How did you become a fan?

This is something I've always been curious about.  With the exception of the Texans are the newest team in their area, so how did you become a fan of the Titans?  Were you a Houston Oilers fan who followed the team from Houston?  Or did you pick up the team once they moved to Tennessee?  My story is after the jump.   

I've been a fan since they were in Houston.  I was only 8 years old when they moved to Tennessee.  A lot of Oliers fans were hurt by the move and hate the team now but my dad and I weren't one of them.  I'm not sure why but my theory is that we didn't live in Houston at the time so it didn't hurt us as much as people who lived in Houston.  When then Texans came around we tried sort of a dual-fanship.  I had my David Carr jersey and we were excited for the team but within a few games we realized that the Texans weren't our team.  Jeff Fisher was our coach.  Steve McNair was our QB.  The Texans could've won the Super Bowl and they wouldn't have been our team. We had too much history with the Oilers/Titans.  Cheering for the Texans just didn't feel right.   We loved the team we already had.

So what's your story?  If you came with the Oilers why did you stay with the team?  Did you consider rooting for the Texans?  Did you consider selling your soul to the devil and rooting for the Cowboys?   If you weren't a fan of the Oilers before they moved how did you become a fan?  Were you a fan of a different team before the Oilers moved to Tennessee?  Were the Titans the first team you even backed?  I'm very interested in all of your answers.
