“Paddle People” Publicly Perverse

For those of you who don’t follow college football, there is much more that goes on than just the game itself. Especially when some fans want to insert themselves into the game and fantasize that they actually add to the atmosphere and/or the outcome of the contest.

In Oklahoma, the annual season ending game between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, generally referred to as “Bedlam,” is always a hotly contested and competitive game. The favored team doesn’t always win, nor the home team. In this year’s game, the emotions were flamed even higher as both teams were highly ranked in a “Winner Takes All” game, the winner would be the conference champion and a chance to play in the national playoff.

At OKStates T. Boone Pickens stadium, the walls to the field area are lined with a padded material. OKSt. fans known as “Paddle People” line the front row and beat on the pads with flat, padded paddles. They have gotten more bizarre by the year since they first began.

This past Saturday night, they nearly exceeded audience comprehension.

Let the fun begin:

Olympic Skiers And The Politics Of “Gore-Bull” Warming

It seems one hundred and five of the winter Olympians have signed a petition demanding climate action, due to the warm climate and melting snow in the Palm Tree lined city of Sochi, Russia.

Anthony Watts has the full story at Watts Up With That.

After reading Mr. Watts article and reviewed all his data, I decided to delve deeper into what is really going on with the weather in Sochi.  I don’t watch the Olympics precisely because they became so politicized and don’t care for winter sports anyway.  Snow and ice are the bane of my existence.

It didn’t take me long to discover what is actually causing so many snow skiers to fall down.  It isn’t “Gore-Bull” warming and there is video proof of what is causing this phenomenon.

It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s …

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Case Of Ward “Chutch” Churchill

Not a big deal, really, just one of those stories with the sound of the second shoe dropping.

In a joint statement, CU President Bruce Benson and Boulder campus Chancellor Phil DiStefano said they were pleased with the decision and now consider the matter to be settled.

Any reasonable person knew he was done at CU and would never regain his tenured position at that institution again, not after about 20 other academics ratted him out as a total fraud.

Still, we had some good old times with “Chutch” over at the place that shall not be named, where many of us met as blog buddies.

So in celebration of the fraud Churchill’s just firing being upheld by the courts, I take us back, waaay back to 4 Feb 2005, when Iowahawk introduced us to Chutch.

EPISODE 106: BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED EGO

SONG: “Colorado Kung-Fu Justice Man”
Words & Music by Tommy Terry and Danny Boycey
Performed by Jan-Peter Bronston
From the ABC-Polyglam LP, “Arapazowee Nation”

In the aspen covered Rockies there’s a legend often told
Of a tenured native shaman with a cougar, grey and gold
He had two fists of fury and a Master of Arts Degree
From accredited Sangamon State University

CHORUS
He was a Colorado kung fu justice man,
Fighting fascist critics across the campus land.
Office hours: Monday Wednesday Friday 9 to 10
Colo-RADO (kung fu)
Colo-RADO (kung fu)

With red hair in his hat and Arapazowee soul
Speaking truth to power was his only goal
Writing grants and lectures, a simple mountain life
A Bultaco for his horse and a cougar for his wife

Adios, Chief Fakeyourassoff, we hardly knew you…and we are truly thankful for that.

FINALLY! NCAA Football Is Here!

It has been a long eight months since the BCS Championship game was played.  I (we?) have been counting down the days for the past three months, anxiously awaiting another season.

The alleged experts have all opined as to who will win it all this year and they have all designated who they believe will be competing for the Heisman, which of course means less than nothing to the final results.

I’m tired of all the talk-talk and opinions, I’m ready to see what the young men do on the field.  I’m ready to see what the experienced players are going to do, as well as what the freshmen phenoms are capable of.

We all have our favorite teams, whether it is from a life time attachment or due to which school we attended.  In my case it is due to the former, growing up admiring the OU Sooners as a child in the midst of their record 47 game winning streak which no one has come close to matching.  Here are some facts about the success OU football has had in its storied history.

As fate would have it, I would attend UT-Austin, the biggest rival of OU.

So in honor of this rivalry and the fact that OU lives rent free in ‘Smack’ Brown’s head, I bring you an ad for the Longhorn Network.(*Contact your local cable/satellite provider and tell them you DO NOT want the LHN*)

Let the games begin!!
