Streak Ends at 111

Lincoln was six years old when the photo on the left was taken, the same month in which Bob Stoops coached his first game at Oklahoma. The little towhead went to that first home game—and to every one of them thereafter. Coach Stoops won 101 and lost 9.

Now Lincoln’s all grown up (above at right) and cheering for a coach with a familiar name. We had a great time at Lincoln Riley's first game earlier this month (photo below), extending the streak to 111.

Alas, all good things must come to an end. Third-year med students have to do rotations, and they're not optional. Happily, I have another six-year-old, as well as a 15-year-old, that my dad and I took to the game yesterday. We had lots of fun. Still, it just wasn't the same.
