Per KHOU breaking news:
. Godspeed Toni. I hope you're up there Keeking a Touchdown.
He always did "Keek the touchdowns" for us. First as an Oiler, then as a Gambler.
Even years later during that whole "Ian Howfield" debacle I had it in the back of my mind that no matter how old he was Toni could have done better.
A member of the last truly great Houston football team (78-80 Oilers) is gone and it makes me realize that we're going to start losing those guys pretty soon. It's one of those losses that you really feel if you loved that team. Those guys played above their level not beneath hit (yes Texans, after Sunday that was aimed squarely at you).
Sad to hear the news of his passing.
A cute little story:
Bum Phillips said in his autobiography that Toni Fritsch was so good at kicking field goals that he would practice missing them.
I have fond memories of Toni as a Houston Gambler. RIP Toni
Wow, I haven't heard his name in quite a awhile now. Man, he was still pretty young at 60. That's a shame.
RIP Tony Fritsch
Boy, time marches on.
Toni was like money in the bank. How many games did he win for us? Amazing.
R.I.P Toni .... I have MANY fond memories :Oilerflag:
We still have a little Oiler in us and it's sad to hear my heart goes out to his family.
