For JJ Watt, celebrating Bum Phillips’ life at his memorial service was a special experience. Having always taken Bum’s words to heart, Watt was particularly inspired by the way Phillips’ “Luv Ya Blue” Oilers captured the city of Houston. And with that as a driving force, JJ and the Texans are excited to work hard everyday to create that same kind of relationship with Houston and make the city proud. Article.
