Amazing haul turned Thunder into contender

Sometimes sucking is the best thing to do.


Sports

Clark Matthews
The news of the Thunder’s 112-107 loss to the Denver Nuggets Jan. 19 was lost in the wake of surprise headlines when Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov announced that afternoon that his team, the New Jersey Nets, was no longer interested in acquiring Denver star Carmelo Anthony.

Shopping and signing off

There's one last opportunity to shop before I'm out of here.

What's red and green and bedazzled all over? Mistletoe Market, that's what. (I'll be here all day with amazing jokes. You should hear the one about a grasshopper walking into a bar.) Mistletoe Market is the shopping event for the suburban set. It's not one that I ever buy much at, but I've gone nearly every year with a friend. Mostly for the people watching.

This year, The Junior League's annual market — which raised $160,000 for its community programs last time — is next Friday through Sunday. But, there's a new venue, the Cox Convention Center. Get all your Old World crosses and sparkly burnout tees from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 14-15, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 16.

And if you want to get the choice picks, the "Sip, Shop and Mingle" private preview party is held from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. The preview party is $40 in advance, or $50 at the door.

Mistletoe Market kicks off the market season in the metro — all are a great spot to find holiday gifts. The Girlie Show will be held Nov. 4-5, and the Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar follows on Dec. 10.

And with that, I'm out of here. For once, it's not to shop. I am approaching my last day at Oklahoma Gazette before I move to Denver. Yeah, the place in Colorado. I've never actually been to the city, but that's half the fun, right? Just nod and say yes.

I'll leave you all with an interpretive dance to what you're most likely feeling:

Things to learn in Denver


Commentary

Leslie Batchelor
The city of Denver recently played host to the Urban Land Institute’s major convention for leaders in land use and real estate development. ULI’s mission is to promote best practices in responsible land use. While the meeting was very worthwhile, even better were the lessons offered by Denver itself.

Kraft, cheesed


CFN

Gazette staff
With figurative egg sliding down his face, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft tried to explain why he let All-Pro wide receiver Wes Welker get away. That was unusual since the Patriots rarely offer any rationale for their decisions.

Who’s Minding the Mint?

This comedy’s in ‘Mint’ condition.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Who's Minding the Mint? is the kind of comedy they don't make anymore: all-star and mad, mad, mad, madcap. It was released in 1967, which is the year that such old-Hollywood projects were put out to pasture by such edgy fare as The Graduate and Bonnie and Clyde. I'd argue Mint — while pure, cotton-candy fluff compared to those prestige pictures — has aged every bit as well.

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Music

Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.
