Getting geared up for Balloonfest this weekend

October 21, 2011

I will be at Balloonfest tonight in my creation, “The Egganator.” This is how it works.
I have built a 7x7-feet chicken coop cage, and I (and other third-grade Poteau Bandit League coaches) will stand inside. You will be able to purchase grade AA double-yolk eggs for $1 apiece or a dozen for $10, and you then throw the eggs at those standing inside “The Egganator.”
Now, I know some of you Oklahoma Sooner fans will love to tee off on me, since I picked Texas Tech to beat OU Saturday night at Owen Field in Norman. It's my “Upset Special of the Week.”
