How to make a Thunder drink that actually tastes good

Image shamelessly stolen from the Oklahoma Gazette.

Well, readers, we are way into the Thunder season, and there’s something that has been weighing pretty heavily on my heart. Every time there’s a game I find myself at a sports bar imbibing heavily and eating my body weight in cheese fries dipped in ranch dressing. And in order to support my boys, I feel it necessary to order whatever Thunder-themed drink is on the menu. Unfortunately, every stinking bar in the OKC Metro area does this awful thing where they put blue curacao in the drink to mimic that Thunder blue.

This is problematic for a number of reasons. Blue curacao is gross, it eats away at the lining of my stomach and gives me heartburn, and it’s fruity and lame which does nothing to highlight the athleticism and masculinity of our team. Bartenders, hear my cry! The Thunder is the one thing that brings us all together. Where college football tears us apart, basketball makes us one. And it’s a damn shame that the bars are serving the jankiest swill under the guise of team spirit that does nothing to honor the great men that represent our city on the court.

So, I’ve made a list of beverages that do not contain blue curacao. Take note, city bartenders.

The Sefolosha

My mom likes to call Thabo “Swiss Chocolate.” Sefolosha may be number 2 on the court, but this drink will be number 1 to your taste buds. Mix one part vanilla ice cream, one part Frangelico, and one part of your favorite Swiss chocolate almond liquer. Blend until smooth. Serve in a parfait glass.

KFOR wants to know if you think more teens with STDs is a bad thing…

Back in December, we let you know about KFOR Channel 4’s bizarre Facebook post asking if it’s okay to rape a child. We determined the question was part of a bigger social media problem at the NBC affiliate.

Well, it looks like the folks at Channel 4 have learned their lesson. Now they are asking less controversial questions on social media, like whether or not more teens with STDs is a bad thing.

Face palm. Here’s a screenshot sent to us by an Ogle Mole:

Tips for Bobbie Burbridge Lane’s “Senior Follies” auditions…

Good news everyone. The audition times for this year’s Senior Follies is quickly approaching. What are Senior Follies? I’m glad you asked, it’s the creation of everyone’s favorite anti-pornography Sports Animal advertiser that features people over the age of 55 singing and dancing. Why would anyone go see this? Because it raises money for Mobile Meals of OK County! That’s honestly the only reason.

Here’s a write-up from Oklahoma City Friday. Why would anyone read the Oklahoma City Friday? Because Friday is a good day of the week:

If you are at least 55, can sing and dance and want to help a great cause, organizers of the annual Senior Follies are hoping you will come audition for the next show.

Founder Bobbie Burbridge Lane said the Senior Follies will again help support Mobile Meals of OK County. Auditions are set for Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013,1-5 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, 1-5 p.m., at Petree Auditorium, 1st Floor, Kirkpatrick Fine Arts Building, Oklahoma City University, 2501 North Blackwelder (Blackwelder & NW 25th St.).

Follies members are volunteer, not paid, Lane said. Organizers are seeking men and women singers, dancers, show girls, quartets, small bands and novelty, variety or specialty acts.
“This is a Ziegfeld Follies Type Revue with lavish production numbers,” Lane said.

An accompanist or CD player will be provided for auditions, if needed. Audition material should be no longer than 5 minutes.
If interested please contact Dr. David Herendeen at 208-5720 to schedule an audition time, Lane said.

If you are of the requisite age and feel like auditioning, I would like to give you some pointers to WOW the judges and cement your spot in this years Senior Follies.

1. Leave your adult diaper at home.

There is nothing more distracting than hearing the crinkling of a diaper in the middle of a  dance routine. I know you think others can’t hear it, but we totally can. Listen, if physical activity makes you occasionally pee or poop, maybe sit this one out.

In defense of the Pioneer Woman

This cheesy staged photograph kind of melts my heart. But just a little bit.

It’s a man’s man’s man’s world here at the Lost Ogle. Every other post features pictures of local hotties, another large portion of our content deals with sports, and Marisa and I are only allowed to talk about the uh, three attractive guys in Oklahoma media once a year. It’s unfair really.

I’m a woman, hear me roar. I like to Pinterest household cleaning tips and photos of Shia LaBeouf and Alexander Skarsgard. My favorite color is leopard print, I wear high heels nearly every day, and I feign interest in sports only to have a legitimate excuse to watch Nick Collison in all of his 7-foot sweaty glory. Also, although most of you would be embarrassed by this fact, last week I bought a robot that sweeps and mops my floor, and I cooed and hovered over it all weekend as if it were a baby or a small dog.

Although I’m a fan of reading mommy blogs, I’m definitely not cut out to contribute to one–well, at least not anytime in the near future. First of all, I’m as single as it gets and have been since the Bush Administration. I don’t watch any prime time soap operas, my job is awesome and I’ll probably never stop working, I think DIY projects are for suckers, and I don’t have any weird complexes about how my hands and neck photograph. These reasons alone disqualify me from ever identifying with majority of the housewives of the world. But I’ll give credit where credit is due, and I’ll just come out an admit it–the Pioneer Woman is sort of awesome not as bad as you think.

According to Damon Lane, it may or may not get “incredibly cold” in two weeks. Let the hype begin.

After the Christmas Blizzard fizzle of a few weeks back, you would think our local TV meteorologists would have learned their lesson regarding dire long-term winter weather forecasting. But did they? Of course not. They’re back at it like never before.

This time, the hype machine is being fueled by KOCO’s Damon Lane. Yesterday, he warned that advanced computer models are forecasting record-breaking low temperatures in OKC… for January 17th.

Yep, here we go again. From KOCO.com:
