basketball bionics. not just a regular team.

Woohoo, I'm rockin' my one page a day snail pace on the paper-- suuuuck! But anyways, there are more important things in the world, right? (no) Like how absurd it is to call the former Seattle Supersonics the OKC Sonics. Please, please, please don't ever let them become the Utah Jazz of Oklahoma. I mean for goodness sakes, I've never heard any jazz in this state. But then "Utah Mormon Tabernacle Choir" is not a very catchy name for a basketball team. Then again, I suppose the "Oklahoma City WeDon'tFuckin'BuildAirplanesHere" isn't too hip either.

UPDATE: It just occurred to me. There are tons of Sonics in Oklahoma City! WTF was I thinking??!?!?

I believe we got the Jazz from New Orleans.

My point exactly-- moving a team and not changing the name is ridonk-i-donk.

A coworker suggested okc theives, since clay stole the team. I think they should go with okc 89ers to commemorate the land rush, another steal.

Now there's a thought. They could call the beer garden the "Trail of Beers".

I'm pretty sure I'm going to hell for that.
