After winning the game against the Miami Dolphins in 1978, Campbell stated, "The display of Blue was a chance for people of all races and backgrounds to come together as a city." The Luv Ya Blue Era was born! Licensed products began appearing all over Houston. Joskes opened Luv ya Blue retail shops inside their stores. Luv ya Blue was a sports promotion that captured the connection of a city to its team! After that night, blue-clad fans began to bring "Luv Ya Blue" signs to the historic Astrodome!
Local singer/songwriter Mack Hayes wrote and recorded the song, We’re the Houston Oilers in 1978. After a game in 1979, where 50,000 "Luv Ya Blue" flashcards were distributed and the Houston Oilers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mack Hayes wrote, copyrighted and recorded his song, Luv ya Blue. The song became the Oilers' rallying song the following year and Hayes and the Love Ya Blue band played at the Astrodome for each of the 1980 home games.
