Here is Regular Jim Traber’s Tulsa Shock basketball card…

Famed physicist Stephen Hawking once stated that he believes life is created when matter is put in the right environmental conditions. It’s a logical, overly simple, scientific explanation to one of the universe’s great mysteries. It doesn’t, however, explain this:

Yes, that’s a painting of a Regular Jim Traber WBNA basketball card. In case you care, that sound you just heard was the universe collapsing and all matter becoming one within itself.

That’s just awesome. The painting was made by some guy named Drew Cooper. I’m not sure if he’s a serious artist or not, but he may just be the next van Gogh or Picasso. What he did was amazing. There are only a few people in the world who can take something as unwatchable as the WNBA and something as unlistenable as Regular Jim Traber and combine them into a tantalizingly beautiful artwork. If Drew were my son, that basketball card would be on my refrigerator right now.

Anyway, we have reached out to Drew to see if he can make other pieces of ironic Oklahoma pop art for us. Maybe something like Sally Kern dancing underneath a rainbow at the Copa or Steve Lackmeyer attacking downtown Oklahoma City like a monster in Rampage. Either one would work.


  1. Somewhere, Uncle Rico is shedding a tear . . . of absolute, unadulterated joy. Eastbound and Down, my ass.

  2. Let me tell you something, Mark. If someone were to put a gun to my head … or put a truth serum in me … I’d say this is just another attempt for one of you yardbirds out there to convince me to watch women’s basketball. As I’ve said on my show, a MILLION times, I don’t like women’s basketball, Mark, wouldn’t you agree? What? Bobby? Mark’s not here? Where’d he go? … (muffled sounds) Oh, ok … Here’s the deal. Bobby. Bobby. I’ve gotta give it up to myself. And let me tell you something … Listen … Listen … That pathetic little website just has Jimmy’s Egg all over their face. Hahaha … you people out there. Man, you people … LET’S GET TO DA FONES!

    • And hey, I played in the big leagues where you could spit and pull at your crotch all the time and I had a man crush on Cal Ripken, Jr. who is less manly than a lot of these wnba women so let’s take an Ozarka water break and when we come back after we run 15 minutes of car commercials we can talk about how I’m shaping the minds of America’s youth to be right wing fanatics.

    • Thanks, brother. Thank you. Very mutshhh. Always appreciate the listeners. Bobby? Do we have time to take one more call before we take an Ozarka water break? … you sure? By the way, Ladies and Gentlemen, I do NOT like women’s basketball. Ok … BACK TO THA FONES. You’re on the Sports Animal, go ahead, please.

        • ‘SUP … You mean like What .. Lake Erie? You people crack me up. Lake Erie used to be really close to where I played, once. Okay, maybe not, like REALLY close, but PRETTY close, for some of you Yardbirds out there. I USED to play out on the East Coast. Of course, most people in Oklahoma don’t know what that means. Thanks, brother, Thanks for the call. Bobby, let’s get to the Ozarka water break. COMIN UP NEXT, after your phone calls — Al and I will be back with the Total Dominance Hour. Stay tuned.

        • Well, brother, that’s a whole DIFF-RANT Story, which I haven’t MENTIONED in a while, RIGHT, Bobby? You people … You People … on that pathetic little website crack me up … hahaha! Listen … LISTEN, is Mark still on the air? I’m telling you … Bobby? Who’s on the phone now? Julie? OH? ok, it’s not Julie. Thanks for the call brother! BACK TO DA PHONES! You’re on the Sports Animal, go ahead please.
