Convicted killer's last words? 'Boomer Sooner'

Many a true fan has loudly — and sometimes drunkenly — proclaimed that they will fight for and support their team until the last breath is ripped from their body.  One man last night grabbed that “stay true to your school” concept and spooned the hell out of it as he lay strapped to his highly-lethal and heavily-guarded deathbed.

Jeffrey Landrigan was scheduled to be executed Tuesday night for the 1990 armed robbery and strangulation of an Arizona man.  Landrigan had escaped from an Oklahoma prison in 1989, where he was already serving time for second-degree murder.

Hours after dining on a succulent on-the-house last meal of steak, fried okra, french fries, strawberry ice cream and a Dr. Pepper — the okra was to die for — the convicted killer, as is customary, was given the opportunity to say a few final words before departing this mortal coil via lethal injection.

Following the execution, a prison official gave an account as to what exactly it was Landrigan decided to utter as the game clock of life was ticking down to double zeros.

Somewhere, the whole of Sooner Nation is cringing in unison at the thought that their beloved fight song will now be a national headline/punchline for the next couple of days because some scumbag decided to remain a dyed-in-the-wool superfan until the last possible second.  Or they’ll be giving it a big, hearty thumbs down.  One of the two.

    What a tainted piece of news! The main thing wrong with most “causes” is the people who take them up.
    Oklahoma is a great school and doesn’t deserve this.

    I think it is cool. This guy made some terrible choices in his past. The real him is a Sooner fan and what somebody does on their death bed is honorable. He took it like a man and paid for his sins with his life. Sooner fans, like all fans, come in all different sizes and shapes. So, no matter what anyone takes away from you, even your life, you can still keep your love for your team. May God Bless him.

    I’d be more quick to throw stones if I weren’t pretty certain that the great state of Texas has executed more than a couple of my fellow Longhorns over the years.
    Of course, the way Texas goes through felons, there’s probably not many sports franchises who haven’t been represented on the gurney in Huntsville.

    This makes me feel a little better. Recently a picture of a horrible looking guy appreared in all the local papers and on local TV stations after he was arrested. He was wearing a filthy t-shirt and hat with “Auburn” a big as life on them. Several non-Auburn friends had to make comments about it. At least he hasn’t (yet) said “War Eagle” just before execution. LOL

    He: “Time to die.”
    She: “Go Gators!”

    I wonder if OJ had been found guilty if he would have said “go Trojans” with his last breath?

  10. MoTiger1 says: Oct 27, 2010 2:32 PM

    And the Executioner said, “M-I-Z-Z-O-U”

    “I wonder if OJ had been found guilty if he would have said “go Trojans” with his last breath?”
    O.J. was facing the death penalty, idiot!

    “I wonder if OJ had been found guilty if he would have said “go Trojans” with his last breath?”
    O.J. was NOT facing the death penalty, idiot!

    Ajarkox, your a complete idiot. Tell that to the family of the guy that he strangled to death. to bad he didn’t meet you first…

  14. DG0122 says: Oct 27, 2010 4:32 PM

    it’s funny when someone posting that someone else is an idiot makes 2 grammatical/spelling mistakes in a 25 word post

    The system of lethal injection and lying on an execution death bed will be recorded in the annals of historical barbarity and degeneracy if we do not face the Apocalypse before that and the Judgement of the Judge of Judges unto the ressurection in Him or everlasting perdition.
    I was nonetheless personally fascinated by the rhyming words of the convicted man passing away from the lethal compound by which the criminals of the USA are today put to death in the utmost of degradation in obvious violation of the US constitution which forbids “cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment”.
    Is that a sign that such utterances are a symptom of acute inorganic toxicosis?
    I believe that Justice follows far off somewhere at the end of the road behind all.
