<span style="font-family: georgia;">When I was a kid, my family and I used to watch Oklahoma University football games and this was</span>
<br /> <span style="font-family: georgia;">during the Bud Wilkinson era. We lived in Davis Oklahoma at the edge of the beautiful Arbuckle Mountains..</span>
<br /> <span style="font-family: georgia;">Dad would come home from work just after lunch and climb up a ladder to the roof where our tv antenna was situated. He would turn the antenna toward the southwest and Wichita Falls Texas, channel seven, and we would watch a snowy tv screen, and listen to an Oklahoma City A M radio station that happened to be broadcasting the game that Saturday. This is how we watched the yearly version of the Red River Shoot Out which featured, and still features the University of Oklahoma versus the University of Texas in Dallas Texas during the State Fair and always on the second Saturday of October every year. Currently my beloved Sooners own a five game (5 years) winning streak over the Horns. In fact, Texas hasn't won this game since the last century. I have been a Sooner fan since I was knee-high to a jack rabbit, and I am pushing 60. Go Sooners.......</span>
