Back to Burnt Orange

By Byron LaMasters

So very much better, now. My eyes were getting sore, and besides we're BOR-ers, not crimson and creamers - that just doesn't sound right on multiple levels.

Although, if you must see crimson, I still have the crimson template up - just in case I'm stupid enough to make a bet with an Oklahoman next year.

Very Democrat of you to make a promise then try to wiggle you way out when you break it! :P

Wiggle out of what? I said I'd go crimson and cream for three days. I changed the colors monday morning, and changed them back this morning. That's three days the way I counted it. How very Republican of you to use fuzzy math.

The original bet was for a week, hon.

The bet that I made with Keith was three days. Originally he offered to go burnt orange for a week if UT won, if I would go crimson for two days if OU won. I told him that I didn't want to appear like I wasn't confident, so it should be even - three days for each of us. That's what we decided on - I don't know what you're talking about.

Hello from SoonerLand. Byron gives a complete and accurate accounting, and it is worth noting that the CCR was in fact online for about four full days, and almost five days in name.

Now, if you want, we can make a bet on the presidential election . . . I'm actually undervoting here, but I'll take Bush and you guys take Kerry. If Bush wins, you guys ahve to have a picture made wearing "Bush is my Homeboy" T-shirts . . . if Kerry wins . . . what? Come up with something.

Now this is a bet 'd like to lose, so leave me with a little dignity.

PS -- sorry to take so long to write, but I teach two seminars on Thursday, and it took the students in Southern Politics a very long time to finish writing their midterm essays on the Texas redistricting. :)

Not sure about the next bet. I've taken a lot of flack for making a bet with a Sooner fan. And if I make a bet on the Presidential race it'll probably be with a real Republican. You're more of an independent.

Texas redistricting, huh? Perhaps next semester you can take your class on a field trip when the Democrats flee to Oklahoma when the Texas legislature re-re-redistricts in order to defeat Chet Edwards, Lloyd Doggett and whoever else they can't get rid of this time. Sounds surreal? Nothing in Texas politics surprised me anymore.

Byron, tell you what . . . if you see me walking towards the AG's office with Andy Taylor and your young solicitor general, you'll know for sure that it is time to flee again . . . otherwise you can rest easy. ;)

Anyone they don't get this time can't be beat with kryptonite. They'll just have to wait.

Can you get some stuff on Lampson for us to read?
