Before each Thunder home game, the Ford Center plays a short segment called “The Oklahoman’s 3 Pointer” on the big screen over midcourt. Sports Editor Mike Sherman and reporters Mike Baldwin and Darnell Mayberry (of new short ‘do fame) provide 3 Points (original, huh?) about that night’s game.
We usually tape a day or two in advance. Tonight, the Thunder hosts the New York Knickerbockers. We taped tonight’s 3 Pointer at 10:30 am today.
This is the Knicks’ only trip to town, and a chance for OKC to see how coach Mike D’Antoni’s shoot in Seven Seconds or Less philosophy is playing on Broadway. It worked wonders in Phoenix. The Knicks, who are in the midst of an Extreme Roster makeover, are 13-19 and are coming off their first win over the Celtics in four years. Hungry New York basketball fans aren’t complaining.
We tape here at the OPUBCO Studios. Todd Fraser converts them to tape and runs them down to the Thunder offices at Leadership Square.
I’m passing this along from Tanner Herriott. On the surface, it’s the most complete, oh-mama phone out there, the Pomegranate phone: browser, phone and GPS. But then it offers more: coffee brewing, shaver and harmonica.
And then you realize after watching all the cheesy scenario videos about the whizbang features…. it’s all a marketing site for…. Nova Scotia. That’s right, Canada.
First, that’s kinda cool. Second, they reeeally have a lot of time on their hands to build this site and create the videos.
And apparently I have just enough time to write about it.
