Football caused some long nights for me this Labor Day Weekend

September 5, 2012

I got back from Durant at 2 a.m. Saturday after going to the Poteau football season opener.
Then, the next night, I was forced to stay up until 1:30 a.m. Sunday due to the closeness of the Oklahoma Sooners' football game at Texas-El Paso.
I was glad that Monday was a holiday, because I crashed and burned on the couch. I have not failed to watch an OU football on TV for the last five years, but I really can not get enthused on spending $39.95 to watch this Staurday's OU-Florida A&M game on pay-per-view. Leroy, you do still carry those game on the radio don’t you?
