Author: Clark Matthews

Clark Matthews is an editor and founder of The Lost Ogle. He is the son of an amateur storm chaser, and was raised believing that Gary England was, in fact, a deity. His childhood was spent following “Those Terrible Twisters” presentations as if they were Phish concerts. Now that the NBA is in OKC, his goals in life are to make J.J. Redick a member of the Thunder, and to vote for Brad Henry when he campaigns as Gary England’s running mate in the 2016 Presidential elections.
