You may find yourself stifling a chuckle as you approach Boone Pickins Stadium. Yes, it is a funny name, but the arena's namesake is no laughing matter. T. Boone Pickens, a Texas oilman and OK State alum, donated $165 million dollars to the school, which was used to renovate the crumbling old stadium. Yes the name is goofy, but the true Cowboy fans around you probably won't take kindly to you mocking the man who did so much for their school.
