    Ha. I run smack at those Gamecock fans all the time down there.
    My main office is situated right in the middle of Columbia.

    Yeah. I spend a lot of time there with work too. Just wrapped up work on the new dorms at Core.
    I live up in Arden (just south of Asheville), but I work all over the Upstate.

    Ram fans!
    Here's my story man talk about toying with a boy's emotions - my rookie season as a fan is like I skipped alcohol and started with crack! It was like being obsessed with that first girlfriend you're convinced you'll marry and live happily ever after...

    After losing interest in the NFL around age 9 I was kind of annoyed by NFL/ My mom was psychotic about the Steelers in the 90s and their losses were felt around the house...plus I half ass rooted for the Eagles as a child, but it was just a brain wash stunt by my Aunt...but who's kidding who if Ray Rhodes took Eagles to a Superbowl I would probably still be a fan.

    On a whim I decided Rams were my team. Earlier that week I became fascinated using the team in Madden. When I told my father I was now a Ram's fan he teased, why because They're 4-0...I had no idea about anything outside of the video characters on my TV with the names of "Lyle, Lyght, Farr, Wistrom, Bruce, Holt, Hakim, Agnew, McCleon, etc) drew me in. For some reason I was convinced they were the coolest dudes in the NFL.

    At age 12 my first memory as a Ram's fan was watching highlights of Bruce's 4 TD game vs SF that season. To this day he's my all time favorite athlete - can't even name a close 2nd or explain why. I only got to watch prime time games living outside Scranton, PA. I didn't really get to appreciate Bruce like I should have. Watching highlights now...man the guy wasn't the biggest, fastest, strongest, best hands...but clearly he had work ethic, was smart and waited until after his career to marry(can't confirm if he really self imposed a rule haha) , and man, his body just kind of had a 'twist' when he ran routes. His gait was more unique than a voice!


    I've been a die hard from '99-'05...would sit in front of PC and refresh every 30 seconds on Sundays The 4 years I was in college I sort of went AWOL, the Ram's were literally the worst team in sports ('06-'09), my memory is fuzzy in general. was too busy doing college kid things, and I didn't have anywhere to watch the games/went to school in Steeler Country(gross). I've pretty much watched every game since Spags first year(That time expiring loss at Tampa that year still hurts as much as Sea week 17) and don't plan on stopping.

    I'm a very optimistic fan(it's why I enjoy this forum, i'm not alone) that's convinced every Sunday the Rams will win. I wish I didn't let losses effect my week...Grow up...haha . Every year the Gophers are going to make the Rose bowl/Final 4 and every season the Pirates are looking good at that Pennant run! All my teams have pretty much been below mediocre since i've been an adult and can't wait to see which team makes national headlines first. Rooting for underdogs is emotionally healthy and will eventually pay off...right?

    I'll see if I get the urge to join in on the Bob n Weaving with you guys. I've lurked going back to realramsfans. I don't know any Rams fans in my area and I think people get annoyed when I force Ram's talk on them...all anyone cares about is fantasy...it's frustrating, I play every year and all but just cause it's an excuse to stay connected with old friends...Ram's are the only game I care about on Sunday. Watching non-Rams games are kind of boring.

    I want to end with saying I pretty much support Fisher/Snead 100%. No regrets with Goff despite not being impressed. I believe the players should be held accountable for their poor performance. I don't want to risk bringing in a new HC every 2.5 seasons and be another Miami, Tampa, Cleveland, Buffalo, Detriot, etc. Obviously we have the talent. I'm patient and hope for luck!

    Welcome. That's a long time to lurk... you got some catching up to do.

    Yeah... that last minute loss in Tampon still pains me too. At least you weren't sitting there in Raymond James watching those final seconds like I did. That was the longest and worst walk to the car after a game that I've ever had. The pain is real. LOL

    So like I said... you got some serious catching up to do.

    Hello fam. I've been a L.A./Anaheim/St. Louis/L.A. Rams fan since birth, basically. Grew up going to games at the Coliseum and then in Anaheim. Stayed true to my team when they left for St. Louis. Took a ton of flack leading up to the Championship run. Gave it back to the haters during the 1999-2000 season of magic. Went back to suffering and...
    You guys know the story. At any rate, it is nice to be here among fellow like-minded fans and I look forward to what's to come in the next few years while our new stadium is built. I'm not in Los Angeles anymore as most of my family has migrated away. I now live in Southern Utah and enjoy Sunday Ticket. My last game attended was at the Arizona stadium where my father and I flew from Glendale, CA to the local airport, rented a car and went to the game representing the colors. The wonderful fans pelted us with peanuts and occasional beer spills from above and our team got waxed that day. Was a lousy flight home but I'd do it again and again and again. In fact that's what we as Rams fans do. We keep coming back for more. Thanks for having me.

    Chris

    p.s. If only Cromwell had hung on to that easy pick...!

    Good evening, or afternoon.

    Quick little introducing on my part. I'm originally from Arizona, born into a family raised in the LA area who followed the team when they left to St. Louis. I've grown up a rams fan, and will bleed blue and gold until the day I die. I'm an infantryman in the army, stationed in Fort Campbell but currently deployed to Africa. Last game I attended was in 2014 in Arizona, of course we got are asses kicked. I absolutely despise the Seahawks, and when I say despise I would pull the cable on their life support to charge my phone. Trumaine Johnson has been my favorite player on the team for a while now, seeing him injured really rubs me the wrong way. I look forward to getting used to the site more and hopefully talking to some of you ram fanatics.

    Welcome friend...I am not normally part of the welcoming committee (they normally keep me hidden in the closet when meeting new folks:sneak:) . I also drink the tears of Hawk fans, and enjoy every Aaron Donald sack on RW that I can see....

    Wait. You're a Clemson fan? I'm shocked. I didn't think Clemson fans knew how to use computers, much less the internet. I don't think we can be friends anymore. ;)

    Hi guys......My name is John Wakefield & my golf buds call me Wakie. I am "87" young & have been a Ram fan "A total real Ram fan" since they moved from Cleveland To L.A. in late 40's. Saw their first game in the Coliseum.I now live in Las Vegas since 1990. I was born in L.A. & moved to Long Beach, Ca. when I was 11. Graduated high school & went on to Cal Poly from there. Played football in high school but nothing after that. It has been so long ago that I really have no idea how I decided to fall for the RAMS but, I did. And as you might know, I fell hard. Really hard. I have been reading "ON DEMAND" for a long time & always will. Even after being from L.A. & a season ticket holder starting in 1955 (tickets were $3.90 per game, I still hated the forced move to L.A. I could go on & on as I am a long winded old fart but, I won't. I will say that I am more of a reader then a poster. Last thing I will say. Fisher MUST go. Thanks for listening.
