Former Lieutenant Governor and Oklahoma Sooner quarterback Jack Mildren passed away May 22 after a battle with cancer. He was 58.
Mildren served Oklahoma as lieutenant governor from 1990 to 1994 and then unsuccessfully ran against Frank Keating in the governor's race.
Democrat Leader Danny Morgan said his thoughts were with Mildren's family.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Lieutenant Governor Jack Mildren's family tonight," Morgan, D- Prague, said in a statement. "Oklahoma has lost one its greatest ambassadors tonight.

Moments after the NBA OKC issued press release this morning detailing the team's 2008-09 schedule, some very savvy surfers at TheLostOgle managed to visit and save a screenshot of what appears to be the Oklahoma City Thunder's schedule.
However, for those who were a day late and a dollar short to nba.com/schedules/?team=thunder did not see what our friends there did:

Apparently it is officially unofficial that the team will be the Oklahoma City Thunder. Let the jokes begin.
