    Congrats Clutch. Clutchcity.com (then cluctchcity.net, then clutchfans.net) was the first online community i was a part of and the only online community i'm still a part of. Can't remember exactly when i joined, but sometime between 96' and 99'. God bless you Clutch; thanks for 20 great years of instigating Rockets fandom and creating the best fan forum in the NBA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you Clutch and Clutch Crew for an amazing fun-filled ride as we sit with a special insider's virtual court-side seat into the Rockets organization. I especially love the peak into Rocket's practice at training camp (when you're allowed in).

    Thanks for making it the best fan site ever! Nevermind that because of this site, I don't get much work done!!! LOL

    Thanks Clutch and congrats. I started lurking in 1998 when I 1st got internet at the house. Used to pay through the nose for that dial-up, lol. For me about 18 years worth of hours of entertainment and enlightenment about the greatest franchise in Houston.

    Long live Clutchfans.

    Crazy.. I remember going into my freshman year of high school when I found "Clutch City '97"

    This site has been the one constant in my life throughout all these years. Thanks Dave/ Clutch for making this happen.

    Dave, congrats on the website birthday. 20 years and stronger than ever! What an amazing resource and community.

    Honestly, I don't think I would be "as big" a Rockets fan if it weren't for the ClutchFans component. It fans the flames, good or bad. Always something interesting or something new to learn.

    I am proud to have been around the site from the beginning. Here is to another 20 years! And some Rockets championships!

    From what I recall I think Clutch City was owned by the Rockets or too close to an NBA trademark or something and then a publisher bought over the Clutchcity.net name and Clutch had to change his site to Clutchfans. I don't know how long the non Clutch run clutchcity.net site lasted but it was junk.
