    Had to vote location, but I will agree, the helmets are still the best looking in the business. IMHO. Nothing quite like a line of Ram horns when they take their position on the line. :r

    ...and unlike the Steelers, they actually have the logo on BOTH sides of the helmet.
    Faithful Rams fan since 1968

    I hit other, didn't have a spot for players. I fell in love with the Rams @ young age. When most kids were drawn to the Bart Starrs & Johnny Unitas I was drawn to the fabulous Fearsomr Foursome. I just loved the way they would terrioize the backfields of opposing teams & throw in Deacon's head slap what more could a kid ask for.

    When the Rams moved in to my house, I held the door open for them.

    Re: What was the biggest factor in your becoming a Rams fan?

    The RAMS were the only game in town when I attended my first game back in 74'..
    When they moved to Anaheim I was so ecstatic that they were only 15 min. away; I saved most of my money to attend as many games as possible.

    Now I go to two games a year.
    JUST WIN ONE FOR THE FANS

    Same here: the Fab Four. But also, I was attracted to that great looking Rams uniform that caught my impressionable teenager's eyes of 1965. And you know? That uni still does catch my eye whenever I see it -- print, TV or Web!

    The first YMCA football team I ever played for at 8 years old was the Rams. I knew very little about football, so I figured I'd learn more about my teams namesake in the NFL. I began following them in 1974, and been hooked onthe horns ever since!:l
