Ordinarily, this is where I commiserate with all of you about how it’s Monday and Mondays suck worse than the Broadway Extension at I-44 during rush hour, but today is different. Because later today will be the official unveiling of the bracket for Ogle Madness 6! Yes, it’s that most wonderful time of the year again, when we celebrate Ogle Madness champions both recent (Emily Sutton!) and old (Lauren Richardson? Who?) and start up our office pools for this year’s tournament. I don’t know about you, but I’m hitching my wagon to BJ Wexler’s Popcorn Machine making a huge Cinderalla run.

Until Ogle Madness is revealed later today, here’s some tweets to tide you over.

Mailbag: William H. Macy, Olivia Munn, and Paul Folger standing on a box.

Before we get to this batch of emails, let’s touch base on a few things:

• The Ogle Madness VI bracket will be unveiled on Monday! That’s kind of exciting. In case you’re not familiar with it, Ogle Madness is our annual Oklahoma celebrity tournament. We take 68 people, places and things, seed them in NCAA tourney style brackets, and have our readers vote for who they want to advance. This year’s contest is being presented by our friends at Picassos in Paseo. More details on all of that on Monday.

• Quick word of advice. Let’s say you have the stomach flu and pain in your upper right side that could be caused by a faulty gallbladder, do not google your symptoms. Once again, DO NOT google your symptoms. You may find yourself reading disturbing posts on a colon cancer message board at 3:00am. That’s not good for you. Instead, go see a doctor at OU Medical Center. They’ll get you fixed up. When you go in for your appointment, be sure to drive a new Volkswagen, and if you feel like giving the doctor a funny story to tell, wear something from Patricia’s.

Anyway, enough about that. To the mailbag:

Friday night in the big town: Willie, careers, and cars

FNITBT

Well, readers, Tuesday was my three year TLO anniversary. That’s right. I’ve been writing for The Lost Ogle for three years, which, incidentally, is way longer than I’ve ever held a job. I think my longevity here is due to the lack of rules and such. But that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is that on March 5, 2010, I started writing FNITBT for this blog. And, much like most men, these guys totally forgot our blogiversary. No flowers, no candies, no fancy dinner. Nothing. Ladies, blogging may seem glamorous. But it’s just as lame as your real life relationships.

Anyway, here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.

March 8: Willie Nelson at the Lucky Star Casino

I could fill a book with stories about friends of mine and their behavior at Willie Nelson concerts. Their antics will leave you wondering if your body could handle the amount of drugs/alcohol needed to act the fool at the same level they did. The answer is probably no. And for this reason, I also have a lot of friends who have attended various rehab programs.

Anyway, perhaps you’re a fan of the music and not the antics of my friends. And if that’s the case, you’ll need to head on over to Concho to catch this show. It looks like tickets are still available, so you should pack up a car of all your closest friends. And when your all done, you can do some gambling. Put a $20 in a machine for me. If it wins, you can give me the winnings. If you lose, sorry dude. Sucks for you.

According to this internal email, KFOR is compiling a list of local “movers and shakers” to follow on Twitter…

kfor facebook post child rape

What do Kevin Durant, sex attorney David Slane and The Lost Ogle all have in common?

Apparently, we’re all “movers and shakers” and a great source for local news tips.

At least we are according to KFOR Channel 4. We’ve acquired through the Ogle Mole Network an odd email sent by KFOR Social Media Director Ashton Edwards to the station’s staff. She’s apparently compiling a Twitter list of notable people, places and things and is looking for a few suggestions. She even provided some examples of what she’s looking for.

This guy beat up his son-in-law for not doing the dishes..

Here’s a joke for you.

Q: What do you do when your dishwasher stops working?

A: Get a new wife!

Okay, that’s sexist, inappropriate, recycled and kind of funny. Here’s another one:

Q: What do you do when your dishwasher stops working?

A: Sucker punch your son-in-law and get your ass kicked!

That’s not nearly as funny as the first joke, but it is accurate. That’s what the guy pictured above did.
