  • Horns and Pinstripes, what about you?

    First off, Let me say that i'm happy to be here. It's great to know most of us like the Rams enough to join this forum. Secondly, I especially wish those Rams fans who came from the L.A. years, ALL THE BEST. I was with ya'll as a little boy in the Coliseum for a couple year, and then for about 10 in the Mighty Big A, and those were some of my best times cheering for the Horned Blue and Yellow.
    Now i'm gonna lay you out. THE NY YANKEES are my second ?favorite team :cool: I was about 6 years old and Bucky Dent hit the homer vs the BoSux and my dad bought me a Yankee cap and i never took it off, it was one of the only things he ever bought me, besides my construction boots (actually i stole those from him):evil: Anyways to make a long story short, the Rams and Yanks are my favorite pastimes, and I'm wondering what all ya'lls favorite other teams are. Feel free to crucify me about the Yankees, cause i've heard em' all before. RAMS AND YANKEES, HORNS AND PINSTRIPES, TILL I'M DEAD BABY

    I'm a big Arsenal fan, perenial runners up in the English Premiership.
    Best moment - watching Michael Thomas score the last minute goal to win the League in 1989.
    Worst moment - flyiny to Copenhagen and watching from the stands as we lost on penalties to Galatasary. Then being spat at and sworn at by Turkish fans after the game.

      So I take it you won't be going up to Anfield to watch the game next Wednesday. i had a chance of a ticket but the old " pressure of work" meant I had to turn it down.

      Which side was I going to support? not sure I was going with a Turkish mate but my wife is a scouser and i won't want to upset her would I?

        My Brother`s just back from Canada, could see the smirk in his face when he asked me what happened in the Superbowl, Anyway he`s brought me back a Canadian Olympic Ice Hockey Jersey so looks like I`ll be supporting Canada during the Olympics.

        GO CANUCKS!

          OK Mr. Blonde you got it half right, i'll give you the horns, BUT....

          pinstripes? the yankees? :eek: YYYUUUCCKKK i hate the yankees there's no way a team should be able to throw around that much money and win that much, it's bad sportsmanship. MLB sucks right now and will suck for a long time as long as Selig runs the league. You're definitely allowed to like a them though, there is plenty of history and tradition.

          I have no favorites in MLB - except that i hate the yankees and braves. I'm more into minor league and college baseball where guys actually play for the love of the game and not the paychecks. Yeah some of them have dreams of playing in the show, but i'm sure most of them are just happy to be playing ball. :p

            My favorite baseball teams are the Angels and the Padres.Talk about longsuffering!!!!I should be a Dodgers fan,but I started rooting against the Dodgers to bug my Dad when I was little.I've never been able to like them since.I also follow the Lakers and the Kings.(I was born in L.A.)The only team that I am obsessed with is the Rams.Football and the Horns are my greatest passion.

              I'm staying well away from all games involving any English side against any Turkish side.
              A knife in the back is to high a price to pay for watching a football match.
              I just dread to think what will happen when England travel to Istanbul for the Euro 2004 qualifiers.

                :nerd: Football is about it for me...with the exception of any sport my kids are in. They like basketball and my son does all sports.

                  St Louis Rams and NY Yankees a good combination

                  Hey Mr.Blond, I agree with you. Horns and Pinstripes 'till we're dead.

                  The combination sounds good and sounds greater when you add Chivas de Guadalajara and the New Jersey Devils!!!

                        Hey guys!

                        It's been awhile since I've been on the forum. I think the last time was right before the Super Bowl. But, I wanted to add my teams in this.

                        The only other one that matters for me besides the Rams, are the Angels. So until the Rams won the Super Bowl I knew nothing but suffering. What makes it worse; is that I live in the bay area. So I put up with a lot of crap. But I do like the Lakers. But then again; basketball is a hobby not a sport.

                                Someone please find the article by Sam Shields today in The Players Tribune online and post it to this site. It is one of the most inspirational, emotional and moving articles i have ever read. Shields describes his battles with concussions and his road back to the NFL in a way that is extremely moving and real. I am now a GINORMOUS Sam Shields fan.

