The Oklahoman doesn’t want Jenni Carlson to be a Thunder TV Analyst…

Last week, we encouraged TLO readers to nominate Jenni Carlson as the new Thunder TV analyst for some goofy reader engagement / contest / space killer thing The Oklahoman was doing. We figured it would be a funny thing to do because it would put The Oklahoman in the awkward spot of having to treat Jenni's nomination seriously. Great idea, huh?

Well, not if you work for The Oklahoman. I guess they didn't like the thought of Jenni Carlson and Brian Davis teaming up to form the most awful sports broadcasting team in history. They ignored the will of the people despite these Twitter nominations:

Actually, NewsOK.com seemed warm to the idea at first:

But then some wise guy had to make fun of Jenni's creepy fascination with Landry Jones-Hand:

At that point, the NewsOK Sports Social Media Guy really had no clue what was going on. Then again, do you really expect an employee with The Oklahoman sports department to have any clue about what's going on?

What's really sad and tragic about this is that Jenni liked the idea of being the Thunder Analyst:

If that dude was being serious, I have to agree with Jenni. He was being way too kind.

Anyway, I guess you can check out The Oklahoman's list of possible replacements for Grant Long. I'm going to warn you, it's pretty boring. They probably should have come up with a list of possible new customers for Oklahoma City Payday Loan Lenders instead. That would have been a fun one. We could have nominated Jenni for it, too.
