Wade on his Twitter account is asking fans to help financially support an opera that is inspired by the life of Bum Phillips. The Luv Ya Blue era, I suppose, is both a triumph and tragedy of operatic proportions. They need to raise a little over $5000 by 4/29. They are 50% funded for the first part of the project. I will personally be embarrassed if we can't raise that much money from the 4th largest city and surrounds to honor someone we love so much. I wrote about it here. "No word if there would be casting of Bud Adams in this opera. Most of the best operas have some sort of devil character." But the best link to go to is the direct site. You can donate any amount. It is like a Kickstarter project...you donate any amount from $1 to whatever. If they fund the project by the date, they charge you. If they don't, you get your money back. The way that the site processes payments is through the Amazon merchant system. It takes 10 minutes tops to do. If we all work together, we can make this happen. Do it for Bum. Do it because Wade asked us to. This thing needs to exist. Just be thankful they aren't doing a Jerry Glanville opera.
