Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

Recharged And Running

A huge bracket on the arena's side. Thrilling to see my team advance!
The car was towed from the downtown Oklahoma City parking lot and within only a few hours, the shop dude was calling with mostly good news. Said the car was fixable. That it wasn't out cold and likely still had many more miles in its future. This Cowboy escaped with just a new battery. The tow bill is supposed to be reimbursed by the insurance company. It should get me home safely on Sunday.

After falling apart late in the season, the OSU Cowboys are acting like someone got them a new battery. It's amazing! The team squeaked out a last-second win Friday night over the tournament's No. 2 seed (and ranked in the top 10 in the country) Texas A&M. The final score was 57-56.

With the tournament, for the first time ever, hosted by Oklahoma City, the folks wearing orange far out numbered most other fans. However, in Friday's early game, I was really surprised by the big showing by Kansas Jayhawks fans. There were gobs of them. I guess they have been playing fantastic ball lately, are the tournament's No. 1 seed, may get a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, and have fans that are fanatical about 'Hawk basketball.

The Ford Center in Oklahoma City is a great venue and, so far, an awesome spot for Cowboys. However, the super close victory and gut-wrenching last three shots taken and missed by A&M during the final 10 seconds of the game almost provided me a heart attack. But folks clad in orange were hollering and going hog wild as the clock showed 00:00. I still can't believe it!

Next up is the Texas Longhorns, the tournament's No. 3 seed and a team ranked in the country's top 25. Hope the new-found resurgence by the Cowboys still has some juice in it!

Congrats also to the Pittsburgh Panthers for their win Friday night. A special shout out to the Meezers and their mom.

Go Sooners!!! Mom said to say that. She was born in Norman, OK. We are sure what a sooner is but we figure it is better to be sooner that later, but we aren't sure about that either. We mean if you are later 'cause of nap or eatin treats than that is okay, right? ~Poiland Tribe

Poiland Tribe -- we're Cowboys, not Sooners. At least my team is. But everyone gets confused with that. But I got your point. When I got to the Oklahoma City area, I always stay with friends in Norman. It's a neat city. Growing tons! So is Oklahoma City. It was very impressive.

Pitt is dancing, Meezers! I bet they are going to have a great tournament run! I may adopt them.
