1993 Houston Wildcard Comeback- Where were you guys

Recommended Posts

One of the best attended as well. Last I heard there were at least 225k fans there and not one left before the comeback started.🤣

 

I was 16, working my shift at McDonald's. Listened on the radio and when,my shift was over the comeback started. Instead of going home sat in the break room and listened.

Watched it at home and had to keep turning the TV back on as my older brother had had ENOUGH! 😃

1 of at least 400,000 that day.

Nah it wasn’t even sold out.  At the time capacity was 80,250 but there was only like 75,000 people there.

In the stands.  I've told this story many times but we were at the top of the stadium and watched folks leaving, then coming back.  Probably the greatest sporting event I've ever attended for lots of reasons.

At the game. At half time I put my head down, then looked up at my brother and said "this could be our finest hour"...I was only half kidding.

Upper Deck on the Away Side.  Me and a family member sat up top, the others were sitting in the scoreboard away corner side.

 

first to admit I wanted to bail at half time.  But was told very firmly that the folks didn’t pay money and wait in line during the week for me to bail at halftime.

Sitting in section c3 w dad and brother.  Ticket stubs are framed w a copy of the front page of the buffalo news signed by Reich and Christie thanking my dad for attending.  It’s a cool thing.  Probably the only one still up in my parents’ house.

At A LaQuinta Inn in Las Vegas. Family had just moved out there and we were waiting on the house.

 

My Dad rarely says much of value, but he predicted the Bills would come back because Bill Cowher was on at halftime talking about the upcoming match-up with the Oilers.

 

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Uncle's house in Alden.  He had one of those big old satellites that got the game.

Cary NC watching at home.  At halftime I was so disgusted I stopped watching the game (something I never do) and took a long bike ride to try to burn off some of my frustration.  Got back in the 4th Q - will ever forget the look on my wife's face when I walked through the door - knew right away something very strange was going on.

26 years and have still never heard anyone admit they left the game early.

 

I'll admit leaving the TV after the pick 6....went upstairs to pack my bag to go to my girlfriend's house with no intention of watching any more.  My Dad yelled upstairs after the Beebe TD so I came back down and obviously watched the rest!

Watching it at home on a crappy channel on TV.  Everyone in the house shut it off at halftime.  I had to pick up my future wife at work in the 4th quarter and listened to the final moments on the radio.  Luckily for me, I recorded the game on my VCR and rewatched it when I got home.  I will never forget that game / day.

Watching the game in Owego, NY. Watched from beginning to end. I only started to get excited when they closed the gap to 11.

I was at the game, My family had seasons tickets then. The only downside was I was in the restroom when the final touchdown was scored so I missed it. For what it is worth it sounded like a jet engine in the concourse so I knew something great happened

I was living in NC at the time. I went to the gym to work out all my frustrations toward the end of the first half (thinking the game was all but over) - and . As I was walking out of the gym to head back home, there was a TV on and and the scoreboard was flashing "DEFENSE" and they were showing fans standing on their feet screaming - and then they showed the score and it was 38-31. Sat down and watched the rest of it right there.

On the couch, next to Pops, 1000 miles away. That was THE game that made me a true blue diehard Bill's fan.
