After two weeks of heated competition, nail-biters and voting controversies, we're finally at the Ogle Madness VIII Championship Game. The entire competition had morphed from a silly spring content filler into a symbolic battle of the two things Oklahomans love most – sports and weather.
Here's your final matchup:
(2) Russell Westbrook vs. (2) Gary England
Yes, the bionic point guard goes up against the holy weather deity. This is the first all-male finals in Ogle Madness history, which proves that we're all maturing. It's also the second meeting in Ogle Madness history between Lord Gary and Westbrook. Way back in Ogle Madness V, Westbrook beat Gary in the Elite Eight en route to losing in the finals to Emily Sutton.
The Final Four matchup for both contestants wasn't very close. Russ spun Joleen Chaney like a tilt-a-whirl while Gary England stormed through Olivia Munn with the might of a maxi-wedge grinder. If you want to check out how each person got here, and see how the entire Ogle Madness VIII bracket played out, you can view it here.
Anyway, so who will join Lauren Richardson, Kristen Chenoweth, Kevin Durant, Emily Sutton and Lacey Swope in Ogle Madness history? Vote after the jump. Polls are open through tomorrow.
Also, let's give a round of applause to Tony for being our guide through all of Ogle Madness VIII. If you think voting is monotonous and gets kind of old, imagine what it's like having to put together all these posts. He'll be back on Wednesday with the Championship Game results.
