life by the horns







More from Oklahoma City... last night we went to the Big XII Baseball Championship at Bricktown Ballpark in downtown OKC. Its a really great minor league ballpark in a district of brick warehouses that has been restored and has come alive with nightclubs, restaurants, and some canals with boats much like San Antonio's. We caught the Kansas Jayhawks against Mizzou, including a bench-clearing brawl between the two teams in the 3rd inning.

Today was more of the rodeo followed by dinner at our favorite restaurant in the stockyards, Cattlemen's. Normally we have a big group there and often get our favorite waitress, Bertie, a spunky older lady who always "takes care of her boys". We didn't see her tonight, but it was still as good as ever. Soon the hats will be back on as we head back to the country bar. And tomorrow is back to Dallas....though I'm sure we'll take the long way home.

So far, no tornadoes, another OKC rodeo tradition...

Props to KU for the win. And props to Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska for getting to host regionals. That's good for our conference.
