I really have two reasons for this post, and will restate what many of us who visit here have said before: THANK YOU. To Matt, Jordan, Rich, Holakyle, OU JJ, the 1%ers, and everyone else who posts here, THANK YOU. I'm a lifelong Sooner fan stuck up here in Iowa, far from where the action takes place, and being able to come here and get REAL information, REAL insight, reasoned discussion, some decent humor, and confirmation of the latest rumors, recruiting, coaching changes, etc. is priceless. You guys and gals do a fantastic job maintaining and administrating this place and make the 6 days between games bearable and even enjoyable. Please keep up the great work!
Now, for the second reason: I want to bring my father to a game in Norman next year. He is close to 70 and has never seen a game live. I've only seen one(03 Big12 championship in KC) and would like to make a long weekend out of it. My questions are these: What game would you choose? What eateries in Norman are musts? Best place for tickets? Which section to sit in? As an RN I don't make great money, so this will be a once-in-a-great-while trip for me, and likely my father's ONLY game, so I'd like it to be memorable. I'm planning on this being his father's day gift next spring so maybe Tennessee? Give me your best info! Please and thanks again for all you guys do!
Oh! And if anyone would be interested in letting us tailgate with you all before the game I would love to meet some of you in person. I'll even spring for the beer!
