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

October 28, 2013

It was a sad weekend the weekend before last for those who remember legendary Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints coach Bum Phillips, who died at age 90.
Before I go on, for those who aren't aware, the Houston Oilers are known today as the Tennessee Titans when owner Bud Adams moved the franchise from Houston to Nashville, Tenn.
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!”
