This week is officially OU/TX week. It started immediatly (read in an Al Eschbach voice for dramatic effect) after the OU/Baylor game on Saturday (which wasn't much of a game at all!). I am super excited for this game. So to all you OU fans, I leave you with this great story.
A first grade teacher explained to her class that she is a Texas Longhorns fan. She asked her students to raise their hands if they are Texas fans too. Not really knowing what a Texas fan was, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands fly into the air. There was, however, one exception. A little girl named Lauren didn't follow the crowd. The teacher asked her why she has decided to be different.
"Because I'm not a Texas fan" she replied.
"Then" asked the teacher, "What are you?"
"I'm a proud University of Oklahoma - Boomer Sooner fan" boasts the little girl.
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red (ironic). She asks Lauren why she is an Oklahoma fan.
"Well, my Dad and Mom are both Sooner fans, so I'm a Sooner fan too." she proudly responds.
The teacher is angry now. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was an idiot. What would you be then?
"Lauren smiled and said, "Then I'd be a Texas fan!"
Good OU/Texas humor.
