Oklahoma Sports Columnist Enjoys Super Sundae

When you’ve been covering the sport of football for as long as Berry Tramel has, the challenge – and fun – is coming up with new ways of writing about the same old thing. This morning, post-Seattle Bowl I, he succeeds admirably by hanging the first portion of his column on a word coined in 1754 by British author Henry Walpole.

BerryTramelLogoTramel’s first career pigskin assignment, a Lexington-Elmore City high school football game, was completed in 1978 for the Norman Transcript when the writer was all of 17. Over the weekend in NYC, it wasn’t just about which seat he would get in the MetLife Stadium press boxes or where-and-how his wife would enjoy the game. It was also about doubling down on that aforementioned word – serendipity:

Our last Sunday was serendipitous because of Serendipity3, a restaurant on 60th Street between 2nd and 3rd avenues, in the Silk Stocking district. Serendipity3 is famous for its outrageous desserts and its role in the 2001 movie Serendipity, starring John Cusack. I sort of remember the film; I like John Cusack…

We shared a Cinnamon Fun Sundae, a combination of apple and cinnamon ice cream sundae. I think it was $16, which is absurd for any dessert, but it was terrific. Looked good enough that a New Yorker sitting two tables over felt compelled to ask us what it was.

We’re not sure if Tramel has had the opportunity to check out the great History page on Serendipity’s website. It’s right up his writing-style alley. Serendipity is located at 225 East 60th Street.
