Storms delay game

by Mike Sherman Modified: April 18, 2013 at 4:47 pm •  Published: August 30, 2008

 A thunderstorm is approaching Owen Field.

And now we know how a game against a bad opponent can get even worse.

Halftime has just been extended 20 minutes to see what happens, and a lighting bolt just knocked out about half of the lights at Owen Field. A check of weather reports on the internet indicate that a storm with heavy rain, possible hail and winds to 50 mph is approaching Norman. Worse, the storm is moving at a whopping 5 mph.

That means it could get here and drench Owen Field.

What is already a difficult game to watch could get even worse.

Here’s a bet: the teams won’t come out of the locker rooms again. This game will be called and Oklahoma declared the winner. No one benefits by this game continuing.
