    Doubly so considering you'd think a cheapo would care about saving gas.

    Maybe Tillman didn’t want to pay for a larger parking spots at various FBOs nation wide so he elected to not get winglets.

    I’ll admit winglets make the 767 look from blah to badass even though they only provide true savings on longer flights…

    The most gas savings comes from missing the playoffs

    The Stros don't have their own jet, cheap Crane j/k. I remember there was a time where we would track the location of the Rockets plane in the air, or the route they planned. I don't think it is accurate anymore.

    The only time we'd track it was when we were trying to see which free agent we were chasing with an iPad. Nowadays we track his yacht in the Bahamas during the summer. :D

    I remember ET, The Fresh Prince, Amigo, Junkyard Dog, Mad Max, Chili Pete, but I don't ever remember a Rockets player being called the Jet back in the day.

    Yes, a true Rocket fan.

    He was not my favorite player but he helped get us past Orlando in game one,
    I believe, in Orlando. From there, the team individually claimed they knew
    they were going to take that series.

    Was known to have whirly-twirly shot at times. Ball spun like a hurricane or a tornado
    rather than backspin.

    Everybody is talking about the wings on this plane, but that's one nicely stuffed airplane breast.

    Buttery player & amenity stuffing. Elevated roasting for 3 hours at 30,000 feet. Let it sit out on the runway for a few hours for a moist victory. Why not.
