Broke my heart when they were intentionally hosed at Pittsburgh in 1979-1980.

Oilers caught that ball, won that game.

Loved the Bummer..loved the cowboy hat..Luv Ya Blue!

"Dallas Cowboys may be America's team, but the Houston Oilers are Texas' team."
"I never scrimmage Oilers against Oilers...what for? Houston isn't on our schedule." (Source: The Book of Sports Lists)
(To an official) "Hey, can I, can I tell you one thing? That's three holding penalties on one football team in a quarter and a half. (Pauses) That ain't funny."
(To an official) "Now, you can't do that! If you do it, I'm telling you you'll have more hell over it than a little bit."

of Earl Campbell, "I don't know if he's in a class by himself, but whatever class he's in, it don't take long to call the roll."[8]

re: Bum Phillips Passes Away


really think about this. Bum was born in 1923! holy crap. what a life. I don't think any generation would have seen as much change over their life as folks born in the early 1900s that live this long. Wow. RIP
