I don’t know

Please tell Jennie to stop saying “ I don’t know”. She is supposed to know. You don’t hear Barry say that very often.

DingleBerry Tramel is the Gonzo Mr Magoo of the OKC Thunder

Berry Tramel is unOklahoman.
He is goes out of his way to confront OKC Thunder players on a regular basis and he uses this workplace harassment to raise his profile.
I have no idea how he is still employed at The Oklahoman. I really hope the next generation of Thunder players gets to enjoy their careers without DingleBerry hanging around.
Unfortunately, his toxicity has spread to other staff writers and now they all wallow in DingleBerry juice. At this point the entire paper is a superfund site in desperate need of cleaning.

Great for an avid thunder fan

It was sad when Eric left but this new guy is getting the hang of it, he’s cool. I used to not like Maddie, but she’s really grown on me in the year and a half I’ve been listening to this. There are a lot of podcasts I listen to, not really any of them have women- just an observation, I don’t think it’s a sexist thing at all. A lot of people have celebrity crushes, (mine is Melinda Trump)and my podcast crush is Maddie Lee. Also, Maddie if you’re reading this I’m in high school so I hope this creeps you out a little less, or not at all hopefully! Anyways, keep it up you two. 5 stars all the way.
