I guess we know why Emily Virgin didn’t like her Ogle Madness draw!
Capping one of the most unexpected runs in tournament history, Norman mayor Breea Clark – a 12-seed in the West Region – took down Oklahoma severe weather princess Emily Sutton in the Ogle Madness XIII Championship Match by an 865 (52%) – 794 (48%) margin.
Clark celebrated the victory by announcing she’s running for reelection in 2022.
Made a special announcement at my party tonight. No, I'm not running for Governor. I'll leave that to Emily Sutton. I've still got work to do in Norman. Mark your calendars. Feb. 8, 2022 #localgov #clarkfornorman #ClarkforMayor #Clark2022 https://t.co/0xIuRuFu2F

The championship battle against Sutton – a two-time Ogle Madness champion who stoically refused to even acknowledge she was even in the tournament, much less ask for votes – was an all-timer.
Clark rushed out to an early lead, but Sutton quickly caught up like a storm chaser tracking down a derelict tornado on Oklahoma backroads. Sutton then surged to a lead by employing her vaunted squall line offense, but an investigation by the Ogle Madness parliamentarian discovered 247 fraudulent votes that were illegally cast for Sutton that originated from the IP address 2607:fb90:4454:cb85:0:3:cd6:5701.
After those votes were removed like invalid signatures on a recall petition, the contest was a dead heat. Clark took a slim lead into the final seconds, all while Sutton – petered out after encountering a surprise downdraft – slowly dissipated like a dying thunderstorm on the distant horizon. When the final buzzer sounded, Clark stood alone.
I’d like to congratulate the Mayor for a well-earned victory, and actually having fun with Ogle Madness and encouraging people to vote. I’d also like to thank all our loyal readers who cast over 30,000 votes in Ogle Madness XIII. You guys and gals and other pronouns make Ogle Madness what it is, and we appreciate you for it. I’d also like to give props to Lucas for being the guy that did most of the writing and copying and pasting for Ogle Madness XIII.
Anyway, this year’s tournament was a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to do it again next year if this website is still in existence. Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
