And there was sadness in the Sooner Nation
We had a great crowd at the Embassy Suites for the Orange bowl, over twenty OU faithful gathered to cheer on our Sooners, and for about five minutes, we were mighty happy.
The USC done did us wrong.
It was made worse by a small group of drunken "Sooner haters" who had different alma-maters, none of which were USC, but had all come and decided to root against us just for the fun of it. And root they did, even going so far as mock us by yelling "Boomer!" whenever USC scored a touchdown.
The crowd had dwindled to about six or seven by the time the game mercifully ended. I still love my Sooners, though, and am proud of the fact that I was the only OU club member to make every single watch party this season. We lose a LOT of talent this year, and next season doesn't seem to be near as promising. I'll root for OU nonetheless.
The treadmill is ordered, but they were out of stock, so it'll be next week before I can start that. I finished off the last of the 2004 Diet Coke yesterday, so its juice, tea, water and coffee from here on out, but mostly juice and water.
I'm now ranked #61 in the world on Scrabble Online, though I doubt seriously that will continue for very long, as I'm sure the number of online players will increase as more people buy the game.
So, congratulations to the USC Trojans, the Auburn Tigers, and the Utah Utes for their undefeated seasons.
Boomer Sooner in 2005!
