It rhymes nicely, but what does it mean?
Oklahoma is known as the Sooner State. Sooners was a nickname for settlers who arrived on the plains a bit sooner than they were supposed to. The Government hadn’t quite finished rounding up the natives and sticking them in reservations, but the Sooners sneaked in early so they’d have the pick of the best land. Cheats is a better word for them, but that doesn’t rhyme with Gooners and certainly doesn’t apply to this club. Head to Skinny Slim’s British pub in downtown Oklahoma City to meet up with the Sooner Gooners.
