The News 9 weather team was also disappointed in their weather forecast…

I posted the following graphic on Facebook and Twitter a few times on Sunday and Monday. It shows the snowfall total predictions made by each OKC TV affiliate on Sunday night at about 6:00pm.

As you can see, our weatherman once again missed the mark on a much-hyped winter storm. Woodward received 15-inches of snow, while parts of the Oklahoma City Metro— where I’d guess 90% of their viewing audience lives —barely received a dusting. And yes, that sentence just made Steve Shaw giggle.

If you are extremely disappointed or upset with the winter weather forecasting incompetence of our local weather folks, don’t worry, you should be. You probably changed plans or made a big batch of chili like I did in preparation for the weather, so you have a right to be upset. But when you gripe, complain and make jokes at the office today, don’t forget how pathetic and lonely our AMS certified weather folks must feel. Their job is to accurately predict and forecast the weather and they failed miserably. The over-hype and coverage of this event has to be embarrassing. They must feel pathetic and terrible, right?

Well, that’s exactly why Gary England and his weather team made the following video:

News 9′s Steve Shaw asked an OSU student if she can handle 5 to 8 inches…

For the last two over-hyped weather events, we selected a couple of images that “summarized” the excessive severe weather coverage provided by our local media. One was the famous graphic of Mike Morgan declaring a cold windy day or life threatening blizzard. The other was a screenshot of the KOKH webpage that featured a bunch of weather maps with nothing on them.

This time around we’re not choosing an image to summarize the coverage. If we did, it would be Spanky Mealy, the ringleader of the famed Mealy Boys. Instead, we’re going to go with this video clip of Steve Shaw asking an OSU student a very peculiar question:

Oklahoma City is the third best city in the country for pet lovers…

The real estate website Movoto.com recently released its ranking of the Top 10 American cities for pet lovers. Oklahoma City made the list. Here’s the Top 10:

10. Dallas, TX

9. Charlotte, NC

8. Milwaukee, WI

7. Louisville, KY

6. Phoenix, AZ

5. Austin, TX

4. San Diego, CA

3. Oklahoma City, OK

2. El Paso, TX

1. Jacksonville, FL

Although it’s kind of embarrassing to be beaten by El Paso at anything, I guess it’s cool that we made the top 10. That being said, I think we got robbed. Check out the data Movoto used to compile the rankings:

According to these videos, Emily Sutton had fun at Single in the City

That’s a pic of local broadcasting legend (kidding) Brent Skarky talking to Emily Sutton at Saturday night’s “Single in the City” auction. Why would Brent Skarky be allowed in the same room as Emily, much less granted time to have a conversation with her on a stage??? Well, the people at Oklahoma Magazine picked Brent to emcee the auction. That’s right, they went with the Skarkster. Apparently their first choice, Driver from the Sports Animal, called in sick at the last second.

Anyway, I didn’t make this year’s auction, but an Ogle Mole in attendance provided me with some grainy, poorly lit videos of Emily on the auction block. I think you can say she had a good time. Here are the videos.

Check out Channel 9′s unintentionally-funny response to Channel 4′s Obama interview…

Yesterday, KFOR aired Kevin Ogle’s much hyped interview with President — and Oklahoma anti-Christ — Barack Obama. I was going to share and link to the interview here, but KFOR has removed the embed feature from their online videos. So screw them. Here’s a better video instead:

Yeah, that’s much more entertaining.

In all honesty, Kevin Ogle’s interview wasn’t that bad. He asked a few softball questions about gas prices and guns and found a way to talk about the Thunder. The best part, though, was the beginning. Frankenogle was so damn tall that they had to delay the interview to adjust the cameras! This gave the President and the Ogle-In-Chief time to awkwardly discuss Kevin’s playing days at Kansas State. You could tell that Kevin’s ridiculously tall stature took the President by surprise. Throughout the interview, he gave Kevin the same “Holy Shit!” -look that thousands of Oklahomans have made whenever seeing the news anchor out an about, and especially at concerts, movie theaters and Thunder games.

Not to be outdone by Channel 4′s interview with the President, Channel 9 landed their own exclusive sweeps week interview. Check it out:
