    If you haven't been to The Doak, prepare for disappointment. Fans are really nice but so lame. They fit in with State Penn & Colorado as the most clueless fans in the country.

    Gameday experience? Leaves a lot to be desired.

    I left hotel early in the morning to scope out parking places. Kid was setting up credit union parking lot across from stadium. I asked if that would be public parking. He replied, "Yes, sir, but it's really expensive. You may want to park at the convention center and ride the bus over; that's only a dollar" When I asked how much he was charging, he replied "$5". I handed him a $20 bill and asked if he'd hold me a spot. When he said he didn't have any change, I told him he had never been to Texas/OU, and there was no change expected. I got the place at the exit onto the street in front of Doak.

    And being asked for an extra $10 after the game if you linger too long at the Fair to watch the car.

    Parked the same place for OU, SMU, and the Cotton Bowl for years, then Joe sold the property. He introduced me to new owners who let me continue for 5-10 years. Then moved up Exposition a block.

    My biggest ***** is that damn train keeps you from going straight across Parry and into the Fair.

    ESPNUpdate is a radio station serving the Spartanburg-Greenville,SC area. Just one more throw it against the wall so if it sticks they can say they had it first.
    At least 30 years I watched Paul Newman interviewed by Larry King. He was asked why he did so few interviews. His reply was basically:
    Reporter: Do you beat your wife?
    Newman: No I don't beat my wife!
    Headline: Newman denies beating wife.
    You can spin damn near anything
