HEY HOUSTON, THIS BUD MAY BE WITH YOU FOR ANOTHER YEAR

     Oilers Owner Bud Adams is optimistic that the team would
generate a "good turnout" at the Astrodome if it is forced to
stay in Houston for another year.  According to this morning's
HOUSTON CHRONICLE, with Adams' move to Nashville currently in
limbo because of a May referendum in TN and Houston Mayor Bob
Lanier's request that the NFL guarantee another the city team
before allowing the Oilers to leave, the chances of a lame-duck
Oiler season are growing.  John Williams reports club officials
are banking on the popularity of second-year QB Steve McNair, an
attractive schedule and the possibility of a playoff berth to
attract fans (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/13).
