Barry Switzer tweeted this photo Friday night apparently after having dinner with William Shatner in Tulsa.

How did the "Star Trek" legend wind up in Tulsa eating dinner with the former Oklahoma Sooners and Dallas Cowboys football coach? The Tulsa World reports that Shatner was in town for Wizard World, the city’s first pop culture convention.

But this wasn't the first time the Switzer/Shatner duo has graced social media with its presence. About seven months ago, Switzer responded to Shatner's Twitter-call for a large amount of wine for a charity event and offered to donate him some "Nice Cab" from Switzer Familiy Vineyards.

After interviewing Shatner a few months later about his Wizard World tours, Jimmie Tramel from the Tulsa World brought up Switzer's wine offer.

Switzer said the offer still stands, and the interaction just got better from there.

So there you go, everything you needed to know about Switzer and Shatner's Twitter friendship.
