Execute ‘Em: ‘Boomer Sooner’ One Final Time For Arizona Killer, Then Nappy Time
Arizona executed a convicted killer late last night.
Yeah, nothing new here. Just getting rid of another killer weighing on the legal system.
But the real fun came when Jeffrey Landrigan gave his last words.
The execution was carried out at 10:26 p.m. (12:26 a.m. ET), said Barrett Marson, a spokesman for the Arizona Department of Corrections.
“I’d like to say ‘thank you’ to my family for being here and all of my friends,” were Landrigan’s final words, according to Marson. He concluded with “Boomer Sooner,” a cheer often used by University of Oklahoma fans.
Landrigan’s last meal consisted of steak, fried okra, french fries, strawberry ice cream and a Dr. Pepper, Marson said.
We continue to say it. Every day in this business is different. This is our first Execute ‘Em where a college cheer was used just before the guy went nappy time.
Surely this will be used against OU fans at a GameDay yet to come.
