One Week Indoctrination - Session 1 - Sooner and Boomer Sooner

This Saturday I am headed to Dallas to participate in the OU/Texas weekend, although I won't be in the game itself. I am taking a small army of friends with me, most of whom are fairly ignorant of the enormity of what the Red River Shootout is all about. So, in an effort to educate, I am developing a one week short course on Sooner Life and OU/Texas. I am doing them as emails, but figured I would post here as well.

Session 1 - Sooner and Boomer Sooner



First, but probably not most importantly, we should get the "what is a Sooner?" question out of the way.

Of course, next is the fight song, "Boomer Sooner",

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boomer_Sooner

The article has a link to the music, but I have attached a better quality version for your listening pleasure. Play it often, and play it LOUD. Singing the words is not always necessary, but it is appropriate to clap repeatedly, with a slight pause between the verses. The opening "GO!"s may also be accompanied by an index finger thrust repeatedly into the air.

Study and practice these items, and we will move onto session 2 (Sooner symbology) tomorrow.
