    I agree with you 100%. I don't know why she won't. The only reason she's given me is that she is not a low life like I am and that she does not live in a double wide.

    I'm guessing that defending racism on a public forum wouldnt go over real well for her so she chooses to pm me on facebook.

    Herk,
    You don't deserve this crap on Facebook. A forum like this one is a much better spot. That said, calling people Klan (or Nazi or Commie, etc.) probably isn't going to make new friends, either. You should have left it with your comments about the "boy" remark. Everybody got the drift. Okay, maybe not EVERYBODY, but everyone who's not had their head in bucket the last 50 years. As far as accents go, characterizing someone by their accent is dangerous and counterproductive. In my current East Coast town, few can differentiate a Rocky Mountain accent from a Midwestern or Southern accent.

    Also, although you did exempt most Sooner fans, trashing a team's fan base seems to be a very popular sport these days. Sound familiar? What goes around comes around. I certainly have my prejudices about the fans of certain teams, but airing them here or any board, won't improve those fans. I can tell you for a fact that whatever garbage they've said about us hasn't improved me one bit.

    When I said Klan it was tongue firmly in cheek. As far as accents go I had a strong norwegian one, ya know, and it comes back every time I go up nort for da lutefisk and lefse. Ufda, Yoces' is probably even just a little worse dan mine is ya know. It was just funny how this guy was cheering for Caldwell. I wasnt characterizing him or anyone by their accents, just by the use of the term "boy" when cheering against Burroughs.

    I don't expect fans from any team to improve just because I said they were horrible. In fact I probably wouldnt have even brought it up had a couple of them not been so blatantly prejudice.

    Anyways, like I said earlier. If she's got more to say to me she can create an account and come aboard and confront me here and talk a little wrestling if she wants to. I'd gladly talk about the Sooners and the direction of their program with her if she wants to. I'll leave it at that.

    They tell me my accent is rural Iowan. Not even city Midwestern. But also not Scandahoovian (we couldn't tell the difference between Norwegian, Swedish or Finnish, but I digress..) My accent comes back in 30 seconds after I hit the CR airport. At any rate, its sometimes hard to tell when someone's tongue is in their cheek, but please don't get me wrong. You had reason to be offended, and perhaps now they'll behave better next time.

    She's quit sending me messages. I was hoping she would start posting here. I guess she's over it. Maybe we'll run into each other in St. Louis next year. Nice talking to you lady.

    For the record, I didn't hear any of the "boy" comments (that WOULD have put me over the edge), but I heard the clown screaming at the top of his lungs about Burroughs.

    Just the look of rage that the goof had in his face showed that it went a little deeper than just (a) not being a Nebraska fan and (b) not being a Burroughs fan. Putting that observation together with your hearing that term, I think we can come to a reasonable conclusion.
