    Born and raised (with season tickets) in Houston. Now live in San Diego, CA. Favorite poster: Hey Partner. Favorite rockets memory: thanking Rudy and shaking his hand for bringing us a championship!

    Born and raised in Seattle. As a kid I would go to the Sonics preseason camps. At the time, it was the only Major League Pro team in town. Moved to Kingwood in 1982 and became a Rocket fan immediately. Lost interest in the Sonics when Karl was fired.

    Damn, there's a lot of people here from my hometowns...
    Born and raised in southwest Houston (Alief-hell yeah!), the 184th D.C. moved me out to Austin this year by force, but the only thing I miss so far is channel 20 and their televised games.

    Born and raised in Houston. Went to Bellaire HS, Houston Baptist Univ, and Baylor Med School and now live in SugarLand.

    My favorite Rocket moment was attending game 7 vs. the Knicks. I sat in Sect 114 just across the aisle from the NBC booth (platform) set up in Sect 115. When Maxwell hit the 3 with about a minute and a half left in the game, I had tears in my eyes-80% from pure joy and 20% from relief of frustration of never previously winning a major championship from a Houston sports team.

    I remember looking over at Dr. J looking panoramically at the crowd and soaking in the moment. And best of all seeing Peter Veasey with a stunned look on his face.

    I remember after the game in the Summit traffic amidst all the shouts of joy and honking, I saw 2 elderly ladies get out of their Lexus and start dancing around their car. I remember thinking, "Now there's something you don't see everyday."

    Born in Wisconsin, lived in Kingwood for 17+ years, went to UT for 4 years and now I'm stuck in Berkeley for several more! I haven't had consistent Rockets TV coverage in 6 years. This site is about the only thing keeping me up to date. Thanks Clutch!

    I guess I should change my user name.