                                Favorite Rams collectible/souvenir and why?
                                by Vinnie25
                                I was looking at some old Rams stuff on eBay and a sense of nostalgia just swept over me; so much history and good memories flooded back to me that I honestly almost pulled a Dick Vermeil and began to tear up. It made me think, what Rams (either L.A. or St. Louis) souvenir means the most to you guys and why? I have two; the first was back in the late 80's when my dad took me to the player's tunnel after a Rams game and I met wide receiver Flipper Anderson, where he gave me his receiving gloves and game worn jersey. As an 8-9 year old that was the coolest thing in the world, and I remember wearing those things for 2 weeks straight after lol. The second souvenir was from the 2010 Rams-Seahawks game in Seattle, the last game of the year that decided the NFC West division title. Unfortunately the Rams fell short that game, but I remember leaning over the rails congratulating each player on an awesome season as they dejectedly headed through the tunnel. The majority of them quickly walked through, ignoring the boos and jeers from the Seahawk faithful, but a couple of them (including Sam Bradford and Josh Brown) stopped and shook me and my families hand. The highlight of my night was when Steven Jackson gave me and my son a fist pump and then handed us his game worn gloves. You could tell that he was so heartbroken and disappointed at losing that game, yet he still had the class to stop and mingle with me and my family (all while being screamed insults by drunk Seahawk fans nonetheless); an amazing gesture by an amazing person. Definitely one of the greatest sports moments of my life.

                                Every off-season (except lest season) I ask all the members to write a little blurb about themselves so we can all learn a little more about the people behind the posts.

                                So, this season is no different. Please take a few moments and introduce yourselves. Tell us all a little about you as a person. You may want to include age, occupation(s), sex, family, a funny story, location, how you found us, why you are a Rams fan, interests besides the Rams or just a plain ol' "hi" nice to meet you.

                                This thread should help all you lurkers out there to become part of the group. This is a nice way to break into the group in a very relaxed thread. DON'T BE SHY, we wont bite (well maybe Sam).

                                PLEASE EVERYONE, tell us about YOU!!

                                What is your most cherished Ram memory.
                                by bloodnhall
                                Isn't it great that when you haven't thought of something you cherish in awhile and something is said that like a time warp, takes you to your moment. Here's mine,I was back to the New Years eve 1979 to 1980 day when the Rams played the Cowboys in the playoffs. My Father, my stepmom, my brother and his wife, my best friend and his wife, and my wife (then girl friend) were at my condo watching the game.
                                CBS wanted a Dallas-Steeler rematch, the experts gave us no chance. Dallas beat us in a regular season game 30-6. And for the first time we were a nine point underdog (largest ever). But our Rams had a 14-5 halftime lead, we were going nuts. Then late in the fourth quarter dallas tooka 19-14 lead and it looked like another snakebitten playoff loss by our Rams. Then when Vinnie hit Waddy for that 50 yard TD, this is exactly what happened in my living room.
                                I slide on my knees like I am on ice to one inch from the TV screen my ears and eyes are focused on one thing A FLAG. I see none our Ram players dont act like their is one and they say their isn't one.
                                I turn around and this is what I see. The 7 of hem our hugging each other and our jumping up and down like it is one person with 14 legs. I run to join them, but my momentum as I hug knocks us off balance and all 8 of us hugging as one crash into my coffee table breaking it in pieces with crap going everywhere, but, we don't even give it a thought. ALL 8 keep hugging each other and screaming with joy. What is etched forever in my mind is the faces of my Father and Brother virtually and inch from my face with yelling and smiling. Since they are no longer with us, that moment is my moment. And I need it. what's yours?

                                I think for those of us who post on this board (I myself post irregularly butread frequently), this is a pretty amazing time for us. I don't put the Rams up on a podium above my personal life and I don't spend hours a week reading about the Rams, but I do watch the games, I do pay attention, and I can name every player, starters and reserves. ;-

                                I love the Rams. I'm 26, I grew up in LA, and my dad had a serious anger problem. Every time the Rams lost he would punch a hole through the wall or kick a cupboard door. The worst of it all was when the ***** came to town - I knew as a little kid that the ***** meant a grumpy dad later in the day. I didn't know Joe Montana or Jerry Rice as a 5 year old, but I grew up to know them well. As my dad's football expertise and attention level faded, my attention level rose to incredible heights. As an 8 year old I would get the team address from Beckett Magazine and would mail playing cards in for autographs. Jim Everett wrote me back and signed. Bettis, Bruce, Flipper Anderson, Kevin Greene. I have many other teams, but those Rams were important to me.

                                The point of this note is that the past 7 or 8 years have sucked. My best friend is a Seahawks fan, and I live in Dallas, Texas.

                                But something has changed. My girlfriend got back in town last night and smiled and said "The Rams won!". My neighbor stopped me to yell "YOUR TEAM WON DUDE!". My dad called to talk about how we beat the Seahawks - and that is important to me.

                                People know I'm a Rams fun. They didn't typically rub it in my face when we won 1 or 2 games a year but they share my pleasure and satisfaction that my team is (so far) competetive. That is what sports is about - that is what being a Rams fan means to me.
