Yesterday afternoon, the NBA unveiled a new commercial featuring Russell Westbrook. It’s pretty cool. You should watch it here if you haven’t seen it.
This is where John Rohde stepped in.
Rohde, who apparently does not understand how the internet works, took offense that Royce would post a YouYube video on Daily Thunder without crediting The Oklahoman.
The girl pictured above is Thunder Girl Kelsey Self. This is her third year to wear skimpy clothes, white shorts and dance out of unison with other girls at The Peake. She’s an OU student, dance teacher, and when she grows up, she wants to edit a magazine.
Also, according to a blog post by “Claire Crawford” on CBS Sports Radio 610 in Houston, Kelsey may be “too chunky.” Check it out:
Readers, if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that middle school totally sucked. Your body is changing in all these new and wonderful ways, the kid with the locker next to yours maybe kind of likes you, but also throws rocks at you when you get off the school bus. All you want is privacy and alone time, but your parents totally feel the need to ask you embarrassing personal questions all the time. And for the life of you, you can’t figure out how to do your hair so that you look at least semi-decent. You could not pay me to be 13 again.
As if all that weren’t enough, a now former Oklahoma City principal had students arrested for coming to school because they were suspended for being late to school. By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about all the goings ons at Jefferson Middle School.
During last year’s playoff run, a bunch of boring white guys from Weatherford created a parody video called Beard Like Harden. The “Moves Like Jagger” spoof went virally locally, helped spur the Beardmania craze that hit Oklahoma City, and for better or for worse – I prefer “for worse” – became Berry’s Boomers’ unofficial fight song as they marched through the playoffs.
In case you forgot about it, here it is:
Sorry about getting that back in your head. The follow-up “Boring like Martin” wasn’t nearly as popular.
Anyway, I bring all this up because it looks like we’ve found the replacement to Beard Like Harden. It’s called THUNDER CHANT FIGHT SONG. It was written and performed by some caveman named Mathias. He’s from Southern California. Here’s the video:
