Luv Ya BLUE!, Luv Ya BUM!
November 11, 1965. BUM PHILLIPS passed away yesterday and in his memory I am posting this Stokely's Coloring Contest. I loved the HOUSTON OILERS back in the 1970's and early 1980's when I was a teenager and young adult. Mike Barber, Ray Childress and of course, the Tyler Rose - Earl Campbell, were just a few of the players I would cheer for while watching the games on T.V. or listening on the radio. I loved the OILERS whether they won or lost, and they lost a lot more games than they ever won, but I was a true fan. I have not cared about football since the people in this city drove the OILERS out of town with their hatred. I did root for the Tennessee TITANS for several years because so many of the players had been OILERS. Anyway, thanks BUM for the memories.
