So the University of Oklahoma apparently commissioned a poll this spring to determine what college team Oklahomans cheer for. The results were released this morning and lit up twitter, with OU flacks highlighting the fact that about 3/4ths of Oklahomans cheer for the Sooners.
I think I can speak for all OU fans when I say, “SUCK IT OSU! WE WIN! THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN YOU! KNEEL BEFORE OUR GREAT NUMBERS! WE COMPRISE 77% OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS STATE BASED ON A STUDY OF 650 ADULTS WITH A MARGIN OF ERROR OF 3.8%!!! BOOMER!” Someone needs to put that on a sign, baby.

Jim Traber, host of the popular radio program Loud Guy Yells At People, is one person we all love to hate. Frankly, I don’t think it would be such fun if it wasn’t so apparent how much it gets under his skin. Seriously, folks, check out that twitter feed. That is one angry dude.
Anyway, here’s your opportunity to vote on which oft-used phrase The Ultimate uses that is the worst of all. After the jump, the nominees.
Hey! You probably don’t know me. I used to write for this site, back in the salad days (131 posts in the first 13 months, 8 in the last three years). Clark Matthews refers to me as “The Sarah Palin of The Lost Ogle” because of my propensity to give up early.
Last week I was talking to Patrick and he told me wants me to start posting again and has a great idea for what I should write about: OETA. Seriously, dude – eight posts in three years. I’m as big an Angela Rosecrans fan as anyone, but I’m not leaving cushy post-obscure-local-social-blogging-retirement for freaking OETA.
But then I heard the Total Dominance Hour last Thursday and got so aggravated I had no choice but to see if I could remember my password here and write about it.
I tuned in in the middle of the conversation, so I don’t know how they got started talking about it, but they were talking about boxing. Do you know what Jim and Al think about boxing? After the flip, I’ll tell you.
You’ve all seen those self-help books sitting on the shelves at your local bookstore, written by some psychologist or pastor or MD or Jennifer Love-Hewitt BS-ing you about how to lose weight or find love or build your self-esteem. This is, uh, this is not going to be about any of them.
Aaron Goldfarb is the lovely fellow in that picture above, an Oklahoma City native who moved to New York City to… well, I’m not really sure why he moved to New York City, but he did and he wrote a book. Which is how we have arrived at this point. It’s called “How to Fail: The Self Hurt Guide,” and it’s exactly that. It’s also extremely funny and crass, which is why readers of this blog will probably like it.
A brief interview with the author after the jump.
So I was going to do a post about how Dean Blevins is now on twitter (and we’ll get to that in a minute), but in the course of writing that last week I discovered this… thing… on okblitz.com. It’s an entry on Dean’s blog that I didn’t even know existed and holy cow is this weird, from the formatting to the piece itself.
A closer examination after the jump.
