    122. You chase the Rockets team bus up 8th Ave in Manhattan after a last second win in MSG shouting and clapping and generally jumping around acting like an idiot.

    123. You regularly listen to the audio files of Gene Peterson calling seminal plays in Rocket history and get all misty-eyed.

    124. You confuse friends and family by periodically and for no apparent reason shouting "Kapayaa!!!"

    125. You still have the sweatbands Allen Leavell tossed to you when you were 12.

    127 - Your personalized signed basketball by Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler sits prominently displayed in glass on your bar even though your wife hates it there.

    129. Despite the fact you live on the other side of the planet, and have never met, or seen any of the players in person, you talk about the player like you actually know them.

    130. You never went to high school without being tired from staying up till 1am waiting for NBA scores.

    131. You bedroom contains a Houston Rockets wall, Hakeem Olajuwaon wall, a Rockets news clippings wall and a second Houston Rockets wall!

    132. On a train in Sydney you start to cry when you read a small article about the Rockets beating the Sonics in the playoffs.

    133. Number 34 is your lucky number, followed by 22, 3, 25, 17, 4.......

    134. You were the only person at school that wanted be be a center rather then a guard.

    135. You become violant when anyone dared to say Jordan was better then Olajuwon.

    136. You have the dream shake down to a fine art....even though your a short arse.

    137. You were genuinely optimistic when the Rockets picked Jason Collier in the draft.

    138. Your palms are permanantly scarred from digging your fingernails in them during every Rocket cliffhanger.

    139. You bawled when you found out Sam Cassell and Robert Horry were traded.

    140. When you pass the Summit on the way to work, you almost get in car accidents admiring the building and reminiscing the glory days.

    141. You broke a hole in your apartment floor from jumping up and down so hard after Mario Elie's "Kiss of Death."

    142. You've memorized every player response in the Rockets official yearbook such as Steve Francis wanting to be President or Mo Taylor's favorite movie being Back to the Future (what the hell).

    143. You were in Vancouver at the Rockets game cursing the fans and throwing tomatoes and batteries yelling "How do YOU like that?!"

    144. You secretly wished you were that 9-year old girl in Denver that Stevie Franchise toppled over so that you could get his game jersey, autographed sneaks and game tickets. [​IMG]

    I didn't cry, but I started cursing at my TV when I read on the bottom of the screen on ESPN2 that two of my favorite players were traded.
    And I didn't have to jump up and down in my apartment, I was at the game jumping up and down. [​IMG]

    Someone who is about to admonish another must realize within himself five qualities before doing so (that he may be able to say), thus:
    In due season will I speak, not out of season. In truth will I speak, not in falsehood. Gently will I speak, not harshly. To his profit will I speak, not to his loss. With kindly intent will I speak, not in anger. -from the Vinaya Pitaka

    146- You're friends with turbo and clutch

    147- The guy who works at pizza hut in the compaq center knows you by name

    148- You yell at anybody ,who walks into the room while you're watching the game, that they just jinxed the Rockets and tell them to get the hell out.

    149- You know Rudy T's phone number, called him, freaked out when you heard his voice and hung up on him.

    150. You resurrect this thread.

    151. Every clothing combination you wear has at least one Houston Rockets logo.

    152. You buy the Reebok Wink DMXs just because Steve Francis wears them.

    161. You develop multiple personality disorder by watching too many up-and-down Rocket games.

    ------------------
    Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon is the greatest player in the history of basketball. If you disagree, you are not a Rocket fan.

    162. You're becoming dangerously depressed because your pc keeps malunctioning when you try to enter game chat.

    163. You're afraid your "loyal chatter" status is going down and no one will remember you when you finally get back in.

    165. You dream that when you play NBA 2000, that when you win the title with the Houston Rocket team, it will really happen!

    166. You are a fanatic from half way across the world (Australia)

    168. You decide to make it a personal challenge to prove Azim is a pessimist for thinking we can't reach 1000

    ....give me some elbow room, I'm just getting started. Besides, I'm looking for some Vengeance anyhow, on "realist" lottery talk.

    169. You regret not registering yourself as Vengeance instead of the more peaceful heypartner (*cough* | *cough*) when you must do a full-frontal assault on posts about tanking.
