So, I hate it when my Sooners lose.
I even hate that I hate it. After all, football is just a game, hardly life and death.
But if my University of Oklahoma Sooners have to lose to Baylor University for the first time ever, I’m glad some good came from it.
Robert Griffin III, otherwise known as RGIII, took home Baylor’s first-ever Heisman Trophy Saturday night after a terrific season, and I want to congratulate him. He had a whole heck of a lot to do with Baylor’s very decisive win over OU, and I’m glad the Heisman voters noticed that and everything else he did all season to help his team, hardly known as a football power house,Â win this year.
I like that his acceptance speech was filled with the word “we,” instead of “I.” I like that he appeared on David Letterman poking fun at himself. I like that he wears fun socks with his tuxedo.
Congrats to a RGIII, a deserving winner. I hope more good comes your way.
