bed•lam (bed′ləm) – a place of noise and confusion
History of Bedlam
The first Bedlam game was held at Island Park in Guthrie, Oklahoma. It was a cold and very windy day with the temperatures well below the freezing mark. At one moment in the game when the Oklahoma A&M Aggies were punting, the wind carried the ball backwards behind the kicker. If the Oklahoma A&M squad recovered the ball it would be a touchback and if the University of Oklahoma squad recovered it, it would be a touchdown. The ball kept going backwards and rolled down a hill into the half-frozen creek. Since a touchdown was at stake, members of both teams dove into the icy waters to recover the ball. A member of the OU team came out with the ball and downed it for a touchdown. Thus was the beginning of Bedlam.
Bedlam Realty was founded in 2009.
Living in a state where rivalries are fierce and families are divided by the schools they love, they noticed that Bedlam was not just a once a year meeting of schools but a lifestyle.
We wanted a place where a “house divided” could carry on that experience with the purchase and sale of their home.
The new company was based on a different kind of philosophy: turn a fun rivalry into a bonding experience that would last a lifetime.
