My Love Affair with Football, Specifically the Oklahoma Sooners

Omg! Omg! Omg! OH MAW GAWD! I don’t know if you know this, but football season is my favorite season of the year. And this weekend is my favorite weekend of the season. This weekend is OU/texas—quite possibly the biggest college football rivalry of all time.

I know some people don’t like college football, or football, or sports at all. If you are one of those people, let me tell you something: I bet you can’t go to an OU football game and not understand why we love this thing so much. And I say thing because it is not just a game, it is not just a sport, it is a way of life. It is an overwhelming sense of pride for everyone who is a part of it. It makes memories that will last a lifetime. It makes going to college worth every penny. For those of you who don’t know what I am talking about, I would like to share a little HUGE piece of my world with you. For those of you who know exactly what I’m talking about, well, this is for you too. Because it never gets old.

Some of the many reasons why I love OKLAHOMA FOOTBALL!

(Click on the links to watch the videos, I promise they’re short. Sorry I couldn’t embed the videos, I’ll be upgrading to .org soon so this won’t be a problem-o!)

The Land of the Sooners (vid: skip to min 1:26)

The Sooner Spirit (vid)

The Sooner Magic (vid: Skip to 18 second mark)

And of course … the tailgating!

You might think it’s strange that watching these videos and being at the games literally makes me want to cry, but believe me, on Saturday in Norman, Oklahoma, I know that the other 82,111 people in the stadium with me feel the same way.

I’m a Sooner born,
And a Sooner bred,
And when I die
I’ll be Sooner dead.

Rah, Ohlahoma! Rah, Oklahoma!
Rah, Ohlahoma! O-K-U!

This is OKLAHOMA football! Boomer SOONER! Texas SUCKS!
