Patrick’s Friday News Round-Up (5)

This week’s Friday News Round-Up is going to be pretty quick, as I’m under weather with yet another diverticulitis flare-up. This is the third one this year and I may need surgery soon to fix it. Getting old is fun!

To the round up!

OKC Marathon cuts off reporter after they befuddle Stitt with a real question

Just look at the reaction on this dude’s face when a reporter goes off-script:

I honestly can’t believe they just cut the reporter off. Could Bubba Stitt not just say “That’s a great question, but we’re just talking about the marathon today. Email my office for them to send a warped, propagandist message instead?”

In all fairness to the Governor, he probably figured the whole thing was one big gimmicky photo opp to show off his guns, so he wasn’t prepped to answer real questions:

Stephanie Bice pretended to be an Amazon worker for a photo

Johnmarkwayne Mullin denies he went full “Cowboy” on a covert rescue mission

As we know, Johnmarkwayne is a humble, reserved guy, so he’s obviously downplaying his involvement in this daring rescue mission. I can’t wait to see the made-for-TV movie about it starring James Woods in a couple of years.

Original “Roklahoma” Represents

Although Limp Bizkit bailed, Rocklahoma took place this past weekend without a hitch. On a related note, I found this Tweet of a news article from a very early, primitive form of the festival.

Were any of our older readers at the show? Better yet, is there anyone out there who went to both old Roclahoma and the new Rocklahoma? If so, leave a comment and tell us which one was better.

Guthrie Student participates in “National Bring Your Old Grenade to School Day.”

Well, at least the kid didn’t pull a Wayne Coyne and shut down the airport.

Anyway, I told you this would be a quick one. Have a nice weekend. Hopefully, I’ll see you next week.

New Stuff

  1. I was at the original Rocklahoma but am way too old to go to the newer version and the music at the new one isn’t quite my cup of tea. I did enjoy the old one quite a bit although the Doobie Bros. were a letdown after 3 great sets from Hagar, Benatar and Van Halen.

  2. Shitt is so glad the race is back in person? No thanks to his sorry ass.

  3. In Stitt’s Top Ten Oklahoma, that TV reporter would be either shipped to the gulag or taken out back and shot.

    I’m not comparing Stitt to Hitler, or Mao, or Stalin, or Saddam, or Haiti’s Duvalier, etc. But he definitely has strong authoritarian, monomaniacal tendencies. He bears watching. Much of his political party would welcome a strongman leader who would promise to crush the libs and restore the power of their own kind. We already know that a person with little else going for him can win a presidential nomination… and election.

    1. Well I could compare Stitt to the others. Last count about 10,000 have died of covid here. Thinking of my mom, she’s very sick, don’t know what’s wrong with her, she needs to be in hospital but no ICU space.

      So yeah, he’s a dictator and responsible for many victims.

  4. Hey, Patrick, I hope you have a buddy who dabbles in in-home surgery. Good luck with getting anything done at a hospital.

  5. Feel better, Patrick!

  6. Metamucil crackers.

  7. The Doobies, Van Halen, Benatar, Hager, Santana, Willie Nelson and Fleetwood Mac all in the Metro within a few weeks of each other. We really didn’t know how good we had it.

  8. Gross. Body by soy protein. What happens when you edge out cattle producers by pimping out land to out of state weed barons and housing developers.

  9. Our governor, our Congressional representative, ugh. As for Rocklahoma ’80, It was a decent day. Not quite Texxas Jam ’79, which was a show, but at the risk of sounding really old, yeah, we had it better than we could ever know in the Seventies. How many Hall of Fame acts came through OKC during that period? Hell, expand that number to 1982. How and why this area was a designated stop on everyone ‘s tour, has never been clear to me.

    1. Led Zep, 1970 Fairgrounds Arena

  10. The original Rocklahoma bit of a warm early September day, remember Michael McDonald complaining pretty much all set about the heat, he couldn’t wait to get off the stage. I liked the MM Doobies, VH kind of gets on the nerves, Hagar yawn.. Eddie VH and Valerie Bertinelli supposedly met back stage her dad with GM opening the plant in MWC. Did go to that Santana concert at the zoo. Kind of a transcendent experience or it could have been the good weed.
