…and Happy Holidays from OU Athletics.
May Santa reward you with many gifts.
For those of you who don’t follow college football, there is much more that goes on than just the game itself. Especially when some fans want to insert themselves into the game and fantasize that they actually add to the atmosphere and/or the outcome of the contest.
In Oklahoma, the annual season ending game between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, generally referred to as “Bedlam,” is always a hotly contested and competitive game. The favored team doesn’t always win, nor the home team. In this year’s game, the emotions were flamed even higher as both teams were highly ranked in a “Winner Takes All” game, the winner would be the conference champion and a chance to play in the national playoff.
At OKStates T. Boone Pickens stadium, the walls to the field area are lined with a padded material. OKSt. fans known as “Paddle People” line the front row and beat on the pads with flat, padded paddles. They have gotten more bizarre by the year since they first began.
This past Saturday night, they nearly exceeded audience comprehension.
Let the fun begin:
While there have been some preliminary games already played, most of which were difficult to watch due to sloppy play, today Saturday 5 Sep 15 marks the first full day of scheduled games.
All teams are excited and ready, some bearing predictions of competing for the National Championship.
I’m more than ready and so are the Oklahoma Sooners, and they have running back Samaje Perine. Yes, those arms are for real and not photo-shopped.
After a long cold Winter and long hot Summer, finally we have the best season of all to enjoy for the next three months.
Some people think that the “blues” haven’t been the same since Stevie Ray Vaughn died tragically in a helicopter crash on this day twenty five years ago.
Perhaps, perhaps not, but I know I have never felt quite the same way about the music style and while other blues legends have since passed away, there isn’t anyone else taking of the crown.
Be at peace, SRV, your music lives on and you are missed.
The count down continues and we are getting close to the best time of the year.
Soon the bands will be marching and playing, then the players take the field.
I will never tire of this video. Be sure and watch it to the end.
As for the jersey number 25, this number is now assigned to one Joe Mixon, a red shirt Freshman.
