No pics and no videos of him retrieving the tee...very strange.

I remember Mojo (although I was young) as well as I remember being there when Tony Zendejas had a career game, then broke his leg.

Still looking for pics of Mojo.

I came across this in my quest: Oilers leave rich legacy of low-budget absurdity

There is some funny stuff in that article. Here's a bit of trivia from it:

Q. Because of a locker room theft, the Oilers were forced to play their first game with 20 players decked out in jerseys belonging to what team?

A. The Dallas Texans. The Texans beat the Oilers, 27-10, in the first exhibition game for both clubs.

More than three decades or so back I was at an Oiler game with my friend Marc. He later went on to marry my sister. Hated the seats since they were in the dome right up front where you had to watch the game like a coach on the sidelines. Due to the round configuration in the Astrodome the middle of the field is further away than the seats at the 20 yard line, so in a weird sort of way the seats further out from the 50 were better seats. The Chiefs were in town and I can't tell you much about the game except for Mojo and the fact that we lost. What I do remember was that Marc and I had great fun laughing and pointing out Mojo slamming across the field as fast as he could, flipping at the end and spiking the tee. We weren't mean spirited, but we yelled MOJO and didn't mind laughing at his antics since there wasn't much to cheer about on the field I assume. At the end of the game Mojo came running right at us. At first I thought he may have heard us and was upset, but he ran right up to what I think was his parents...sitting a few seats down from us. I think we both felt like lessrons (like morons, but somehow less). I don't feel bad (now) because we weren't mean (sheepish may be a good word though), but I did feel a little less intellectual that day. I have nothing but respect for Mojo. He's part of the Oiler mosaic. He's woven into the never changing history of my Oilers. When I was young I'd see the old guys reminiscing about the Brooklyn Dodgers on TV sometimes. Never really connected with them. I thought, hell, you still have a team up there. Two really. I understand them now that I'm older and I look back at the team that no longer exists; one that I followed as a youth growing up in Houston. Great memories. RIP Mojo

Mojo was the man!! I remember as a kid wondering what the **** he was doing when he was rolling around on the ground. Watching a fat man doing that randomly at a football game was always so weird, but entertaining to me.

Field level at the dome was a horrible view. I always preferred mezzanine seats there.

We my dad and I had just recieved to 50 yardlie seats in the Loge(sp) great seats but the next season Dud Adams announces they were leaving Houston for Memphis, We tore up the check as soon as we heard the news. It was too bad that I had to miss those years watching football with my dad we used to love to go to the games together. He had to sell his Texans tickets cause it got so hard for him to walk in and out of the game.
