking your web page before class in the lab and tells you to go to a Spurs web site.

    629. Your friends know the best way to get you riled up is to say they think Ewing ranks higher than Hakeem on the all-time center list.

    663. You redo BGM's calculations and determine that the actual date we hit a thousand will be June 20th provided Lil Pun doesnt go on anymore runs.

    664. You are siked because you will be coming back from Europe on that exact day and as soon as you land in the US no matter what airport you are in and how late you are for your connecting flight you log on to check whether or not we made it.

    665. You try and convince people that there have been some double posts but there have also been some numbers with 2 posts under them so it all balances out.

    666. You make sure to post <font color="red">KARL MALONE</font>'s name next to this number.

    667. You plan to throw a party to celebrate the rockets winning the lottery even though you know they have less then a 1% chance.

    668. If anybody says that the rockets have a 99.9999% chance to loose you tell them thats great because that means the rockets have a chance and you know they will win.

    677. You get chills down your spine when you see the footage from 1995 when Rudy T, triumphant again, utters those immortal words.

    678. You don't even have to write out the words, cause you know every Rocket fan knows that you "Never, ever, underestimate the Heart of a Champion"

    679. You don't like the Lakers, but you want Shaq to do well sometimes because he says nice things about Hakeem.

    680. But you still don't like Kobe. But you did like when he worked Pippen, and exposed him for the fraud he was last year in Game 7.
