I remember those Bum Phillips Luv Ya Blue Houston Oilers days.

If the Houston Oilers did well, everyone wanted their TVs repaired.

We came to the USA in 1977 from Italy.

Dad was looking for ways to make money and support us and pay the legal fees to get us Resident Alien Permanent Residence status with the INS (Immigration Naturalization Services, now called U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), after it was reorganized in 2003 after 9/11 and DHS was created) so we wouldn't be send back to Italy once his work visa expired, which was being sponsored by a friend of his friend that was already legally in the USA, who owned a hotel and Dad worked there nights.

Anyway, in 1978 Dad came across a TV repair shop in Houston that has been around since 1952, has good Better Business Bureau rating and is well known in the community.

It's one of those stores when someone asks where do I go to get my TV repaired or my car repaired, everyone will always mention it first.

The owner was the original owner and he was retiring due to illness.

Dad bought the store, one location only, and the owner was willing to co-sign a business loan for Dad because he saw Dad is an honest man and a man of his word.

To make a long story short, back in 1978 TVs were expensive especially those big combo sets that were 10 feet long, had a turntable and a stereo and a cassette player all build into it in a big real wooden cabinet:

yes, I had to help carry those things 1 or 2 flights of apartment stairs or bring one downstairs and getting them to fit through the apartment units doors or to turn them to clear the stairs railing in a narrow stairsway or walkway between the floors of apartment building, was a pain.

During the summer when school was out, Dad send me and my brother out 5 days a week and we were out in the humid 100+ degrees Houston heat for 10 hours a day with the service call technicians to go answer house calls and pick up TVs and VCRs for repair in the shop and deliver the ones that were repaired in shop.

Now that I think about it, Dad never paid me and my brother for our work.

Then came the VCR which were also expensive.

Dad made a ton of money repairing TVs and VCRs. He was doing so well that by 1981, he had 2 other stores, one in far north Houston by the international airport which was just starting to be develop and grow with homes that started at $150-200k and one in West Houston where all the folks who worked in the Oil industry lived at.

Dad sold his TV repair businesses in 1990. By that time there was no money to be made in it since you could buy a VCR or a TV for a couple of $100 dollars.

During the days when VCR and TV were expensive, the average cost of repairing one of them was $200-300 and people had no choice especially with VCRs because there were very few qualified technicians around who knew how to fix them and Dad had 2 of them working in each one of the 3 shops.

Either get it fixed or go spend $600 for a new TV or $1000 for a new VCR.

He made sure the guys he hired to do house calls didn't know much about VCRs so they will have to tell the customers: I can't fix this here, it has to go into the shop.

Many customers sued Dad in small claim court and none have ever won.

They bring their TV in no sound no picture and pay $300 to fix it.

3 days later, a week later, a month later, it broke again and again it's no sound no picture.

So the customer thinks it's supposed to be under warranty from the previous repair: 30 days on parts and 90 days on labor.

Nope.

It maybe the same symptom but not the same cause.

The first time it was maybe a tripler and the second time it's a transformer.

Not the same thing. So it's another $300 to fix it.

Some customers get irate: I paid you $300 to fix it already and now it broke again and it's the same thing from last time - no sound no picture.

I want it fix for free.

So they take Dad to small claims court and not once did he lose.

There have been many great QBs over the years that never reached their potential due to being drafted to a shitty team. Fran Tarkenton, Jim Plunkett and many others could be where Brady, Montana, and Elway are if not for a bad draw.

Agree on these, especially Tarkenton.

Football Perspective blogs that are linked to Pro Football Reference did a list of the 100 greatest QBs in NFL history last year. Their formula was using DVOA and a number of different advanced statistics to determine placement in their list. One of the key stats they are big on is avoiding sacks and sack percentage, while most fans tend to focus on TD/INT ratio, they argue against this on their blog cause it was different decade to decade (INT percentage rates were at their highest in the 1960's and 1970's. Completion percentage has also dramatically went up in the past 20 years, so this is a flawed stat to go by too). Their list also discounts the ridiculous ring argument so guys like Dan Marino, Dan Fouts and Ken Andersen get their due.

Fran Tarkenton ranked in the top 10 and the highest of all the 1960's-1970's era QBs (Roger Staubach ranked behind him in the top 20, whom the editors said was underrated due to their stat measure formula to create the list). The only two QBs who ranked better than him in sack percentage was the guys that they put at #1 and #2 - Peyton Manning and Dan Marino.

You could make a strong argument for him being the best QB of that era.

100% agree on John Elway. He had 4 of the best 5 years of his career in his mid to late 30's in Mike Shanahan's West Coast scheme. Elway spent years with Dan Reeves and an old school Smashmouth style offense that didn't quite fit his skill set as a quarterback.

I think it's ridiculous when people suggest he "rode Terrell Davis to 2 rings". Those Broncos teams scored over 500 points in both seasons and Elway's numbers were good with some of his best AV numbers for his career. Rod Smith and Shannon Sharpe were great those years too and it helped that they had Elway to throw passes to them. For him to have such a late career peak just goes to show his potential was wasted early in his career being stuck in Reeves' old offenses.

Just buy his contract out now and get rid of him since they have already replaced the OC.

Dan Marino.

Never won a Super Bowl and only been to the Super Bowl once in his entire time with the Dolphins.

Every year I hoped for him to go back to the Super Bowl and it never happened.

Unlike other QBs, they leave a team they have been at for a long time and they go to another team.

Not Marino, once he left the Dolphins after 17 years, he retired.
