Today begins the Sweet Sixteen round of Ogle Madness, with matchups from the East and Midwest Regions. With the top 4 seeds advancing in both regions, we have some compelling games being played today. These contests will take place at Robber’s Cave State Park near Wilburton and The Toy and Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley.
Vote until midnight after the jump. UPDATE: Voting actually will continue through Tuesday. Keep voting, people.
(1) Gary England vs. (4) Carrie Underwood
(3) Jessica Schambach vs. (2) Cardboard Jim Traber
(1) Sam Bradford vs. (4) Mike Gundy

We’ve had upsets (Lee Symcox over Berry Tramel), we’ve had a blowouts (Kristen Chenoweth over Jenni Carlson), and we’ve had nail-biters (Brandon Chatmon over Toby Keith). We’ve also had controversy (somebody tried to vote for Steve Lackmeyer a few hundred times.) Through it all, we are now down to just 32 Oklahoma “Celebrities” battling for the right to be Ogle Madness II Champion. To view an updated PDF of the Ogle Madness II bracket, click here.

Before we begin with the madness, lets review some things:
“¢ Elyse Downs defeated Brianna DeCassios in The Ogle Madness Play-In Game. Elyse will play Sam Bradford on Wednesday.
“¢ One of our readers felt sorry for the original Ogle Madness II Logo and designed the one you see above. I guess it will work…unless someone can design a better one. Maybe we should have an Ogle Madness Logo Design Contest.
Anyway, now that all that stuff is out of the way, lets review today’s match-ups. They come from the upper bracket of the East Region and will be played in Wilburton at the Robbers Cave State Park and Lodge.
“¢ (1) Gary England vs. (16) Wimgo
“¢ (8) Brent Skarky vs. (9) Toby Rowland
“¢ (4) Carrie Underwood vs. (13) Jennifer “Oklahoma” Reeder
“¢ (5) Mark Rodgers vs. (12) Van Shea Iven
Find out a little bit about each person (and fledgling website) and vote after the jump. Voting ends at midnight tonight.
69 years ago today, our lord, savior and favorite meteorologist was born in the quaint village of Seiling, Oklahoma. Severe weather has never been the same.
So, from The Lost Ogle family to yours, we wish you a safe, happy and peaceful Gary England Day!

You might have figured out by now that we are fans of Gary England. He uses his folksy charm to bring us the weather in an unparalleled manner, and when angered, his justice — in the form of severe weather — is carried out swiftly, fairly and precisely. We are great admirers of his work.
Which is why it was with great horror that the following story was related to us by one of our loyal readers. She describes it as “a sad story about the heartbreak of an 8 year old girl and a pompous weather man.”
Jump back! Yes, folks, there may be a dark side to Gary England. A side that probably only rears it’s head when provoked by little girls that deserve it, but a dark side nonetheless. We present it in the interest of being fair and balanced.
After the jump, the story of one girl, one weather man, and a relationship that could never be repaired.
