Oglebating: To Boo or Not to Boo James Harden

Well, this is awkward.

Nearly one month after being dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Martin will face his former team, the Houston Rockets, tonight at Chesapeake Arena.

Okay, so that’s not the storyline at all. You know what it is. James Harden is making his highly anticipated return to Oklahoma City. Obviously, there’s a lot of discussion surrounding this event. People want to know how the Oklahoma City will fans treat the beardgrower. Will they cheer and applaud, or boo and hiss?

Marisa and I tackle the issue in a special edition of “Oglebating: To Boo or Not to Boo James Harden.” Check out our positions and vote for how you feel after the jump.

Screw the Redhawks. I want my OKC 89ers back. (photos)

Proving there really is a blog for everything, I recently stumbled across a website called The Greatest 21 Days. The site focuses on minor league baseball cards, and more specifically, “1990 CMC and Pro Cards minor league baseball card sets, and what happened to each of the players it contained.” And no, I’m not making that up.

Anyway, I found the site when performing a basic Google blog search for “Oklahoma City.” Back in October, they profiled the 1990 Oklahoma City 89ers. Here are a couple of notable players from the team:

We received a letter From Hasheem Thabeet’s hair

Alright, I don’t know if any of you have seen me, but if you haven’t then that means you haven’t watched my YouTube videos. It’s like that? Anyway. I pretty much have the greatest head of hair you’ll ever see in the time between your birth and death. I haven’t cut it since December 2011 and it has grown into a beautiful lion’s mane of curly Egyptian Cotton. 10,000 thread count. I say all of that to say this, I get questions about my hair all the time. The Top 3 Questions are:

1) Can I touch it?

2) Are you gonna get dreads?

3) Would you like to slap me in the face for asking annoying questions about your hair?

2/3 answers are No. You be the judge. And I don’t if people assume because I’m tall and Black with long hair I represent all tall long-haired Blacks, but people always ask me questions about Hasheem Thabeet’s hair like I’m ‘sposed to know why it’s blonde. So I decided to get to the bottom of it so everyone would leave me alone. I talked to my barber and after a quick Thunder-Lakers debate, I asked him who cuts Hasheem Thabeet’s hair. Once he told me, I emailed that barber and asked if he could deliver a message to Hasheem Thabeet’s hair for me. Three days later I received a response via my mailman Sherman.

Here’s the letter:

Now elementary school students are beating up their teachers

I remember my days at John Ross Elementary back in Edmond fondly. The day we got new playground equipment, winning student of the month the first month of every school year, and being called fat every day of the first grade by a blonde girl named Megan (who should really check Facebook once in a while because, bitch, your husband is cheating on you). As much as I dog on Edmond, it really was a good place to grow up. The schools were great, and thanks to Megan, I learned how the rest of the world views me and decided to pursue a career where people couldn’t actually see how I look.

Despite my happy memories, I suppose there are those who don’t have them. For example, there’s a 9-year-old from Orvis Risner who has assaulted a teacher.

We’ve discovered OKC’s version of Iron Man. Her name is Ms. McDonald.

The lady pictured above is Ms. McDonald. If she looks like your typical Oklahoma State Fair goer, well, it’s because she probably is. But get this. She’s also a local vigilante crime fighter. Over the weekend, she broke up a gang of Oklahoma City house burglars and did it all from the comfort of here motorized wheel chair.
