Cowboy Basketball

If there is one passion that Michael and I can share together it is our love for the Cowboys!  The Oklahoma State Cowboys that is!  We love Cowboy football, basketball, wrestling anything where the Cowboys (or Cowgirls) are playing we are watching! 

One of Michael's rep's gave us 2 tickets to the Cowboy's Basketball game vs. Texas Tech last night.  If you have never been to Gallagher IBA-Arena you should go.  It was voted the Best College Basketball Arena in the Nation!  Let me tell you it is definitely the rowdiest!  There is nothing better than hearing thousands of fans screaming ORANGE POWER!  or GO POKES GO POKES GO POKES GO!  or having students paint their bodies Orange and look like fools and camp outside the arena to be the first ones inside to get the perfect front row in the action seat. 

Last nights game was no exception!  I'll be the first to tell you that at half time I was very frustrated with the way we were playing and I was going to be very upset if we just drove over to Stillwater to watch our beloved team loose (lets be honest to be a Cowboy's fan you just have to learn how to deal with your team loosing) fans NEVER give up on our team and we will yell and scream until the last pass is thrown or the last shot is taken!  We were down at one point by almost 17 points and everything we threw up didn't go in.  I was starting to loose hope!  But I should've know better!  Because we are definitely a 2nd half team and things started pick up for us and our shots were going in and fouls were being called in our favor!  The crowd was on their feet screaming and yelling the whole 2nd half!  It gives me the chills!  

Here is a picture of the final score!

That's OSU 81-Tech 80! GO POKES!!

I'm happy to report that our trek to Stillwater was a very worthwhile trip!!

As the legendary Eddie Sutton says:
Always have faith in God, Yourself & the Cowboys!
