Default A nice little quote from a book I just read.

I just finished reading Ed Fowlers book. "Loser Takes All: Bud Adams, Bad Football, & Big Business".

I thought I might share this quote from an old favorite player of mine.

Quote:
"A lot of the younger guys are excited about going to Tennessee, but, to tell you the truth. I haven't felt that excitement yet. I'm a Houston Oiler, and no matter how many years I play in Tennessee, I'll always be a Houston Oiler."
Any guesses who it is?


How about Hall of Famer Bruce Mathews.

Props to Bruce. The book is pretty good. You can tell Ed doesn't exactly have a fondness for Bud. The book brought back a lot of old memories, both good and bad, and showed some the things going on behind the scenes. I had forgoten that Dud demanded a multi use domed stadium for him and the Rockets like had been built in San Antonio. We all know how that stadium has worked out. I also didn't remember that when Lanier found out Dud was going to get a much cheaper open air stadium in Nashville that he told Bud that he could get that deal here, but Dud wanted the cash in Nashville. It was published in 97' before we were on the radar to get a team back so it is a little dated, but a good read anyway.
