A week on NewsOK: Jumping off a building, a Thunder victory and a Royal Wedding
If your friends jumped off a cliff …read the story to find out all the answers. Actually, you might not get all the answers — the ‘why’ remains elusive. Regardless, we had a story on Sunday, and it was so popular that we left it in a prominent spot on the site on Monday.
Cram for the marathonpage devoted to the event. We have an outstanding interactive piece, some great stories and a terrific blog from some OPUBCO employees that are running this year. I recommend checking it out this weekend.
A humble Mr. Lackmeyer
Steve Lackmeyer told his tale of becoming a social media superstar in his column this week: “On Sunday, I topped 2,000 followers, and I’m listed on 124 ‘news lists.’ Consider carefully that many of these folks know I’m a social media curmudgeon who joined the conversation kicking and screaming.” Steve wrote this column to admit publicly how wrong he was about the power and usefulness of social media. Steve is many things … a blogger, a Twitter star, a personality, a top-shelf reporter … but he’s also clearly self-assured enough to confess his own social media sins.
The aftermath of a Thunder lossDarnell Mayberry weighed in. Berry Tramel weighed in. Sports Editor Mike Sherman weighted in. Thunder star Kevin Durant and coach Scott Brooks weighed in. Berry finally asked the tough questioned to Westbrook on Tuesday at practice – the video is below (scroll way to the bottom). It was the story of the day on Wednesday — as it well should have been. What all the commotion and concern shows me is just how popular the Thunder is. It shows just how much this community is hanging on the swinging moods and every movement of the team. That’s the stuff of sports fanatics. Hyper-analysis and over-reaction of sports fans … it’s not just for college football anymore. At NewsOK, we’re more than happy to help you get all the info you need to feed your sports hunger. We’re right there with you.
