    As a Texan (@fablereader was born in Texas), the only good thing to come out of Okie territory was Oklahoma!

    All the songs are worth singing. Repeatedly. It's the nostalgia thing.

    But they were originally the Seattle Supersonics.

    Mickey Mantle or Merle Haggard would get my vote.

    As a former Sonics fan, that's definitely fair :yep:

    And as a NYY fan, Mantle is a great choice, I approve :yep:

    I'm technically half Oklahoman does that mean I am only half good (is that why I was deselected*)

    I've just come back, and I've honestly no clue what's with all this Oklahoma business ...

    That and the fact you were good enough for an interview.

    I mentioned my Oklahoman relatives asking whether Oxford was a university...

    And thank you!

    Hahaha I'm glad I don't have an Okie accent. Or inherited the trailer trash talk of everything being a 'deal'. (One member of the trailer trash side of my family came down at 9am with a slushie cup full of beer......)

    I got that. After that, though, I started to get lost.

    Haha. I can only imagine what Okie's say about Texans. Heck, I probably know as most of the world probably says the same things about Texans.

    *There are plenty of times I want to hide in shame about my Texan roots. I have firmly refused to ever move back there now. Which is a shame as it was once a lovely place. I do miss the mom and pop donut shops though.

    Other than politics and some social stuff, most things I've heard about Texas are pretty positive :yep: Most Texans I've met are really nice and down to earth people and a lot of people I know end up in Rice, UTAustin, Texas A&M, Baylor, etc... for university.

    I just don't like Texas sports teams but that's just a personal preference

    They do say everything is bigger in Texas. Oklahoma is like Texas but smaller and shaped like a gun, which is a bit ironic if you think about it. xD

    But most Texans are lovely as wolfmoon said.
