An Article about where Oklahoma actually is, piqued my interest recently. So many believe Oklahoma is in the south… Others, the southwest… Even more believe it is part of the midwest. For the most part, I don’t think it is any of these exactly, but a mixture and different in it’s own way.
For the longest time, Oklahoma was considered No Man’s Land, which I believe was a misnomer, considering this is where a huge population of Native Americans lived. Being Native American myself, I have a different kind of pride being from Oklahoma because we have a different history. It is a history that keeps us separate from the deep South, unlike some of our accents. Our history separates us from all of the states, rich with Native American culture.
I believe that baseball in Oklahoma is a little under-rated. Can you blame them, though? They don’t have a team like the Rangers to cheer for. It wasn’t until recently that Oklahoma got themselves a professional basketball team, and the Thunder’s popularity I would say is almost unrivaled. So, if you will, pick a baseball team and get ready for another season of “America’s favorite pastime” that’s sure to excite.
We aren’t quite as fortunate as the people of New York City, who had both of their teams playing at home yesterday for the first time since 1956. I can’t even begin to imagine the excitement, everyone boarding the subway to head to Queens or to Brooklyn to watch the opening day games. I could have hoped to see a more impressive game played by the Yankees, but the Mets did not disappoint.
If it weren’t for the rain tonight, I hope you would be cheering for the Cowboy Baseball team in a non-conference Bedlam game, too.
