    Thankfully I was too young, I was 6 or 7 when the Titans arrived and I think I became a fan of the NFL around 9 or 10 years old.

    I was born and raised in Clarksville Tennessee, but my parents were from Leavenworth Kansas. So I grew up watching the Chiefs. Once the Oilers came to TN, I ditched the Chiefs immediately.

    Clarksvillian here too. Not born and raised, but Clarksville has been my home now for 16 years. Grew up in Maine (never liked the Pats) and Minnesota (Vikings were ok). After leaving the Army (Ft. Campbell) stayed in Clarksville...soon after found out that Tenn had an NFL team. I started watching a guy named Eddie George light the field up and was hooked from that day on.

    I spent some summers in Dallas in my early days so saw the Cowboys play the Steelers in an exhibition game in 1977 and was hooked. I was a fan if Bob Lilly, Roger The Dodger and the Boys up until they fired Landry (who needed to go but should have been moved to the front office, IMO).

    I was a man without a team for a few years until the Oilers came to Tennessee though it wasn't very intense when they played in Memphis and Vandy. The first preseason game against the Falcons in '99 took it up a big notch and, as that season continued, took it to its current levels.

    I was pretty young when I moved to Nashville right about the same time the Oilers moved to Tennessee. Like 11... So I hadn't really been a fan of any team up until that point.

    I did attend many Jaguar games before then though and had some swag but only because my grandmother lived in Jax and had season tickets.

    I was at that AFC championship game in my Jevon Kearse jersey, memories...

    Wholly cow! That must have been a once in a lifetime experience. How'd it feel to see all the Jags fan cry? Considering how the game began they thought they had it in the bag....penalties penalties.

    My guess is probably about the same as every time we see them cry, which is awesome!
