    I grew up in Houston and was an Oilers fan. I moved to Indiana and I stuck by my team when they moved too.

    I moved to Nashville in 1998 the same year the Titans started playing in Nashville. I grew up rooting for the Falcons just b/c of proximity(grew up in Decatur, AL.) and to some extent the Steelers. As someone else said it was easy b/c I love smash mouth football.

    I have always been a big fan of Mullets so when Jeff Fisher showed up in Nashville I felt it was the natural thing to do.

    Grew up a Lions fan and somehow didn't kill myself.

    Titans came to town and my family got PSLs/season tickets for the first few years... naturally with the team being good, I converted pretty quick- having an NFL team in my backyard back when football was a lot harder to follow/watch then it is now.

    It is pretty random. Lots of people back home were Vikings fans because they were the closest team to where I lived. Now I suppose that would be Seattle. I'd love to have a local NFL team to cheer for, but I like living in Canada lol.

    Grew up in Memphis. Mostly a vols fan, just watched nfl casually.

    When they announced the Oilers were moving here via Memphis, I made a point to watch their last game in Houston, to see what we were getting. Truthfully was kind of underwhelmed.

    The late 90's early 00's run hooked me. The music city miracle was one of the highlights of my sports life, along with the '98 vols. I didn't realize how spoiled I was at the time. Lol

    This has to be one of the most retarded posts I've ever seen. Even coming from you that means a lot.

    Only been to Canada once (Vancouver). I still like to throw jabs at Canadians because it's fun (I mean ham is not bacon), but I was completely thrown off by how beautiful Vancouver was. Victoria Island was awesome as well. Best BBQ I've ever had was in Vancouver at this place called Peckinpah in Gastown. Pulled pork Mac n cheese was amazing.
