Favorite Team: One of my very favorite teams (the other being the Houston Rockets) is the Houston Texans. The Texans are a very special team and organization to me, not only because I was born and raised in Houston, but because I have followed this team passionately since they debuted in 2002. I was in 2nd grade and 7 years old when the Houston Texans joined the NFL, and it happened to be the time in my life when I began understanding American football as a game and really developing an interest in the sport. No matter what, the Texans will always be my number one American football team as I can say I actually followed the team from day one.
Side note: The Rockets are my other all time favorite team and favorite basketball team. While I have followed the Texans since I could understand the game of football, I followed the Rockets before I even understand what was going on on the court. What I did understand was it brought my family together every time there was a Rockets game on TV, as I would rock my Hakeem Olajuwon jersey as a toddler.
