  1. Ahh, good to see you posting the official OU logo – inverted Bevo. I hope our friends from the north have a wonderful time staying in our La Quintas rather than their usual two-wheeled accommodations.

  2. @Amelia – Really got creative there, didn’t you? Don’t forgot all the meth jokes. Oh, and lack of teeth. And dating sisters. Geez, I feel like B Rabbit on 8 Mile. Originality isn’t your strong suit, but that’s OK. It’s not for everyone.

  8. I didn’t go to either school (hail Texarkana Junior College Fightin’ Bulldogs) but JB, based on my 3 hours of Fundamentals of Criminal Investigation, anybody that can reel off tht crap or would take the time to put it into a post needs to be seen to by a state institution — either state (but not Arkansas–all those words would wear out the lips quicker than Sooie on a duck. Whatever that means).
