Bizarre (and brief) article from Puget Sound Business Journal's Steven Goldsmith about the residual effect of the Sonics leaving KeyArena. Goldsmith makes a sort-of claim that the Key is doing just fine without the Sonics, because Roller Derby has filled the void.
Much better is the PI's story this morning from Casey McNerthey, which paints a completely different picture (and, in my opinion, a much more accurate one) of how the area surrounding KeyArena has become a ghost town.
Best of all, though, is the link provided to the PI's coverage of the Sonics' championship 30 years ago. If you click on the link to the PDF (it's a large file, so beware), you may recognize a picture at the bottom right corner. Just one question: How is it possible that the PI is unable to conjure up a better quality representation of their old issues? Did they sell off all the scanners when the paper went belly-up?
