Win a free Pride CD!

It’s too quiet around here! Football season starts in five weeks, and the 2006 Pride of Oklahoma arrives in less than three weeks (see previous item). It’s time to get revved up, so wake up and hear the Boomers.

You can literally wake up and hear Boomer Sooner with your very own copy of the 2005 Pride of Oklahoma CD. This 17-track piece of plastic, recorded in both stereo and hi-fi (oooooh!), contains all nine of Dr. Roland Barrett’s arrangements from the 2005 season:

    • El Toro Caliente
    • Tico Tico

    • Hush
    • Smoke on the Water
    • Respect

Plus eight full tracks of newly recorded rah-rahs and spirit songs!

  • Fanfare and Oklahoma
  • Fight for OKU
  • Boomer Sooner
  • Oklahoma Blues
  • OU Chant (both instrumental and a capella
  • 9 and Swing drum cadence
  • Stoops Stomp drum cadence

We’re giving away a few of these to the people who post the best stories about their first OU game as members of the Pride of Oklahoma. What was your story? Was it 1985, when the first performance was at Texas? Did something happen to you that seemed like disaster at the time but is funnier how, like uniform failure or losing your mouthpiece on the field? Was it boiling hot, or raining, or so windy your plumes wouldn’t stay on?

Whatever it is, post it here in reply to this message. Read How to post comments if you’ve never done it before, but it’s easy and free. We’ll choose the winners and contact them via E-mail to mail them their CDs. We could judge at any time, so share your stories today!
