I’m amazed how much athletes use Twitter. I don’t follow any OU or OSU athletes, but in pulling screen grabs for this video I noticed an almost non-stop stream of virtual conversation from Kenny Stills and the athletes he was tweeting with.
I also pulled an April video the NewsOK TV crew show of Justin Blackmon interviewing Ryan Broyles. It’s way more compelling that listening to me read tweets because you learn a little more about the personalities of those two very talented receivers. It’s at the end of the above video.
Videographer Tim Money, he’s a pro. The above video is from Tim shooting OSU players who want to be pros.
Good work by The Oklahoman’s high school football beat writer Bob Przybylo. Captured a memorable night in Chickasha as the town honored one of its own.
Thousands of people watched as Texas Stadium was imploded around 7 am today. Some trivia for you (also known as worthless info): 2,715 pounds of dynamite was used, demolition of Texas Stadium cost about $6 million, the Dallas Cowboys won five Super Bowls with Texas Stadium as its home field.
I saw one game there: Emmitt Smith’s final home game as a Cowboy, a brutally cold Saturday night game. Michael Jordan was in town two nights later with the Wizards. A decent weekend of superstars past their prime.
The longtime home of the Dallas Cowboys — known for the giant hole in its roof, “so God can watch his team,” according to local lore — came tumbling down early Sunday in a planned demolition.
Fireworks shot off above the building for several minutes, then hundreds of fans counted down as 11-year-old Casey Rogers of nearby Terrell, the winner of an essay contest, pushed a button triggering the implosion. More than a ton of dynamite dropped the west side of the building toward the north, the east die toward the south and the roof right on top.
Below (after the jump) are YouTube videos of the implosion. More YouTube videos can be found here. Lots of people shot video this morning.
OSU didn’t disappoint by blasting Grambling State on the field. The Grambling State band didn’t disappoint either.
Something new for this football season, NewsOK Video is shooting The Oklahoman’s reporters before each OU and OSU game for a video we call “PreGame Snap.”
The idea is to post this video, send out an email, text alert and Twitter alert along with a link to our mobile site. Fans at the game can watch and listen to last minute and any breaking news updates from our sports guys.
