NewsOK uses gallery, Facebook wall to celebrate Switzer’s 75th

We have put together some amazing photos galleries through the years here on NewsOK. We produce dozens of galleries each week in the state’s greatest continuous display of photo journalism.

But my new favorite gallery of all time was published today in conjunction with  Barry Switzer’s 75th birthday. It’s my favorite because of all the archived photos we pulled out of the files here at OPUBCO.

It’s also my favorite, because with each photo, we display a birthday wish from one of Barry’s well-wishers in the world.

That’s 75 years of Barry in 75 photos with 75 different personal messages.

And I’m sure that it’s no coincidence that I as publish this blog post, there were 75 Facebook birthday wishes from the general public on our special ‘Happy Birthday Coach Switzer‘ page.
