Bud Adams did it again.
Billionaire Bud Adams (net worth $1.2 billion, according to Forbes) let his 2013-14 Tennessee Titans bus it from Nashville to Destin, Florida to shoot a bikini calendar for his Tennessee Titans – in Titans bikinis. You might remember that I had to address this issue last year when Bud’s cheerleaders were inconvenienced when their bus broke down on the way to Destin.
Did Bud, 90, take our advice and drop $20,000 (39 people at $500 per person) to fly the girls to Florida? Nope. The ladies have finished their bikini calendar photos and are on a 441 mile trip back to Nashville.
The best part this year is that Bud was bragging in March about overspending on free agents.
The Titans have spent $88.5 million on free agents, signing former Bills guard Andy Levitre (six years, $46.8 million) and former 49ers tight end Delanie Walker (four years, $17.5 million) on Tuesday, then coming back with former Lions defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill (three years, $11.4 million), former Jets running back Shonn Greene (three years, $10 million) and former Colts linebacker Moise Fokou (two years, $2.8 million).
Adams joked that he hopes the money translates into playoff appearances.
“I may have a heart attack if we don’t,” he said. “I just had my 90th birthday and somebody asked me, ‘Adams, how long are you going to stay at this thing?’ I said ‘I’ve made it 90, so I might as well go to 100.’ And I’d like to get in the playoffs and see some winning football over that stretch, too.
