    This was attempted in the mid-90s. It's awful long. If brought back, it should be done half-and-half.

    I'm in favor of bringing vuvuzelas into the stadium.

    As fun as it is to try to be different from the Class before you and I think it's honorable to recall and try to honor an old yell....I also think this is more effective considering what Bob Stoops has built on since coming to OU....

    Just saying....

    I still think that sounds like a part of the female anatomy.

    True, but first, every stadium everywhere uses that. Or did 15 years ago.

    And second, the only reason that happened at all is because it was end of the 2nd quarter, which means he Pride had already bailed out of the stands for halftime. They don't play tunes over the PA while the Pride is ready to play.

    That's a pretty cool screencap of Harold Lloyd from The Freshman. You can't even see the prosthesis on his right hand.

    Yes, I'm a silent movie geek. :O

    Yeah, but he cut off the part of the photo showing Jobyna Ralston's ankles.

    ankles or cankles?

    I don't think anyone ever accused Jobyna of having cankles. She was kinda skinny like a twig.

    Mississippi Sooner, my brother recommended that we show The Freshman to our oldest son before he headed off to college. He loved it.

    Harold Lloyd was an amazing talent. He could pull off all those amazing stunts with, in effect, only a hand and a half. Also, he, like Chaplin, was one of the fortunate few to retain the rights to most of his movies. That's why there are still so many good copies of the movies those two men made.

    By speaking to the people who are familiar with it, my estimation is that you would've had to have been attending games in the early-to-mid 60's (or before) to remember it. That would've been right around the time you became a fan, right?
