Ogle Madness VII Championship Game: (1) Emily Sutton vs. (6) Lacey Swope

The hook echo of Ogle Madness matches is before us.

(1) Emily Sutton vs. (6) Lacey Swope

In one corner we have Emily Sutton. She’s a two-time Ogle Madness champion, an irresistible severe weather diva that combines sneaky good looks with the bubbly adorable charm of a girl next door. In the other corner we have Lacey Swope – the hot, small town tomboy. She can shoot a gun better than you, ride a 4-wheeler better than you, and make the weather map look a whole lot better than you.

So who will it be? After hiding in Emily’s shadow for the last two years, is Lacey ready to take over the crown of severe weather babe? Or will Emily Sutton show us why she’s Emily Sutton, cast her potent charm spell, and reign supreme for the third year in a row.

Cast your vote and let us know. Polls close tomorrow at 11:59pm.

MMT: The Royal KFOR Wedding

We have a lot to cover this Monday. The tweets in the OKC area were really at a whole ‘nother level this past week. I’d like to congratulate all of you for stepping up your tweet game. Some people say you should dance like no one is watching. But it’s clear you guys like to tweet like your boss can’t google you. Personally, I’m more the type to eat Taco Bell like my jeans have an elastic waist band. But you know, to each their own. Anyway, let’s get to the tweets!

Friday Night in the Big Town: Medieval Fair, Sleigh Bells and smART Art

FNITBT

Hello everyone. It’s Adam, and it’s spring.

Spring brings problems. As Chelsea mentioned earlier in the week, for those of us will allergies, spring isn’t really that celebrated. Every week I receive two shots because of all the lovely pollen.

Also, being the fair-skinned badass that I am, UV rays do me no favors. Actually, we aren’t even on speaking terms. I wear SPF 4000 sunscreen. It’s basically a radiation suit in a bottle. Even with that it’s quite the battle.

My worst nemesis is most likely the wasp, or anything that stings. They return in the spring. I don’t like them. I’ve outrun yellow jackets twice. If you aren’t familiar with these guys, they are fast, small monsters with swords stuck to their backsides, but I’m faster. That time sixth grade Adam took off with the wasps in pursuit would of made Usain Bolt proud. I will not be defeated.

Here are things to do.

This blogger from Ada is tired of pale white girl discrimination…

how to catch a white girl

Last week, an Ogle Mole sent me a link to an obscure local social blog from Ada. It’s called “Keeping Up with the Nuefelds,” and its semi-anonymous author, who we’ll call Discriminated White Girl, is one of the country’s leading caucasian women’s rights advocates.

If you need a little proof, check out this stirring blog post titled “Rantings of a White Girl,” where Discriminated White Girl explains what it’s like to never be asked to move to the back of the bus.

The purpose of me writing this is not to offend anyone this is just my thought for the day so I really hope that you don’t get offended and that you just read what I have to say and think about it.

I’m at a diversity training for my work and a lot of the people in my class make it sound like being white is one of the best things that you can be in America & that white people are NEVER discriminated against. I have a few thoughts on that….

First off, being white isn’t as cool as people make it sound. As a white female from Oklahoma, summer is actually one of my least favorite seasons because I’m white. Whenever I say that I’m white I mean that I’m white like as in ghostly white. Almost every day I get made fun of about how white I am & people even say things like “if you were tanner you would be prettier” or “if you would tan your white legs would be so distracting”.

Yes, being white is not nearly as cool as country music makes it sound. All the white stereotypes you hear about – Whole Foods, NASCAR, higher wages – are totally overrated.

Let’s continue:

They say lots of hurtful things to me on a daily basis just because of my skin color. I mean, I’m not as pretty because I’m white?! I can’t change the color of my skin & it hurts me that people don’t accept me the way I am. people tell me that if I went tanning in tanning beds or get spray tans that I would look better and be prettier, this really hurts my feelings especially because I don’t want to have to lay in a tanning bed with the possibility of getting cancer or breathing in harmful chemicals that spray tans have in them. Some people may think my feelings are stupid but they haven’t walked in my shoes!

Don’t tan, Discriminated White Girl! That’s the opposite of what Michael Jackson did, and look how he turned out. Also, you may want to start looking for new friends. Preferably ones that don’t pick on your insecurities like you’re a chubby kid at recess. Otherwise, you may need to grow some thicker, whiter skin.

As a white person I don’t even really fit in with other white people because in Oklahoma most people have Native American heritage which gives them a little color.

I also live in Ada, Oklahoma which is the Chickasaw nation headquarters! I’ve been passed over for several jobs with people who have only a high school diploma whenever I have a masters degree just because I don’t have Native American blood. don’t get me wrong, they can hire whoever they want and they have every right to do so but it does kind of suck to be a white person in this area because I do not get the jobs, benefits or job opportunities that Native Americans do.

Poor little Discriminated White Girl. Not only can she not get jobs because of her skin color, but she can’t “fit in” with anyone because she’s not Native American. Isn’t that just awful? It’s so sad that we live in a country where you’re expected to “fit in” with people who don’t have the same ancestral background. What are we turning into? A diverse, functional society?

Also, where exactly did Discriminated White Girl get her Master’s Degree, because I totally want to go there. As you know, I also struggle with punctuation, capitalization and general sentence structure, and could really use an advanced degree that’s easy to get. Perhaps something in business, that way, I can use my whiteness to my advantage.

I just think that people shouldn’t focus so much on what their race goes through and be more open to see that other races go through things as well. Don’t get me wrong, I know that other races have been through and still go through way worse things than I do every single day but at the same time people do need to realize that just because I’m a white person doesn’t mean that I have all the opportunities that they do and that I have a perfect life because I don’t.

I agree. Minorities need to be more aware of the struggles that white girls face in southern Oklahoma. Have you ever been turned down for a job simply because you would not spray tan?

I want to fit in just as much as anyone else, even in my own race I feel like an outsider.

Yes, she’s an outsider. If you don’t believe it, check out this photo. She sticks out like a bad French fry:

Unintentional Comedy Alert: Ali Meyer should do more serious crime reporting

The other day, we came across a dated, 2004 investigative report by KFOR’s Ali Meyer about a man who was convicted of murder and placed on death row in the 1970s despite some very shaky eyewitness testimony and the fact that we was represented by a defense attorney who probably couldn’t make it as a Braum’s employee.

How dated is this clip?

Well, Kevin Ogle looked like this:

Linda Cavanaugh wore this:

And Ali Meyer? Well, just watch the entire report after the jump. Although it’s about a sad, serious topic, there’s a very cheesy and unintentionally hilarious part where Ali Meyer plays the role of the stereotypical, over-the-top, 48 Hours crime reporter. It comes on around the 1:50 mark:
