Way More than OK: Respect from San Antonio

During the playoffs, it’s easy (too easy) to get caught up in trash talk about teams, fans, facilities, and cities, so it’s nice to see a writer who looks deeper and enlightens others. As a life-long Okie, it’s even nicer to see the recognition that our great city gets for being a progressive leader in the realm of rebuilding and rebranding.

Truth is, Oklahoma City is farther down the road San Antonio seeks to travel. They’ve been busy transforming their downtown for a lot longer and, frankly, it shows. San Antonio has more to work with: We are bigger, more economically and culturally diverse, and have a richer history than the Sooners. But Oklahoma City has been working longer and they’ve done so with greater unity. Just about everyone in Oklahoma City seems to understand that a more vibrant downtown means a more vibrant city for all.
