Mailbag: Game of Free Harden Baron Beards
12:19 PM EDT on May 18, 2012
It's Friday. That means it's mailbag time! Last week's winning email was sent to us by Bob and features Kevin Ogle with mini-KISS. Bob has scored a $25 Gift Certificate to Kaiser's Bistro for sending the winning email.
Here are this week's:
It seems like every thing coming from the website has to do with the Thunder. Is The Lost Ogle not aware that our city's other team, the Oklahoma City Barons, are in the Western Conference Finals of the American Hockey League.
Yeah, we're aware. The thing is we don't really care, so why would we write about it?
That being said, I went to a couple of Baron's games this year and it wasn't that bad. In fact, it was kind of fun. The quality of play is about 10,000 times better than the Oklahoma City Blazers and they even have cheerleaders and girls on ice skates. Plus, you can buy a cheap seat and set just about anywhere you want. Good luck to them in the playoffs.
Subject: Aubrey Gossip
Heard this from a friend of a friend. He's been in The Coach House every night this week, with his own wine.
The Couch House, in case you are not aware, is the really nice and expensive Nichols Hills restaurant that's owned by Chef Kurt Fleischenfferefefreefdeffffereferor or whatever, so it's not a surprise that Aubrey McClendon is allegedly drowning his sorrows away there each evening. I'd do the same thing if I were related to Kate Upton by marriage .
Instead of shirts, I think the Chesapeake Arena should hand out free fake beards for the Thunder-Laker games.
This may be the best idea to pop up in the mailbag. 18,000 people wearing fake beards on at a Thunder playoff game would be amazing. Plus, you could wear the beard to the next game, too. Those cheap cotton t-shirts they give you before playoff games dry up and dissolve after you toss them in the dryer.
I just found out I have HBO on demand and consequently watched season one of Game of Thrones in two days.
How do you think the Ogle clan would have fared on that show? Would they be too proud to kiss Gary England's ring?
Now that Breaking Bad is on temporary hiatus, Game of Thrones is currently my favorite TV show. It's kind of like rated-R version of Lord of the Rings plus King Arthur plus softcore porn. Basically, it's pretty awesome.
I'm thinking a great post on this site would be to match-up Oklahoma celebrities with their counterpart on Game of Thrones. The most difficult person to figure out would be Christina Fallin. Would she be Prince Joffrey or the Mother of Dragons? That's a tough decision.
Why has the unfortunate murder of a homeless man (Bicycle Bob) in Edmond generated so much publicity?
I'm not sure. I think there are several factors.
1. He was murdered by a cold-blooded killer who just wanted to see a man die. That's pretty sadistic.
2. Bicycle Bob was a homeless man living in Edmond. If he were a homeless man in Oklahoma City, no one would have cared.
3. His name was Bicycle Bob!!!
