After a 2005-2006 season in which the Houston Rockets went 15-26 at home, then-Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy held auditions for what he would deem the most rabid Rockets fans, and would literally give them their own section in Toyota Center. Thus the Red Rowdies were born, and the next season the Rockets went 28-13 at home. Since then the tryouts have continued each season, only they've grown much crazier and much bigger. The Red Rowdies' section — upper part of Section 114, located behind the basket at the Rockets' end of the court — has multiplied in size and volume, and today they're considered one of the greatest groups of fans in team sports. Being a Red Rowdy doesn't come without a major commitment level, as each individual is required to attend just about every Rockets home game, or else Rowdy privileges (i.e., free season tickets) are lost. With championship dreams this upcoming season, those privileges have never been more valuable or the Red Rowdy experience more fun.
