I lobbied unsuccessfully for it as our state quarter, so now I am pitching it as the new mascot for Oklahoma City’s NBA team. The flathead catfish.
The Oklahoma City Flatheads has a cool ring to it, and who wouldn’t buy a jersey with big ole’ catfish grinning at you. (i.e. Carolina Mudcats baseball cap. I have one and wear it all the time).
There is nothing more Okie than noodling for flatheads. My second choice, Oklahoma City Noodlers.
People think Oklahomans are a bunch of rednecks anyway, so why not capitalize on it?
