Last night, Husband and I caught a few minutes of the SMU/Tulsa game on ESPN2. OK, so he actually saw a few minutes of the game. I just half-listened while trying to get comfy in the bed. That spawned this conversation.
Me: Why are they playing on a Tuesday night? That’s weird!
Husband: SMU would play on a Monday morning if they could get on national television.
Husband: Tulsa’s mascot is a Golden Hurricane. It cracks me up that a team from a land-locked state picked a hurricane, a tropical weather system, as its mascot.
Me: Really? A hurricane? It’s Oklahoma- where the wind comes rushing down the plains. Not where the wind comes blowing in off the coast.
Me: They should be like… the Tulsa Tumbleweeds.
Husband: Yeah, ‘cause those are intimidating. Tumbleweeds inspire fear.
Me: You don’t know! Those things could be very prickly!
Husband: The Tulsa Tornadoes would be good.
Me: Or the Tulsa Rabid Prairie Dogs. Now THAT’S scary!
Husband: (laughing) Yes, yes, it is.
