As I suddenly awake to my 4:45 am alarm.  It felt like my head just hit the pillow to go to sleep. Norman is cold in January but an early morning  January is on a different level.  As I walk through the bitter wind that passes clean through my pants, it’s a strong reminder, I am not in Florida anymore.  Four mornings a week the Oklahoma Men’s Gymnastics team prepares for the never ending pursuit of excellence.  This is what a team does to win 81 straight, the longest winning streak in gymnastics history.  But like they say here in Oklahoma, each year it’s different, each year it’s a different team out on the floor.
