But perhaps the most memorable moment from Game 1 occurred towards the end of the fourth quarter when a group of Thunder fans — including one energetic girl — mocked a frustrated Heat GM Pat Riley and former Heat star Alonzo Mourning. Check out some screenshots and a link to the GIF file after the jump.
Last April, the Devil decided to shake up the struggling KOCO morning show by demoting Mat Garcia and Anita Blanton, and then replacing them with the hot Maggie Stokes and nose-picker Wendell Edwards.
This demotion didn’t set too well with Mat Garcia. He has officially left KOCO for a news channel in San Antonio:
If you’ve ever met my mom, then at some point, she has told you how amazing I am. She has regaled you with the stories of “awesome” things I’ve done, like the time I wrote a professional wrestling-themed musical in the eighth grade, or the time that I ate a donut with Shannon Miller. If you met her recently though, she has probably told you about how I write for The Lost Ogle and how funny I am. Whereas most people can barely tolerate me, my mom celebrates my existence.
This isn’t to say that my mom’s pride is bad. Everyone needs a fan that loves them no matter what, and if my mom didn’t like me as much as she does, I probably would’ve laid down on the railroad tracks a long time ago. But I know her pride in me has to annoy the hell out of other people. And that’s why we need to have a talk about the Thunder.
I can’t tell you how proud I am to be from Oklahoma right now. I get a little teary-eyed when I think about how amazing our team is and how much the city has embraced them. I love how the Thunder has renewed downtown Oklahoma City. Seriously, do you think it would look as nice down there as it does if nobody had any reason to go there except for the occasional concert or traffic violation? We’ve come a long way since the day it was announced that the team would be called the Thunder and there was a minor outrage because everyone played on a little league team at some time or another called that.
Usually we leave our Thunder analysis to our NBA sage Clark Matthews, but he’s at some work conference and doesn’t have access to a computer or the internet. Apparently this conference is taking place in 1982.
Anyway, since Clark Matthews is out of commission and drinking apple juice at the hotel bar, here’s my detailed breakdown of Game 1.
If that headline seems a little mean, well, it’s probably because it is. Then again, it’s also kind of accurate. We do have a new Miss Oklahoma — her name is Alicia Clifton — and she does kind of look like a vampire or alien.
Well, at least she does when you check out her head shot:
Yikes, if I saw something like that walking through the forest I’d shoot it with an arrow, silver bullet and then send it off to Area 51 for inspection. I can’t tell if she’s about to suck my blood or audition for Toddlers & Tiaras. Even Meg Alexander thinks she’s trying too hard.
That being said, there’s no way that Miss Oklahoma can possibly look that weird, right? Oklahoma is the land of Miss Americas. We pump those ladies out faster than natural gas, red dirt and gusty wind combined. Let’s check out some other photos of Ms. Clifton that we found on the web to see if everything’s ok:
