Nice array of asphalt pounders but I'd take the Starship. How 'bout them Sooners!

That's quite a collection! I think I need a few more years of higher education.... and a job that pays 4-5x more.

Also very nice photos, did you take those?

RpbrOUss,

What about 33-39? That one doesn't count? Y'all need to stop whining, makes you look like a bunch of sore LOSERS. Sorry for getting off subject.

Yellowboxster01,

I see your with the Cimarron Region PCA, War Whoop here. Are you serious about these being your old mans toys? If so, was the pic taken at Downtown Airpark?

I'm not whining, just stating a fact: 45-35. Nothing will ever change that. If Florida doesn't wear yall out you will have an asterick by any so-called championship. In Texas we don't whine about travesties, we do something about it:

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=ap-congress-bcs&prov=ap&type=lgns

Didn't intend to divert this thread, just sick to my stomach over what happened this year. I like the color of your boxster. It looks like the Imola red of the bimmers.

By the way, it is "losers" not "loosers" which is what you OU is the last 3 out 4 years.

One last and I'll stop;

Quote from the below link,

"Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, a member of Congress, planned to introduce legislation Wednesday that would force college football to adopt a playoff to determine the national champion."

Has the whining gone so far that lawmakers from Texas are willing to waist time on the hill introducing bills to change collage football? Is this what we Americans want them spending, what little time their at work, on? No wonder this country is going down the toilet, priorities.

This is why politicians are so irrelevant. There are no more important things to spend their time on?????????????????????

slightly off/on topic (depending on how you look at it), I feel like your level of education isn't going to help you get to the point where you can afford that. Some people just have that drive/x-factor that makes them successful.

I think its like those leadership clinics people go to. Not everyone can be a leader...who would follow?

First of all, dude, you seriously need a spell checker. Now about the Sooners...
70% of their team is from out of state, most of them from Texas. So your pride in OU is really for Texas. Thank you.

Nobody wants to see "Big Game Bob" choke in another Bowl Game. To wit:
2007: West Virginia 48 OU 28
2006: Boise State 43 OU 42 (Classic last second choke)
2004 USC 55 OU 19
2003 LSU 21 OU 14

Another thing about OU is that they are probably the most heavily fined, suspended, corrupt programs in the history of football. I believe they are still under some probationary terms now.

http://coachhal.com/blog2/index.php?blog=1&title=ou_probation&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

I believe in Karma, and "Big Bob" running up the scores at the end of the game after the game is decided will come back and bite him. Count on it.

One last thing, 45>35.

Well said. Some people with no college set out with passion and zeal and have whatever the X factor is to make them crazy kabillionaires. Some people with PhD's are working office slugs with no return on investment. I have worked with the latter.

Yes, I'm serious. The picture was taken at the Jones/Christiansen airport here in Tulsa. That's where he stores his Starship. Might I ad he created quite the commotion with all the noise coming from the hanger that day.

Well said. I personally know of a multi-millionaire that's a high school drop out. He's cool guy to talk to as well, very approachable unlike these dick CEOs from big corporate america.
