It's all bull tonight on "Saving Grace."

 

Seriously.

 

A prize bull statue disappears, that's the synopsis for episode five.

 

The OKG Webmonkeys are so full of puns, we can hardly wait for 9 p.m. to roll around.

 

We can't even imagine how Oklahoma City became the home of bull.

Our very own mayor graces the style pages of a leading men's magazine this month (pictured).

 

For its September issue, Esquire magazine caught up with Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett in late June at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Los Angeles. He and a few dozen other mayors were photographed and asked a few questions.

 

Cornett talked to Esquire about rebuilding OKC's inner-city schools and downtown buildings, and said the best thing to do in town was to row on the Oklahoma River.

 

Cornett was snapped wearing a olive- khaki suit, a bright blue tie and a crisp white shirt - straight collar, not button-down - mayoral without being too dour.

The Sooner football team kicked off its season on the first of September.

Season firsts:

  • First complete pass: Sam Bradford to Juaqin Iglesias for 12 yards, second play of the game.
  • First rush for positive yardage: Backwards pass from Bradford to Iglesias for 41 yards on the third play of the game.
  • First score: 15-yard Bradford touchdown pass to Jermaine Gresham.
  • First offensive turnover: Gresham fumbled a Bradford pass  with 2:17 left in the first quarter.
  • First misuse of a pronoun: 7:34 p.m. Bob Stoops says "theirself" on the scoreboard's jumbo televions screen. (Really, it's easy to tell Stoops is not a product of his alma mater's -- the University of Iowa -- renowned writing program.) Its either himself or themselves, but never, never, theirself. Just ask former English teacher and fellow coaching colleague women's basketball coach Sherri Coale.
  • First penalty:  Personal foul penalty by Brett Bowers on a first-quarter North Texas punt.
  • First defensive tackle: Double-team effort credited to Marcus Walker and Nic Harris.
  • First tackle for loss:  On North Texas' second offensive possession, Curtis Lofton and John William tackled running back Jamario Thomas for a four-yard loss.
  • First sack: Harris tackled North Texas quarterback Daniel Meager for a 10-yard loss in North Texas' third offensive possession.
  • First defensive defensive turnover:  Lendy Holmes intercepted Meager in the third quarter.
  • First defensive touchdown:  Harris intercepted quarterback Giovanni Vizza late in the third quarter and returned it 25 yards for a score.

Perhaps an Oklahoma home-game first, the starting lineups for the offense and defense were announced during pregame festivities.

Norman native and coulda-woulda-shoulda-been Sooner football player Ryan Broyles has been suspended from the team the day before the season-opening contest.

 

Broyles is facing charges for allegedly stealing gas from a Norman convenience store.

 

Perhaps there are extenuating circumstances surrounding the arrest

During the City's public meeting about the General Obligation Fund, moderator Jennifer Eve asked Police Chief Bill Citty about Holly Hunter's "Saving Grace" television series.

 

Citty showed Eve a picture of himself and Hunter and then told the packed City Hall council chamber audience that he would fire Grace if she was one of his officers.

 

Hmm. Wonder on which grounds? Citty would have so many!

Senator arrested on suspicion of DUI

A term-limited Oklahoma State Senator, Jeff Rabon, D-Hugo, was arrested on suspicion of Driving Under the Influence of alcohol Monday following a three-car accident in which a woman was transported to a local hospital for injuries.

 

According to several reports, Rabon failed a field-sobriety test.

 

Records show that Rabon is also the author of two pieces of anti-drinking legislation, one in 2006 which would stiffen penalties involved for selling beer to minors and one this last legislative session that would ban anyone under 18 from selling low-point beer to anyone for consumption off-premises.

 

In a release supporting such legislation, Rabon said: "In 2004, 14.8 percent of Oklahoma drivers causing alcohol-related accidents were under 21. In 2003, 2,281 Oklahomans under the age of 21 were arrested for DUI - kids 18 and under accounted for about half of those arrests ... This is a public safety issue that is putting the lives of thousands of Oklahomans at risk."

 

Neither piece of legislation passed.

 

Does the senator's personal behavior really have any important relationship with legislation he would propose? Why or why not?

Apparently the hottest ticket in the state this past weekend was a ducat for the Dec. 2 'Hannah Montana' show at the Ford Center.

 

Tickets available to the public went on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday and within minutes were sold out. The Ford Center event's capacity is more than 11,000.

 

Were you able to get a ticket? Will it tear up your achy, breaky heart to miss the concert?

 

(For those not in the know in the 'tween' demo, Hannah Montana is the character played by Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter, Miley.)

 

Never fear, you can bid on tickets here.

Tonight Grace gets involved with prostitution. No, she's not decided to trade in her amateur status to become a full-fledged professional; she's actually investigating an undercover reporter's death.

 

We're just hoping the episode does not pick up where it left off last week with her unfortunate grieving-his-cat's-death colleague's body outline being traced in chalk. More creative camera work to hide body parts, yes, but no need to show us all that skin.

It's Monday and "Saving Grace" features the case of a Native American and another new relative of Grace, this time her grandfather.

We've met her brother the priest, her mother the socialite, her aunt the psychic and her nephew whose mother died in the Murrah Building bombing. Meeting the patriarch may help answer some questions. Or maybe add more colorful characters to the canvas.

At this rate, Grace's family members are right up there with the number of her sexual partners.

Oklahoma City University reminded us today they were the first school to grant famed tenor Luciano Pavarotti an honorary Doctor of Music degree in 1983.

 

The Italian singer died today.

 

Many, many dollars flowed into OETA's Festival during his televised performances so obviously he was well loved far and wide in the state.

 

Although it's been more than two decades since he made his OCU appearance, were you there? Or did you hear him perform live?
