A Night At The Bum Phillips Opera

There is a great writeup of BUM PHILLIPS ALL-AMERICAN OPERA by Mike Tanier at Sports On Earth
"This is not your typical night at the opera. Bum Phillips All-American Opera is not about Teutonic gods or Shakespearean kings, but a football coach who never reached the Super Bowl and whose team no longer exists. Instead of legendary battles, the characters reenact the 1979 AFC playoffs. Instead of Siegfried, there's backup quarterback Gifford Nielsen."
