How bout them Cowboys...

Just watched my Dallas Cowboys get whooped 44-6 to end the season. It's a great disappointment. Carl Albert lost in the state championship, I lost in my Fantasy Football championship, Dallas didn't even make the I'm just hoping OU doesn't choke in the BCS National Championship in a couple weeks. I'm starting to get a bad rep here...

What is it?

Bored out of my mind with the DVR empty, I just finished watching a show called NFL's Greatest Games. It featured Super Bowl XXXII between the Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos. I know it's crazy, but my heart was pounding the last 15 minutes as they showed the 4th quarter play out. It was like 10 years ago, and I still got chills when the Broncos owner handed over the trophy and said, "There's only four words...THIS ONE'S FOR JOHN!" (In case you don't know, he was referring to John Elway.)

So that got me thinking...what is it about sports that does that to us? What is it about grown men playing a game that makes us shake, yell and holler at the top of our lungs, argue and fight, and give up so much money and time?

Well, here's my answer...I HAVE NO IDEA, but I love it. Football, Basketball, doesn't matter, I can get into it.

Which brings me to my next point...I'm scared to death about the BCS National Championship game. I hope "Big Game" Bob shows up with the "Stoops Troops" and not the "Chokelahoma Drunken Stupors" that have showed up in recent bowl games. One thing I know for sure...I'll be shaking and yelling, and, hopefully, experiencing chills when we pull off the upset.

Puff, puff, give?

I just found out that Barack Obama smokes (cigarettes). Wow! Nuts! What role model for America.

Please pray...

I'm requesting prayers for two of my friends. Each of them work very hard week in and week out, doing the best they can to show pride in what they represent. Boomer and Sooner are the mascots for the Oklahoma Sooners. They are beautiful horses, which pull the Sooner Schooner out of the tunnel and onto the field after each Oklahoma score. As many of you know, the OU football program has set many scoring records this year, leading to great fatigue and wear & tear on these young and promising beings. Please pray that the next month will be full of rest and recovery for Boomer and Sooner as we hope there will be many more Schooner-pulling opportunities come January 8th.

Thank you, God bless, and Boomer Sooner.

Chubby Chase...

One of the things I thoroughly enjoy in this life is watching Chubby Chase Daniel play poorly, get hit hard, turn the ball over, cry like a baby, and walk to the sideline defeated. Haha! Boomer Sooner!

Texas sucks...

First of all, let me say, I've heard enough about the Big 12 South and the BCS. The University of Texas, Mack Brown, and all of their fans seemingly have no vocabulary other than "we beat them." This just proves how stupid they are. OU lost to Texas...Texas lost to Texas Tech...Texas Tech lost to OU. Alright, think about it. It is a three-way tie because IT CAN'T BE FIGURED OUT WITH HEAD TO FREAKIN HEAD. That's the whole reason there's a tie-breaker! Idiots! They say that Texas should be ahead of OU because they beat OU. Well, then Tech should be ahead of Texas because they beat Texas. Sounds pretty stupid, doesn't it? So shut up! Have you forgotten that you were beaten by Texas Tech?!?! By the way, that's the same team we beat by over 40 points. Texas beat OSU by 4 points, I think, at home...we beat them by 20 on the road (their first home lost all year). Like I said, if you could decide it by using head to head, it would've never gone to a tie-breaker.

The other thing Texas likes to cry about is that they only lost to Tech because they dropped an interception on the last drive and they only got beat on the last play. If I'm not mistaken, any team can say that about any close game (point out one play that changed the game). Also, if I'm not mistaken, they didn't lose on one play. I'm pretty sure that Texas only led for about a minute and a half total in that game. And Texas Tech drove over 60 yards in under a minute to win it, immediately after Texas had taken their first lead. I'm pretty sure you have no right to claim that you're a "championship" team if you allow someone else to drive down the field like that in less than a minute AND score a touchdown. Dropped interceptions, defense, tackling, those are the things that determine how good a team you are. They aren't excuses you can use to say that "you shouldn't have lost the game."

It's obvious that ESPN and a few other media outlets have an agenda. Okay, I get it, everyone is afraid to put the Sooners in a big game because they've choked a couple of times. However, you shouldn't fry Oklahoma because the BCS is screwed up and you might not like the Big 12's tie-breaker rules. No one from Texas was complaining about the tie-breaker rules until they were on the short end of it. They sound like a bunch of babies arguing over a toy. Texas' athletic director was interviewed and quoted talking about how bad the tie-breaker rules are for the Big 12...he was on the committee that helped form the rules!!! And all the politicking!?!? Mack Brown comes on the ABC broadcast for the OU/OSU game and cries for 5 minutes. It proves what type of person Mack Brown is, but it's more ridiculous that ESPN encourages it. I've lost all respect for many people that I used to enjoy listening to. Stoops was asked to do the same thing during the Texas/Texas A&M game and he refused because he said that's not right. I'm sure glad Stoops is with OU - that's class.

If you really think that Texas got screwed, it's nothing new. The same writers and talking ESPN idiots cried like this last year for Georgia, in 2006 for Michigan, in 2004 for Auburn, and so on, and so on. Yes, the BCS sucks, but it can't be changed! It's done! Let the teams play it out on the field and shut up.
