Kevin Ogle visits Shire…

He stopped by for a good cause...

One of my favorite holiday traditions is watching all the promo spots our local news channels run during commercial breaks around the holiday season. 

They still do those, right?

You know, the one where David Payne or Mitch Jelniker or whoever puts on a Christmas sweater, poses for some shots with the family in front of the Christmas tree, and then briefly shares some warm and fuzzy holiday memories for 15 seconds before Blue Bloods.

This year, KFOR appears to be forgoing those programming cliches to promote something more worthwhile and still cliched – promoting a local charity!

For example, they recently sent Kevin Ogle – a.k.a. Frankenogle – to the Shire region of Central Oklahoma to promote the Salvation Army’s “Angel Tree” program, which allows Oklahoma viewers to “offer a merry Christmas to someone in need.”

That’s awesome! I bet after that pic was taken, all the Salvation Army volunteers treated Kevin Ogle to a second breakfast and some pipe-weed!

Okay, I’m just kidding around. Kevin Ogle is like 8-feet tall and makes everyone he stands next to look like Hobbits. When he met Chet Holmgren at Thunder media day, the first thing Chet said was “Holy shit you’re tall!” 

Also, it is nice to see that Kevin Ogle has warmed up over all these years and is supporting a good cause. It seems like it was just yesterday that he got in trouble with the law after chasing down those kids from the boys and girls club who stole his goose the laid all the golden eggs! 

I do have one question – Since Kevin is promoting charity, does this mean we won’t get him featured in any of those holiday spots I mentioned above? I hope that's not the case! It would be nice and refreshing to see Promo Joe get Kevin and his Ogle family dressed-up in Holiday attire and gathered around their 50-foot-tall Norwegian spruce Christmas tree at the family armory “Chiron” outside Heavner, shining their war hammers and giving gifts all while sharing holiday memories over warm goblets of Glögg.

Anyway, if you want to support the Salvation Army’s “Angle Tree” program, please do. It’s a great cause that can bring some joy and holiday cheer to people who need it. 

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
