ESPN: Y&R's Josh Morrow talks Oklahoma Sooners
"The Sooners are my religion," said Morrow, who grew up in Oklahoma before heading to California to become an actor. "I've been back to watch the games several times. I'm into all their sports. I'm a tremendous fan."

Morrow, 37, lettered in five sports -- football, baseball, basketball, soccer and track -- in high school, and his passion was basketball. He played college ball at Moorpark College in California.

We also open with a quote much as we did in the first season. This one is about destiny. It’s about whether you have a hand in your own destiny or whether it’s all laid out for you. So this season is all about free will vs. fate.”

Twitter explains Thursday outage
"The cause of today’s outage came from within our data centers. Data centers are designed to be redundant: when one system fails (as everything does at one time or another), a parallel system takes over. What was noteworthy about today’s outage was the coincidental failure of two parallel systems at nearly the same time."
