Greetings all! One of my favorite weekends of the year is upon us as it's the 110th meeting of my Oklahoma Sooners vs. the Texass Longhorns in the historic Cotton Bowl in Dallas before 93,000+ fans. Games like this are the reason that I don't take bookings during football season that often. A man's got to his his priorities and after 40 years on the road, I'd like to think that I've earned this opportunity. Nonetheless, it will be a fun time including dinner tonight at Pappas BBQ in Dallas with my friends from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.


Excited about our new, Ross Report podcast featuring ROH Wrestling's @KINGCorino that's available now for FREE at podcastone.com and iTunes plus the homepage of our website here.

Plus, he's an entertaining dude. Give it a listen and you will enjoy the show. Thanks for supporting our efforts as our podcast continues to grow weekly thanks to many of you.
