Back to St. Louis on Friday...

...and then Ardmore, Oklahoma on Wednesday. Check this out:

"Ardmore, Indian Territory began with a plowed ditch for a Main Street in the summer of 1887 in Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation."

Also:

"[I]n 1915, ... a railroad car containing casing gas exploded, killing 45 people and destroying much of downtown, including areas rebuilt after the 1895 fire."

Sounds like a hopping town. Plus they have ridiculous Toughman competitions that air on Fox Sports.

Hey, don't be dissing on Ardmore. I used to go there as a kid! :) haha... no idea what it looks like today though, so you might be right!

I do love OK. I have never been to Ardmore, but love the drive from El Dorado to Stillwater.

"We don't smoke marijuana in Ardmore. We don't take our trips on LSD. We don't burn our draft cards down on main street...

We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy like the hippies out in San Francisco do...white lightning is still the biggest thrill of all...

I'm proud to be an Okie from Ardmore."

Brad, you are a former Okie...you should know all about it ;)
