Truth Is Thursday!
Truth is this weekend is the big Texas-OU game, otherwise known as the Red River Shootout. Yes, I said Shootout. You may know it as the Red River Rivalry. In 2005, sponsors replaced shootout with rivalry because they didn't want people to think they condoned gun violence. Sigh. Now, while I appreciate the sentiment, we're talking about tradition and football, not guns. Ever since I was little, the Red River Shootout was about one thing: Texas and Oklahoma in a football-throwing showdown. Never, ever did I or anyone I know associate gun violence with the Red River Shootout. Sometimes, the political correct stuff can get a little out of hand, especially when it messes with tradition. So...
This weekend is the Red River Shootout, Red River Shootout, Red River Shootout. There, I feel better now.
Truth is I'm actually glad the Cowboys have a bye week. My gut needs a break this Sunday (apart from NASCAR, of course). It'll be in tilt come Saturday anyway.
Truth is I'm in love...with Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs cereal. And here I thought I'd never find love.
