Hello again, boys and girls! It’s yet another Monday morning, and therefore time for another edition of Monday Morning Tweets.
I spent a lot of time wrestling with whether or not I should include the above Ogle-bait from your newly-crowned Ogle Madness V champion. On the one hand: Joleen Chaney and Emily Sutton pillow fight! On the other hand: “don’t be the creepy guy” is one of my life’s philosophies, and one day you’re writing about pillow fights, then you’re composing possibly disturbing yet surprisingly catchy songs to post on the internet, and the next day you’re dancing to Goodbye Horses. So the pillow fight is acknowledged and you guys can do with it what you will, but I’m moving on. This week’s tweets are after the jump!
Welcome back to the Friday Mailbag presented by Kaiser’s Bistro. Each Friday we take a look at some reader emails and let our readers vote for their favorite one. Whoever sends in the email that gets the most votes receives a $25 Gift Certificate to Kaiser’s.
Here is last week’s winner:
So the mega millions is at 500 million this friday. What would the lost ogle do if they won? I say build a huge building downtown next to devon tower which looks like james harden’s beard.
Congrats, Max. You won a $25 Gift Certificate to Kaiser’s. Unfortunately, we didn’t win the lottery, so I guess we won’t be able to build a tower that looks like James Harden’s beard. Anyway, here are this week’s emails. Read them below, and if you have a thought, question or rant you’d like to email to us, send it to TheLostOgle@gmail.com.
I have lived in Oklahoma forever and cannot get an answer why we have 3.2 beer. Can you tackle this issue?
What’s up, readers? If you’re one of the kajillion people who has already seen The Hunger Games, I’m going to have to ask you to shut your mouth about it. I have a hot date with my mom coming up soon and we’re going to see that movie! So don’t ruin it for me just because I refuse to go see movies on the weekend when teenagers are there texting and talking the whole freaking time. Seriously, zip it. Or, I’ll tell all you kids who didn’t read the book that Katniss ends up with Peeta and not Gale…ooops.
Anyway, here’s your Friday Night in the Big town.
Last March we unveiled a field of 68 Oklahoma celebrities, people, places and things that were all vying for the crown of Ogle Madness V Champion. 67 match-ups later and a champion has been determined. Her name is Emily Sutton. Here’s the final bracket. The Ogle Madness V “One Shining Moment” tribute video is after the jump:
On Saturday, Spencer and I took our dear friend Cardboard Jim Traber to the Medieval Fair of Norman. We figured this would be a lot like Cardboard Jim’s other travels. Show up, take pictures and not try to feel too ridiculous carrying around a life-sized cardboard cutout of Regular Jim Traber.
And then it happened.
Just a few minutes after we arrived at the Medieval Fair, and before we could even eat a Turkey leg, drink some Sarsaparilla or even buy Cardboard Jim his jester hat, we spotted a hefty figuring trudging through the food court. He was about 5′ 10,” hefty, and had a greased-down, Barry Melrose-style hair cut. He was being followed by an entourage of woman ranging between the ages of 18 – 50. It was really him. It was Regular Jim Traber.
Without hesitation, we walked towards The Man, The Myth, The Ego and asked if he would like to take a photograph with Cardboard Jim. Perhaps fearing that this may cause the universe to collapse into itself, Regular Jim smiled, slightly raised and waved his left hand like he was telling a waitress he didn’t need any more coffee, and said something to the effect of “No thanks, fellas.” He then continued his march through the food court like nothing happened. Meanwhile, everyone in his family, including the lovely Jules, tried to pick up their jaws from the ground.
Yeah, I guess it was kind of anti-climactic. I figured that if we ever stumbled into Regular Jim at an event that he would chase us around like a Japanese pitcher or man carrying a donut. I didn’t think he’d blow us off like some bum asking for change in Bricktown.
Anyway, running into Cardboard Jim was odd, but it wasn’t the weirdest thing to happen at a place that makes us obscure local social bloggers feel cool and hip. See what we’re talking about and a score of other pictures from Cardboard Jim’s trip to the The Medieval Fair of Norman.
