Top 20 Photographs in TLO History (10-6)
9:00 AM EDT on May 20, 2013
Today we look at photos 6 -10. That's right, after the millions of pics of babies and food and pictures of buildings in other towns....hang on. It's late. I'm thinking of Facebook.
Here's 10 - 6:
10. Revealing the OU Scrotal Assassin
Date: August 23rd, 2007
What We Said: Now, after seeing his picture, and discovering that he has a wife, three kids and solid job, I hope he gets through this mess okay, and that the urge to rip the scrotum off some guy was just a one time, drunken thing.
What We Learned: That investigative blogging could be fun. Check out the date. This was the first TLO post to be hat-tipped by national website. It would be a sign of bigger and better things to come. Therefore, the Top 10 ranking.
9. Christina Fallin Engagement Photos
Date: June 21, 2011
What We Said: In fact, it’s kind of refreshing to see engagement photos of some affluent über cool goth chick wearing a push-up bra and standing next to some too-cool-for-school hipster guy who’s humming Bravery songs in his head to keep him calm.
What We Learned: Weird, bra flaunting, fedora wearing, boat piloting, odd engagement pics doth not a solid marriage make. That sucks because I think there's a possibility the photo shoot lasted longer than the marriage. That poor, poor fedora.
8. Emily Sutton Bikini
Date: January 16th, 2013
What We Said: Is it Emily Sutton’s transformation from a homely weather nerd into an F5 multi-vortex maxi-wedge severe weather babe grinder? Or is it our transformation from a little blog into one of those websites that puts a watermark logo on pics of girls in bikinis? Put me on Team Sutton.
What We Learned: We learned the girl-next-door thing isn't just an act. If that's the most tawdry pic of Emily floating around the internet, she's way better than most women. Don't believe me? Keep reading.
7. Sunny Kate Golloway
Date: September 20th, 2007
What We Said: Last year around this time, Playboy released their (NSFW Link) “Girls of the Big 12” edition. Ordinarily, a pretty exciting event. After all, we love to look at attractive women airbrushed to look even more attractive. But this time around, rumors ran rampant throughout the internet that one of the OSU women featured is actually Sunni Kate Golloway, a daughter of OU head baseball coach Sunny Golloway. Bizarre, huh?
What We Learned: College girls are already the most desired group of women on the planet. After DeadSpin, and then all other sports sites linked to the post, TLO went down for nearly 12 hours.
6. Blake Griffin Dressed in Drag (Had we got these pics today, they'd be a much bigger deal..maybe.)
Date: December 1, 2008
What We Said: I was still somewhat hesitant to post pictures of my favorite team’s best player frolicking through a summery field wearing a pink halter top and green skirt.
What We Learned: We learned a lot can change in just 5 years. That frolicking, cross dressing, monster man is now an NBA superstar monster man. I saw him and Westbrook hanging out at Speakeasy one night. Of all the nights to decide to talk to pretty women at a bar I picked the one night Griffin and Westbrook are there. Let's just say if there's two NBA players where you are, and you're not one of them, you are going to go home alone. Even if you brought someone. Trust me.
Tomorrow we count down the top five!
