RIP BUM He was a real man's man.I got to meet him and Wade at the Touchdown Cub Superboil the year that Benson bought the team. I have a fond memory of that night.

Re: Bum Philips Passes at Age 90

hagan, I remember those anmes and looking at the list written out like, well yes. That was the origin of The Dome Patorl. PK Morten Anderson was in for the 3pts and many times, made the all or most of Saints score.
Barry,I remember some of the Bum quotes.
The one about the two kinds of coaches is funny and true.

Any word from Earl Campbell yet?
He and Bum were close. They had a close coach -player relationship.

Boutte, I think his heart was in the right place, but he simply could not repeat the Oilers magic years here .
Many of the key guys were past their prime: Stabler, Campbell.

I think Bum had the right idea after he retired, he really retired. He must have had pleasure for as the NFL goes in watching Wade do well as a DC.

The cocaine would have gotten the best of LT in New Orleans.

RIP Bum. Have a lot of memories of the Saints under Bum, but him bringing over Kenny "Snake" Stabler, and Earl Campbell well past their prime stick out. As a kid, I had a black and gold snake, and when you shook it, it rattled. It was a Kenny Stabler snake toy!! Wish I still had it.

Re: Bum Philips Passes at Age 90

As a young teen the family and I met him in Ruidoso, New Mexico one summer at a restaurant. He signed a couple things for us and treated us like family. Guess he was surprised to find Saints fans that knew who he was in the middle of no where.
