    What made you a Rams fan?

    A change of pace general off season type topic for a boring Tuesday morning. I want to hear some of your stories that made you a fan of the best franchise in the NFL!

    For me I was a St. Louis native when the Rams were still in LA. I ended up moving mere days before the Rams officially moved to St. Louis. Since I moved to a non-nfl market (Redskins don't count) city, I adopted the Rams regardless to complete the trio of St. Louis professional sports teams.

    Let's see what ya'll got!

    Decon Jones' appearance on the Brady Bunch when I was a kid and the fact they were my home town's only team at the time.

    Loved the Rams' uniforms, and as a kid growing up in Florida I also loved Jack Youngblood.

    Re: What made you a Rams fan?

    I started liking the Rams in 1979. I was 11 and the Rams were super bowl bound. First team I ever got to see on TV (my mother hated football). Then, when my sister started dating boys that liked football, I started watching them in the afternoons after family dinner. I fell in love with the colors yellow and blue. I liked the players hard nosed tough and gritty style Wendell Tyler, Jack-Jim Youngblood and Nolan Cromwell. Also at that time a popular movie "Heaven can wait" was on The Movie Channel like everyday and I liked it better than the Chicago Bears "Brian's Song" or the Pittsburg Stealers movie (don't remember the name). We drafted a running back by the name of Eric Dickerson and I could not get enough of his style. So I was hooked and stayed a fan ever since.

    Re: What made you a Rams fan?

    Oddly enough it was actually Madden........way back in the beginning of Madden, I used to use the Rams strictly due to liking their jerseys (I was about 5 so give me a break) As time grew I began to ask my dad about the Rams and learn about them. I began to research them at the library etc. until old enough to use the internet. Then it just grew more and more. It is a weird beginning, but I just never liked the dolphins who I grew up with.

    Re: What made you a Rams fan?

    While I watched whatever game was on as a young kid, I kind of lost interest in the sport while in middle and early high school. The Greatest Show and the Kurt Warner story looped me back in and made me a Rams fan.

    Re: What made you a Rams fan?

    Like Stone Cold my first introduction to the Rams and even the NFL as a whole came through madden. As im not from the usa i never grew up watching or playing american 'football' and it was only by chance that i was flicking through the channels late one night and found a live game on uk channel 4. Although i didnt understand what was happening i found myself compelled to keep watching it, so the next day i went down and purchased a copy of madden, the one right after the Rams superbowl win so you can guess who was on the cover... safe to say i went with the guy on the cover (Faulk) and my love for the Rams has grown ever since.

    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one on here who became a Rams fan through Madden. I was into Madden before I was into watching football. Madden 2003 with Marshall on the cover was my first owned football game. I loved playing with the Rams and they got me into watching football. It's been love ever since.

    Re: What made you a Rams fan?

    My grandpa (who lived in Fallbrook, CA and was a Chargers fan) took me to my first Rams game when I was 5 yrs old at home against the Giants. I just remember being awestruck by the atmosphere and the Rams won the game. I was forever a Rams fan from then on even though I lived in Arizona. By the time we got a home team in 1988 it was far too late as I was locked into the horns!!
