Thanks for the memories, and the hat, coach — RIP Bum Phillips

October 28, 2013

The Oilers may have had one of the greatest fight songs ever. It started out, “Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers No. 1.” The crowd at the Astrodome would go nuts waving their blue pom-poms and blue signs that said “Love Ya, Blue!”
