Halloween weekend is the most magical time of the year for heathens like me. Costumes, candy, horror movie marathons, and parties are all I ever really want out of life. There’s just something freeing about being able to let loose, dress up, and indulge in spooky childish joys. And the best part is, we still have a few more days left to celebrate. If any of y’all have a great costume this year, fill me in on your plans in the comments. Keep reading and you’ll see my very TLO-appropriate ensemble down below.
Tulsans Are Flip-Floppers
— Tulsa's Channel 8 (@KTULNews) October 28, 2018
So far in October, almost 6,400 Tulsa voters have changed their party affiliation. The majority were wanting to identify as Republicans. Kudos to the Tulsa World for throwing down their endorsement for Kevin Stitt and somehow actually influencing the electorate. I’m giving them way too much credit here, but it’s kinda surprising that so many people in Tulsa are buying into the Republican party after all the ruin they’ve left our state in. Oklahoma City, however, is not in any better shape…
BREAKING NEWS: White Men Control Oklahoma City
Most of OKC's commissions and boards that shape municipal policy are largely white and male, but city leaders are working to change that https://t.co/xs8aimspIi

This is a subscriber-only article, but it doesn’t really matter, as it’s telling us something we probably already knew. Of course, this problem isn’t strictly limited to OKC, it’s actually statewide:

Wow, another paywall article that is telling us things we already knew. It’s almost like they know it’s not subscribing for the real content.
Joe Exotic Has Some Bones In His Closet
— KOCO-5 Oklahoma City (@koconews) October 27, 2018
Is there a haunted tiger graveyard in Wynnewood?! I’m not too shocked. I took Patrick’s recommendation and dressed as Joe Exotic for Halloween this year (picture below), and decided to watch some of his old Youtube videos for inspiration. One of the videos involved his trying to break up a fight between some of the tigers, and in between sniping them with tranquilizer darts, he was shooting a live revolver into the pen, for whatever reason. I don’t think he was trying to hurt the animals, but it seemed like an incredibly irresponsible thing to do. Anyways, here’s me paying tribute to one of the dumbest gubernatorial candidates I’ve seen in this state in my lifetime:
Make Edmond Weird?
— KFOR (@kfor) October 28, 2018
Some guy is making a bunch of metal silhouettes of heads to be placed next to the I-35 in Edmond. For a city that is considered a stretch of chain restaurants and generally devoid of unique culture, I salute this artist. The kicker, however, is that the project is being funded by the owner of OnCue. I challenge Love’s and QuickTrip to follow suit and commission similarly weird public art.
Here's an early look at Halloween. Yes, it looks wet. However, most of the rain falls before sunset. You can still expect a chilly day with the rain tapering off after 6 PM. The wind will relax by 9 PM. Still watching this system closely and we'll keep you updated! #okwx @NEWS9 pic.twitter.com/oVzQDf77R5

Whatever shitty late-90’s PC game that this graveyard is from, I’m into it. It’s time to pay more attention to local weather forecasts that are stylized after the free CD-R’s that came included with shrinkwrapped copies of PC Gamer back in the day.
TLO Inside Sports Blitz Ultimate Report Final Yard
It was a big weekend for the big three local sports teams.
The #Sooners roll into "Championship November" with momentum after 51-14 win over K-State.
Oklahoma is nation's only team that hasn't lost a November game during the past 3 seasons.

Kyler Murray looked like the best player of all-time, Kennedy Brooks is making people forget Rodney Anderson, and the defense showed marked improvement. There’s a decent chance that may last through November until OU gets exposed again in the playoff.

OSU’s lanky walk-on QB was hotter than a pile of Eskimo Joe’s cheese fries, and the Cowboys were finally able to not choke away a game against an overrated Texas squad. The win helped OSU’s bowl chances, and perhaps even more importantly to OSU, hurt OU’s college football playoff chances. I guess that’s why fans embarrassingly stormed the field after the win.
OKC is on the board with a 117-110 win over the Suns. Westbrook 23-9-7 (8-13 shooting), George 23-4-5 (9-15 shooting), Noel 20 and 15, Patterson 17, Grant 14, Schroder 12 and 7 assists.

Behind a surprising sign of life by Nerlens Noel, The Thunder finally won a game. If they can play one of the worst teams in the NBA every night, they may actually make the playoffs.
