My Ram Story.. 

Post#1 » by LLcoleJ » Mon Apr 2, 2007 3:40 am

I grew up a diehard LA Ram fan. I loved them more than any team and in any sport. ( even the Lakers)

I was always suspect of georgia frontaire's role in the org. and when the she moved the team to St Louis.. it was the final straw.

" the "Death" of her husbad.....writing the Kids out of the front office and taking a bunch of money to go to St. Louis..... I Was threw.

Of course after years of suffering and then the disown.... they go onto win the suberbowl.

Well i am a football fan with no home. I like the Raiders and the Chargers... ( yes I know 2 mortal enemies) <- that is how the move effected me.

My friends and family still follow the Rams... I just cant.... I just cant.

Ohhhh come on.... Once you are a Ram fan, you are a Ram fan for life. Hell, when we were the worst team in the league, a laughing stock, I stuck by them. But then, they win the superbowl and everyone loved them.

Ram fans always stick together... through Tony Banks, and through Lawrence Phillips... stick together.

I am the opposite of a bandwagoner. I jumped off the team when they started to win. :lol:

I was a Ram for Halloween every other year as a kid ( when I was not a laker)

Jack Youngblood was my favorite as a kid..

I've been a Rams fan my entire life. My family had season seats from their days in the coliseum until the last game against the Redskins. I was 15 and I was there. It broke my heart. I still have memories of going to the games with my grandfather.

And without a doubt the most surreal moment of my life as a fan came in the 1999 season. I was watching a game at a bar, yelling my heart out in total disbelief, and a stranger from across the room called me a "Bandwagoner".

It was incredible. I never ever believed someone could say that to me as a Rams fan.

Sounds familiar..

I went to some games when I was around 12 -14 at the candlestick.. and people would through beer on me. Yell... lambs... and I would sit there proud with my Rams Jacket on.
My dad took me to NY you see a playoffs game against the Giants in the snow..

The Rams were laughing stock of the NFL and I couldnt be prouder being a fan..

I was pretty upset also when they left us for St. Louis, I got over it. I tried the whole Charger thing since they are from So Cal, but it didnt feel right. A few weeks and I forgave them. I have been married to the Rams since 1986 and that was our only spat. :love: This is my love story, errrrr Rams story.
