Top 25 Oklahoma Sports Figures Since 2000 (25-21)

The next few weeks, I will present the Top 25 Oklahoma Sports Figures over the past 10 years. So there be no mention of Jim Thorpe or Barry Switzer or naked Byron Houston. And, apparently, there will be no mention of me and my athletic exploits both during and after high school. I’ll have you know that I was the Offensive MVP of my high school baseball team that finished only one game under .500. Where are my accolades? Who could possibly be a greater sports figure? How can there be 25 greater sports figures from Oklahoma?  Find these answers after the jump.

Olivia Munn is attractive…and an Oklahoman.

This is cool.  Thanks to a reader tip, we have learned that Olivia Munn- host of G4’s Attack of the Show and the hot chick who graces this month’s cover of Playboy – is an Oklahoman.  We know this because she was born here.  From the always reliable Wikipedia:

Olivia Munn was born in Oklahoma to Sam and Kim Munn. She is of Chinese descent on her mother’s side and of Caucasian descent on her father’s. When Munn was two, her mother re-married to a man in the Air Force.  Although the family relocated many times, Munn was predominantly raised in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan, where the military assigned her stepfather. During this time, she had appeared in a number of local theater productions, and later became a model within the Japanese fashion industry. She also attended the University of Oklahoma, majoring in journalism and minoring in Japanese and dramatic arts.

Yep.  The girl who graces this month’s cover of Playboy went to the journalism school at OU.  That’s pretty cool, because it means that there has to be some “before she was famous” Olivia Munn photos improving some Lost Ogle reader’s dormant MySpace page or hard drive.  If you have these pictures – or know where they are – they should be emailed to TheLostOgle at gmail dot com immediately!  It’s the right thing to do.

Anyway, being the Internet cool guys that we are, you would think we’d be more familiar with Ms. Munn’s body of work.  But unfortunately we’re not.  Until today, I thought G4 was just an obscure cable network that showed Cheaters reruns all day long.  Clark Matthews has claimed to watch Attack of the Show a couple of times, but that was only to get Leisure Suit Larry gaming tips.  You may not have known it, but Clark Matthews is one of the world’s premier Leisure Suit Larry gamers.  Surprised, aren’t you?

Now that we know who Olivia is and that we may have ogled her at some bar on Campus Corner, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll watch more G4 TV.  I also think it’s safe to say that we have an early favorite for Ogle Madness III.  Think about it.  Olivia is a female, hot and even has some pictures of her in a pink bikini floating around the Internet …only without the bikini top (kinda NSFW)! That’s almost unfair!  I can only think of one way that the Lauren Richardsons, Amy McRees and Kristin Chenoweths of the world can compete with this and it involves tastefully done photography, soft lighting and Photoshop.  Fortunately, The Lost Ogle offers all of these services for free.
