2/14 3:22 PM You know it, man. I even have Wednesday evenings off. So Mrs.Gern and I would just need to hit the Grandparents up for sitting.
Email me with the details of when you'll be getting to town, etc. We could drive down to Norman and meet you two at a restaurant on campus or I-35 so it would be easy for you to just pop on over to the game.
I wanted to go to Ou but my dad would not let me go out of state. I guess my dad knew what was best for me because my friends ended up at UNT with me!
My scoop name is obviously from the Great "Len Bias". He was my idol. We all know the story about him and his drug overdose. He was the player that I kept every box score and magazine cover or articles from his playing days. I'm a Len Bias collector. I have every one of his jersey's from white to red to yellow and even the black one. I know it sounds pretty stupid but he gave me so much inspiration to play basketball that it made me a better player. All in all his death has made me realize how life is so short and more imprtantly doing stupid things can take your life away.
I'm through but thought I would tell everyone what my facination is with Len Bias.
I have a wife name Tina and a wonderful daughter named Jasmine. There is no question who rules in the household at my house. Frankly, I enjoyed being bossed around by these two. They are my life and I could not imagine being myself without them in my heart! I love them dearly.
I'm 5'11 about 240 lbs. I workout six days a week with my family. I try to take care of myself on daily basis by eating right and watching my fat intake. However, I have a soft spot for pizza and Grey Goose Vodka.
Anyhow, my love for the Sooners started in 1971. A classic game eventhough we lost to the Corn. I asked my dad why the red team had three running backs? He told me that was the wishbone and that it was a great running back offense. I was so intrigued by what my dad had told me that after the game the neighborhood kids and I tried our best to run the wishbone offense in our backyard. Needless to say, it was terribly failed bit. However, my love for the Sooners was born on such a terrible loss for our Boys!!!
In the years to come my love for the Sooners has had me in many tifts with Texas fans and Corn fans over the years. I actually did not see the 1987 RRS due to being in jail w/public intoxication and disturbing the peace! A little fist fight w/a T-Sipper. Seemed like a good idea at the time but we watched the game in our minds at Lew Sterret Jail. My dad was a very smart man in bailing me out after the game was over. That lesson has always stayed in the back of mind that stupid actions will take away the most cherished things in life. At that time it was OU football and he made sure that there was no way in hell I was going to see any of that game. Hard price to pay but it has paid off everyday since in keeping me down the right path.
I love our Sooners and I love kicking the crap out the T-sippers and living in Dallas. When we beat them, everyday I will wear some OU gab and give someone the business.
Take care my new family,
