Meet Your Ogle Madness XIV Champion…

4:47 AM EDT on April 7, 2022

Cinderella gets the crown!

In an upset that local historians will be talking about for ages, Norman Bear – the upstart 12-seed from the Midwest Region – roared past (1) Emily Sutton this week to take home the Ogle Madness XIV championship.

Here's the final score:

Also known by the name Bear E. Switzer, Norman Bear becomes the first non-human-based lifeform to win Ogle Madness. He's the first deceased champion, too!

When reached from his cave on Honeysuckle Lane next to the rainbow bridge in bear Heaven, Norman Bear had this to say:

"Grrrr. I appreciate the support and votes from The Lost Ogle community. Grrrr. I proudly share this victory with all other bears, omnivores and other hibernators across the world who have... grrrrrrr.... been murdered by the Oklahoma Wildlife Department. They should be held accountable for their crimes. Grrrrr."

While the Norman Bear victory party is still going strong at the Oklahoma City Zoo, things were dark and dreary with a 100% chance for showers at the KFOR weather center.

This is the second consecutive year Emily Sutton's made it to the Ogle Madness championship match and left empty-handed. Honestly, the local weather community isn't taking it very well. Flags are being flown at half-mast at National Weather Service in Norman, Marla Morgan hasn't left her she-shed, and Reid Timmer has announced he will not wear his seatbelt in the Dominator this week in a show of solidarity.

Anyway, I'd like to thank all of this year's Ogle Madness contestants, all of our readers for voting on the matchups each day, and Addison for helping keep things up and running behind the scenes.

Until next year, stay with The Lost Ogle. We'll keep you advised.
