Bevo, it's whats for dinner. Boomer Sooner!

OK, this is the third time I’m submitting this … I hope it goes thru … if not I give up.

For as many years as I’ve been alive I’ve recognized one tradition as fervently as others recognize Christmas, and Thanksgiving and The Superbowl all rolled into one.

The second weekend in October is sacred to me because it’s the OU/Texas football game. Yep, Boomer Sooner! I’m faithful Sooner fan thru-and-thru, I’ve only missed 1 game since graduating, so tomorrow I’m making my pilgrimage south to Dallas. Putting on my flags, and having my vehicle decorated with some obnoxious derogatory saying about the Longhorns!

My grandma taught me two very important things in life, 1) the Wishbone offense, and 2) a deep hatred for any team (college or pro) hailing from TX, NB, or FL, but mainly TX.
The game has taken on added significance since both my siblings (aka traitors) moved to the Dallas area many years ago, and were disowned when they became Longhorn converts. It’s always a fun weekend, since we were all born and raised in OK and go to the game every year. Since they get the tickets, we always sit on the “burnt orange” side. Blech! I can barely keep my bourbon spiked soda down.

Last time I checked, the line was 13 and a half points Texas. As Barry Switzer used to say “Let’s hang half a hundred on them by half time” I’m hoping that’s NOT what TX does to us. This year, me and Grandma are hanging tough though. So what if they win one year out of six. We gotta let them win every now and then so they won’t take us off their schedule completely. Ya’ll be watching Saturday at Noon. Boomer Sooner!

Oh, if you don’t know what Bevo is. Bevo is a Longhorn, and the Longhorn mascot. Let’s hope he doesn’t see much action Saturday!

Let’s hope Boomer and Sooner (the two white ponies which pull the Sooner Schooner onto the field everytime OU scores) have to run their little legs off. Heck, I just hope they have a chance to get on the field at all.

Boomer Sooner!

This game is almost always significant nationally. I will be watching here in Carolina if I can.

I lived in Texas for many but I was still a SOONER FAN. I moved to Arkansas in 2002, but I'm Still A BOOMER SOONER FAN. They can't spell in Texas either.They have the Bush education system to thank for that.
