    Cool My 1999

    When better than the bye week to finally take some pictures of my favorite memorabilia...

    In 1999, I was starting my freshman year in high school. Lived out in the country of Nebraska with no cable TV, so I rarely came across any Rams news. Looked up stats in the paper the day after following live scores on TV, with scarce highlights.

    I started clipping any newspaper articles that mentioned the Rams. Made a bit of money detasseling corn over the summer and ordered Rams Update, a full-color newspaper that arrived once a week. It really made my week, and it turns out I picked a good time to do it.

    Here are my two albums of 1999, which (you could say...) was a pretty good season.

    Thanks for posting these albums dude. That was a lot of fun reliving the season looking over these articles. I used to keep a similar Rams scrapbook myself for a couple of years during the late 70's (including the season when the Rams played the Steelers for the championship) that included weekly articles from our local paper for each game and handwritten stats for offense and defense that I updated myself each week after the games.

    Unfortunately I no longer have them. Not sure what happened, but I think they were accidentally thrown away by someone when I was at college. Wish I still had them, they held some great memories.

    That is awesome! 1979 was my freshman year and we also went to the SB that year. But I was a clueless freshman and did no have your insight to do that.

    To echo everyone else, great memories and thanks for sharing. Part of one article showed the league before the current realignment, that was interesting too.

    Go Rams!
