This may look like a sports post, but I promise there is a bird connection.
My employer, the University of Oklahoma is known to be football-crazed and their other sports teams regularly fly under the radar, so I am doing my part to give credit where it is due.
I recently noticed that the OU Men's and Women's basketball teams are off to great seasons.
The Women's team, led by Courtney Paris (above) and her twin sister Ashely, is ranked #2 in the country and last night defeated #3 Baylor in Waco, Texas. The victory was especially sweet because former President "W" was in the crowd.
The Men's team is 20-1 and ranked #4. Their forward Blake Griffin (shooting) is the projected #1 draft pick this summer. They have already beaten rivals Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma State. If they hold of Kansas next month, they should get a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
