It's a small world. Okie from Muskogee was sung by Merle Haggard. My wife's maiden name is Haggard. He was born in Oklahoma. Her family is originally from north of Dallas. Her brother looks like Merle. I am sure there is some familial connection there. Sadly, my only claim to fame.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
