One unexpected pleasure of moving to Oklahoma has been my four-day road trip through the Southeast. I spent Sunday night in Harrisburg, Penn. — home of such teams as the Stampede of the Southern Indoor Football League.
Then I spent a night in Knoxville, Tennessee, home of both the Volunteers and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.
And while some people would arrive in Memphis and fall back on the city’s incredible musical history, I chose to spend my evening at AutoZone Park watching the Redbirds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cardinals.
Easy access to my red Wesleyan Cardinals sweatshirt in an otherwise jam-packed car had nothing to do with it. I swear.
