The first 2,000 fans at the Mizzou game 1/16 get one of the Wayman patches.
If you get a chance, check out the latest SI. They have a full-page pic of Wayman as well as an obit (for the end of the decade, they featured some of the players who passed away during the Aughts). It is this one right here:
I should warn you, there is also a certain feature about a certain incident that happened after a certain bowl game (see the top of the cover)
Check that, the marketing department pulled a switcheroo. Now "Remembering Wayman Tisdale" day will be the Texas game on 2/6.
Always more to say about Wayman, isn't there?
The OU Wayman Tisdale Specialty Health Center broke ground in north Tulsa yesterday.
Tisdale's wife Regina is in the middle. More pics if you follow the link. What a way to honor Wayman
Here's the patch they're giving out at the Texas game:
In all honesty, I never followed OU basketball nearly as much as I follow the football program. But I knew of Wayman when I lived in Oklahoma, and heard that he was an accomplished jazz musician.
Now I live in California, and a few years ago, had tickets to a concert - Wayman wasn't the headliner, but played first. I went back to the merch table, bought one of his CDs and asked him to sign it.
It was the first and only time I ever met him. But I remember having a great conversation about living in Oklahoma, and thinking about what a great guy he was. So friendly to all his fans, and so appreciative.
Really glad to see them honor him during today's game - a really fitting way to do it - against OU's biggest rival, and coming out with a win.
I'm sure Wayman is looking down from heaven and is smiling on all this today.
It turns out that Wayman has a little bit more to share:
New funk album
Wayman Tisdale clinic one step closer to opening
I hope his memory is served well. From my time at OU as an undergraduate, Wayman Tisdale made me realize that being a great human is more rewarding than personal gain.
I watched The Wayman Tisdale Story on NBA.TV last night. I've never listened to Toby's song about him, because I was sure I couldn't get through it, so at the end of the program they play it and I kept it on.
I'm still tearing up.
Other than Meyer/Tebow, I can't think of another Coach/Player relationship so strong and so identifiable with each other than Tisdale/Tubbs. I am always grateful I got to experience it/him.
The Wayman Tisdale Story:
Wayman's mom passed away recently. She was 82. More info here.
I saw him several times out and about in Tulsa.
The best may have been at the Tulsa State Fair in college.
Believe it ir not, I was a baller back in the day and I'm a lefty, I'm shooting the free throw game at the fair when I look next to me and it's Wayman, swishing one with his dayghter on his shoulders!
OU needs another ambassador like Wayman.
No disagreement here, but I'm curious as to where this is coming from.
