OU Sooners - WEST

OU Sooners - WEST
(7, 8, & 9 year-olds)
*photo used with permission of Coach R.

With college football rapidly approaching, I thought this might add to our anticipation.



2005 Season:
Undefeated : 9 games
Points scored: 187
Points Allowed: 31
2 games: defensive shut-outs
Yards rushing: 1,542
Yards passing 78
Total yards : 1,620
Interceptions: 8 (2 returned for touchdowns)
QB sacks: 9


2006 Season:
Undefeated: 8 games
Points scored: 239
Points allowed: 13
6 games: defensive shut-outs
Yards rushing: 1,574
Yards passin 108
Total yards : 1682
Interceptions: 12 (5 returned for touchdowns)
QB sacks: 21

These young men are a breath of fresh air.
By that I mean, you will hear:
“Yes Sir” “Yes Ma’am” “Thank You” “Please” “Excuse Me” . . .
Kudos to them, their parents, and coaches for guiding them
in such a positive way.

“A man can be as great as he wants to be.
If you believe in yourself and have the courage,
the determination, the dedication, the competitive
drive. . . and if you are willing to sacrifice the little
things in life and pay the price for the things
worthwhile, it can be done.”
---Vince Lombardi

It's so wonderful to run into kids with manners. I was thinking that manners were beginning to be a thing of the past, but then I moved to Central Texas and was I ever surprised. Like you said, "yes Ma'm, thank you, please, etc.,". I don't think I'll ever leave this part of Texas!

I saw you over at Malinda's, btw! Hope you got hubby fed! :)

They are soooo cute!
My kids WILL say yes ma'am, sir and no ma'am, sir. We don't know it any other way here in the south.
(And ummmm....Go VOLS!)

KARMYN R: Nice young men, those OU Sooners/West...Fun to watch them play football.

GAYLE: Yes, hubby had a nice dinner (supper)...I enjoyed reading your GLOB(s) but can't figure out how to post...yet.

LAW: Actually, I considered using Control Freak for my log-in name, but Controlling-Freaky-Swamp-Witch was just too much to write, so I shortened it.
Go Sooners ! 09-06 7:00 p.m
OU vs. UAB

PAMELA: Yes, so nice to hear the "yes ma'am" coming from the young ones these days.

SILLY HILLY: Globber is driving me nuts...don't know what happened but I was trying to say, "Just that good 'ole Suthun hospitality is right.

Oh, dear. A sooner. That is what we say here in Nebraska whenever we have to play you guys.

I am um...enjoying your blog anyway! I am a die hard Cornhusker fan in Nebraska. So..trying to show my good manners here too.

But, if someone has to beat us (and I hope no one manages it this season), it is acceptable if it's the Sooners. At least they are a worthy opponent.....:)

Good luck to both of us....

I forgot to add that the little ones grow up so fast, you know? Before you know it, they will be Sooners.

GLOBBER aka: (Blogger) Why oh why do you antagonize me this way. I only hit the "Log in and Publish" once and you published me three times. Why can't I get you to cooperate with me and post my pictures, or put up a link, or publish a story on the correct day?
GLOBBER you are making me crazier.

We're sporting the crimson. And I think I'll post the coloring page soon that I did in honor of football season.

Go Sooners. Go Paul. =o)
