Owner of the Tennessee Titans, Bud Adams, died at the spry age of 90.

The Tennessee Titans, formerly the Houston Oilers, makes this the second Huston Oiler-connected death in a row!  Who does the bell toll for, Mike Munchak?  It tolls for thee…

Adams graduated from CulverMilitaryAcademy in 1940 after lettering in three sports. After a brief stint at MenloCollege, he transferred to the University of Kansas, where he played briefly on the varsity football team as he completed an engineering degree.  In the end, all that learnin’ made Bud wiser.

He was all rich with oil money.  So he had a new car, caviar, and a four-star daydream when he said “I think I’ll buy me a football team.”   And if you don’t get that, you know nothing about rock and roll.  Period.

When he moved the Oilers to Tennessee, he had trouble re-naming the team.  Oilers was inductive of Texas.  Let’s see… Tennessee… The Patriots already have the Flying Elvis logo, so we can’t use him…  The Hayseeds?  The Tennessee Inbreeds?  The Tennessee Shotguns?  The Hicks?  The Memphis Slack-Jawed Yokels?  In the end, he decided that alliteration would be better than trying to represent the state.  So, the Tennessee Titans were born.

Adams died at his home.  He was discovered by police who got a call about a welfare check… wait… he was on welfare?  Seriously?  He’s just one of those damned, lazy welfare queens living off of this country’s teat!  He and his ilk are what’s destroying this countr-….

Huh?…… Ohhhhhh….  They were checking on his welfare, not bringing him a welfare check…. well, easy mistake.

This hot goes to: Tailgating with Jesus!  Yes, Apparently Bud is coming to the Tailgating party and he’s bringin’ the Sushi!  Because Bean is now tied with Team Sushi!

He’s not quite at triple digits, but he is 40 points ahead of the Ghoul Pool Administrator.  And that’s got to be satisfying.

Happy pooling,

SPMI
