On May 2 my travels took me to Oklahoma City, the capitol of ”Sooner Country” for a visit to the KSBI-TV Studios, where I taped a segment for Oklahoma Live with hosts Abby Broyles and Drew Schroeder.
I left the Thunder Beach Rally in Panama City to fly into Oklahoma City and was able to see some of the city while I was there.
My day began with some photos by the Will Rogers statues at the airport. Known as “Oklahoma’s Favorite Son,” Will Rogers (November 4, 1879 – August 15, 1935) was an American cowboy, vaudeville performer, humorist, social commentator and motion picture actor. He was one of the world’s best-known celebrities in the 1920s and 1930s.
I then made the trip to The Oklahoma City National Memorial that honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were affected by the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. The memorial is located in downtown Oklahoma City on the former site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, which was destroyed in the 1995 bombing. I was able to reflect on the while thinking about the folks that were no longer with us because of the terrible act committed that day.
Then it was time to head over to the TV studio for the gig. I was greeted by the producers who led me into the “Gold Room” where I met a lemur who was also appearing on the show. The lemur took a liking to my head, where he posed for some photos!
Then, it was “Bobby, you’re up” and away I went on to do the segment.
It was great. Live TV is always the best. I was able to talk for a for a good long time about spring lawn care and maintenance as well as my U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association career and World’s Fastest Lawn Mower. They gave me a free reign to chat, and I was also able to talk about STA-BIL 360 Protection and Start Your Engines! Brands. I even gave Abby and Drew one of my Promo Cards and they promised to put them in their offices!
After the segment, it was back to the airport for my return trip to Panama City to finish the Thunder Beach Bike Rally with Leroy.
All in all, it was a great 24 hours in Oklahoma City!
Until next time…
