The Oilers are gone and ain't coming back, let's not act as though we are settling for the new love.
If broken hearts were so easily mended...
Yeah, the Houston
Oilers are gone, but with Slug Adams dry-humping the oil derrick and colors out of greed, it's not like the "Oilers" are dead. We saw them in uniform a couple of times last season, and there is no reason to believe that The Rug will leave it at that. There's dollars in them thar hills!!
It's only a matter of time before the 'classic' Oilers uni (circa 1978) makes it's re-emergence, and it would not surprise me to see them tarnished in front of our Texans. It would be a classless move by Slug, but class has never been his M.O.
Bitter? Me? Memories do not die. Just this week the Houston Press has a cover story about Houston's greatest and worst sports moments. Any guess how many times the Oilers were mentioned? It's pretty much a given what the worst sports moment is by anyone with a pulse in 1993.
And then I have to hear / read all the historical revisionists year after year blame the Houston fans, media, and politicians for the Oilers leaving town. It's all horse crap, though, because we prove time and time again that it was ONE MAN who made that decision.
So yeah, let the wound heal...except for the constant scab picking and salt pouring by a few parties...obviously, greater success than 9-7 in 8 seasons by our Texans would help...
