That was awkward...

I woke up this morning to the sound of banging in the bathroom. Now, to get this, you've got to realize that two rooms share a bathroom. For the past week, I've been the only one in either room (Thanksgiving break). So I'm startled. I get up and walk to the door to find a note laying there. Seems that my suitemate's parents came back from Tulsa with him and didn't like the state of the bathroom. Now it looks just like a woman's bathroom. Gah.

Anyway, Bedlam was great. It's always fun to whoop OSU's "behindus", as my friend Nathan put it. And Sam Bradford was able to break the freshman touchdown record. So now we go on to play Mizzou in the championship game. As long as we play well and don't let our guard down, it won't be a problem.

Sad news for the day: I gained five pounds over Thanksgiving break - and I didn't even have a Thanksgiving dinner. Back on the bicycle tomorrow, if I can make it through the snow.

Oh - speaking of snow, the National Weather Service is predicting possible accumulation for the Norman area. Woo-hoo!

Black Friday...

... killed me.

I got up (NOT "woke up", as I never went to sleep) at 2:00 this morning and drove down to Toys R Us. They had a 30GB Zune mp3 player, regular price $199.99, on sale for $79.99. I was seventh in line; they had five in stock. You can see where this is going, right? So now my sleep schedule is all messed up, and I didn't even get what I wanted. And my ears are about to fall off. I'm going back to bed.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's that time of year again... the holiday where we all get together and give thanks for how blessed we are. So I'd just like to say that I'm thankful for my family, friends, and God. And not in that order, either.

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!!

So, I haven't posted in a couple of days. I'm finally done cursing the town of Lubbock, and the Red Raiders of Texas Tech. I do hope that Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray are all right, though. Anyway, on to my other favorite subject: weather! The last couple days have been gorgeous, and we (Norman, OK) are currently sitting on a record high temperature of 81°F (27°C). But tonight, the bottom's going to fall out. Lows will be dropping to the mid 40's tonight after only getting down to 61 last night. The high tomorrow? 50-ish. Then we settle into a pattern of highs in the 40's and lows around 30. That means that, with our slight chance of precipitation on Friday, we could get... something. Rain? Maybe. Snow? Maybe. Wintry mix? Maybe. Only time will tell. Providing your Blogger forecast for the OKC metro, I'm Travis. Peace out.

Well, it's 4 hours until game time, and according to this site, we're a 7 1/2 point favorite to beat Texas Tech. They also expect it to be a high-scoring game, somewhere around 65 points. So I guess that would make it 36-29 by the odds. But I don't play by the odds. 45-17, OU.

On a side note, I find this webcomic really cool.

Here are the current standings (11-15-07) in the BCS:

1. LSU
2. Oregon
3. Kansas
4. Oklahoma
5. Missouri
6. West Virginia

Oregon lost tonight (thank you Mike Stoops)! They will drop out of the top 5 on Sunday, which, assuming everyone else wins, makes the standings look like this:

1. LSU
2. Kansas
3. Oklahoma
4. Missouri
5. West Virginia

Let's assume that all of these teams win the regular season. The exception would be Kansas playing Missouri on the 24th. Let's say Kansas wins, keeping the top 3 the same. OU would meet Kansas in the Big 12 championship. If we win that game, we'd be going to New Orleans to face LSU in the national championship game. Not bad for a team that lost to Colorado, eh?

Oh yeah...

Something I forgot to warn you about - I'm a weather nut. In fact, that's kinda why I'm here at OU - best meteorology school in the U.S. and all that. So come spring, expect this to get pretty image-heavy with pictures of tornadoes, thunderstorms, etc.

I should be writing a script right now, but yeah... no class tomorrow! Happy 100th Oklahoma! *whistles Steve Azar's "I Don't Have To Be Me ('Till Monday)"*

At the Borgo Pass...

Goot evening. Allow me to velcome you. My name is Travis, and I am a freshman at ze University of Oklahoma. I am typing in a Transylvanian accent because I find it very fun to do. Seriously.

Seriously seriously, you may be wondering why I created this blog. I'll be providing updates about my life at OU, OU sports, OU campus changes, and pretty much anything OU-related. And anything else that catches my eye. I hope you have as much fun reading this blog as I have writing it!
