When Will This Farce End?

posted by on March 14 at 16:54 PM

Sherman Alexie convinced me to love the Sonics. His stories make me happy. If the Sonics make him happy, then I’m all for keeping them around. In my dream world, the Trailblazers have their bags packed and are waiting for a vacancy in KeyArena before they move here.

While Mr. Bennett pretends he’ll keep the team here, his fellow Oklahomers announced today they’ll pave the Sonics’ path from Seattle with tax-payer money.

At what point can we all stop pretending? Wouldn’t this Band-Aid hurt less if we just ripped it off quickly?

It will end when they realize we in Seattle won't give in to blackmail.

Portland will never let the Blazers leave they would have an actual paramilitary uprising. the Blazers are literally the only game in town. Paul Allen would earn an eternity of hatred if he moved the team.

That said i am converting to the Trailblazer faithful. Go Roy

@1 Werd Will.

Let's buy them tickets and make it happen faster.

Bring on the NHL to the Eastside as a replacement pro franchise!

We're getting MSL too. The NBA (and its broken business model) can kiss my ass.

er .... MLS, not MSL. But you know what I meant.

I believe the preferred term is "Oklahomies".
