    Hey if you all really want me to continue on to 2,000 I will do so but a a very slower rate. I was just in a hurry to get to 1,000 because so many people doubted that it could be done or said we should end at a lower number. I love proving people wrong. [​IMG] But if someone doubts that we can get to 2,000 I'm not going to speed it up I going to go at a steady pace but all along we will prove the wrong...AGAIN!!! [​IMG]

    363. You went to St. Olaf college in Northfield, MN because Lisa Malosky went there. (this is true, although not BECAUSE of Lisa -- I found that out later.)
    364. You hated Charles Barkely when he cheap shot Hakeem on a wide open dunk at the end of Game 7 of the 1993-94 Western Conference Semifinals against the Suns.

    365. You've adored Charles Barkley ever since he became a Rocket.

    366. Since you don't have Direct TV (what am I, made of money?!) whenever there's a Rockets game on, you plant yourself in front the TV watching CNNSI, or ESPN2 or ESPN News and either cheer or groan whenever the score of the game comes across the ticker at the bottom.

    367. Either that, or you sit in front of ESPN.com, and continually reload the game update page.

    368. You believe that by being a good person on gameday, somehow the basketball gods will reward you with a Rocket's victory.

    369. You're friends are SICK of you always playing as Houston on NBA Live, and have threatened to never play with you again unless you choose another team. Consequently, you haven't played against a human in 4 months.

    370. You believe that every television show, every newspaper columnist, every media outlet is vehemently against the Rockets and their many loyal fans.

    371. You turn to Classic Sports every hour on the hour just to see if they're showing any of the Rockets many memorable playoff games.

    372. You curse at the T.V. and go into a fit to find out that the ONE time they do show a Rockets game on Classic Sports, it's Game 6 of the 1996/97 playoffs against the Utah Jazz where Stockton hits the game winning three.

    373. You watch it anyway.

    374. In it's entirety.

    375. And you hope to God that somehow, someway, THIS TIME the outcome will be different.

    376. You believe that, had Barkley not gotten injured during game 4 of the first round of the 98/99 playoffs, the Rockets would definitely have defeated the Jazz and won the series, and would have gone on to beat the Bulls in the Finals. No doubt about it.

    377. You recognize lines from the two Clutch City videos in previous posts. (ie. "Bamboozled") It makes you smile.

    1024)You believe, if not for the bad call on an obvious 1 second late tip'in by David Robinson on the last game of the 92-93 season which gave Seatle homecourt advantage, Rockets would have beat Seatle and most likely made it to the Finals that year.

    1025)You did the head bobble in unison with Horry everytime he slammed

    1026)You wish Horry had participated in the slam dunk contest

    1027)Rockets would have beat MJ and the Bulls in the finals both years they won it

    1028)You kinda feel sorry for Nick "The Brink" Anderson, but not really

    1029)You bet 20 bucks that if New York got to the Finals in 93-94 Houston would beat them(You never saw the loser again, but always have a smile on your face when you see a 20 dollar bill)

    1030)You prayed New York beat Indiana in 93-94, cause for some reason you felt Pacers had Rockets number that year, but you knew you could beat New York.

    1031)Watching Clutch City, you feel like it was destiny to have tied the 15-0 record by beating NY and also beat them for the Championship

    1032)You still think Ainge is a punk for throwing the basketball right in (mario's?) face.

    1033)You take joy seeing Joe Kleine almost crying after Mario gave the "kiss of death"

    1034)When you do that "this is for the game, 3,2,1..." you imagine your playing for the Rockets in the championship but for some reason that 1 second last until you make the game winning shot

    1035)You were in Awe of Hakeem when he sat down and just took in the ora of the second Championship

    1036)You can't stop thinking about who we will draft, imagining what kind of plays they will make with Steve

    1037)Rockets would be in the playoffs if not for Kennedy, Grrrrr! Son of a #%^%@!!!

    1038)You call in sick so you can see Hakeems comeback against the Suns, you don't mind too much even though we lost, cause Hakeem was simply amasing

    1039)Kenny Smith is scared to death of the Devil, D. Harper

    1040)You got really tired of Barkley's "backing in-dish out", never got tired of Barkley or the 3's made form those assist

    1041)it is 4am but you can't stop, your too excited

    1042)You watch closely the 2001 playoff commercial of all past Champions to made sure they don't leave the rockets out, you tear up when "Don't ever..underestimate the heart of a Champion!" graces the screen

    1043)You love saying energizer bunny

    1044)Kevin Willis was a Godsent

    1045)Tied or down 1, closing minute of the game, it was automatic, Hakeem was getting it in the post and making a jumphook, dreamshake, or turnaround...automatic

    1046)Everytime Francis shoots a 18 footer you yell "That's Money!" as it hits nothing but net

    1047)You have a special dance that overwhelms your body if the Rockets make a gamewinner in the closing seconds(somehow you continue to come up with funky new moves)

    1048)No Cat! No Cat! No....YES CAT YES! (With a "I knew he would make it" giggle)

    1049)You dread any Los Angeles Clipper games, you look forward to Los Angeles Laker games

    1050)Defeating seeds #4,3,2, and 1 without homecourt advantage is one of the greatest feats of all times

    1051)When the Rockets lost a game, your brother would try to make you cry by rubbing it in your face, saying they will never win the Championship, this doesn't make you cry, it makes you real mad so you spray unshaken (so it's slimey) party string all over and in his underwear that are in his drawer(you don't get in trouble cause your Mom is a diehard Rockets fan too [​IMG] Woohoo, haha Sucker!)

    one more, sorry can't help myself, soo many good memories....just flashes of joy, grins....

    1052)Even though you don't like the city Houston that much, you stay so you can continue to watch and be a part of the Rockets

    1054) You wake up and stare at this thread...drinking coffee and post something about another post just to help the cause...because it DOES matter to you.
    1055) You get to work and stare some more thinking, worrying, "How will we ever get to 2000?! Maybe I should have another coffee."

    We are at post number 1056. So whoever posts reasons next start it at 1057...nevermind I'll do it.

    1057. You throw keg parties during the Rocket games

    1058. When the Rockets don't make the playoffs you call it the Depression.

    1059. You have Rocket player plaques.

    1060. You loved seeing Compaq Center's crowd during Eddie Johnson's buzzer beater.
