I'm sure they meant nothing by it. Probably not even aware that OSU might be sensitive to such a display. They probably didn't even discuss it before the game that if someone hits a homer, perhaps they shouldn't "fly" from third to home because it would be viewed as poor taste on their part. Intentionally ? No. Insensitive ? perhaps. Dumb ? Of course, they're goons.

At worst, it was thoughtless. Not intentional, but you would think it might ring a bell with someone to back off the plane motion in Stillwater and do something different. I'm guessing it didn't even enter their minds. No big deal really. I think softballers celebrate every home run as a team at the plate. It's just what happens. I'm more offended that they wear read, call themselves Sooners, and reside in Norman.

On the plus side, I'm glad we're talking about Cowgirl softball. How about a discussion about the game?

We have got to figure some stuff out at the plate. We couldn't hit the ball last night for anything. Granted, their pitched was a beast. I wouldn't have stood in there to take one of those pitches.

Also, proud of Morgan for coming in when the game was out of hand and pitching pretty well for a sophomore.

Unless if it was a walk-off HR...what is the point of having the entire team waiting for her at the home plate?

She break a record or something?
I've seen a lot of baseball games - professional ones, at that - where the batter is greeted by their teammates after going yard...

OMG OMG OMG, she had her hands out like wings.

Seriously, all of you that are butthurt by it need to get a freaking life.

It was not even close in mocking a plane crash...it is "Zooming around the bases like an airplane."

OMG OMG OMG (is that enough effect?)

It wasn't mocking, that's pretty much what everyone has said...

The only thing some have said is that under the circumstances of the tragedy they should probably celebrate in some other way. And I would say the same if the circumstances were reversed.

No, they shouldn't celebrate in another way. They have been doing that celebration all season and the last few to be honest.

My thoughts on this subject:

If they are acting like they are planes then shouldn't they be landing safely instead of crashing into home base? Or are they just terrible pilots?

You're right they and you can choose to be disrespectful of others feelings and tragedy.

If you go to someones home after a tragedy do you do something (regardless of how long you've been doing it) do something that would invoke memories of that tragedy? I hope not because if you would and do you're an @$$#@!*

Most everyone here has taken the high road and the view that it was spur of the moment and wasn't meant to be mocking.

I dont see how you think any of that was any disrespect toward OSU at all. OU has been one of the more verbal and compassionate schools and athletic departments of the tragedy.

I think you are just making a mountain out of a mole hill, which is normally the case with you when it comes to anything OU.

Either you didn't read or understand what I said.

I'll make it bigger for you in case you are sight challenged.
