God certainly hates the SF Bay Area, with the Giants, Warriors, 49ers, Raiders and good colleges (UC and Stanford) with generally crappy teams with “promise.”

Or, maybe God feels with everything else we’ve got going on, he should give the good teams to the flyover.  Boomer Sooners, Go Tide!  We’ll be at eating and drinking at a bayside outdoor patio rueing the demise of our professional franchises.

This thread I started a while back talks about this in more detail. To find out what the “flyovers” have to offer as opposed to the “blue states”, check this out:

I live in Oklahoma, the reddest state of them all (every single county was bright red for Mr. McCain). The sign on the border should read “Welcome to Oklahoma; I know it sucks, but hey, at least we have the Sooners!”

Joe Cool jinxed Frisco when he spent his last 2 years in KC.

That’s what keeps TX from falling into Mexico. When W comes back, <shudder> You’ll be able smell us from Edmond.

Beam, it sounds like you’ve heard the age-old joke: “Why do all the trees in Texas lean to the north? Because OK sucks”. Or the alternate joke that all your trees lean to the south because OK blows.

Edmond, BTW, is the only place in the entire OKC metro area that actually showed “Religulous” in theater (Quail Springs Mall). The rest of the area either doesn’t know that such a documentary exists, or chooses to pretend that it doesn’t.

Proof that god hates OKC: tornados, bombs, and post offices.

We don’t want to fall into the lethargy of England remembering the glory of a long gone empire.

The only thing I know about OK is what I see at 90 mph on I40 every other year or so.  Tulsa may be a garden spot, for all I know.

I-40 from east to west: Arkansas border, wheat fields, Carrie Underwood’s hometown, big lake, wheat fields, corn fields, Troy Aikman’s hometown, wheat fields, some cows, corn fields, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma City, Yukon (Garth Brooks’ hometown), wheat fields, cows, corn fields, cows, wheat fields…..Texas panhandle.

Occasionally, around April or May, you might see a stray tornado with some shotguns, Bibles, and Sooner hats flying around in it.

Don’t worry about the sheep here, Beam. I’ve learned that “Baaaaa” means NO!
