That was fun.
After three weeks and over 40,000 votes (it was way less but I’m too lazy to add them all up), Patrick and I decided to recap at the worst things this town has to offer.
Here’s our “2013 Worst of OKC” recap:
Worst News Station: KOKH FOX 25
Who knew less Speno would make anything worse? Apparently you all do not like this newscast, a whole bunch. That must mean you really hate things that are bad, so I can’t blame you. – Joel
Worst Anchorman: Stan Miller KWTV 9
In all fairness, Stan is better at reading a teleprompter than he is looking cool on a motorcycle. – Patrick
Worst Anchorwoman: KWTV 9
With four nominees each receiving over 20% of the vote, this was one of our closer categories. – Patrick
Worst Weatherperson: Aaron Tuttle
Ignore the fact that an emotional Facebook addict with flat abs won this category. How did 8% vote for Emily Sutton? They’re probably the same people who laugh during Bambi. – Patrick
Worst Sports Media Personality: Regular Jim Traber, WWLS The Sports Animal
This was the closest category. Regular Jim Traber edged his arch-enemy Jenni Carlson by 1% (30-votes). Please don’t tell Jim about this. I don’t want him chasing me down in his golf cart like I’m a Japanese pitcher and / or Mazzio’s Pizza delivery guy who forgot extra ranch. – Patrick
Worst Morning Radio Crew: Jack & Ron 98.9 KISS FM
They’ve won “The Morning Zoo” category in the Gazette’s “Best Of” and our “Worst Of” for two years in a row. With that being the case, you’d think they would be more entertaining. – Patrick
Worst Douchebag: Big Chief
So, apparently this guy’s fans hit up several street racing message boards encouraging people to vote. Wait, let me re-phrase that. Apparently Big Chief posing as a fan hit up several message boards encouraging people to vote. On this site. For worst douchebag. On behalf of everyone who wanted Christina Fallin to finish second, we salute you. – Patrick
Worst Person to Follow on Social Media: Abigail Ogle
She sure is a looker, that Abigail Ogle. Good thing I wrote a post allowing people to vote her the worst of something. At least we’ve gotten it out-of-the-way so any time we spend together won’t be as weird and awkward. I’m kidding. It’s gonna be stupid awkward. – Joel
Worst of OKC Politician: Sally Kern
Sally Kern wins again! Good for her. As a congratulations, I’d like to invite Sally to the Gospel Brunch at the Boom next Sunday. – Joel
Worst Suburban Police Force: Valley Brook
For my money, there’s no “worst” of any police force. At all. Love them all. All of them. So cool and nice. And awesome. Just wanted to share that with everyone. Love all the police, everywhere, always. – Joel
Worst Place to Be Seen: Hobie Point at Lake Hefner
We’d also like to invite Sally Kern to meet us here for a morning jog before we go to brunch. – Joel
Worst Public Enemy of the Thunder Cult: Patrick Beverley
As punishment for trying to kill Russell Westbrook as he was calling a timeout, Patrick Beverley should be forced to hangout with that kid from Thunderstruck. – Patrick
I guess if you didn’t care for -”Did you have a chance to check out our clearance area for couches? We’ve got great deals back there.” No. I’m writing. “Ok. Fair enough. I’ll go ahead be right here. Name is Carl!” Go to hell Carl. Anyway- “Hi! I’m Margaret!” Dammit. Dammit all. – Joel
Worst Thing About OKC: Derplahomans
You suck, Obama.
Worst Thing About The Lost Ogle: Nothing!
You guys sure do love us! A whole lot! That or I had to go to 5,278 different computers around town and vote. You decide which is more likely.
