NOTES:

Second time is a charm, and I was happy to add Mike to my collection of Oilers. Unfortunately I saw on Twitter, that he like many Houston Oilers, has forgotten his HOUSTON Oilers fan roots, and has embraced the Tennessee Titan traitors, appearing in Tennessee for franchise’s ‘homecoming game’.

NOTES:
After failing on Brock a few years ago, I went ahead and gave him another shot on these two cards. He’s enjoying life living in Arizona with his wife and two kids- that he adores and loves being a part of their lives. Recently he’s fallen back in love with football again, and watches it apparently non stop.
