Oh, lord have mercy, yes, those 1985 unis were freaking gorgeous! And wearing the Sun Bowl all-white at home, genious!

And LD Brown's Cabbage Patch homage to Thurman also gets a helmet sticker.
As a P.S. I watched the Sun Bowl on a 4-inch portable black and white TV in the 8th floor pharmacy satellite at St. Anthony Hospital. I had asked for the day off so I could watch the game and was denied, so I snuck the TV in. If, by some chance, the director of pharmacy had stopped by I could have been fired, but it was worth taking that chance. Of course, the director wasn't about to stop by the 8th floor satellite on Christmas day.

So let me get this straight, you asked off "so you could watch the game" not because it was Christmas Day? I apologize for ever questioning your fandom. :oops:

Yes, that was the only reason I wanted off. In fact, I offered to work the late shift after the game was over. I was turned down, so I snuck a portable TV in even though that could have gotten me fired on the spot if I had gotten caught.

So I turned tix down first time in 27 years. Couldn’t keep them all together. Went to Okc Friday to check on family. Drove back to Dallas about midnight. Call came in from Tulsa. Free ticket. Next thing I know, stayed up the rest of the night taking care of chores and packing/partying. Got to dfw at 6am. Tulsa by 9:45am. Golf by 10 (9 holes) Stillwater by 1:30. Back to Tulsa casino by 8. Just barely got in and all I can say is that the defense gets the AttaBoy Award two weeks in a row.

The best part was the tweet by Tom the Punter.
Said he heard his name announced over the PA as he was taking the field for a punt and the roar of the crowd.

Then he looks up to see the pigeon on the big screen was the reason for the roar . . . . classic
