Bud Adams gives Bills a Double Rods salute

From the Titans Insider blog:

Titans owner Bud Adams was mighty happy to see his team defeat the Bills on Sunday at LP Field.

The 86-year-old owner made an appearance on the sideline in the closing minutes, and even did a little dance as the Titans capped a 41–17 victory.

Then he turned toward the Buffalo sideline and gave the Bills the middle finger. Make that two middle fingers — Adams was using both hands.

Earlier, the native Texan flashed a "Hook em' horns" sign to fans in the West sideline seats.

It capped an eventful afternoon for Adams, who watched much of the game with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. It will be interesting to see if Goodell has any reaction to Adams' special salute to the Bills.

At least one Titan thought it was pretty funny.

"I don't know if he did it, but I condone fun things,'' cornerback Cortland Finnegan said. "If he was having fun doing it, then by all means, do what you do.''

Added Titans linebacker Stephen Tulloch: "He is a cool owner and it is good to see him around here supporting us. To have an owner like that, it's cool.''

Bud's not a native Texan. He was born in Bartlesville, OK. (according to Wikipedia).

Most of us here in Houston would not claim him, even if he was born here.

Still this is pretty damn funny. Adams is a character and there are times I wish we had him back here in Houston as our owner, even if he is a drunk, obnoxious old toad.
