I know this happened last week, but a portion of the new I-40 is finally open. For you out-of-towners, the “new” I-40 will replace the old “very dangerous yet exhilarating to cross” I-40 Crosstown Bridge that runs east and west to the south, but not north, of downtown OKC. Sorry, for adding that confusing sentence, I just wanted to use one that include all four cardinal directions.
Last Friday I took a drive on the highway just for the Hell of it. My thoughts…it’s kind of boring. The only thing that makes it special is that freaky ass bridge that will cause many traffic accidents over the next 50 – 75 years. Other than that, it’s like any other new North American highway.
That being said, I wish my drive was as calm, soothing and orderly as this weird ODOT video of the inaugural drive.
Remember that really bad OKC Chamber commercial we wrote about last week? It was that one that targeted old grandmothers, church pastors and all the people who eat at Louie’s.

Last week, lots of readers asked us about Governor Fallin’s appearance on the stage of the Fiesta Bowl Championship Trophy presentation. They asked questions like “Why was she in Arizona watching a football game?” or “Did the state pay for her trip?.” They also made general statements like “I’d wager she invited herself up on stage” and “I hope Mary Fallin being on stage is making you hard right now.”
Anyway, because we are awesome and have too much time on our hands, we emailed the Governor’s office to find out exactly why Ms. Fallin was front and center while Mike Gundy accepted a golden football stuffed with tortilla chips.
Here’s the exchange:
I know it’s been over a year since Amy McRee left News 9 for the seashells and sunshine of California, but we were recently emailed some information about her departure that’s too good not to share. It involves things like the county assessor website, $45,000 and even Wes Welker’s parents.
Here are the details:
