This story hits close to home for me, since my colleague in the next office is a die-hard University of Oklahoma fan who grew up just minutes from the Norman campus. To make matters worse, two of our church elders are loyal University of Texas fans who have been known to sport Longhorn apparel.
Well, here is the link, but if you click on it, don’t say I didn’t warn you!
