A fervent prayer

Oh Lord,

I ask your intercession on Saturday, when my beloved Sooners play the minions of Satan Texas Longhorns. It's been a good ride, Lord, the last five or so years, but I am not ready to let go. I cannot wear the Texas Longhorns shirt to school next week. It would cause cellular decomposition equivalent to matter meeting anti-matter. The assistant principal from Texas is savoring the anticipated moment of triumph. I will buy him the barbeque, Lord, but the longhorn shirt! Spare me!

Saturday. The Cotton Bowl. Be there.

Boomer sooner!

You have my sympathy. I felt the same way on Friday when my Red Sox lost.

Yes, today was a hard day. I was greeted by a big orange text email, gloating. I will have to wear the shirt and order the barbeque later this week.

And what happened to the Red Sox? I was hoping for a little momentum. But then again, I'm a Cubs fan, so I'm used to disappointment and adversity. That helps with the whole teacher thing.

Well since I have a son at UT, guess I can't say I'm sorry.

I forgive you, Mike. Blood is thicker than bloggers. Wello, at least you're not a Yankees fan :).

I trust you are watching the limbs of Satan whip Colordo - 70 to 3. At least Colordo held the score during the 4th quarter. However, Texas was playing all their reserves!
