Maybe next year ...

Well, my flock, it was not meant to be for the Sooners. Wendell and I are dealing with the loss in our own unique ways (above). But overall, it was a good season, and the Sooners should be proud of their accomplishments in winning their third straight Big 12 title.

In related news, I have instructed the Voodoo wing of Pug Life Ministries to construct a doll of the mutant Tim Tebow for possible use next year. It is not that I have anything against the Florida quarterback personally; I simply cannot bear to listen to another announcer fawn over him.

"Five minutes with Tim Tebow, and your life is forever
changed for the better."

But you two are so cute when you're bummed out!

In your honor, I promise to secretly loathe that Tebow dude.

Happy New Year, Skeezix.

Bless you, LemonySarah.

I think it was an easy decision for Tebow, Sandy. Despite what his worshippers in the announcing booth would have you believe, NFL teams are skeptical that his skills at quarterback will translate to the pro game. But perhaps, God willing, Tebow will be bitten by a tsetse fly during his next third-world mission trip and sleep through next season.

I was surprised to see the great tight end Jermaine Gresham, peace be upon him, return for another year, Lucy. Praise Allah! If the new offensive linemen are up to the task, the Sooners should be a title contender again next season.
