    I was just getting into football when the Oilers left town but my limited memory of the Bum Phillip's Luv Ya Blue days won't be forgotten. And ***** Bud Adams.

    I don't think he'll ever answer who he's rooting for. He never answers whether he roots for Nederland or Port Neches-Groves (big rivals, and he coached both). But I'm sure he's rooting for Houston and Nederland.

    Sure would be nice to win a championship while he's still alive. I'd love to see him up there with our team as we're awarded the trophy.

    Indeed... the man has a great sausage... :eek: too bad is not as good as Earl Campbell's.

    ;)
    Does he have ANYTHING to do with the Texans? :eek: I don't know why he would be "up there with our team"... he's just a fan. Has he been named honorary anything?

    GAry Kubiak was ball-boy for the Oilers under Bum Philips and he's great friends with Bum.

    But mostly it's because Bum is a hero to the city of Houston and a football icon to this city.

    Excuse Swoly, this was way before his time. I'm sure he was somewhere along the border selling chiclets.
