When I received an e-mail nearly two weeks ago about travel packages to the Big 12, I gave the message a quick glance and tossed it in my “maybe” folder. Maybe this would warrant a travel story, but it probably wouldn’t, I thought to myself.
I admit I don’t know much about football, but from what I was hearing, I didn’t think the Sooners would be making a trip to the championship.
Shame on me. As a Norman-native and a University of Oklahoma graduate, I should have never underestimated my alma mater.
I know I’m not the only fan who was a little nervous about the Sooners’ journey to the Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship. But our nerves are calm now, at least until the Sooners take the field Saturday to play against Missouri.
Now some fans are rushing around to make travel plans to San Antonio. Luckily I don’t need tickets or reservations for my couch.
What about you? Are you going to the game? Are you making some last minute plans?
