After three years of Tuna, it's time for a Leach
Or just enjoy a traditional Japanese Otsukimi
For Dallas, for the city council, for now, this was good
Orange you glad this is Texas?
And 149 other things I swear I'll do next year
Sixty thousand fans soak up OU-Texas flavor. One lost writer gets soaked.
