    Who will be in attendance when Bruce Mathews is officially inducted into the Hall of Fame. Bruce is a Houston Sports icon that is within the league of Earl Campbell, Roger Clements, Hakeem Ologawon(SP) Sorry Hakeem, Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell. If you are going to Canton let me know as I along with some of my friends will be attending. Sadly we will not be taking along one of those friends who had planned on going but we wish said friend well (you know who you are). It would be great meeting up with old Oilers fans to cheer on Bruce at his induction. Bruce might have played for the Dud of the NFL but he was a significant part of the Houston Oilers and he has shined the light of Greatness on this great city. We will be tailgating on the road to the stadium on sunday so if you out and about look for us we would love to have you.

    Man, I'd love to be there. Bruce has always been a class act, in spite of having to get paid by Mr. Slime.

    Have fun, man! I know you'll represent H-town well!

    Bruce Mathews rocks!!! Have a good time, and don't let the inbreads claim Bruce. They never got to watch Bruce take on his brother Clay in the old AFC Central days...

    I better hear chants of "B R U C E", "B R U C E"......

    Bruce Mathews will always be an Oiler, the tacks just got to borrow him for a while after that awesome expansion draft they were allotted.

    Congratulations Bruce!

    Hey Joe Texan, tried to send you PM, but your mailbox is full.

    Are you going to the Oakland game with the same crew as last year?

    I would like to get a ticket with that group of people if possible.

    I have never been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    I know that they make bronze busts of all the players, but do they have photos of each of them in their section?

    If so do you think the photos will be of Bruce in an Oilers' uniform or a Titans' uniform?

    If it is in a Titans Uni that would be the biggest injustice there is. If he goes in as an Oiler, his picture has to be in that Uni.

    I could've sworn that Bud's franchise has lots of HoF players in it's history.
