    Since there's not much else going on, Rockets-wise, at the moment, I was thinking about how I've lived in Houston half my life but wasn't there during the title years, and wondered how many of you were in the same boat.

    Just post where you lived during each title run. Here's mine:

    94: San Diego
    95: New York City

    All of Houston was just 1 street back then IIRC - Richmond. I don't think scary places like Katy existed yet. Definitely no Cinco Ranch.

    94: a bar down by NASA road one that I can't remember the name of anymore

    95: A buddy's house party in Houston

    After the first chip, I remember driving around with the windows down with my brother whoopin' and hollerin' and high fiving random people doing the same thing. Great times...
