Default BUM on 610 right now

Man......I'm almost getting a tear to my eye listening to BUM right now. I know he is getting old and it is great to hear his voice, but he sounds very frail and he is clearly having some issues.

He made a comment that he thought the Cowboys vs Texans game was today. He also had a bad cough/throat thing while on the air.

Anyway, just makes me remember him and the good old days. I mean, he's 87 I know but it just sucks to hear him like that.

Hail to you BUM....you were one of the good guys man!

Default Re: BUM on 610 right now

You know what Reliant Park "needs" don't you? A Bronze statue of Bum Phillips and Earl Campbell together. Bum in his cowboy hat* with Earl in uniform standing beside him with his helmet off. Both of them looking like the would on the sideline would be perfect.

That needs to happen.



*Yes, I know he never wore it inside the dome but the statue would be outside, ergo the hat would be appropriate.

Please don't get me wrong-I know that and I'm sure they would never approve of the team in Tennessee.

My point was that unfortunately I wouldn't count on them getting a statue at Reliant stadium because they were never Texans-they were part of the organization that is now in Tennessee.

I would never, never put them in a Tack uniform.

There was absolutely no insult meant and I humbly appologize to Bum and Earl if there was any doubt of where they belong-in HOUSTON OILERS BLUE!!!!

As long as logos aren't involved it's a non-issue. Obscure the logo on the helmet and the rest is easy. Bud Adams doesn't own either of their likenesses nor does he own the number "34".

As long as the thing doesn't say "Oilers" on it we're good.

Start a petition eh? That sounds like fun.

Easy. Earl could be holding his helmet under his arm. No Oilers logo.

Problem sol-ved!


The City of Houston and all professional teams here should retire the #34 (although the Astros and Rockets already have)..


Seriously though, the #34 should never be worn again!!

Default Re: BUM on 610 right now

I just sent an email to John McClain at the Chronicle. I think that his thoughts on this would valuable. He knows so many people with the Texans, the old Oilers, and with Harris County. I just asked him where he would begin this process and who he would get in touch with first if he wanted to try to get something like this done.

I'll post his answer to me if I get one (I expect I will, he's been very good about answering things I've emailed him in the past). Who knows, maybe he'll mention the idea in his blog or somewhere in the Chronicle. In the meantime I'm going to start an online petition. It seems kind of futile to me (I don't know how seriously anyone takes those) but it might help to gauge interest in this. When I figure out how to do that I'll post a link to it as well.

I'd totally be down with the idea! It would be about time too and it would be easy enough to keep it so that Satan err Bud up in possum hollar couldn't say jack about it.

Also, this would be the perfect middle finger to him just like he likes to throw around.

While we're on the subject, I think there should be some kind of tribute to Moon too. Just an aside.

And that petition can be found here (I seriously hope I didn't misspell anything or otherwise screw this up)

Umm, "spread the word"?
