Ahem...You missed Hambone's game of the week.

3:30pm ET televised on the world's worst sports channel of all time The Pac-12 network where 18th ranked The Arizona State University Sun Devils lead by ESPN Great Herm Edwards faces of against a bunch of Cougars from Pullman who appear to have a crazy pirate as a coach.

If anyone actually gets that channel, you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Hambone in the stands!

Hey hambone -

Was out in Phoenix for the Bruins game last weekend and spent most of Saturday in Tempe. There was some kind of bike festival where the streets were closed off and people were dressed up riding bikes around. Spent most of the day at Pedal Haus. The bar staff was dressed up too. Big fan of ASU now. Huge. Go Sun Devils!

One of my friends and his wife flew to Texas today to visit another couple, they met while on vacation a few years ago and have stayed in touch.

They told my friend and his wife they are going to a local hang out to watch the Longhorns/Sooners game on Saturday, they're huge Longhorn fans.

My friends wife is excited to hang out and have fun with her Texas friends, but she told me she wished she had some U/T gear to wear to Texas to get into the spirit; today when I saw them off at the airport, I gave her a game jersey to wear, she was so excited, she put it on and said her friends will be so happy to see her in it when she gets off the plane.

I told her "If you really want to impress them, when you see them after you get off the plane, tell them Boomer Sooner!!!"...……..

Because yeah, it was a Sooners game jersey, she's clueless about sports.

Because fuck the Longhorns.

You’re bragging about someone who is a dirt burglar friend too stupid to know what a OU Sucks jersey is. Is Baker Mayfield now married?

Nice! Glad you liked it. Mill Ave has changed so much since I was there. Half the places were retail before the Mall opened down the road and Amazon took over, so really cool to see them doing things like that. We take on all bandwagon fans though!

Umm...…...what?

She's not a "dirt burglar"/Sooners fan.

And if she was a Sooners fan, she'd know what a OU jersey looks like, would she not?

Lastly, what does Baker Mayfield have to do with any of this?

I can only assume you're nervous about tomorrow and are hitting the sauce early.

If not; holy smokes, God's speed to you.

Every player on Texas and OU was given an unsportsmanlike penalty before the game even starts, so there will be lots of ejections.

Idiotic refs.

All they had to do was not start a pregame fight and none of that happens. So yeah, there are idiots aplenty here, but I’m not sure the refs are the biggest.

If you can, rewind to the replay of the FG for Texas. The holder throws the bird right before the snap!

Feels like Texas should be down by 21, but just hanging around...
Yup, hanging around is right.

Last year the Sooners couldn't get off the field defensively, this year their shitting themselves offensively, two horrible red zone turnovers.

Texas is going to pull this game out, guaranteed.

It's to their credit, that would be two years in a row they were the better team.

Texas can't get anything working. Those stretch WR screens are getting gobbled up and their OL can't seem to block anyone.
