    Mike Jones tackled Kevin Dyson and Vermeil said, "That's it."

    And, if you can remember, what were your exact words when you realized we won?

    - Living in Park City, Utah, watching the game at my house with 3 guys who couldn't care less about the outcome. I was suffering from major anxiety during the last drive! I was standing in front of the TV, hands on head, while my unconcerned friends fininshed off my beer. When Jones made "The Tackle", I screamed, "No flags? No flags! ... YES!!!" My greatest fan moment ever! Having some Ram Buds present would have made it better, but I ain't complaining.

    At a big party. There was one guy there that was a USC, Jeff Fisher fan. Me being a UCLA, Dick Vermeil guy, we weren't getting along too well. Last time I will ever watch my Rams in the SB with mixed company. Let out a primal scream and nearly came to blows shortly thereafter....

    Great party and great day.
    I couldn't believe we were in the Superbowl, then to win it was incredible.

    I was in my living room watching it on my Mitsubishi 65" rear projection TV, and I don't think I said a word....then I screamed, "That's it, it's over". I didn't think for one minute that the ball crossed the plane. I was confident, the game was done, but I don't think that I breathed for the last 4 minutes of that game. I screamed, and cursed a lot at Kevin Carter during the last drive though. After it was all over officially, it was freak yeah, Rams are Superbowl champs, can you effin believe it??? Jumping up and down, and crap.

    I was going through a divorce at the time and was at my sister's house watching the game. She's always been my best friend, despite being a 49ers fan. I remember being kinda drunk and slightly depressed, but that certainly lifted my spirits a bit. I remember saying, "Son of a bitch. They did it."

    I was at a friend's house watching the game with four other Ram fans as we've been doing for 7 years and my exact words after "The Tackle" were.... "I can now die in peace."

    Playing pool downstairs at the Super Bowl party at my dads house. I can't remember my exact words but I'm sure it began with a curse word. Don't worry about my soul though because the curse word itself was probably sanctified first with the word "holy".

    D@mn, I need some new memories, Jeff Fisher

    We were at a friend's house who was the only other RAMS fan in town. We were screaming like crazy, but I remember saying: "Watch, they will review it and give those bastards the touchdown," because I said they missed the play were Eddie George's knee hit the ground on a Titans "TD," earlier in the game, so I thought they would miss Dyson's being down too. I know my head almost exploded and my kids thought I was insane. When I go home, I bought about $500 worth of RAMS stuff on the internet!

    I was pretty liquored up by the 4th qtr, at a friends trailer home with a few close friends.
    I was on my knees the entire 4th qtr willing the Gods of all that is good.
    I suffered happily from chowder pants when Bruce scored....then when Jones saved the TD...i went into this move, gyrating drunkenly[​IMG] I said the same thing Vermeil did. "Thats it! Its over! Its over muthafuckas!"

    Watching at home with my Dad. He is the one that introduced me to the team (and sports in general) He was confident they would get the stop, but I was a nervous wreck. Once the pass was made I think I let out a scream.... realizing he was well short, I leaped up and high fived my Dad. Watching the replay , the play was A LOT closer to a TD then I initially believed. WOOOO!!!!!!!!

    I was in my then house in Ohio watching on one of those huge (like 10 ft diameter) satellite dishes. We called it the Ohio state flower. My second year of having the NFL Package (only $134.00 back then!). In 1998, we were 4-12 but we lost some close games we should have won and our defense showed signs of promise so I was optimistic in 1999. I've got every game that year on VHS :rolleyes:. If it wasn't for the NFL Package, I wouldn't have seen the Rams on TV until they played the Vikings in the playoffs. They weren't on TV that year. I don't know which was more unnerving, the NFC Championship game or the Superbowl. They were both nail biters. It ain't easy being a Rams fan. That's probably why we all understand. GO RAMS!!!!

    I was at home with my wife. Didn't go to a party, because I wanted to focus on the game. When Bruce scored the go-ahead TD, we grabbed each other and screamed "Touchdown, yeah!!!!" When Dyson's outstretched arm came up short, I yelled, "He didn't make it! No flags, no time on the clock! THE RAMS WIN! THE RAMS WIN!!"

    Then we went downtown and partied in the streets until the wee hours. Went to work the next day on ZERO sleep.

    So you were probably sleeping tight and not letting the bed bugs bite.
