In the News

Gary Washburn sheds some light on how the former Sonics are adjusting to life in Oklahoma City, whether it's tossing cermonial coins at a high school football game or getting denied entry to nightclubs because of their race, today in the PI.

Speaking only for myself, I've moved on from this team. Brian Robinsonat SonicsCentral made a point a while ago about how emotionally unattached most Sonic fans were to this roster, and I have to agree. If this had been the Payton/Kemp/Schrempf Sonics, or the X/Chambers/Ellis Sonics, the pain would be much, much higher.

Suffice it to say I miss the Sonics, but I don't miss this roster. For all the lousy things I can say about Clay Bennett, at least he took the team when we cared for them the least.

And that is the kind of "support" the Sonics enjoyed in recent years in Seattle. Great sports fans.

And when the OKC Blunder spend the next 10 years playing like they played here the last 10 years, which is about as well as they played on Wednesday, we'll just see what kind of "support" they have there.

Keep your snarky judgements of our support to yourself until you've had the experience to back them up.

Yeah well that was all part of the plan don't you think? It would've been a lot harder to move them if the team was having a great season last year...

Yeah, gotta love how the media blows things out of proportion. Now one was denied entry, and the issue was dress code, not race, but keep believing the sky is pink instead of blue. It's what two-bit Americans are good at.

The sky in OK isn't pink, it's Red. Oklahoma had the second highest McCain percentage in the nation, second only to Wyoming.
