Full disclosure: I’m still reeling from the beat down Oklahoma put on my Florida State Seminoles so I’ll attempt to bring you this story without added any of my opinion to. We’ll see how it goes.
At any rate, the Sooners are playing gracious hosts to the Air Force Academy this weekend. And as gracious hosts, Bob Stoops want his guests to feel at home. (Unless of course, the guest is the Florida State Seminoles.) So Stoops has asked Sooners fans to break from the norm and actually sing the National Anthem correctly.
NORMAN, OKLA. — Coach Bob Stoops is asking Oklahoma fans to break a new tradition and sing the proper words at the end of the national anthem when Air Force plays at Owen Field on Saturday.
Many fans have taken to shouting “home of the Sooners” instead of “home of the brave” at the conclusion of the song.
Stoops issued a challenge Tuesday that “hopefully with our people being here and Air Force coming here, we’ll surely be loud in singing ‘home of the brave’ and nothing else.”
Where was all this hospitality last week when you were dropping 47 points on my ‘Noles, Bob?
