Is it getting warmer? No, really…

Man what a nice day! 72 here. Perfect. For our MF out there everywhere else it seems, hang in there. Just think of it as a preview of global warming. Sort of “warming you up” for it! Ah ha ha ha ha ha….uh….oh crap, we’re totally dead.

Dude, I just found out the Sonics were sold to some dude in Oklahoma. Oklahoma Super Sonics. Do they even have planes there? I haven’t been this sad since we traded Kemp. Actually he had bloated out to like 400 pounds and had about 14 paternity suits against him (1 in 4 people in Seattle are Shawn Kemp’s kid, that’s a fun fact!). To be fair, Sikma was having babies every 3 months I’m pretty sure. 1979 was a CRAZY year around here! I remember when the Seahawks were going to leave and these buses were pulling out from their headquarters and the news showed like 5 dudes there and 1 of them sort of stood in front of the bus and kind of pushed it and then got the hell out of its way. It was three things.

1. Sad.
2. Very much not like “tankman” in China
3. A sign that maybe they should leave, just because of how much it was well, see #1.

    Well, living in Oklahoma, I think we are trying to steal the hornets from NOLA first. If anything, I hope they fix up or make a nicer place for the sonics to play. And since Oklahoma is a flat and barren wasteland, we have an over abundance in planes, with no where to go. I do happen to know a few state representatives here and I really have heard more talk about the hornets more than anything about the sonics. Oh well, a state that is known for Mickey Mantle and Wayne Coyne will take whatever, I can say that since I live here. But being from Washington, could they be the sonics if they weren’t there? I think not.
