Over the years, I've enjoyed seeing the mulleted, three -toothed sooner fans and using the usual terms to describe them. I just never considered the fact that our success would foster support from those same awesome, grassroots, Okies. (Yes, they look different to me now. Amazing how our 'marks' make a person look so much more intelligent.) I guess if I'd ever thought about it much, I would have known it would follow the natural sports evolution of success being a fan magnet, but I just hadn't considered it. And all of a sudden I'm seeing the Wally isles full of proud, orange wearing, salt of the earth, loyal fans. So here's to welcoming all those lovely folks back from the dark side!
