Introduce yourself here


This little corner of the internet has attracted quite a few new names lately.  With the season about to start up, I thought it might be a good idea for us to introduce ourselves to one another.  I've seen other sites on SB Nation do this and it seems to bring out a lot of people.  Perhaps we can even convince a few lurkers to register and contribute.  Just share as much information as you feel comfortable sharing.

I'll go first.  I was born and raised in Houston but I live far away in a hot, dusty place now.  I've been a fan of Houston sports since as long as I can remember.  I went to my first Astros game with my dad back in something like 81 or 82 when I was 8/9 years old.  I've supported the Houston teams, with the Astros and Oilers being my favorites, ever since then.  I kind of gave up on pro football when the Oilers left town but I immediately became a Texans fan when it was announced that the NFL would return to Houston.  I watched the first game agains the Cowboys and have since watched every game I can, which was unfortunately not that much once I moved overseas.  However, the innernets have been a blessing and last season I was able to catch every single game on my trusty laptop.

Outside of following sports I like to play sports and really like action-type sports.  I used to be a backpacking/climbing guide and climbing, along with surfing and skiing, are my greatest passions in life (outside of my wife and two sons).  I also like playing guitar, cycling and poker and I'm a wannabe barbecuer.  I'm kind of a dilettante, I suppose. 

Besides the Houston sports teams, I also follow Ajax Amsterdam, the greatest soccer team in the history of the galaxy.

Hope to hear from everyone else out here, including perhaps a few lurkers.

Go Texans!
