With it being Super-Amazing Bedlamageddon Bedlam Week presented by The Oklahoman, we thought it would be fun to tackle an age-old Bedlam debate: Is it okay to cheer for a school that you did not attend?
Most OSU fans would say “Yes,” while most OU fans would say “Who Cares.” Then again, most OSU fans root for the Cowboys only because they went to school there, whereas most OU fans cheer for the Sooners because they are fair-weather fans who support the state’s only tradition-rich sports program.
Anyway, Clark Matthews and I are going to Oglebate the topic today. Check it out:
Yesterday, we shared a few Made-In-Oklahoma Christmas gifts that people could add to their Cyber Monday shopping carts. One of the items featured was a Young Jenni Carlson T-shirt Coffee Mug. We thought the idea was kind of funny and would make a great Christmas gift for that special someone who likes shitty sports columns and new nicknames for Bedlam.
Well, the Oklahoman didn’t think the mug was a very good gift idea. In fact, they kind of got mad about it. Check out this “cease and desist” email they sent to us:
The only time it’s a good idea to lie about your occupation is when you’re applying for loan, working on a resume or trying to impress an attractive person at a bar. Other than that, you should never lie about what you do for a living…especially when talking with police about why you’re trying to burn down a laundry mat.
We are in the midst of holiday season, and if you drink as much as I do during these festive times, go ahead and install one of those handicap chairs in your shower. It will save you from the dangers of drunk showering. With the end of November fast approaching, it’s time to vote for the “Oklahoman of the Month.” So read through our news-makers and pick the one that you think deserves the TLO nod!
Also, our Oklahoman of the Month last month was Bibi Jones! This is her second time to be nominated and second time to win (I’m starting to think you guys like porn stars).
Your nominees for November are:
• The Oklahoma Earthquake
• Ed Shadid
• Biker Fox
• Former Tulsa Urban Weekly Cartoonist
• Matt Kemp
Vote for your favorite after the jump!
Fried turkey, Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider, mashed apathy, creamed field goal attempts, and the most underwhelming Black Friday crowd in the nation–ah, nothing like Thanksgiving in Tulsa. While you were eating Meemaw’s stuffing like a recovered Atkin’s diet victim and arguing about politics with your extended family, I was experiencing one of the most poignant existential crises of my real world life (which arguably has only been active a mere six months).
I know, I sound like a whiny bitch right about now, but something about Christmas in the suburbs drives content, easy-going individuals to examine their current situation and fabricate their own supposed failures. If you or your significant other is entering one of these slumps, I recommend treating yourself and that special someone to a classic night on the town in the true heart of Oklahoma, good ole’ Tulsa. That is, unless you’re single like me. In that case, adopt a cat, slap a bag of Franzia, and Netflix some Ally McBeal.
Along with all my other single ladies, I too waste ample amounts of time day dreaming about the elaborate, fairy-tale dates my knight in shining armor may or may not take me on one day. At least if I share them with you, I can consider my fantasies somewhat productive (or at least, a little less pathetic). Here’s the list of the best things to do with that lovely lady in your life this season. You’ll want to thank me…after she thanks you (enter winky face emoji here):
