If Serge Ibaka seems kind of cocky, you really can’t blame him. He’s an elite athlete, multi-millionaire and is dating a hot, chart-topping singer. Plus, there’s, uhm, this:
The girl pictured with Russell Westbrook is his long time girlfriend Nina Earl. She’s a former basketball player at UCLA, (I think) a medical student, and from all accounts, a very nice girl.
I’m posting that photo because gossip blogger Jacky Jasper from the website “Diary of a Hollywood Street King” recently outed Russell Westbrook as bi-sexual. The source of Jacky’s information was the always reliable “anonymous” source:
In May of 2008, we ran a silly feature called “Hot Girl A Day In the Month a May.” It was a play off The Sports Animal’s old “Driver a Day in the Month of May” gimmick and gave us an excuse to post pictures of hot chicks from Oklahoma. The 4th girl we featured was Mustang-native and former swimsuit model Amanda Marcum. Here’s what we wrote:
Honestly, we don’t know too much about Amanda. We know she is from Mustang and modeled for Stuff. Also, I swear that I hooked up with her one night at the Silver Stallion. But as I said, we don’t know too much about her.
Thanks to the magic of the Internet, we now probably know way too much about Amanda. Earlier this week, Yahoo revealed to the masses that she is the wife of this guy:
That dude is Andy Enfield. He’s an NCAA basketball record holder, accomplished businessman and an inspiration to gap-toothed men everywhere. He’s also the head men’s basketball coach at Florida Gulf Coast University. They play Georgetown on Friday in the NCAA Tournament.
Andy Enfield is a young basketball coach with sterling credentials, having worked under Mike Dunleavy, Rick Pitino and Leonard Hamilton. He’s guided the once-unknown Florida Gulf Coast University to a berth in the NCAA tournament, a first-round draw against Georgetown…
Meet Amanda Marcum Enfield, wife of Enfield and legit supermodel. You can bet she’ll be all over Friday’s telecast when GCSU plays, Katherine Webb-style. In addition to that Maxim cover there at right, she’s been on the covers of Elle and Vogue, and in ads for Victoria’s Secret and more. She and Enfield met when he gave her a ride from New York City to Boston to watch the Oklahoma State Cowboys in — synchronicity alert — the 2003 NCAA Tournament. The ride was apparently pleasant enough that the two were engaged six months later.
Since the Yahoo story broke, Amanda’s hotness has been picked up by just about every major sports blog and BuzzFeed’esque dump site out there. I guess you can add us to the list. I did some research to see what else we could find out about Amanda. First of all, here are some current pics we acquired via the Ogle Mole Network:
Even though the new TV package has kind of ruined it, there’s almost nothing better than the first day of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. I’d rank it just behind Christmas, the first OU football home game and Gary England Day as one of my favorite times of the year.
In fact, back when I had a ‘real’ job, my friends and I would always take off from work and go to a sports bar. My favorite place was the Varsity (RIP) on 63rd. We’d arrive at 10:00am, camp at out in the TV pit area, and immediately get lost in a 12 hour binge of beer, bar food and basketball. One of my last memories from the place was Eric Maynor hitting a game winner against Duke (above) and some girl, I think my wife, picking me up and driving me home. The following day, a Friday, a friend drove me back to the Varsity to pick up my car. We decided to go in for “one” beer. Before I knew it, some girl, I think my wife, was once again picking me up and taking me home. Not to sound like Uncle Rico or anything, but those were the days. Not the wife part, but the beer and the Varsity. That place was awesome.
Anyway, I apologize for the stroll down drunken memory lane. The reason I bring that up is some urologist from Tahlequah is offering a special March Madness promotion. He’s giving away a free pizza, bottle of soda, and bag of frozen peas if you get a vasectomy in March.
Here’s a pic of the newspaper ad. It was sent to me by a Mole via Facebook:
Mary Fallin delivered a speech at Harvard last night. Yes, THE Harvard University. Not Harvard on May or that road in Tulsa. The prestigious American university that’s produced eight presidents, 21 US supreme court justices and the Winklevoss twins.
The speech wasn’t publicized. In fact, the local media didn’t report it until yesterday afternoon. From The Tulsa World via the AP:
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is heading to Boston to deliver the keynote address at Harvard University’s conference on education and workforce development.
Fallin will be among the speakers Monday during the conference titled “Creating Pathways to Prosperity.”
The governor says she plans to focus on recent education reforms in Oklahoma and the strength of the state’s career and technology centers.
The Creating Pathways to Prosperity conference features national business, government and education leaders.
At first I was going to question why we’re just now hearing about this, but I guess you can’t blame the Governor’s handlers for keeping the trip secret. For one, Mary Fallin takes a lot of flack for her travel schedule. And two, they probably find the entire idea to be just as ridiculous and silly as we do. Mary Fallin and Harvard go together like cats and dogs, oil and vinegar, and KFOR and award winning journalism. To make it even better, she apparently talked about the “strengths” of Oklahoma’s “career and technology centers.” Basically, our Governor flew to Harvard to promote vo-techs (and probably tour Fenway Park and other touristy things). That’s very fitting and very sad.
Also, when did Mary Fallin become a national expert on “Creating Pathways to Prosperity?” Her biggest accomplishment since becoming Governor is blocking healthcare funding for the poor. Hell, she hasn’t even been able to lower state income taxes for the rich. It seems like the only thing Mary Fallin knows about prosperity is marrying an eccentric dentist and/or wealthy workmans comp attorney. Also, can she share with us some of the education reforms that have worked out so well? Don’t we rank in the bottom half of everything? I’d like to hear about them.
Anyway, I tried to dig up more information about her speech but my Google search came up dry. I did, however, stumble across this list of 16 women who might run for president in 2016. Mary Fallin was one of them:
