Last night, I asked an Ogle Mole to pick out this morning’s video. The response I got was “Spice Girls.” Yeah, here you go:
In all honesty, this isn’t too bad of a song. It has Victoria Beckham in it before she was THE Victoria Beckham. It also gives you chance to sing the phrase “Really Really Wanna Zigazig Ha,” which translates to “I really really like Butter” in British slang.
Anyway, hopefully this video gets you inspired for today’s Bedlam Game. According to last month’s Oklahoman Sports Department, this is the greatest, most meaningful game in Bedlam history. The winner is assured of an undefeated regular season and a spot in January’s BCS championship game.
Unfortunately though, I think the Oklahoma State
Construction Workers Cowboys are going to win big. I’m really not too upset with this predication, because it means I’ll either be right or pleasantly surprised. That’s one good thing about being a pessimist.
What’s up, readers? Can you believe it’s December? You know all those deadlines for the end of the year that you’ve been ignoring? They’re here. I’m pretty sure I need to write 2 more 20-page papers for school by next Friday, so I guess it’s time to start that pesky research process. Hopefully, you have better time management skills than I do. But if not, you could be like me and ask for some for Christmas! I mean, what’s more adult than asking Santa to make you capable of managing your time? Nothing, that’s freakin’ what.
Anyhow, here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town!
Ladies, do you remember that stupid board game that was basically a trumped-up version of truth or dare and you had to dial this weird phone thing and if you didn’t want to divulge secrets like how much you weighed or who you would totally like to make out with you had to put a zit sticker on your face? Yeah, that was totally called Girl Talk. And, while I was still in elementary school when I played it with my older cousin, it was still terrifying and prepared me well for the cutthroat environment that was Sequoyah Middle School.
Anyway, this Girl Talk isn’t the same. I’m talking about the dude that mashes up songs and makes me wanna dance. He’s playing in Norman. Not that I have my fingers on the scene pulse or nothing, but I can give you some information. I hear that if you go to the OU stadium today at 1:00 PM, there will be an Axe truck. You can get your tickets there for the show that will be Saturday night at the Opolis. If you can grab two tickets for me and contact me via Twitter (@GentleMarisa), I’ll buy you some beverages at the show provided you are of age. If not, then you can have some soda, my treat!
The other day someone asked me why we don’t provide daily coverage or participate in the Occupy OKC movement. I told them there were a bunch of reasons, but primarily because we’re not homeless and that our regular media has done an excellent job giving too much exposure to our city’s minor gathering of homeless people and weirdos. Then this happened on 5am broadcast on KOCO Channel 5 this morning:
I hope this satisfies all the people who don’t think we are giving enough attention to Occupy OKC. Now carry on with your day.
Remember when you were a kid and your family would go downtown to ice skate, ride a snow tube and look at Christmas lights? Yeah, I sure don’t. That’s because Downtown Oklahoma City was a scary ghost town from the 1960s through the early 1990s. The only things to do in downtown then were watch Blazer’s games, eat Indian Tacos in April and run from homeless people.
Yeah, it’s safe to say things have changed. Now Downtown OKC is the place to be. If you need proof, just look at Downtown in December presented by Devon Energy. This yearly event provides a bunch of fun holiday activities for families, couples and single people like me who have nothing better to do on a Wednesday night.
Because the people at Downtown OKC are awesome, they gave us a $100 Downtown in December Prize Pack to give away to one lucky reader. To register, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell us the worst Christmas present you’ve ever received. We’ll then draw one comment at random. Whoever submitted that comment will win the following:
Four passes to the Chesapeake Energy Snow Tubing: This is my favorite Downtown in December event. That’s because I’m wild, adventurous and drink Diet Mountain Dew. Plus, it’s cool to tube and not worry about drowning.
Four passes and skate rental to the Devon Ice Rink: The Devon Ice Rink is always fun, especially when you’re a gifted athlete like me and like to dazzle the crowd with incredible triple toe-loop, double-lutz combinations. But don’t worry, even if you’re an uncoordinated pansy who clings to the wall like Clark Matthews, outdoor ice skating is still pretty fun.
Four passes to OK Cityscape: I was trying to think of a clever way to describe this thing, but then I started thinking about the time I stepped on a Lego barefoot. Instead, I’ll let whoever wrote the content on the Downtown in December website describe this event: “OK Cityscape is presented at a kids’ eye view, brought to life with lights, sounds effects and animatronics. The 2011 display brings a fun alien invasion to OK Cityscape, complete with spaceships, extraterrestrials, and a host of special effects. A Kids Construction Zone also allows kids to build their own creations. Proceeds from the exhibit go to Oklahoma City Educare, a flagship early childhood education center.”
Once again, to register for this prize pack just leave a comment and tell us the worst Christmas gift you’ve ever received. The deadline to register is Wednesday, December 7th at 11:59pm.
p.s. – Thanks goes out to Downtown in December presented by Devon Energy for providing this prize pack. Good luck!
Look, I know Oklahoma played this past weekend. But if a tree falls in a forest, and nobody hears it fall, did it actually fall? Something something no fans were at the game something it was boring as hell something something metaphor. It was a brutal game to watch at home. I pity you fools who paid upwards of $10 to watch that waste of 4 hours. Dropped passes, no running game, punt, punt, punt. I would suggest that perhaps the Oklahoma brass not schedule a shitty home game the Saturday of Thanksgiving break if they want to have more than a few hundred students roll out.
